Given her petite frame, you might think that Cyndi is free of body woes. Yet, the truth is, like every woman, the fashion editor have one or two trouble spots that she pays particular attention to when getting dolled up (though she's all for the embrace your body message). If you've ever wondered how to dress your troubled spots, why not read on for some flattering clothing options from the true blue fashionista yourself?
Trouble Spot 1: Boyish Frame
“It’s really frustrating having a boyish frame and no curves to work with, as it makes me appear less feminine. To create the illusion of curves, I stick to the concept of “slim plus volume”. It might sound complicated but you can choose to either volume your top or volume your bottom. For the former, just go for a voluminous top and a slim bottom. A great combination will be oversized top or statement sleeves blouse with a pair of slim-cut jeans or tight skirt. As for adding volume to the bottom, a tiered skirt over a slim top or baggy sports pant with a cropped top will do the trick.”
“For days, when I feel like donning on a pretty dress, I will add a belt in muted colours without any embellishments to create a waist.”
Trouble Spot 2: Height
“Don’t get me wrong, I’m totally loving my petite frame, but there are days when I do want to create an elongated silhouette in my photos. On days like this, I will opt for a pair of high-waisted bottoms, for it shortens my torso, and makes my legs look longer and more elegant. The legs-to-torso ratio creates the appearance of height more than you might think! Otherwise, I will pick a pair of flared pants that drapes over my shoes and make sure that the fit is snug down the length of my thighs before the flare begins. For this creates the impression of a couple of extra inches of leg while focusing on my slender lines for a great overall effect.”
“I would recommend going short and showing off your legs to appear taller too. Remember to finish the look with your pair of favourite heels.”
Trouble Spot 3: Food Baby
“I have a food baby (that I lovingly named Edward) that becomes really obvious after a meal and it bothers me a lot. Thankfully, I can easily disguise it with the layering technique. Layering shifts the focus anywhere but my tummy, and I would say both waterfall and straight designs work well to create a nice vertical line which elongates my silhouette and divert the attention away from my tummy.”
Say goodbye to your tummy with HDFVEP like Cyndi does too!
