Using colour to balance your body
is a great idea. Wear light colours where you re small and dark colours where larger. For example, if you have large hips,
wear dark skirts or pants and a light coloured blouse. Wearing set-in sleeves with shoulder pads will help you to balance
wide hips. The shoulder pads will add to your shoulders therefore balancing with your hips.
Don't choose clothes that are too
tight. Clothes that fit well will make you appear slimmer while tight clothes will only add pounds.
Wear tops or dresses that have a
scoop neckline with half or long sleeves to hide heavy arms and draw attention to the face and neck.
Clothes in solid colours with simple
lines will make you appear taller.
Always break in new shoes before
wearing them out for a special occasion.

colour to hide a thick waist.

Pleats add pounds. If you want to
look larger through the hips, wear pleats. If you don't, avoid pleats! · If clothes don't fit, have them altered. If they
don't fit, they'll remain in the closet.
One of the biggest trends for spring
is denim. You can find it in skirts, shorts, jeans, jackets, and shirts and even kurtas.
These are the basics measurements
you need to find your correct bra size. With a measuring tape, measure around the torso at the underarm level and under the
breasts. If the number is odd, add one to it. For example, if your measurement is 35, your bra size will be 36. Next, measure
around your bust at its fullest part. Subtract the bra size from this number.
Pin a safety pin to the inside of
your slacks in case of an emergency. If a button comes off or the zipper breaks you will be prepared.
Are your zippers sticking? Rub them
with a lead pencil and they will slide smoothly. When you buy an everyday item, try to think of at least three things you
already own that you can wear with that item.
Choose your accessories wisely. Accessories
can completely change the look of an outfit. Women with larger hips should choose jeans that are generously cut through
the hips with a flared leg.
When losing weight, don't wait to
choose wardrobe pieces. Choose pieces that will camouflage problem areas.
Broad Shoulders Wide necklines, short
sleeves and light fabrics help to visually reduce broad shoulders
Big Bust line Never wear V-necks and scoop necks
as they emphasize the chest size. High Necks work well, combined with full sleeves they work even better.
Bust line Empire Basques, V-Necks and bulkier fabrics create an illusion of a fuller bust line.
Heavy Arms Always
wear sleeves that are not fitted yet follow the body line. Avoid heavy and thick fabrics.
Heavy Hips It is important
not to wear fitted, short garments that emphasize your hips. Instead wear moderately loose and longer lengths in thicker fabrics
to give a longer and leaner look OTHER TIPS ::
Rule.No.1 : Accentuate your positives!
When searching for clothes, look for sari blouses or tops that enhance your facial features and chest area
(but not in a trashy way). Choose flattering colours for your skin tone and accessories (jewellery and hair accessories) that
direct a viewer's attention away from those features that you are self-conscious about.
Rule.No.2 : Conceal the negatives!
Avoid clothes that draw
attention to what you feel are your negative features. For instance, avoid clothing that is too tight -- that will overemphasis
your features such as tight jeans or lycra tops, light coloured pants / skirts, especially if you favour dark tops. A general
rule to follow is the rule that your tops should not be darker than your bottoms. Especially if you are well endowed in the
hip area. Another good rule is, at the very least, you should match colours of tops and bottoms. If not, draw attention
to the upper waist area by wearing dark coloured (not necessarily black) pants / skirts and vibrant coloured tops, with or
No. 3 : Come out of hiding!
Get rid of those clothes that make you feel the most frumpy! Eliminate restricting sari blouses, and baggy
pants and T-shirts from your wardrobe! These things tend to draw attention to your physical shape and only serve to make you
feel more self-conscious. A more open collared top, maybe a V-neck or a crew neck. Tops that reveal a little shoulder, can
make you feel 10 times better. It opens up the area around your face, so that even without makeup, you can feel sexy. If
you must have something concealing your neck, try a scarf. Scarves have a tendency to draw attention away from those negative
spots and allow others to focus on your beautiful smile. In fact, the shorter the scarf (just slightly bigger than a handkerchief),
the foxier you will look and feel. Try sheer / print scarves...very soft and feminine.
Rule No. 4 : If it makes you feel frumpy or not comfartable...don't
you feel self-conscious, you can't feel comfortable and much less, sexy. First of all -- find a style you are comfortable
with. If you wear Shalwar Kameez (which one admits are very comfortable), forget fabrics with writing, etc., on them. Find
fabrics with solid colours or with complimentary patterns on them. The kameez should be long enough to cover those 'trouble
spots'. When choosing a style, they should not be constricting or too clingy. There should still be room to breathe, although
not too baggy.
No. 5 : Take your time and take a friend
When shopping, take
the time to try on clothes before you leave the store. Take a friend along who can be objective in helping you find clothes
to compliment your shape. If 'sexy' or 'foxy' is what you're looking for, why not bring your spouse along? Put on a little
fashion show in the changing booth area for your significant other. Who said shopping should not be fun for your other half.
An understanding and loving partner will be supportive and may
aid you in finding outfits (party clothes, lingerie) that you feel comfortable in and that you both find sexy. Once again...be
honest with yourself. If it makes you feel frumpy, don't buy it! Don't waste your valuable fashion money, and valuable closet
space on clothes that you wear once and then never again. Take your time.
Keep in mind, no matter what your size, clothing should be functional,
yet comfortable. Your clothes should compliment you. Don't be afraid to experiment a little...a print here, a little bright
colour there...Pastels look good on just about anyone. They give your shape a softer look, regardless of your size. You don't
have to look frumpy anymore! Wear clothes that make you feel comfortable, but accentuate your positives and conceal your negatives.

