Style Proportion Formula

skinny jeans outfit

The most important rule of dressing is balance. No one looks good swallowed by fabric or vice gripped by a body con dress barely breathable. So proportion formula is a simple rule of opposites.

If you’re wearing a flowing blouse, skip the boyfriend jeans and pair it with a fitted above the knee skirt. Alternately, if your in the mood for a pair of sexy skinny jeans create a cute and classic look by combining it with a more voluminous top or a show stopping blazer. If you’re wearing a short skirt pair it with a lower heel, showing a lot of leg is sexy enough. Short skirts and stilettos worn together make you look like you trying too hard. Sex appeal should appear effortless even if you spent three hours getting ready.  Remember, clothing sends a message, make sure your outfit reflects how you want to be perceived.

Think about the part of the body you are feeling the best about on a given day and play it up when creating your ensemble. No matter how your proportioned, apple, hourglass, athletic, or curvy it’s all about balance.
