shopping tips
Shopping tip 101 Shopping tip One of the best ways to stay focused while shopping is to take a picture with you out of one of your favorite magazines. If you take an image with you, not only will it help you and a sales staff to pull together the look you want, but it will also help you stay focused on what you came to the store for in the first place as well as save money.
Source your magazines-meaning pull out the information that inspires you, put it in a binder and recycle the rest. I started doing this when I was in college and it has been a lot of fun. It also saves time and space.

I love womens shoes. I have no idea why I love them as much as I do. It is a true obsession.

All the girls in my family seemed to be afflicted with it, thought some have it more then others.

I thought for the longest it was some weird little oddity that only my family had.

Summer Fashion Tips for

Top Heavy (apple shape) Body Types

The goal is to minimize your top half and accentuate your bottom half to create symmetry. For tops choose simple and plain, look for v-necks or scoop neck lines. This will be easy if you looking for looser fit blouses and shirts. For shirts keep in mind they can be a godsend if they’re sparse but awful if they have a lot of detail on them. Look for ones with no pockets over the breasts and stay with simple collars.

Summer Clothes Tip #1

Choose either small and subtle prints or solid colors. Just remember nothing tight on the top unless of course you want to accentuate your bust line. A shirt or blouse should close without pulling. Women with little or no derrières can use pants that have pleats in the front panels. Just remember that pleats accentuate your tummy. If you have a small bottom but a bit of a tummy, either choose pants that only come up a little under your belly button or go with flat panel pants.

Summer Clothes Tip #2

Pants that are a tad loose particularly in the summer look casual chic and are a lot more comfortable. Pants that have pockets or any interesting embellishment on them can help create overall balance because your eyes are drawn to details.

One more note on pants for top-heavy body types, don’t wear tapered pants because they will make you look more top heavy. Think of a vase that is small at the bottom and gets larger towards the top. Although it may be visually interesting on a vase it usually isn’t the illusion most women want for the bodies.

Summer Clothes Tip #3

Skirts that are the most flattering are those that have a flare to them. Of course the amount of flare depends upon your personal taste as well as how much you want to create symmetry. Even a small flare can really give the illusion of balance. Shirtdresses, shifts and wrap dresses are probably the no brainer dress choices for the top-heavy body types.

Summer Clothes Tip #4

Halter dresses are good options too, just keep in mind that they can really accentuate your bust size if you're not carful about the size of the print and the depth of the neckline. I suggest you look for a halter dress where the back comes to the middle of your shoulder blades. This kind dress will give you more support.

Any top style with an interesting neckline will work; form fitting or loose in bold patterns or not, whatever your thing is. Simply choose tops that look like an hourglass (larger at the top and bottom with a smaller waistline). These tops will naturally accommodate your derrière without a lot of fuss.

Shirts and blouses are great because they have the ability for lots of detail i.e. interesting collars, pockets over the breast and an interesting placket designs to bring the eye up towards your face and away for your backside. Bottom heavy body types can get away with bolder patterned tops in bolder colors.

One last note on tops: finding slim styled tunics or shorter dresses paired with comfortable pants make for an interesting and body-flattering look. Eileen fisher comes to mind when I think of this style. Dresses for bottom heavy body types are empire waist, wrap dress, trapeze and bustier style dresses with fuller skirts.
