style note PROPORTIONS


When styling your look it is important to play with proportions and get them right. Your outfit should be balanced to the right proportions. A few tips to keep in mind.....

Balance volume with slim cuts. 
If your wearing a voluminous piece on top you need to add a fitted piece below. If you choose to wear wide pants or a voluminous skirt/shorts pair them with a tailored top slim fitting top or t-shirt.

Pair short with long and long with short.
A longer jacket over short or a similar length. Wear a longer jacket, coat over a shorter hem or similar length below. Wearing a longer length with something longer you can look frumpy.

Create an hourglass look.
Cinching in the waist creates shape to your silhouette. Cinching your waist in is the best way to create curves and flattering for all shapes and sizes.
