Camouflage your areas
There are many ways to hide your problem areas. If you are not comfortable with your bulges, then just layer them up by wearing over coats. You can try over-sized shirts and pants to cover your belly. Those who don’t like their neck area can switch to turtle necks.
Focus on Clavicle and Legs
Since you’re wiser and older now, keep all those v-necks at bay and opt for an off-shoulder top or a boat neck. A knee length skirt would bring all the attention to your legs. It will also give you a sexy and a sophisticated look.
Be it bracelets, bags, jewellery or scarves, just stock them up. Mix and match the accessories with your outfits. When it comes to bags, always buy those that you would never regret to carry around any number of times. Not many would like to wear jewellery, but this can definitely make a difference to your outfit. Just remember not to over do it.
Find a Good Tailor
There will be times when you won’t be able to find your right size and you wouldn’t wanna let go of that nice pant or shirt. This is where a tailor comes into the picture. Find a really good tailor who would understand your problem areas.
