Yes, it hits her right in the middle of her thighs, bringing emphasis to the biggest part of her body, making her thighs and bum look HUGE.
She would look so much slimmer in a longer tunic or a shorter top. Either would flatter her better and make her look super.
I mention this because we all need to be careful about tops' lengths.
There's a new trend (thank you, J. Crew) where you partially tuck a shirt into your pants. (Note: sleeves rolled up are also very trendy...and comfy!)
There are shorter boxy tops that you need to be sure don't hit you in the "wrong" place. But they look so great with a pencil skirt or fitted pants or jeans.
There are tunics that are priceless. It is not unlike wearing a dress with your pants or leggings under. And they're roomy, forgiving and just perfect for almost every social occasion (depending on the fabric).
And, of course, you can layer your tops. You can mix prints, fabrics, colors and create a great style.
If you, like me, need to hide some bulges and bumps, be sure to look at your tops with a discerning eye. And take a rear view so you know how you look from behind.
I sometimes get distracted by prints, fabric or embellishments on tops I want to buy. But remember, nothing distracts from a poochy tummy or a saggy large bum, if that is something you worry about. Just dress to cover what you don't like and go out and have fun!
Until next week, I remain,
