Here are some ways you could deal with 6 of the most popular body flaws.

 

Fuller Bust

You draw attention away from your fuller bust by wearing a cropped jacket. The cropped jacket draws attention to the waist and away from the bust. Wearing a sleeveless round neck shirt or turtleneck also diverts attention away from the busty upper body.

Style Tip – Always wear a well fitted bra to support your full bust. If you are not sure of your bust size, ensure you go in for a measurement in a bra store.

 

Wide Hips

When it comes to wide hips, the best way to style your hips is in plain colours. A-line skirt in plain colours would draw the attention away from the wide hips.

Style Tip – Shiny or satin fabrics should be avoided because they would only draw attention to the hips.

 

Big Bottom

Make use of long line blazers and jackets. They hide the big bottom stylishly and allow you get away with figure hugging pieces.

Style Tip – Avoid thongs and G strip undies where possible. Go for hipster briefs with Lycra support to lift your bottom and provide the support it needs.

 

Short/Thick Legs

Stay away from longer skirts, they would only make your short legs look shorter. Instead, go for short skirts to create the illusion of long legs.

Style Tip – If you are not a fan of mini skirts, go for skirts just above the knee. They would do the work too.

Broad Shoulders

You can style you broad shoulders with cardigans, shrugs and fitted tops. Go for scoop and v-neck pieces. Avoid wearing structured jackets and suits; they would emphasise the broads shoulders.

Style Tip – Say no to shoulder pads. These things should never have been designed.

 

Flat Bottom

Go for hipster jeans, they create the illusion of a fuller bottom. Also, invest in good shape support knickers to give your bottom some lift and shape.

Style Tip – Go for high waisted jeans with pockets. They make the bottom look rounder and fuller. Low rise jeans make flat bottoms look curvier.

  1. Linen pieces

Linen is perfect for the heatwave so make linen your material for the summer. Pieces made from linen help to keep you cool despite the heat. Go for a pair of linen trousers and pair them with a simple blouse or t-shirt and remain cool throughout the day.

 

  1. Fitting shorts

Who says mums can’t wear shorts? Although the most popular shorts are either ripped or designed, it’s better to go for nice plain coloured fitting shorts. They are comfy and they go well with a fun slogan tee and a pair of sandals.

 

  1. Maxi dresses

Maxi dresses are a must-have this summer. There’s nothing as flattering as a lightweight and flowy maxi dress. It’s not only stylish and very feminine, it’s also perfect when you’re taking care of the kids.  Opt for polka dots, floral print or striped maxi dresses to add some fun and colour. Style the maxi dress with a classic wide-brimmed hat on those very sunny days and simple accessories to add some glam to the ensemble.

 

  1. Versatile t-shirts

Stock your closet with t-shirts that work with almost every bottom whether a pair of jeans, shorts or a flowy skirt. T-shirts usually require little or no thought. As a mum t-shirts make it really easy to put an outfit together especially when you’re busy looking after the kids.

 

  1. Sandals with straps

This summer you want to stay as comfortable as possible under the oppressive heat. Sandals will give you that extra comfort and also keep you cool and free. Sandals can come in different styles, but the most ideal pair for busy moms are the sandals with straps. That will make sure your sandals stay on all day.

 

  1. Statement earrings

Bold and fun earrings are wonderful for the summer. Go for earrings with bright colours and large beads or stones.  A rule of thumb when choosing your earrings is to select a pair that complements the colours of your outfit. So use your outfit to inspire your choice of earring.

 

  1. Lighter washed jeans

Jeans are a staple for every season. They go with almost any top, whether it’s a t-shirt or a blouse. However, make sure you go for lighter washed jeans. They are ideal for the hot weather. Avoid dark coloured jeans this summer as they attract more heat.

  1. Layer necklaces

Who says you should only wear one necklace on your outfits? Layering a short necklace over a longer one helps to give balance to your outfit. It looks elegant and keeps the vibe happy and fun. Perfect for the summer!

