Fashion Tips & Tricks: Body Shape

Get naked in front of the mirror. Ask yourself what you love about your body and what you hate. The things you hate are what you will hide; the things you love are the things you can afford to show off. When looking in the mirror, be honest and objective. What you hate might be the envy of your best friend (consider Susannah's big breasts!) (By Trinny & Susannah from "What Not to Wear"- The LifeStyle Channel, Foxtel)
Flat-chest: Most women who are flat-chested have a tendency to carry their weight on their bottom. So show off those arms with a lovely sleeveless round neck top. Most importantly, don't make breasts that aren't there. Just accept it and, if you want to be sexy (and you are in your 30s), show a bit of nipple, gently. Pear-shape: Never wear jackets that cut you across the bottom. Either wear a jacket that ends at the waist (to show your bum off) or wear one to the knee (to cover it up). Short-waisted with long legs: If you have a short body and long legs, chances are you have big breasts. Pull them up with a really good bra so they won't accentuate your short waist. Also, wear short jackets that hit the hip-bone. Long body with short legs: Never wear cropped trousers; they make your legs shorter. Layer your top half. Like Trinny, wear a long t-shirt under a sweater to break up your long back. Don't forget to keep your trousers very long and wear a higher heel to put yourself back in proportion. Large-size: Don't tent yourself and don't be afraid to wear tighter clothes. Do wear a plunging neckline, which will show off a beautiful d�collet�. Short neck: Buy deep V or low fronted tops. High necks will only make your neck look shorter. Broad shoulders and slim hips: Buy flat-fronted long trousers and skirts cut on the bias.
