May 28, 2010, Newsletter Issue #113: Balancing Your Hips with Shoulder Detail

Tip of the Week

You may like to minimize the size of your hips by using detail at the shoulders to balance.


Puffed sleeves on tops

Gathered/ruched sleeves on tops

Fluted/flared sleeves that end just below your bust

Shoulder details - from epaulets to sequined shoulders, these details rock on your body.

Wide necklines also flatter as they draw a line out and up.  Try boat necks, sweetheart necks, large cowls and wide v-necks.

Avoid tops that have narrow v-necks, dolman sleeves, raglan sleeves and heavily gathered necklines, which can all reduce the width of your shoulders.