 

  1. Shopper tote

Although there are a lot of handbags, nothing adds to the summer vibe like the shopper tote bag. As a mum you have to have a bag that is able to fit toys for the kids, sunscreen and maybe some snacks for the kids. A shopper tote bag is able to keep all those things and more, plus it’s fashionable. Just the perfect bag for every mum.

 

  1. Tortoiseshell sunglasses

Tortoiseshell sunglasses are a classic and work well for mums. They not only shield your eyes from the rays of the sun, they are quite fashionable too. Irrespective of the shape of your face, tortoiseshell sunglasses suit every face. That makes them easy to just pick on your way out.

How to Dress for a Game of Golf

Golf is a sophisticated game that has many etiquettes players need to follow, from politeness and self-discipline to repairing pitch marks and replacing divots. Every golf club has its own set of rules but one rule that does not change is golf clothing. There are many spoken and unspoken dress code rules for golf, which can be vague or even confusing for beginners. To help you, here are some tips on how to dress for golf games

Tops

Most golfers prefer wearing the infamous polo-style shirts. They are your safest option and they are comfortable as well. You can either wear any polo or button-down you have or you can get a golf shirt. Golf shirts come a little longer than regular ones, which help them stay tucked in when you are swinging your club. Speaking of which, the top you are wearing HAS to be tucked in whichever bottom you have on. Additionally, do not get a shirt that is tight around your body as it can be a bit restrictive, get one that is of a loose fitting. One final thing concerning tops: never wear a t-shirt or a tank top to a golf court. It is considered inappropriate by most golf courses.

Pants and shorts

Pants and shorts are both acceptable for golf courses. They can be plaid, linen, cotton, khakis, capris or chino. Everything is acceptable as long as you avoid jeans, gym wear and cut-offs. In the cold weather, slacks are most golfers’ favorite option, especially if they are water resistant in case of any rain. Plus, whether you are wearing pants or shorts, do not forget to wear a belt or else you will be uncomfortable and lose concentration while playing.

 

Skirts and dresses

All of the aforementioned and the following tips apply to both men and women. In addition to them, there are some rules concerning dresses and skirts. Most clubs ask women to wear skirts or dress that are below their knees or maybe a little shorter. If you have a short tennis skirt, you can wear it with tights underneath it. Skorts and culottes are popular options among most female golf players because they are comfortable and practical. The length rule applies to dresses as well. Sport dresses are always acceptable but the safest option are polo dresses. Avoid sundresses and you are good to go.

 

Shoes and socks

Golf shoes are the best option for footwear because they are designed to be stable and comfortable. Some clubs require the shoes to have soft rubber spikes instead of metal ones underneath to protect the green. Sandals, boots and tennis shoes are not acceptable. Most courses accept sneakers and running shoes but they might not be the best choice, as they do not offer stability. When it comes to socks, the most common choices are low socks that are barely visible when you are wearing short bottoms. With long sacks and pants on the other hand, wear crew socks with neutral colors or you can match them with the color of your pants.

Additional tips

  • Contact the club you are playing at to check if they have specific rules for golf attires and colors
  • Take a golf hat with you. It will keep the sun out of your eyes and let you concentrate on your game
  • NEVER WEAR JEANS! EVER!
  • Do not mix patterns. Wear one patterned item while the others are of solid colours
  • Stay away from wearing the color green and all of its shade or else you will blend in with your surrounding green fields
  • Also, stay away from loud flashy colors. Your game has to steal the show, not your clothes
  • Avoid wearing heavy watches or jewelry. They might hinder your game
  • Check the weather before your games and dress accordingly. Wear waterproof clothing for rainy days and clothes made of quick-dry fabrics when it is hot and humid.

 

Final notes

There are a couple of things other that the appropriate style to look for when shopping for a golf attire, such as breathability, weather protection, comfort and functionality. Golf clothing by TheGolfSociety, Galvin Green, Callaway among others offer these qualities combined with fashionable styles.
