One of the positive aspects of blogging on a personal level has been discovering my style. I’ve always been the type of girl who wasn’t aware of her proportions. I’m known to think I’m taller and curvier, resulting in many outfits over the past years, not quite me, definitely not! I mean here the cowboy boots and oversized pullovers (half the size of my body!) fashion disasters, occupying space in my extra small wardrobe.
You might wonder in which way has my poor case been helped; well seeing T in countless pictures, I’ve earned an objectified view of myself. This post is not about complexes, a woman close to 30 has had enough of silly thoughts, this is what nature (genetics) gave and I somehow have to make it work. I will make a short pause here and tell you TbyMallano is not about giving advises; I’ve been told to be awfully bad at it, sharing my experience is what I do.
I’ll never wear head to toe black again, it clashes with my natural black hair and makes me look pale and sad. I was shown by my mirror, low waist-tight skirts make my hips look narrower and my torso longer, thank goodness the high-waist A-line skirts are back. I was taught by the lovely Jalisa from TheStyleContour, tights or pants in the same shade as the boots will make your legs seem longer.
Dare I ask what have you learned over the years regarding your style in relation to body type? I live by the motto wear what makes you happy, making an effort to understand what suits you will contribute to your confidence and happiness equally, trust me.
