Here are some tips to make you look good:
Never go for those loose clothes: That does not mean you go for the tight fitting clothes either. What it means is that you go for clothes that are fitted. For a person who is longer in the torso rather than legs, then you need clothing that can create a waistline. This means picking clothes that have buttons down with seaming at the waist. You should ensure that it fits the chest and shoulder area but fitted around the waist. Pair it with a well fitting skirt, jeans or trousers.
Go for those maxi dresses: When you are wearing a maxi dress make sure you make it has a flattering neckline and comes in nice flowy fabrics. The kind that stays close to your body but does not cling to every bulge unforgivingly.
Wear Pencil skirts: While doing this ensure that the skirt has a pinstripe for creating the illusion of length rather than width. You may even dare to go for brighter colors as long as you pair it with a top that draws the eye upwards. Again you can create a waist line wear a thin belt.
No need to stick to always wear black: We all know that black makes you look thinner, but you do not have to go all black. You can pair your black with nice colors along with cute shoes. This way you will not look like a black blob and break your body up to make it look slimmer.
You can rock in white: You can go for a slim skirt or a nice white dress with a flattering fit. Maybe white pants is not a good idea for most women, so avoid that.
Wear that stripe: The thing about wearing a striped tee shirt is you should combine them with a pair of dark jeans along with a nicely fitting jacket. Ensure that the style of jeans or trouser you are picking is flattering. Combine the outfit with bright sandals with wedged heels.
Wear those skinny jeans: But with a lot of care, make sure that you get all the proportions right, It has to be dark wash and the fit should be excellent. The shirt or top should be a little loose and flowing. Top this outfit with a vest that looks casual. You can also complete the outfit with a long necklace to take the eye away from the top and on to the lower part. You need to wear a pair of high heeled shoes or sandals to complete the look.
Do wear prints: The caution here is the type of print you are going to be wearing. Too small and it would look disproportionate and too large it would make you look loud, especially if you are on the stubbier side. So choose a print that is the right size for you.
Have a style of your own: instead of listening to all those experts, you are better of wearing something that goes with your looks and personality. After all who knows you better than yourself? Your confidence will help pull the look together.
Doing this may require some thought but it is by no means very difficult. In fact we can draw our inspiration from female celebrities who have had the benefit of expert advice. We all know that the hairstyle you choose should bring a balanced look and be easy on the eye. You need to hide the flaws while highlighting the good features.
While an ideal shape for your face is the oval, not all of us are lucky to have this shape. A wider face needs to have a hairstyle that lengthens it while it is the absolute opposite with longer faces; we need to add width.
For example a person with a long face having a center parting dividing the hair equally will only make the face appear longer. Like wise cutting the hair at the back and sides to the same length will also not work. It is better to add bangs with longer face hairstyles. Also avoid chin length cuts that fall straight and flat. Another thing to never do with oblong faces is to add height at the top of the head.
You need not despair as there are many haircuts and styles that can be really flattering to women with long faces:
Go with bangs: Bangs can change the look and more so when they are combed to the side. They cover a large forehead and add the illusion of making the face appear shorter and wider. A bang should be on the side as this parting takes the eye away from the length of the face. A hairstyle with bangs and which is cut to the chin level can also help with cutting down the length of a longish face.
Hair cut to chin level: A wedge cut or a bob that graduates into several lengths can add width and cut down the length of the face. The top layers in this case should be longer so that they do not add to the length. Hair that is outwardly flowing instead of curving inside can also give the illusion of width. Softly waved bob of more length is also another alternative. By making sure that the hair at the back is slightly shorter than the front, the illusion of a wider face can be achieved.
Hair that is longer with waves, layers or curls on the side: Hair that is cut in layers can add body to hair when cut to mid length and this works to broaden the face. Likewise curls and waves also have the same effect. People with long faces should not go for the poker straight long hair as this will only make their face look longer. Go for voluminous curls and waves so that the lines of your face can be softened and distract from the length of the face. You need the lift that this gives without adding the length.
Feathery side hair: The addition of feathery wisps to the hair will work at hiding the length of the face. You can make this work with also addition of waves and/or curls on the side to cut the length and broaden the face.
A little consideration will ensure that your hairstyle flatters the shape and length of your face. Just use online tools available for this purpose to try it out virtually before actually getting it.]]>
