Trends are not for everybody or for EVERY BODY.

Diane Pollack

Recently I was featured in an article on The LIST about clothing hacks to flatter your figure. I wanted to share it with you, along with some of the great things the other experts had to add.

And then I thought I would expand upon it and make an entire insider newsletter about it. So here you are, hope you find some useful tidbits.

When your eye sees large expanses of fabric it says "large". Color blocks in any direction, seaming and vertical panels will trick your eye by breaking up large areas, into smaller sections and hence you look smaller.

This can also be achieved by accessories such as jewelry, belts and scarves breaking up large expanses of fabric.

Scoop necks and V-necks break up a large chest area with skin. Turtlenecks will elongate your chest and are great for smaller chested women.

Boatnecks are good for narrow shoulders and wide hips, as it will even out your proportions. The same is true for flared / bootleg pants  as they will balance out wide hips (and they are trending NOW!)

Shoes that match pants, are skin colored, low cut toes, or cut out sides, will elongate legs.

Wrap dresses, loose, untucked, drapey tops will all help to hide a tummy.

Your body portions play into what will look good on you too. If you have a long torso - wear empire or cropped jacket. The opposite is true for a short torso - wear drop waist or tunic and your belt below your waist.

Now make sure you read the rest of the article for more great info.