You will be considered beautiful not only by your features
but by the way you dresses, by the way you present yourself, by your confidence and your style. If you have mastered all these
then you have a very lethal combination and you will be able to rule the world by your beauty and charm. However we often
make certain fashion mistakes which though according to us doesn't matter but infect these mistakes affect your sense of fashion
and style immensely.
Wearing the Wrong Colours
This is one of the biggest fashion mistakes that you can commit. Just remember one thing
that all colours don't suit your skin tone. The colour that looks great on your colleague or the actress you saw in the soap
might not look great on you. Infact it might look the contrary. Therefore you have to learn to recognize which colour suits
you and also the profession to which you are associated. Experiment with different colours and stick with the palettes that
look best on you, regardless of what's hot and happening. Don't waste your money on clothes that make you look pale and ugly.
Proper Makeup is an important aspect of fashion. For every occasion you require an appropriate makeup i.e.,
light for day, heavier for evening, sheer for sports etc. You wear different clothes for different activities in you life;
similarly your makeup should change as per occasion.
You will look complete only if
you are dressed appropriately from top to bottom. Therefore even your shoes should be appropriate for the occasion and should
go with your dress. Don't wear shabby, unpolished and rundown shoes. Polish them regularly. Use a felt tip marker on scuffs,
and put a piece of soft carpet under your feet when you drive. And most importantly, invest in a good pair if you're going
to wear them every day. Spend on your shoes that will give you comfort and will look great on you.
Wearing a size too small
If it doesn't fit, don't wear it. Squeezing into a size that is too tight for you may
feed your vanity, but it will make you appear overfed to everyone else. If the dress you are wearing is not comfortable and
you cant sit or walk properly then it is not going to make you feel beautiful at all and you are definitely not going to look
your best. Then why put yourself through that kind of torture? Find clothes that fit or have them tailored to fit and look
Visible bra lines
Make sure your bra fits you properly. It is very embarrassing if your bra's show or
it rides up in the back. Similarly get bra's that fit you properly. If your breasts sag then it's very clear that you are
not using proper bra and it's time to seek professional help.
Slips that show
The next fashion
mistake will be letting your slip show from under your skirt. Don't use the same slip for all dresses coz it might not be
proper for all. Buy slips in several lengths and replace them once the elastic wears. For the most discreet linings, buy slips
in the colours you wear most often, like black, navy, beige, and white.
are some people who smell terrible despite using good perfumes. Drink plenty of water and eat lots of fresh fruits and green
salads. Buy deodorant that works with your body. You may have to try a few to find the best one for you, and you may need
to change every now and again if your chemistry changes, like after having a baby, starting new medication, going through
menopause, or the like.
nails, chipped polish
Manicure is a must. Keep your nails clean and evenly trimmed. Always have clippers and a nail file in your purse and
desk at work for emergencies. If you're in a business environment, stick with conservative nail polish colours at work and
save the sparkly/neon/funky looks for weekends and vacations. Don't grow your nails too long if you are working. If you're

Dressing up consumes a lot of time because it is confusing and mind-boggling. Sometimes it is very difficult
to decide upon what to wear for a particular occasion and whether what we are wearing looks good on us or not. When we are
dressing ourselves, we must learn the basic principle of dressing up, and that is to keep a sense of our own personal style
apparent. Otherwise, we will feel made up or unattractive, because we are trying to duplicate someone else's look, instead
of learning to develop our own sense of style that best suits our body frame, clothing preferences and personality.
know what type of dress and what style will look great on you first and foremost you have to know your body shape so that
you are able to choose your dressing style appropriately. Following listed are the various body shapes along with their characteristics
and best style suited for them. So evaluate your body shape and just follow the basic rules of dressing up and remember to
create good balance from top to bottom.
A-Frame Dressing up
An A-frame body is one, which is narrower at the top half and wider at the lower hip and upper thigh area.
The legs are usually heavier and shorter and weight gain is mostly in the upper thighs. Women with this kind of body shape
should make their body look proportionate by widening the shoulders. It can be achieved by choosing garments with shoulder
pads or sleeve detailing.
V-Frame Dressing up
A V-frame body is one, which is wider at the bust and the shoulders appear to be wider
than the hips. Bust is usually large with a shorter torso and high waist. The legs appear thin and the tummy becomes more
prominent than the whole body. This frame should be balanced by widening the hip and upper leg area. Choosing garments that
have width and fullness in the skirt or pants.
H-Frame Dressing up
A H-frame body appears to be straight up and down. The legs are longer and thighs and belly are usually
flat. The bust is average to large and weight gain is usually through the middle. This frame should be balanced by creating
the illusion of a smaller waist. This can be accomplished by choosing either a bloused garment with a flared skirt and belted
waist, or a straight garment like a chemise dress.
8-Frame Dressing up
8-frame figure is the
perfect figure and it is perfectly balanced figure. Bust is full; waist is small, with average length and hips are perfectly
shaped. The whole body is perfectly balanced and weight gain is distributed evenly. This frame should emphasize the waist
and avoid cluttering the figure with lots of clothes and layering. Choose garments that fit the body and identify the waist.
THE BOTTOM LINE
OF FASHION IS NO MATTER HOW YOU LOOK, NEVER COMPARE YOURSELF WITH ANY BODY ELSE, JUST CARRY YOURSLEF WITH CONFIDENT AND YOU
WILL ALWAYS LOOK BEAUTIFUL & GORGEOUS.
