Here are some tricks for those of you with large thighs.
I am going to try to put my self in the position of some of you. I am going to put these thick cardigans inside some leggings to create big thighs. I'm sure your muscles look much better than this but it's just to give an idea. Skirts like this that are straight at the waist then open up further down are great. It's important to notice how far down the straight panel finishes as it can mean the difference between looking great and looking terrible.
In this case it is very bad as the skirt opens just where the tights start. It's best that the skirt opens up just at the upper hip area not the lower hip. As you can see the skirt opens up with pleats at the upper hip so disguises the muscles very well. It's best that the skirt starts at the waist as it will lengthen your torso. Colors like this that are not really dark but also not pastel colors will work well for you. This top has lots of details, like these double layered shoulders, which make my shoulders appear wider. This means it will attract more attention to the top of the look. This cardigan has a lot of interesting details and adds to the volume of your upper half. I'll add an eye catching necklace. Everyone will be looking at this huge bird around my neck rather than looking down to my legs. This bag that goes with the cardigan and now we're ready to go.
Be careful with the pencil skirts. Also skirts that finish just above the knee will work well. Mini skirts are not a good idea as they reveal a lot of leg. Often people with wide legs have a shorter torso so if we raise the waist to much it makes you body a bit un-proportioned. This black top creates a contrast with the bottom but you shouldn't become obsessed with dark colors at the bottom. Just wear the colors that work for you. These ruffles and the v-neck draw attention and make your bust look bigger. As far as the length of tops, it is best it finishes right at the waist or just above the thighs. On top, this linen jacket which has details like these shirring at the shoulders. Another trick is to wear jackets with large lapels like this as the draw the eye up the torso. The jacket should finished just below your waist. I don't normally think sandals suit me. I got these in H&M and I think they look really weird on me, what do you think?
Here is an example of a more formal look using pants. Skinny pants won't work well. There are three cuts that will work well. Straight cut like these. Wide leg cut and boot cut. It's best that the pants start right at the waist. It's also best to chose pants that are plain and simple. Here's a test: Why do you think I am wearing this top? Very good! Because these shirring adds volume to the upper body, offsetting your lower body. Finally, this jacket with bulges at the shoulders again. It is very structured with these lines which add structure to your upper body. Also one of those jackets, which have rounded corners work very well too. I will wear this fantastic necklace which has exactly the same color as the top. You can go for shoes with a small heel like this as it will lengthen your figure. But as it's summer you don't need to limit yourself and can always go for some sandals.
Hope these tricks to hide large thighs are useful for you!
