How To Holiday Style for Your Body Type: De-Emphasize a Larger Chest

Pink Slip Fashion understands the dilemma of dressing for the holidays. From staying within budget to mastering the appropriate look for the right venue, styling can easily go haywire at the drop of a slip. On top of everything, there’s choosing a design that will leave an impression and is perfectly suited for your body.

That’s why Pink Slip Fashion wanted to give you daily pointers on dressing for your body type. And for the first day, as requested by a reader, I’m showing you looks that will flatter a bustier shape, especially if you’re uncertain of how to navigate that holiday party without drawing the wrong attention. Check out our top 3 key pointers for the perfect fit: 

1) First things first, remember to choose a dress design with wide straps so as to camouflage a supportive bra. You’ll be able to move comfortably the entire evening and not worry about any wardrobe slips

2) Next, go for styles that have a cinched waist silhouette to show off your oh-so-petite frame. This can be accomplished with a knotted detail, bow, surplice neck, or even just a simple belt.

3) Finally, it’s all about the flare hem. It’s easy to look too top-heavy if your hem is fitted. With a slight flare, you can help to create a proportionate body shape.

With these 3 tips from Pink Slip Fashion, you’ll be undeniably chic, while mastering standout style for your body.

Dressing With Breast Cancer: Flatter Your New Shape!

Catching the tail end of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Pink Slip Fashion wants to show women who have undergone a mastectomy how to dress their body’s post-surgery, returning feelings of confidence, femininity and sexiness with trend-forward styles.

Triumphing against unimaginable difficulties that come from fighting a life threatening illness can oftentimes extinguish self-esteem.  Coping with the fact that your body is irreplaceably different becomes a heartbreaking challenge and emotions become especially heightened after looking in the mirror.

As a person with relatives who have suffered from this distressing and time-consuming illness, I know it’s a trial for breast cancer combatants to find a sense of inner peace, sanctity and comfort.  With this post, I hope to bring some encouragement to these fighters’ indescribably different lives by providing a few styling tips to renew self-esteem and welcome back a restored sense of empowerment.

4 Irreversibly Cool Styles that Will Flatter Your New Shape:

1) Lacy Supportive Bra – Lace will complement your sweet and flirty side, helping you feel feminine.

2) Thick Strap Tank Tops – Thick straps will help camouflage your supportive bra while still giving you noteworthy looks. Try tanks with a subtle pattern, bow detail or metallic trim for even more style presence.

3) Tailored Jacket, Vest, or Cardigan – Every fashion maven needs this in her fall wardrobe. Styles with a belt or cinching will highlight the best of your curves, while showing off your thin waistline.

4) Patterns and Ombre Skirts or Dresses – To deflect away from your chest, try a print skirt or dress with patterned bottom. To play up the sophisticated ombre trend, choose designs with saturated hues closer to the hem.
