We are continuing the signature style series this week, where we identify solutions to the body type challenges you experience as you create personal style. And today, we are looking at the challenges Christmas Trees experience, and I'll give you style tips for resolving them...
5 Style Tips for the Christmas Tree
Christmas Tree is a name I chose for women who experience fullness challenges below the waist. The problem area could be their hips or their rear end, but either way, women often aren't sure how to dress in such a way that those areas are not an immediate focus of attention.
Here are three tips to help you resolve either challenge...
(1) Aim for hems that are just above or a little below the widest part of your body.
(2) Add width above the waist with square necklines, rounder ones, shoulder pads, and/or chunky earrings and other accessories.
(3) If your legs are tapered, don't wear wide-legged pants, but do add width at the bottom, with bootcut jeans or pants.
Column Dressing for the Christmas Tree
Monochromatic outfits will work well on you. But if you try adding a third piece, for column dressing, match the topper and the pants, but choose a contrasting color for your top.
Is this your type?
