Best Looks

Balance a wider middle by elongating your frame and and drawing straight or slightly flared lines from the waist.

Stylist tip

Lower and wider necklines and details in the shoulders and sleeves are stylish paired with straight or relaxed (no, not baggy) bottoms. Look for shirt hems that hit above or below the waist to avoid creating a horizontal line across the widest part of the body. Creating a column of colour either through a colour blocked style or by wearing the same colour head to toe with a colourful cardi or jacket on top is easy and really flattering.
