Diva tricks of the trade…part 3

Welcome back to the Diva Dressing blog and many thanks to all my readers and for all your feedback.

This time I’m back to provide the final installment of the ‘Diva’s Tricks of the Trade’ series.

Before you get started, dig out your piece of paper with your body shape on it…or read the previous blog posts on ‘Diva’s Tricks of the Trade’.

Short Legs and Long Torso

Choose:

Attention at or above the waist

Belts (if your waist is trim) as you have room on your top area

Interesting buttons on jackets, keeping the trouser simple

Short jackets, Bolero to hip length

Shorter skirts just above knee to mini, depending on age and muscle tone

Hosiery to tone with skirt and shoes

Higher shoes

Hem to the ground when wearing trousers with high heels

Dresses over trousers cover up where the legs begin, but only with high heels

Palazzo pants

Wide flares with heels

Probably have long back, so layer t-shirts

Three-quarter length jacket worn with trousers and heels

Long skirts have to have heels

Calf length skirt with high boots in the same colour

Keep colour flowing – same on shoe, sock and trouser

Things to avoid:

Light or patterned hosiery

Long Jackets, especially if teamed with long skirt

Flat shoes

Cropped trousers will only accentuate your lack of leg

Second dropped waistband

Drainpipe jeans unless tucking in to jeans and keep boots well below knee

High-waisted trousers – accentuate a low-slung bum

Bias cut skirt ending mid calf

Long skirt and flat shoes

Now if you have Long legs and a Short body – aren’t you lucky, but here are few guide lines for you – but believe you me you have it so much easier

Long Legs and Short Torso

Choose:

Long skirts

Skirts on the bias

Kick pleats

Knife pleats

Long sarongs

Detailed hemlines

Longer jackets

Unstructured jackets ending mid-thigh/knee (if hips not too broad)

Drop-waisted dresses

Low slung hip belts

Things to avoid:

Short skirts too far from the knee

High heeled shoes

Deep belts

Fuss at the waistline

There you have the final installment…

Start (and keep) using my ‘Diva tricks of the trade’ and I’ll be back soon with more advice to share.

Bye for now
