To answer this question I went straight my favourite stylist Leila Bani
, who has worked with the cast of Canada's Next Top Model Cycle One. Here are her suggestions!
Please don't stay away from dresses and skirts, life is too short! (And summer is too hot.) A flirty summer dress with the waistline at your natural waist and a slight A-line hem above the knee can be bigger thighs best friend. Go for the same idea with a skirt. It will look fun, flirty and the fit won't accentuate your problem areas. As for colours, avoid anything that is too similar to your skin tone. If you have olive undertones avoid acidic green and beige-y yellows. And please don't forget to have some fun! Darker skin tones look beautifully striking in most colours -- enjoy!
