Fashion Tips
  • Try on all of your favorite clothes. Take notes on how they fit and flatter you. Then shop for similar colors, fabrics, shapes and lengths.
  • A great fit can make an outfit, just as a poor fit can break it!
  • A well-cut suit is one of the most flattering outfits you can own. Remember: dark tones create a long line.
  • Choose a fingertip length jacket or one that falls mid-hip. Pants should be straight leg or boot cut and the hem should be worn slightly long.
  • Select flat knit, fine rib and jersey tops; Choose pants with flapless pockets, flat fronts with just enough stretch for added comfort.
  • Know thyself - Know your proportions!
    Skinny bottom half? Wear a full top over narrow pants
    Short waisted? Wear a long top and short skirt
    Petite torso? Wear a fitted top with full pants
    Long waisted? Pair a short top with long bottoms

  • Show off the trimmest parts of your body by combining a tight fitting piece with a loose fitting one.
  • Any color worn head to toe in a clean, unbroken line will produce a dynamically slimming effect.
  • Don't worry if separates don't match exactly. Tonal variations are a creative alternative.
  • Taller bodies can take larger prints and more contrast.
  • The darker a print's background, the slimmer the look.
  • Blouses: a collared shirt always gives a torso a few good inches and frames the face handsomely.
  • A slim v-neck makes the neck appear longer and is usually very flattering.
  • Boatnecks are great for minimizing waists and hips, while maximizing sexy shoulders.
  • If your legs are fuller inside, try a side slit. If your legs are fuller outside, a mid-front or back slit is a better choice.
  • There is never an excuse for panty lines! A thong is a girl's best friend - they even come with tummy control.
  • Bright colors bring attention to an area - make sure you wear them wisely and only on your most flattering body parts.
  • A shoulder bag tucked quietly under the arm is most flattering.
  • Stilettos are back and in spite of the discomfort at times - they make your legs look like a million dollars!
