Do you have an hourglass figure and are wondering how to tone down the curves of your hip? Structured jackets are the best solution. Neha K Kulkarni suggests how to structure your look with styles specially tailored for you.
Team up the stylish trench coats
Hour glass bodied ladies have an enviable, natural slim waist which must be highlighted while dressing up. Therefore, team your coat with a bright coloured or broad belt with embellishments. “Emphasising on the belt shifts the attention to the waist. It not just enhances the look of your outfit but also tones down the curve of your hips because of the flow of the coat,” adds designer Nafisa Poonawala Hashim. Trench coats can either be casual or semi-formal; therefore, one has numerous options to accessorise them.
Court the fitted coats
A little bit of structure works best for people with hourglass figure and tailored coats that are fitted at the waist can do wonders. Fitted jackets are normally long and go right till the hips. Thus, it takes care of toning down your voluptuous curves making them less obvious. Women heavy on the bust-line can opt for a V-neck jacket and use a stole to complete the look.
Walk the line in striped jackets
A fitted jacket with vertical stripes gives a slim look. Opt for thin stripes as they tend to tone down the curves. Going for dark coloured stripes will give you a slimming effect. You can also accessorise with a silk scarf or a fancy stole, keeping in mind to opt for solid coloured ones only.
