Dressing for Your Body Type: Long Torsos
As for shirts, leave them un-tucked. Empire lines, with the waistband just below your chest, are a great way to disguise the length of your torso. A-line garments also draw attention away from your waist. Wide necklines and flowing tops will also distract eyes from your waist. A shorter top paired with a long skirt or pants will balance you out. I’ve mentioned layering before as a modest way to flatter your shape, and I’ll say it again. Layering your tops will break up your upper body. Trés chic!
You can experiment with different looks to find exactly what you like. Wide belts look best on girls with your body type. Pants and skirts with interesting waistbands or adornment look great on you because they make your waist look shorter and your legs appear longer. If you like embroidery, try stitching some pretty details on your clothing.
Your jewelry, hair, and makeup can also make a difference. Draw attention up to your face with a chic new haircut, tastefully-applied makeup and pretty jewelry, like a fantastic necklace or pair of earrings. It will be a whole new you!
The most important way to balance yourself? Keep your eyes on the great things about your body, such as your enviable blonde hair or your sparkling blue eyes, and remember that no matter what you wear, you have a gorgeous God-given figure!
