When I was in high school, there was this really popular song we used to dance to at parties. Went a little something like this; “Shawty had dem apple bottom jeans, bootz with the furrr, the whole club was looking at huurrr”. As you can see the lyricism was quite poetic and emotional.
Anywhoo apple bottom jeans are an actual brand of jeans designed for someone with an apple body … just kidding I don’t know if that’s true but let’s go with it. Point is, when you know your body shape, dress for it wholeheartedly. Go even as far as to buy brands made for your body shape if they exist. When those don’t exist, then piece items together that flatter your body the most. But how you ask?
NOTE: WITH ALL OUTFITS, ALWAYS TRY TO HIGHLIGHT THE SMALLEST PART OF YOUR BODY
Long cardigans create the illusion of a waist. They hide your sides and show a small part of the waistline. They also create long lines which de-emphasizes your midsection.
Tops that cinch or wrap around the waist are great for creating a waistline. Doing this balances your midsection.
HIGH WAIST TUCKS EVERYTHING IN Aim for straight leg or boot cut, whichever style you prefer. Avoid skinny jeans and look for long line hemlines.
