Women deal with tons of problems everyday and use hacks to hide things we don't want others to see, especially when it comes to our body and the way we view ourselves. When we view ourselves we are too short, too tall, too skinny , or too fat. Then we look at our hair to make sure it lays perfectly in place, we can sometimes spend hours in the bathroom trying to figure out if we have the right shade of lipstick. There are many vain beauty secrets and hacks that go into the presentable women you see around you today. Some men have not one clue of the things we do in the confinement of our closet and bathroom. But I recently watched the daytime television show, "The Real," and the girls gave a peek inside the world of struggles women go through to keep the things under our clothes together, It was their version of their own crazy wacky hacks. One host stated that she used tape to keep her boobs from moving out of place in a formal dress. Placing the tape under her boob and strapping the other end of the tape to her back. Crazy right? Well I am no different even though I don't think my hacks are too crazy I wanted to share with you my love for A line skirts, Why?, because ladies(come closer, read carefully) this is a sure way to hide your belly without needing extra support garments if you don't want them. It doesn't matter what size you are, sometimes it just appears a woman's weight sometimes goes straight to her midsection.
My favorite black high waisted A line skirt, I gave two looks. Here is the thing about this look, an A-line shape is intended to go away from the body, and when you add an high waisted element, it gives you a waist line and gives your body more shape. So I parried my skirt with two different looks. One look is a fun sophisticated look with a play on a combat boot for both looks. The boots make the look young and fresh. I added the black and white stripped blouse to give texture, keep reading to see why. The second look is for my spicy ladies, and if you are like me, you are both, spicy and sophisticated. *side note,* to all my plus size beauties, dressing your body is not boring or hard, just make sure everything fits and know the right places for garments to lay, One of my favorite plus size divas, who just get's it right is GabiFresh, check her out for more inspiration on how to dress your body. But we will talk about that in another post, the point is, have fun be you and push the fashion limits a little if you dare.
About the looks:
Look Number One:
Blouse: Black and white stripped long sleeved blouse- My favorite thing to take the attention off of my belly is using an oversized shirt or blouse and then tying it to shape my body instead of the other way around. This is a great tip if you have lost weight, just can't find your perfect size, or you don't have time to get it tailored.
Tie your blouse at the waist where your skirt meets your waist to add proportion to your body. And ladies please don't be afraid to accessorize, like I did with this hat.
Look Number two:
I love playing with color and stepping outside the norm. I saw this mustard knit sweater in a thrift store one day and immediately my life was fulfilled because it was a beautiful color and someone personally hand knit it. I decided to pair with this crop top from Forever 21 to and dimension and color.
Don't Forget to accessorize Darling, you are so worth it...
