Choose clothes with a peplum
Anyone who reads fashion magazines will know that the peplum waist is very much in fashion, and has been for the past three seasons (at least). A peplum is a frill that extends out from the waist over the hips, which can create an instant hourglass figure on even the most boxy of body types. Nipping in the waist and flaring out over your belly, a peplum is a great way of flattering your figure.
Try a jumpsuit
A great alternative to the ubiquitous maxi dress, jumpsuits are flattering and chic. If you’re self-conscious about your legs, a wide-leg jumpsuit teamed with a pair of killer heels can make your legs look longer without revealing too much. Combine with shapewear underneath (you can buy shapewear at isme.com), and you can achieve a sleek silhouette even in a clingy jersey jumpsuit.
Throw on a tailored blazer
Tailored pieces are flattering for all body types, and one big trend this season is to throw a tailored blazer casually over any outfit to add instant flair. A blazer will immediately make you look well dressed, nipping in your waist and accentuating your shoulders. Choose a blazer with one button and a V-neck for a really cutting edge look.
This season’s trend for lace sleeves is the perfect compromise for anyone who loves sleeveless dresses but always finds themselves reaching for a cardigan to cover their upper arms. Lace sleeves are light, giving the illusion of a sleeveless dress while hiding fleshy upper arms (affectionately known as ‘bingo wings’) from full view. Explore these flattering looks the next time you hit the high street or shop online, and you can look fashionable and flawless this winter.
