Tips on Trendtation by B* a La Moda.
Here's a video for those of you who's hips are a little wide.
Everybody has their little imperfections. We all have. As a proof look at this bags under their eyes. :) Firstly we have to be confident and happy with who we are and how we look. And then, try to conceal those
little flaws we have been given.
There are different tricks to hide wide hips. Today we are going to concentrate on distracting the attention. If you want the attention drawn away from your hips you need to make other parts of your body more attractive.
The center of this first look will be the head. I will put this classic checked shirt on over this T-shirt and leave it open. Instead of tightening the shirt with these cords I will leave it loose to hide the hip area a bit. The length of this shirt is good as it doesn't fall at the hips. It falls below them. I recommend you avoid items of clothing that fall at the hips as it will bring more attention to them. You can add shoes with a good heel to lengthen your figure so you don't notice the hips so much. Here's a great and cheap accessory to draw attention to the head. This isn't a necklace, its a headband. It attracts attention to the head and away from the hips. When people see you, they'll think about how cool the head band is and won't even notice your hips.
The second look is a bit more classic and is for those of you who think maybe a head band is more suitable for teenagers. It is exactly what I am thinking. :-) I am wearing this grey dress and this purple cardigan. The dark grey goes well with the purple. Here is a shoulder pad from a jacket. Shoulder-pads are a good option for those with wide hips since they help to create an hourglass shape that is very beautiful. They are also IN at the moment. You can either buy tops with shoulder pads or buy shoulder-pads to put inside your tops. Since I don't have any on its own, I am going to take these socks, fold them and put sticky tape on them. Here's the dress without shoulder pads. Here I have only inserted one shoulder-pad so you can see the difference. Here goes the second shoulder-pad. This is another way to redirect attention. As I said, it makes your figure more hourglass. Another way to redirect attention is to wear scarves. This scarf isn't very colourful but it's better to use ones that are. Normally I wear this scarf long with the tassels hanging down. But if you wear a scarf hanging down to the waist it will draw your attention lower down. And we don't want that to happen. :-) Nobody will look at your hips,
they'll look at anything else, like your beautiful arms for example. I can assure you that if you leave the shoulder pads like I did, nobody will look at your hips! ;)
The third piece of advice is to wear a very bright top. I chose this top which is an eye-catching green. It is important to wear dark colours on your lower body to make sure all the attention is on the upper part. I'm really excited!!! I just opened this bag and found my car and house keys that I was missing for at
least a month or two!
I hope you've found this useful. Sometimes I wish I could showcase my advice better but I have a limited closet. I really like it when you request ideas for videos and I will do my best to respond to your questions.
See you next time!!
