By now you will have noticed that mine is a skinny leg with a layered top half.
I know this won't suit everyone and nor should it. It's about maximising your good points whilst minimising those not so great areas. For me my legs have pretty much weathered the birth cycle whereas my tummy area is a constant work in progress. So I show off my levers and disguise my middle area.
However it's all too easy to take this approach a step too far and you can find yourself reaching for a size or two up from what you really are or be attracted to anything shapeless'or too long to hide those less than perfect areas. Remember that tailored and correctly fitting clothes are far more flattering whatever your shape and size than voluminous, floaty numbers that may get pegged down on a camping trip!
Today I'm wearing my Zara stretch trousers which are akin to leggings but have much more weight to them. I've seen too many poor quality leggings that when under taut conditions become no more than a 10 denier tight so beware!
There's still a chill in the air so my H&M denim shirt is layered over my M&S thermal top. The blue of the denim helps break up my predominantly black outfit and I've left a few buttons undone to create a flattering V neckline. My Reiss black leather jacket was another sale purchase from 2 years ago and I've added texture with my extra long zig zag knit scarf. I've actually got no idea what brand it is as I bought it in Hong Kong over ten years ago! My Nine West over the knee boots complete the outfit.
Establishing your everyday uniform helps in those clothes buying decisions and if applied when out shopping will often sort the wardrobe sheep from the goats! (an idiom based on the biblical parable found in Matthew 25 :31-46 for those that don't know) It's those core items that you wear daily or those go to items that make you feel good that you need more of in your wardrobe NOT some fanciful garment you've seen in a magazine or on some modelesque stranger from afar!
If you're still unsure of what your style uniform is I can testify that taking a daily photo for 3 weeks will soon enlighten you!
