Body Shape Styling - Hourglass
Celebrities with hourglass shapes include Jessica Simpson, Marilyn Monroe, Salma Hayek, Mariah Carey and Beyonce Knowles.
threadsandstyle.com.au’s number one style rule is to emphasise your assets. Hourglass shapes should emphasise those girls, opt for slightly plunging or v-shape necklines. You should also avoid being colour top-heavy as this can emphasise the bust. Instead, lengthen your gorgeous hourglass figure with light colours on top and dark colours on the bottom.
The first rule in styling is to start with your undergarments. You must have a well fitting bra. Your bra should be professionally fitted and you will find your size will vary from a regular fit to strapless.
You should also have a range of underpants for all occasions. Underpant staples should include boy leg and standard knickers in a range of basic colours. The most gorgeous clothes can look terrible if your undergarments are not well fitted.

May is that time of year when we must face the fact that summer has left us and it’s time to start layering up. And even though we’re sad that the temperature has dropped, it’s also nice to start getting cozy with some yummy scarves, cardis and flats and boots. Autumn doesn’t have to be a massive drag if you treat yourself to some key pieces to mix and match to create different looks.
A new season and a new pair of sunnies. Loving the pinstripe in these Raen The Myopia Sunglasses.
A new pair of statement black pants are a must, we like these Stand And Delivery Pants from Pilgrim Clothing.
Autumn is the perfect time for a smoky eye, and this Black Pearl Eye Palette from Bobbi Brown has all the colours you’ll need to make your eyes pop.
