Etiquette Boss: Dress for success – ladies
This week, our ladies are in the spotlight, especially since coats will soon disappear and our clothing will be once more the focus of public attention.
From my viewpoint, successful dressing is any form of dress that makes a woman feel her best self. First, you need to know your body proportions, because two women can be the same height, and one appear to be taller than the other based on how your body is shaped.
If you have a short torso and long legs, you will appear taller than the woman who has the opposite proportion, because long legs take the eye on a vertical sweep. The pear-shaped woman who has a small waist and wide hips can appear shorter because the eye goes from side to side instead of up to down.
Such a person needs to avoid any form of clothing that causes the eye to focus below the waist. Wear beautiful necklaces, wide neck shirts, etc., to draw the eye upward.
