Hiba Sethi, Director and Youth Etiquette Consultant at The Elixir School, and an avid traveller decodes her style. From how her style has evolved over the years, to her favourite silhouettes, this tiny-framed fashionista shares it all
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?
Fun sized for me, petite for TopShop.
Has your body type changed over the last five years?
Not drastically. I would say it has been more of a lifestyle change.
How has your style changed over the years?
Naturally with age and exposure, a person with the love for fashion and style will constantly find themselves experimenting, sometimes making their peers laugh and sometimes ending up in magazines.
In your opinion, what is your most troublesome area?
I’d like to write ‘love yourself’ but let’s be real and work on dem legs.
How do you dress your body according to your body type?
My style can vary from rock chic one day to something very feminine the next evening, it’s more a matter of my mood than my body type. Yes, the way I feel is very important when I’m getting dressed.
In your opinion what is the biggest mistake a person can make while dressing?
I think it’s all about confidence. Adapt the ‘I’m nicer when I like my outfit’ motto and see yourself never go wrong.
Which silhouettes suit your body the most?
A well fitted top or dress will give my body type the best silhouette. As for my preference, saris are my absolute favourite.
What is the one piece of clothing that you shy away from wearing and why?
After years and years of trying to make them mine, I’ve given up on shorts.
