FINDING YOUR RIGHT STYLE: A Client’s Story
We all flip through fashion magazines and fawn over how cute the newest fashion trends are for this season. I know I am guilty of trying to resemble a lot of these trends in my outfits. I think that because it’s the trend for the season, that by incorporating it into my outfit, I will automatically look cute. Needless to say, this is not true and I had a wake-up call during my Style Analysis. I learned that because everyone has a different body shape, that not all clothing silhouettes would look good on all of us. We want to enhance our body’s silhouette and to do this we have to make sure we are wearing the right clothing silhouette. I use to think that because I was big busted that I should put a belt on when I wore dresses. I didn’t realize that by doing this, I was making myself look heavier than I actually was. After consulting with Elaine, I realized that my body silhouette was an Inverted Triangle and that I should be wearing “contour” or “soft straight” clothing silhouettes. I also learned that because my legs were longer than my torso that I had to create an illusion through my clothing that my torso was longer. In the Style Analysis, you find out what clothing styles and accessories you should wear and what type of eyeglasses and hairstyles you should wear with your face shape. It truly amazed me on how blind I was to what my clothing was doing to my body silhouette. After my meeting with Elaine, people kept commenting about how thin I looked and that I looked amazing. The Body Style Analysis really helps you find the styles of clothing that will enhance your own natural beauty.
