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


ES: 
* 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!

  9. I agree on the black part. Somehow it slims and it does draw attention away from more troubled zones. Never thought of creating balance by adding to your slighter side. Very interesting.
