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’m somewhere between pear shaped and petite.
Has your body type changed over the last five years?
My body has grown more susceptible towards changes and the food I consume so I have to maintain a balanced diet along with a persistent work out to stay in shape.
In your opinion what is your most troublesome area?
All the carbs and gluten I consume tend to muster up on my lower half which becomes a concern.
How do you dress according to your body type?
Since I’m 5’5”, I prefer tucking shirts in and wearing high waisted formal pants which elongate my height defining my waistline. I prefer clothes that are neatly trimmed.
How has your style changed over the years?
My style has changed drastically over the years. I’ve tried everything from culottes to peplums to blazers, though I’m very pleased with my formal present-day style.
In your opinion what is the biggest mistake a person can make while dressing up?
Following fashion fads that do not compliment your age or size.
Which silhouettes suit your body the most?
Anything that is well fitted is brilliant.
What is the one piece of clothing that you would never wear?
Sweatpants; I think they’re too causal for my style.
What’s a style every woman should try at least once in her life?
A full on formal attire.
If you could raid anyone’s closet, whose would it be?
What are the items you gravitate towards when shopping?
Definitely long blazers and coats; I absolutely admire the formal look.
What item in your closet do you wear the most?
My onyx-black high waist pants. They go with almost any look, effortlessly.
Denim or ball gowns?
Apparently neither. Formal all the way!
