Style anatomy: Manal Waqi

Published: May 7, 2017

The London College of Fashion student and the blogger behind The Amanqi Edit decodes her style. Find out what she is currently coveting and what she tries to avoid!

Understanding your body is the key to looking good and a trait found amongst all impeccably dressed fashionistas. While people shy away from talking about their bodies, these brave souls explain how they work their anatomies to their advantage

How would you describe your body type?

I would describe my body type as slender.

Has your body type changed over the last five years?

Fortunately, over the past five years my body type has barely changed.

How has your style changed over the years?

I think at different times of my life, I’ve had an obsession with various accessories. At one point it was headbands and statement necklaces; currently I’m into basketball caps and beanies. As trends change, I adapt my wardrobe and style with the pieces that I love. Col Montant tops, leather trousers and statement sneakers are my current go-to pieces.

In your opinion what is your most troublesome area?

I can’t think of a particular area, but I feel I could focus on some toning.

How do you dress your body according to your body type?

I always wear clothes that I feel comfortable and confident in, and what I feel suits me.

In your opinion what is the biggest mistake a person can make while dressing here?

I feel excessive amounts of logos look unnecessarily flashy. Also, I strongly believe people should wear pieces that they are comfortable in, rather than blindly following trends.

Which silhouettes suit your body the most?

I like playing with proportions, so my typical go-to outfit is an oversized sweatshirt with skinny jeans, or a high-neck, slim-fit sweater or top with boyfriend jeans.

What is the one piece of clothing that you shy away from wearing and why?

I definitely avoid v-neck tops and sweaters (especially deep v-necks), as well as anything body-con. I feel both these cuts don’t complement my style or my body type.
