“Not every piece of clothing has to be flattering.” –Me

June 23rd, 2009 No Comments

@ColleenLamb:

Style blogger @maryrambin: “Not every piece of clothing has to be flattering.” Seriously?! Fit should ALWAYS be #1 when choosing clothing!

My response:

@colleenlamb I’m a huge fan of moo moos too! But a good fit does not = flattering. Something can fit and still look like shit (& rhyme!)

Let me put it to you this way –

When you get dressed up, you usually accentuate one asset (or as I like to call it, your money-maker).  Whether it’s a short skirt to flaunt your legs, a plunging neckline that exposes your cleavage, whatever.  But you’re probably not going to show off both.

SO! The other piece you wear is a little more conservative or loose.  

With harem pants you should choose a flattering top that shows off your figure, boobs, etc.  In the picture below, I reveal the slightest bit of tummy to make this outfit a little more interesting (and because I didn’t have a truly flattering top).

Any other questions, comments, concerns?
