Tip Thursday: How to make your waist stand out

how to make your waist smaller, stand out, high waisted skirtI have been thinking and I decided to start a new series for my blog: Tip Thursday. Every Thursday I plan to talk about something that can offer you guidance or ideas about how we dress. So no matter how much or less you know about fashion, these tips can help you get more inspirational ideas when choosing what you wear. The first thing I want to talk about is how to make our waist stand out. I am one of those girls who don’t have a small, beautiful waist. However, I am a lover of the hourglass shape, I feel it looks extremely feminine. That’s why I try to dress in a way that gives me the illusion that I have a waist. So here are the things I tried and I know that work. If you have other ideas, please share them with us!

M-am gandit recent la o idee: in fiecare joi sa vorbesc despre moda, despre stil, despre haine in general. Joia sa fie un articol in care sa vorbim despre ce e mai avantajos sa purtam in functie de corpul nostru, ce e mai comod, de unde e mai bine sa facem cumparaturi si orice alte lucruri care ne pot fi de folos. Pentru saptamana asta am vrut sa vorbesc despre idei de a ne pune talia in evidenta. E o problema cu care ma confrunt mereu, pentru ca nu prea am! O talie mica ne face mai feminine, mai suple, mai senzuale. Cel putin eu asa cred. Asa ca va arat mai jos ideile pe care eu le-am incercat si zic ca merg de minune. Daca mai aveti alte trucuri, astept ideile voastre! 

 

Belt

A belt can define your waist especially when you wear something that’s a bit large. However, it can look bulky if the outfit is already very colourful, or if the belt is way too wide and instead of making you look smaller, it attracts all the attention to the belly. When you choose to wear a belt, try to put it in the smaller area. We all have our waist a bit lower or upper, so just play with that. And also see how it looks without the belt, maybe you don’t even need it. To illustrate this, I chose some photos from the Balmain Spring/Summer Collection 2014 which I love. All these belts are full of details which really catches your eye. If you want to be more subtle, choose a simple belt, in a neutral colour.

Un truc simplu, insa complicat! ce vreau sa spun cu asta e ca des vad persoane care poarta o curea degeaba. Daca tinuta e deja incarcata, o curea poate sa fie prea mult si in loc sa faca bine, face rau. De aceea va sugerez sa probati cu si fara curea si sa vedeti cum e mai bine. Pentru a prezenta ideea, am ales sa va arat poze din colectia Balmain Primavara Vara 2014. Insa daca va uitati cu atentie, curele sunt pline de detalii. Sunt superbe, insa uneori zic ca e bine sa alegem ceva mai simplu: poate curele mai inguste, sau culori neutre. Cu o curea mai simpla e mai greu sa gresim. Dupa cum spuneam inainte, tinuta per total trebuie sa aiba un echilibru. 

 

Peplum

It’s not news that peplum tops or dresses can give the illusion of a waist. I personally like this, I think it’s great especially for an office look. If you choose to wear a peplum top, I recommend you pare it with tight skirts/trousers. This way it will give you a great silhouette. If you choose to wear a flare skirt for example, you’ll look way bigger because of the peplum detail.

—————-

Cred ca asta e una din clasicele trucuri pe care le folosim sau le vedem. Stiu ca nu mai sunt chiar asa in trend, insa pentru mine tot reprezinta o tinuta clasica si eleganta. Iar daca alegeti un top, va recomand sa il combinati cu o fusta sau un pantalon mulat. Daca alegeti in schimb o fusta larga riscati sa aratati putin mai plinute decat sunteti. 

 

Patterns/Prints

Again, a great outfit for an office look. I often see dresses that use the color block trend to either create the illusion of a waist, or a fuller bust or smaller hips. Dresses like this are easy to find and usually are bodycon, which means they are tight. If you are not comfortable wearing something so tight, I recommend the skater dresses, like the one from Evans (black and blue).

Inca o idee de tinuta office: aceste rochite de tip bodycon, adica mai mulate, care cu ajutorul culorilor bine pozitioante pot sa creeze iluzia de o talie mai mica, un piept mai mare, solduri mai mici/mai mari.  Iar daca nu va simtiti confortabil in rochii mulate, alegeti ceva din material mai gros, sau cele de tipul skater dress ca rochia a patra de la Evans cu negru si albastru. 

 

Fit & Flare

Honestly, this is my favourite trick. I like to wear high waisted skirts or trousers because they focus around my smallest area: my waist. I personally prefer tight tops with flare skirts. But it all depends on the fabric and on the skirts that I wear. It all depends on you, what do you want to highlight? Your great bust and shoulders, or your nice hips? Choose something tight on the part you feel most comfortable in. In this category I also included the mom jeans, a new trend. They are basically high waisted jeans that are a bit loose, not skinny. I like to see them combined with tight crop tops. But I know not everyone feels comfortable wearing crop tops (including me!). That’s why I suggest wearing a turtle neck top instead.

—————-

Ideea e de a purta ceva mulat combinat cu ceva larg. Asta e ‘trucul’ meu preferat.Mi se pare ca da o forma feminina corpului, in stilul vintage. Acum depinde de voi in ce combinatie vreti sa alegeti. Eu personal cel mai des port un top mulat cu fusta larga. Insa am ajuns la concluzia ca tine foarte mult si de material. Va recomand sa probati mai multe combinatii, sa vedeti cum va place mai mult si cum e mai comod. Daca vreti sa scoateti in evidenta partea de sus, alegeti un top mai mulat. Daca vreti sa adaugati volum la bust, alegeti o camasa cu volanase, mai larguta. Depinde de ce vreti sa scoateti in evidenta si de cum va simtiti voi mai bine. La final am adaugat si noul trend: mom jeans. Care se traduce: blugii mamei. Pentru ca arata ca blugii pe care mamele noastre le purtau cand erau de varsta noastra (clasicii Levi’s): un material mai gros, cu talie inalta si nu prea mulati. De obicei cu o curea de piele. Imi plac mult, dar pot sa ne faca sa aratam mai plinute decat suntem. De-aceea recomand sa ii purtati cu un top mai mulat, sau chiar unul mai scurt in talie. 

 

Wrap tops/dresses

I really like these because they are comfortable. Even though you’ll have something wrapped around your waist, it’s better than a belt because it’s softer. They also look really feminine and elegant.  The only thing is that I rarely find these clothes in the shops I often go (aimed at young fashion).

—————

Cel mai mult imi plac hainele de tipul asta pentru ca sunt extrem de comode. Nu mai am rigiditatea unei curele, nu mai ai rochia stramta peste tot. Singurul dezavantaj e ca gasesc greu ceva in stilul asta in magazinele pe care le frecventez. 

 

Which one is your favourite?
