Monochromatic OOTD Plus A Massive Transformation!

Hello lovelies! I wanted to share a little something with you about this sleeveless coat, well honestly it wasn’t sleeveless.

A couple of months ago I ordered this black long sleeve coat along side with two other pieces, and to be honest I didn’t really like it because the sleeves were to short and the shoulders were puffy, I kept it hanging in my closet hoping one day it will be useful.

Last week I thought I’d give my wardrobe a makeover and get rid of the things I wont be wearing and on the other hand add some more key pieces. I noticed that I don’t have a black sleeveless coat and that a lot of my tops would look really good with one; so I added that to my “Wardrobe Makeover List” and kept in mind that I should get one ASAP, while still going through my wardrobe I found the black coat and a few thoughts came to me about making it useful and transforming it to a sleeveless coat.

I took a pair of scissors, thread and a needle and began cutting the sleeves off, I threaded the edges and added a little touch to the shoulders, and this was the result!

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.

Best Selection of Bottoms for a Straight Body Shape:

  • Wide leg pants.
  • Embellished pockets.
  • 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.
