As soon as the weather starts turning warmer, women begin to use clothes of different lengths. This is to say that instead of wearing full-length pants or jeans, they mostly use Bermudas, crops and capris during the warmer months. In general, capri pants are not my clear favorites and I am of the firm belief that short as well as ankle-length pants are more modern and fashionable. However, you can get to see a number of women wearing capris wherever you go. So, here is a piece of advice: if you are planning to wear capris, you must at least wear this dress in the right manner.
As the first step, I want to provide some information as to how you can use pants of different lengths by sharing with you the golden rule of fashion. You should always take care not to wear a dress that can hit you at the widest point of your body. This is because dresses that are up to the widest part of your body can make that part of your body to appear wider than normal. To put it in simple terms, you look fatter when you wear such a dress. And, this is exactly what you should avoid.
Now, here is a rundown on the golden rule of fashion for you:
These are pants that have a hem and they end up at the middle of the calf. As you can see, capri pants stop exactly where your lower leg’s widest part is. Further, many capris come with a loose or relaxed fir, making matters worse for you. Actually, such capris make you appear not only frumpier, but also wider.
A better choice would be to use a crop or an ankle pant. Obviously, it ends at the ankle which is a slimmer part of your leg. This would provide a gratifying appearance for just about all the women. If you are into sports or athletics, it is a good idea to use fitted capris that extends up to just below the knee and leaves your calf exposed when you participate in workouts.
Often cap sleeves are recommended by people as an option to wearing sleeveless tops. As the sleeves extend only up to the widest part of your upper arm in the case of cap sleeves, it provides a very unflattering appearance to women who have a little bit of concern about the size of their upper arms. As such, a better option would be to wear a top that has elbow-length sleeves with a hem at the slimmest area of your arm.
Do you think suits give you a boxy look? Well, it may be due to the type of jacket you choose to wear. What you should understand is that if you wear a jacket that is only up to the hips (most women have wider hips), you will be creating a visual horizontal line at your widest part, the hips.
What should you do to avoid the boxy look? You can easily rectify problem. All you need to do is create a waist for your jacket. If the jacket is of the soft type, you just have to add a belt. This way you can divert the attention of people to the waist from the hem. Alternatively, you may opt for a jacket that is designed to end at your waist or extend slightly beyond the widest part of your body which is the hip.
A skirt that falls only up to the middle of the calf is a hot favorite among women, even the mature ones, all over the world. Unfortunately, it only serves to make you appear fatter as the widest part of your lower leg remains exposed beyond the hemline. This gives your legs a stumpy appearance. You can easily overcome this problem by using a skirt that stops either at the knee level or one that extends slightly beyond the knee.
A short shorts that is up to the middle of your thigh, unless your thighs are slim, can make you look fat for the same reason explained earlier in this article. So, what should you do? How can you avoid the frumpier appearance? The answer to these questions is: use a short that is a bit longer. The hem of the shorts should be at a slimmest part of your thigh.
Your hair can make you appear fatter, depending on its length. If your goal is to conceal your neck wrinkles or double chin, then it is important to maintain the length of your hair in such a way that it stays either above or below the problem area.
