How to Create an Hourglass Figure and Why


I firmly believe that the hourglass silhouette is the most flattering way of dressing most body shapes. It accentuates our best assets while also hiding our flaws and is generally very feminine. Even though it includes a cinched waist, the sense of freedom it gives you is surprising, just think about it: there is no need to suck in your stomach, because it is hidden under a voluminous skirt (and so are your thighs), and your waist looks the thinnest it can possibly look without a corset. What's not to love?


I really like wearing this silhouette, mostly because I have what I would describe as a sporty figure with little to no curves, but as I said, it would look great on curvier girls as well. For today's look I chose a two layered high waisted peasant skirt, a not too loose fitting simple tank top (tucked in) and a wide leather and elastic belt to hold everything together at the waist. This look is also featuring one of my favorite summer color combinations: mint and white. Let me know what you think of it!


IT
Credo fermamente che la silhouette a clessidra sia quella più bella e più adatta alla maggior parte delle donne. Le gonne ampie e gli abiti stretti in vita accentuano le nostre caratteristiche migliori nascondendo i nostri difetti e sono molto femminili. Anche se si parla di una silhouette stretta in vita, è un modo di vestirsi che trovo molto comodo: non c'è bisogno di ritirare la pancia, perchè tanto è nascosta sotto una gonna voluminosa (come per il resto anche le cosce) e la vita appare più stretta. Non è perfetto?

A me piace molto indossare questa silhouette, anche perchè ho un fisico (ex) sportivo con poche curve, ma questo tipo di abbigliamento sta bene anche alle ragazze con un fisico più femminile. Per il look di oggi ho scelto una gonna "alla contadinella" a due strati con vita alta, una semplice canottiera non troppo aderente e una larga cintura in pelle con retro elastico. La combinazione di colori che ho scelto per questo look è una delle mie preferite per l'estate: bianco e menta. Che ne pensate?

  3. This IS a very figure-flattering look, dearest Anett!! And there's something to be said for that lovely swish of fabric around the legs, don't you think?! Especially during the summer...it's like you create your own breeze wherever you go!! :)

  12. Ottimi consigli, anche se tu hai già un punto vita molto segnato di tuo :) Comunque le gonne a vita alta sono una manna dal cielo e compensano la moda dei crop top!
