Let’s begin at the very beginning, with my shirt buttoned high and my sleeves down to my wrists.  Now for tip #1 that I learned from Karen Hughes of StyleYouniversity: For every place you’re covered up, reveal a little more skin elsewhere.  Hence the more slimming appearance when I unbutton my neckline and roll up my sleeves. Tammy was on the right track when she tried to minimize the surface area of fabric over her breasts.  However, it’s not only the fabric over our breasts that we can minimize.


Now for tip #2 that I learned at my image consulting class: use color and accessories to emphasize or de-emphasize body parts. I have never been a bracelet person, but the way this turquoise resin bracelet diverts the eye from my bust (and complements the necklace and scarf) has made me a convert!
