Women love to be seen and there’s no better way to feel great about yourself than to be confident when you go out. Whether you want to go to restaurants, hit the local clubs, go to work or just out shopping, looking your best is a great way gain confidence in your appearance. Things like your body shape and style will matter but you should also consider what colours you are wearing, how much makeup you put on, and what you find appealing. The main thing to remember is that you want to feel confident, beautiful and classy with yourself, not an image someone else gives you. Finding the right clothes, the styles you love and wearing them in a way that flatters you is the best way to achieve this goal.
Your Body Shape Matters
Designer women’s clothes are made to flatter the body, not the other way around. You’ll notice that many models are very slender and thin but this is actually because it shows off the clothes to their best advantage. Your goal is to have the clothes show you to your best advantage, a different matter entirely.
Match your frame to the designer women’s clothes you are looking for by choosing according to your build. Usually the idea is to balance out your frame to create an appealing silhouette rather than wearing something that might add bulk somewhere else on your body.
Matching Clothing to Your Body
Women with wide shoulders should choose V-necks and flared waist bands to minimise the shoulders and draw attention to the hips and face. Women with large hips should do the opposite, wearing decorated collars such as the popular Peter Pan collar or even intricate cut-out shoulders or jewelled details to draw attention up. Try wearing a belt to accentuate the waist and you’ll have made your waist look smaller and balanced your frame out.
Slender women with little to no curves can wear dresses that flare out with a belt to add the illusion of curves. If you have a larger waist, try belting where you are the smallest to accentuate it, and then wear something flattering to your figure. Remember, looking good in designer women’s clothes is about shape not size. You can check online for a variety of women’s shapes and what you should wear with them if you aren’t already familiar with it.
Get Correct Measurements
It could be said that there is nothing worse in the world of designer fashion than wearing ill-fitting clothes. Unless you are looking for a baggy bohemian look and purchased something too big on purpose, there is almost no excuse for not getting fitted. You can find your correct measurements by measuring your bust, beneath your bust (calculate your bra and dress size), your waist at its smallest and your hips and your rear at their widest. Those few measurements can help you find trousers that fit, shirts that flatter your bust and of course, the confidence to wear it outside. And guess what, how big or how small you are doesn’t matter! Marilyn Monroe, one of the sexiest women of all time, was a size M-L for most of her life. Audrey Hepburn on the other hand was a size XXS. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes so accept yours for who you are. It’s the biggest step towards being confident in your clothes.
