The Gina Fashion Spy… SEVEN WAYS TO A WAIST
This season (and next) is all about the waistline. So we show you the middle way with a series of ingenious Figure- Fixers!
The Cropped Jacket
An abbreviated jacket needn’t fall short on style. Exceed expectations with a cropped jacket partnered with a midi skirt, tucked in shirt and a wide leather belt – a winning formula that is greater than the sum of its parts!!
True Blue – seek out immaculately cut raw denim, but keep it high rise. A waistband that sits above the hips is the nippy shape to strive for now. The news in denim is non stretch, anti-fit with the cuffs rolled up.
Play with Proportion
A billowing dress with kimono sleeves accentuates the waist. Clinch with a decorated belt to draw in eyes.
The OBI Belt – Sash style
Turn boxy jackets and cardigans ultra feminine via a wraparound obi (sash) belt. Black on white makes a waist even waspier.
High- Waisted A-Line Skirt
All hail the high-waist midi. Finish off with a wide waistband belt and all eyes can only turn to the middle….
Eye Trickery with Color Blocking
Gravitate towards dresses that outline hips with a darker color. Your waist will immediately be highlighted in fabulous form.
An A-line skirt layered atop tailored trousers may seem bulky, but pull up to your slightest point. Keep skirt and trousers tonal for the ultimate in streamlined dressing.
