5 Tips On How To Dress Your Trouble Zone

how to dress trouble zones

As a personal stylist, I believe that all bodies are beautiful and have great features that are worth highlighting, but I also know, that there are some others that we don't like to show off that much. That is why I thought about doing this post, here I'll share with you 5 general tips to keep the eyes away from that trouble zone that makes you feel uncomfortable. 

ES: Como estilista personal, creo que todos los cuerpos son bellos y tienen cualidades que vale la pena destacar, pero también sé que hay partes que no queremos exponer tanto. Por eso decidí hacer este post, aquí les comparto 5 tips generales para alejar las miradas de esa zona conflictiva que nos hace sentir incómodas.

* Avoid wearing bright colours and patterns in that area.
* Draw the attention to the opposite side of your body with garments, colours or accessories. For example: if you think your hips are a little wide, you must focus on your chest, and vice-versa.
* Avoid wearing pieces that highlight that part of your body. Let's say you want your chest to look smaller, long necklaces and horizontal stripes aren't a good option. 
* Compensate. If your upper body is bigger than your lower body, add volume to the latter to compensate it. 
* Give volume to your trouble zone, if needed, by choosing pieces with details such as ruffles, feathers, patterns and horizontal stripes.

EXTRA TIP: Black is always a good option to distract the eye

Hope these were helpful, and remember: no matter your body type you all have something to emphasise, focus on it

* Evita los colores llamativos y estampados en esa zona. 
* Lleva la atención al extremo opuesto del cuerpo con prendas, colores y/o accesorios. Por ejemplo, si deseas disimular las caderas, debes centrarte en tu pecho, y viceversa.
* Evita usar prendas que acentúen esa parte. Supongamos que quieres que tu busto luzca más pequeño, los collares largos y las rayas horizontales no son una buena idea.
* Compensa. Si la parte superior de tu cuerpo es más grande que la parte inferior, agrega volumen a este último para compensarlo.
* Si es necesario o desean añadir volumen elijan prendas con detalles como volados, plumas, estampados o líneas horizontales. 

EXTRA TIP: El negro es siempre una buena opción para desviar las miradas. 

Espero que les hayan sido útiles, Y recuerden, no importa qué tipo de cuerpo tengan, todas tienen algo que destacar ¡enfóquense en ello!
