Best Way To Dress a Straight Body Shape

Introducing the Straight Body Shape, the most common one, also referred to as the rectangular body shape. If you have a straight body then your hips and bust are most likely to be balanced and your waist isn’t very defined. I personally find this type of body the easiest to dress (other than the hourglass shape of course).

The best way to dress this type of body is to balance between dressing your upper part, with your bottom part and as usual define your waist.

 

Best Selection of Tops for a Straight Body Shape:

  • Off the shoulder.
  • Wide V or U neck.
  • Belted waist tops.
  • Embellished sleeves.
  • Boat-neck tops.
  • Flowing tops around the bust/shoulder.

  • Medium to low waist pants.
  • Full skirts.

A Guide On How To Dress A Diamond Body Shape

Being a Diamond Body Shape means having a full midsection, which also means you usually gain weight on your hips, thighs, stomach and bum. While on the other hand, your arms and legs are shaped symmetrically.

The key to dressing a Diamond Body Shape is to balance the hips with the bust and shoulders, and create a defined waist.

 

Best Selection of Tops for a Diamond Body Shape:

  • Off the shoulder tops.
  • Belted waist tops.
  • Wide U or V neck.
  • Busy shoulders or sleeves tops.

 

This selection of tops will add more volume to the shoulders and bust, it will help in balancing them with the hips, as well as adding belts to your tops to create a beautifully defined waist.

Diamond Tops

Best Selection of Bottoms for a Diamond Body Shape:

  • Dark colors – which help in minimizing the lower half of your body.
  • Bottoms with simple pockets.
  • Straight skirts or pants.
  • A-Line skirts.

A Guide On How To Dress An Inverted Triangular Body Shape

I hope you guys enjoyed the previous post on How To Dress: Triangular Body Shape because today I’ll be talking about How To Dress: Inverted Triangular Body Shape, which is the exact opposite!

As I said in the previous post, the volume in the triangular body shape is all in the hips, where the inverted triangular has all the volume on the shoulder and bust! Which means we’ll have to balance the body again by adding more volume to the hips, and defining the waist.

Just imagine the top part of the body as an inverted triangular shape, and that we have to transform the bottom part of the body to a triangular shape as well, which leaves us with a perfect balanced hourglass shape!Inverted Triangular

Best Selection of Tops for an Inverted Triangular Body Shape:

  • Tops with dark colors
  • Wrap-style tops
  • Shirts and jackets that are tailored
  • Tops with banding at the waist
  • Narrow v-necks

A Guide On How To Dress A Triangular Body Type

Knowing what body shape you are can help so much in figuring out what types of styles work best for you, to compliment your body type.

Today I’ll be guiding you in how to dress a Triangular Shaped Body (or as some call it The Pear). As a Triangular Body, your hips are larger than your bust and you have a nicely defined waist; so don’t be afraid to show that off!

Starting with the tops, since all the volume is in the hips we need to balance the body to give it the Hourglass Shape. The best way to do that is to add volume to the shoulders and to define the waist. So instead of having large hips you’ll trick the eye to  make it seem like you have a balanced bust and hips with a perfect waist.

Best Selection Of Tops For A Triangular Body Type:

  • Boat-neck tops, wide V or U necks.
  • Off the shoulder tops.
  • Tops with fitted waist.
  • Bright colors and bold patterns.
  • Tops with full or structured shoulders.

Best Selection Of Bottoms For A Triangular Body Type:

  • Darker colors are best to minimize your lower half.
  • A- Line skirts.
  • Simple bottoms with no structured or embellished details.
  • Lightly gathered skirts.

ALRaha Beach Hotel | Abu Dhabi

 

A few months ago me and my husband were visiting our relatives in the UAE and we decided to go to Abu Dhabi for a couple of days. We booked in Al Raha Beach Hotel because it was close to Ferrari World and we also wanted a nice, relaxing place to stay at. The experience was far better from our expectations… We had a blast! The room’s view was to the beach and the outdoor pool and bar area. The room was generiously spacious and really comfortable. The overall service and facilities were great, the restaurants had amazing food, the outdoor pool was perfect. The staff were really assistive, helpful, and generous.

Over all we truly enjoyed our stay and will definitely go there again. It’s perfect for couples (might want to add this to your list of where to go on your upcoming anniversary), families, and friends. And its only 20 minutes away from Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, a must visit in Abu Dhabi!

Here are some of the pictures I took of the hotel. Enjoy! 😉

Clinique Anti-Blemish Solution BB Cream

Hello beauties!

I got this BB Cream around two months ago before my trip to Dubai, I was afraid it might not last because of the hot temperature and the humidity there, but I was amazed by how long lasting it is and the coverage it gives!82343614f0aecf89e63145e85e6572ca.jpg

I have combination/oily skin, so all I had to do was set this with a powder, and it lasts all day.

A lot of products break me out and this one has not, instead I felt that it helped my skin in so many ways.

This Anti Solution BB Cream has a thin texture which gives you the feeling of a light, smooth skin. Considering this is a BB cream and the consistency is watery, it dries very quickly so make sure not to take long to blend it!

Overall I highly recommend it if you don’t have dry skin.

 

PROS

– SPF 40

– Perfect coverage

– Matte finish

– Nice packaging

 

CONS

– Dries super quickly because of its runny consistency

– Strong alcohol smell

– A bit expensive
