The waist is the narrowest part of a woman’s body. It almost exactly divides our body into an upper and lower half. Lucky for us, achieving the perfect hourglass figure can be as easy as making the focal point of an outfit our waistline.
Options are certainly not limited to draw attention to the waist. This Fashionista opted for a thick belt with a large buckle. Her belt works well because it breaks up the busy pattern of her dress and draws attention to her waist. Belts can easily be worn over a sundress like this Fashionista did, and just as effortlessly over a tank and cardigan combination or a blousy tunic. These accessories come in just about any color, width or pattern you can imagine, so don’t be afraid to play around and add your own punch of personality to any outfit.
Making your waist your outfit’s emphasis can also be achieved with any high-waisted option. On high-waisted shorts, skirts or pants, the waistline usually hits just above the belly button. Pair any of these bottoms with a crop top, only letting a couple inches of skin show in between both garments to give yourself a very figure-flattering look with an element of flirtiness (that doesn’t reveal too much!). This option does exactly what a belt does, but using your upper abdomen as the focus.
Despite the infinite varieties of shapes and sizes that we come in, universally, the waist is where we want the attention going. However you decide to draw the focus, the perfect hourglass figure is just an outfit away.
