If you do not mind wearing western outfits while maintaining a smart urban look, Indo-Western style would boost on your charm and personality. If you are shy and of the introverted type, you could look better in a sari with boat-necked blouses. And if you are bold and outspoken, you can opt for sleeveless, deep-necked blouses or even with straps.

Small prints and vertical lines give a slimmer look. Avoid cotton saris if you are heavily built. Instead clothe yourself in chiffon and georgette saris. If you are of a medium structure, you should choose beige and faun colors. Netted blouses are idea as they fit well in all colors.

For Tips for All Women
Always wear free flowing fabrics in one tone to help attain a long and slim look. Comp up with your own fashion statements and desist from blindly aping fashion trends. You could invest in a basic wardrobe, bags and shoes. The rest can be mixed and matched. Wear belts if you have an extremely thin waist. Exercise caution when adding accessories as they speak more about you than your clothes. You should always check the wash care instructions before picking cloths lest you buy something whose maintenance is higher than its cost. Importantly, wear only your size and ensure your jeweler blends in with your attire.

Do not wear short skirts. Tall women should wear tops over skirts to limit weight around the waistline. Long skirts make you look taller so avoid them. Buy clothes to suit your shape and check proportions of clothes before putting them on. You can alternate scarves, jackets and belts as you re-arrange the clothes to get the desired look. Wear clothes that fit since too large clothes do exaggerate your figure, something you may not want.

You shouldn’t wear high collared clothes. Wear long necklaces and deep necks to lengthen your neck.

Women with this body type should not wear tapered skirts. You should wear tops with little soft shoulder pads. Wearing light-colored tops and dark colors on the lower body gives you more attention.

Does it match my lifestyle? Can I wear it over a season? Think in terms of outfits as you shop such that you have accessories to go with your new purchase.
