The beautiful and elegant Rosie Huntington Whiteley Covers Harper’s Bazaar September 2016, and it is a fab cover. I really like the whole white and grey theme going on here. It kind of reminds me of the autumn/winter season, which I am crazy about.

I got this issue some weeks ago, and I must confess, it was a fab read – I finished it in 1 sitting. I have always been interested in Rosie Huntington Whiteley’s career, right from her Victoria’s Secret days.  At 29 years old, the supermodel is doing very well for herself with her brand collaborations with M&S, Uggs Australia and Paige Denim. Her business acumen and drive is what stands Rosie Huntington Whiteley out from the rest. No wonder she is also one of Britain’s most successful supermodel.

Speaking on her Autograph collaboration with M&S –

‘Since I was young, I’ve always bought vintage night-slips and lace boleros,’ she says. ‘And Marks & Spencer is this iconic British high-street store that everybody in the UK has some form of connection with. My mum took me bra shopping there for the first time as a teenager.’

‘I think everybody is so used to celebrity endorsement that feels inauthentic, but I’ve worked for lingerie brands since I was 17,’ she says. ‘It’s really important when you align yourself with a brand that it’s genuine. You have to look at the bigger picture. It’s not just transactional, it’s not just about taking a job and making money and moving on to the next thing. It’s about: what does this mean for me? Where can this go?’

I am yet to try on a piece from her Autograph collection but I would love to. I have heard so many good things about the collection.

Do you own any of the pieces from the collection? What do you think of this cover?

Sound off in the comment section. Thanks for reading.

How To Dress Up Your Huge Boobs

Sometimes, I see curvy/well endowed women struggle to dress up their amazing figure. Instead of showing off their curves, some tend to hide them in oversize, shapeless clothes. The sad part of it all is that they could start hating their beautiful figure because they don’t know how to work it. I have been there. I didn’t like my hips/bum for a while. I felt it was huge for my frame and always wanted to hide it.

Being busty does not make you look bad but rather attractive. And dressing up your well-endowed figure is not a challenge but an art which you can learn and perfect. We are wonderfully made regardless of our shape. All you need is to learn a couple of style tips and you’ll see what an amazing figure you have. A dose of self confidence also helps. As a former aspiring fashion stylist, and now a fashion blogger, I have a few style tips I have learnt along the way.

Here are tips for the busty woman:

 

Emphasize your waist
Some women try to cover up their large bustline by wearing loose-fitting clothes. The problem with this approach is that it makes your clothes hang over you like a tent making your bust bigger than it really is.
The right way to dress is to emphasize your waist. This will make you accentuate your curves. You can emphasize your waist in many ways. Choose an outfit that has a detailed midsection that defines your waist. Go for tops that fit in the waist like princess-seamed blouses, empire-waist tops or wrap styles. This will create an hourglass shape. If you do wear a loose top, put on a waist belt. That will help show your waist smaller than your bust creating that flattering figure.

This style tip only works if your waist is small in proportion to your bust.

 

Go for a low neckline
If you large boobs, stay away from tops or dresses with high necklines. High necklines make your breasts look lower and bigger than usual. So if you have anything with round necks or turtle necks, take them out of your closet!
Go for V-neck styled tops, dresses, jumpsuits and cardigans. A V-neck helps elongate your body and separates your breasts, making you look amazing. Although V-necks are great, tops with a deep plunge destroy the whole look. Square, sweetheart, and scoop necklines also work well to carry out this effect.
If you don’t have a V-neck top, a buttoned-down blouse works just as well so long as the blouse is tailored to fit below the bustline or at the waistline.

 

Adorn your neck with a long necklace
Long necklaces, which extend to the height of your belly, have an elongating effect as they draw attention away from your bust.
Take note that your necklace does not hang at the height of your nipples as that will put focus on your bust.

For the same reason, also avoid using brooches.

 

Get extra support
Being well-endowed calls for more support of your bosom. Go for a dress or top with a built-in bra or molded cups, or under wire to give your breasts extra support. Doing this gives your breasts plenty of room and prevents your breasts from looking squashed and result in spillovers. The extra support also helps make the waist look smaller in size. When it comes to bras, I like to shop for quality pieces so you will catch snooping around in Victoria’s Secret, M&S or Debenhams. I have shopped for bras in hundreds of stores worldwide, and I find these 3 the best in terms of quality, options and designs.

5 Style Tips for Women

OOTD Cape Dress

Sense of style is a personal thing, and it takes ages to develop a true personal style. Some of us are born with a flair for fashion and style, some of us develop it as we go along, but one thing is for sure, our sense of style evolves as we age. Most of the outfits I thought were stylish 5 years ago, I won’t be caught wearing them today.

Our sense of style projects a message, a message that is received as soon as we step into a room, even before we open our mouth. So it is very important to make sure your appearance is speaking the language you want it to speak, and sending the right message.

Autumn Layering

Here are 5 style tips you could implement today:

 

Pay Attention to your Self-esteem

Before we talk about fashion and style tips, we need to talk about the most important tip of all. Your self-esteem is very crucial to how you see yourself. If you don’t feel good, you won’t believe you look good, no matter how good you look. Working on your confidence is the first step to building your personal style. You have to feel like a million bucks to look like a million bucks, and convince others that you are a million bucks. If you don’t love yourself, no one will.

Pay Attention to your Undergarments

Your underwear sets the foundation for your outfit, so for your outfit to look great, the foundation has to be solid. I know many women neglect their bras and underpants because no one sees them when they are out and about, and they are so wrong. If you are wearing a full pant underneath a bodycon dress for example,  I will see it, just like if you are wearing the wrong bra size, people can tell from the outside. Get rid of the bras that don’t fit and go shopping for new ones. Your style will thank you for it.

Start paying attention to your underwear, they have the power to take your outfit to a whole new level. For bras, I love to shop Victoria’s Secret and Ultimo. I have tried many and I think these brands have the best bras in the market. For pants, I like to shop Debenhams and M&S, they have the best sets of panties, and super affordable, compared to others.

 

Less is More

Less is truly more. When it comes to colours, prints, patterns, makeup and accessories, I like to keep them as simple as possible. I try not to have too many colours on at the same time, I stick to one ‘busy’ print, pattern or accessory. I also try to stick to the makeup rule of emphasizing the eyes or the lips, but never both, and these tips work.

Less is more when it comes to style, but then again, whatever rocks your boat!

 

Invest in Statement Pieces/Accessories

Now this is a tip I need to follow a lot more this year. I need to invest in more statement pieces and accessories, especially jewellery, bags and shoes, because I believe they are good investment, and are classic and timeless. Building a personal style is really not a day’s job, but I wish it was, I would have my entire wardrobe stocked with everything I need.

 

Know your Body Shape

If there is any tip you follow here, make sure it is this, next to the self-esteem tip of course, I think they are the most important. To dress your body shape stylishly, you need to know what your body shape is. I covered female body shapes extensively on this blog some months ago, so you really have no excuse, if you still don’t know your body shape. Catch up if you missed the series.

 

So there you have them, my 5 style tips for women.
