Help! I Have: Fat Legs

Do you feel like your legs are slightly fat? Or do you just not like the thickness of them at all? Don’t fear there are ways you can hide them.

1. Shoes-  Avoid  thin heel styles, and shoes that tie around your ankles because they will contrast greatly with your legs. Make sure your shoes have support and offer good balance. Long boots are great for covering up ankles and calves.

2. Wearing long flowy skirts and pants can hide your shortcomings. Printed flowy skirts with a nice top or tank can give you a cool bohemian look.

3. If your calves and ankles are the main parts of your legs that you’re worried about, avoid wearing capri pants and 3/4 skirts because where they stop accentuates the flaw you want to hide.

4. Flared, wide leg, or plazzo pants are great for people who feel they have fat legs as well as people with short legs. If you want to look taller paring them with heels is best.

Pssst! – Wearing pantyhose and shoes the same color make your legs look slimmer.

Do you hate the fact that you have a short torso? Don’t be discouraged, EMBRACE IT! There are many ways you can the top half of your body look longer creating the illusion of a longer torso.

1. Try to avoid showing your waistline by wearing tops outside of your bottoms.

2. Wearing any type of low-rise pants: regular low-rise, ultra rise, or super ultra low-rise. It gives off the look that your torso ends where your pants begin, elongating it.

3. Wearing a monochromatic color scheme, not differentiating the color between your top and bottom half, make people look at your clothing as a whole and not different pieces.

Help! I Have: Long Legs

Do people always tell you that you have long, great legs? Or OMG I wish I was as tall as you! (like me) Well I have some helpful tips for you gals. Finding clothing for tall people in general isn’t the easiest thing in the world but with some great advice you’ll be just fine.

Leggings are a great bottom for tall people. Pairing them with heels or ballet pumps and a  T-shirt dress give off a modest look.

When it comes to shoes be happy that you are tall because just about any shoe style works great on you. A pair of ballerina pumps (flats) are shoes you just have to have! They give off comfort and make you look shorter. Flats with shorts work best with tall legs. Mid calf boots and shoes with ankle straps tend to reduce the arch making you look shorter as well.

The only store I buy my jeans from is Charlotte Russe. This is the only store I know that caters to women with long legs, any other store I go to, the jeans are always too short, or don’t fit right. With each pair of jeans there are 3 options short, regular, or long. Isn’t that so kind of  them? CR is the best!

Also cigarette trousers are great for long legs. They are high-waisted but narrow and reveal your ankles cutting of the length off your legs.

Help! I Have: Short Legs

For those women out there who are between 5’0″ to 5’7″ and wish they were taller, I have a few tips for you. #1. Embrace your shortness!! There are women out there who wish they were shorter (like me). But  choosing the right clothes that are the perfect can give off the impression that your legs are longer than they seem.

#2. Wearing high-waisted pants that flare, or are wide legged, work best for shorter people because they hide where your waist begins and you bottom ends making your legs look much longer.

#3. Wearing mini skirts work best on short legs as well. Wearing mid-thigh skirts hide a portion of your legs making you look taller. The shorter your skirt the better!

Psst!- If you tuck your tops inside your bottoms it enhances the lengthening of your body.
