Hey my loves!
After much thinking though, I realized that I should have gotten it. I am a strong believer that any style can be worn by any body shape... IF executed in the right way. So if the plus size girl can figure out how to wear a crop top and a two piece bikini without looking crazy, why can't I wear a top with a tie in the front??? So after a little focus, I've figured out some tricks of the trade. Allow me to share:
1. KEEP THE BOTTOM HALF HIGH WAISTED
If you keep your bottoms loose and/or high waisted, you don't even have to worry about your belly showing..you'll only show a sliver of skin if that. Avoid leggings or anything that clings too much. (except maybe a bodycon skirt which moves everything into the right place =])
2. FAKE IT TIL' YOU MAKE IT
Yes, fake it until you make it. If you don't have the flattest stomach or aren't comfortable at the idea of letting skin show, why not pretend? When I say fake it, I don't mean for you to pull out the body shaper or girdle.. unless of course you want to. What I do recommend is to try wearing a neutral or black cami under your tie front top to give off the illusion of still showing skin without showing anything. I do this trick all the time when wearing crop tops and it works like a charm.. looks great too *snaps fingers* haha
Here are some ideas for how to wear your TIE FRONT TOP
