I just wanted to share this cute hat! Photo by toolaidback
I'm writing this article because I know I can't be the only one who wishes they had wider hips, not smaller hips. Many Asians have this issue: our narrow hips make us have a very boyish figure. I know I don't want to look like a boy! I want womanly curves. You'll probably find many more apple-shaped Asians than pear-shaped Asians, and I definitely fit into the apple shaped category when I gain weight. Plus, I have wide shoulders and I think that wider hips balance out my body, bringing me closer to the coveted ideal of having an hourglass figure. Wider hips also create the illusion of a smaller waist. These are the styles that I wear to give me the appearance of wider hips, or rather a wider pelvic area. 1. Anything that has a wide panel of color or horizontal stripes right in the pelvic area: I bought these two pants at Target a couple of months ago. They're made by Mossimo. I love how the horizontal stripes fall right where I want to create the illusion of wider hips. I bought them in a peachy/pink shade and a navy blue shade. The important thing is that the stripes or color panel should not sit on your waist, but below your waist, in your pelvic region.
I have to give some props for those ladies with little waists. It's no easy feat maintaining a tiny waist, at least after a certain age. These looks are my favorite to showcase a tiny waist. Celebrate and flaunt your hard work! You deserve it! 1. Baby T-shirt with cap sleeves in white paired with low rise jeans This look is so simple. So American. And it's oh so sexy and casual/laid back. This one's from Victoria's Secret:
Forget showing cleavage. It's can so easily turn from classy to trashy. And it's such a cliche way of showing off the female form. Too expected. If you want to add an element of subtle seductiveness to your look, a bare back, or semi-bare back will do the trick. These are some of my favorite back showcasing styles.
Sad to say, I was not blessed with this trait; instead, mine is like a really sad cut off tree trunk. But I do know a good neck when I see one. The neck is quite overlooked in our society. It is given more attention in eastern cultures. It's not nearly given enough attention as say legs, chests and buttocks, but long, graceful necks are beautiful! They make women look ladylike, poised and confident. I'm all about accentuating what goods you've got, and not focusing on what you don't like. So if you were blessed with this trait, flaunt it! If I had a long neck, this is what I'd do:
Finally, a subject I know through personal experience! I like my pert derriere. Thank you J. Lo for bringing the booty back in vogue! Celebrate and showcase your round tush in these styles. 1. The pencil skirt with back details Remember that scene in Some Like It Hot when Marilyn Monroe goes to the train station? She's infamous for wearing those pencil skirts showing off her behind. If you haven't seen it before, here's a clip. The part I'm talking about starts at 5:00.
Celebrities who have found their perfect jeans: (lucky them!) Kate Hudson Jessica Alba, Nichole Richie, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson (again), Uma Thurman, Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Aniston, Sienna Miller Unfortunately, I…
Most women have some sort of issue with this part of their body. Especially if you're pear-shaped, you know exactly what I'm talking about. For those lucky few with slim thighs, these are my favorite looks that showcase them!
