How to Holiday Style For Your Body Type: Small on Top, Big on Bottom

Pink Slip Fashion believes that every woman should look her best, especially for the holiday season. With an array of cocktail parties and events on the horizon for this season’s cheerful tidings, Pink Slip Fashion has decided to put together some looks for various body types.

Tonight we’re going to focus on silhouettes that cater to women who are smaller on top and bigger on bottom. With help from the ultimate guide to dressing, “Dress Your Best,” by Clinton Kelly and Stacy London, I’ve culminated the above looks.

Here are the basics to avoid any fashion slips:

1) For average height women, choose a halter style with an a-line skirt. Go for a waist with some sparkle to accentuate the bust line. The a-line hem in lightweight chiffon will help camouflage larger on bottom areas.

2) For petite women, Pink Slip Fashion recommends that women choose a strapless option. It emphasizes broad shoulders and your decollete. Add a brooch at the neckline to draw more attention to your bodice.

3) Lastly, for taller women who are large on bottom, go for a higher neckline with jewels or beaded detailing. Preferably a sleeveless style to once again highlight shoulders and arms. Structured seams at the bodice and an a-line, knee length hem will create a proportionate and flattering silhouette.

Top off each look with a pointed, metallic shoe, which will define a long, lean leg line, and a small textured clutch.

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.
