Monday Style Tip No.33

enhance curves with ruffles

Fashion is like magic, you can create an illusion of something that’s not really there! Wear ruffles or frills around your bust, hips or bum to create a curvier silhouette or balance out your heavier areas.

Monday Style Tip No.32

nude-heels lengthen legs

Nude heels really can give the illusion of longer legs. Personally I feel drab in nude, so I go for a fun texture like these glitter heels or a two tone style to make my nude shoes feel a bit more glam.

Monday Style Tip No.31

cover regrowth or frizz with a cute beret

Cringing over your regrowth or fussing over flyaways? Cover a multitude of sins with an elegant beret a la Lauren Bacall in The Big Sleep. Or forget your hair and go watch The Big Sleep, it’s a classic and Bacall has a killer wardrobe.
