1) Colors And Dressing
Know your body type and try not to be too matchy-matchy or too polished. It’s nice to mix things up and be a bit more playful. A 2 piece suit will quickly look old. Better to pair that up with a jacket with another skirt or pants and look effortlessly chic. For Indian women, who wear traditional suits or saree, for suit try to wear suits with long shirt and without a dupatta. Avoiding prints mainly is global. For Sarees, avoid wearing too many prints again and wear sarees with wide borders, mainly in dark colors.
Add accessories that match your outfit and keep your makeup natural and not loudy. Try big accessories and avoid little ones as they shift the focus from face and body a bit. Try to avoid wearing too lose and too tight fitting of the clothes. Keep it somewhere in between. Keep current with the fashion trends and make sure you have a few current items in your wardrobe.
3) Shapewear and Undergarments
If you want to hide some of the bulges, then shapewear definitely helps. If you don’t like shapewear, then learning how to skillfully hide with the right clothes will be preferable. Make sure you wear a good bra and invisible under garments.
Try to avoid footwears that are too open like wedges or sandals. Try to wear bellies, these will hide a part of your feet. These add an instant young and hip vibe to your outfits. In the end, make sure to choose shoes that you are comfortable to walk in.
5) Glasses and Bags
Try to wear trendy sunglasses that suit with your face type whenever you go out in the sun. It’s a style statement! When it comes to handbags one should try a clutch, classic tote, travel bag, etc. Women can carry these bags in their 20, 30, and beyond.
