In my styling adventures I have dressed many body shapes and no matter who the person is or how gorgeous they are EVERYONE has a body insecurity. And what I have learned is that with the right styling and dressing , every insecurity can be hidden! I have a secret……. good style isn’t just about knowing the latest trends ,it’s part of it , don’t get me wrong but a HUGE part of styling is learning how to create illusions and disguise areas of your body you don’t like and accentuating areas you love!!! TRUST ME! Every single body shape and size can be sexy:) That being said it’s key to know what body type you are and how to dress it.
