As a woman with curves I am always looking for ways to accentuate them. I purchase this Zara shirt online a few months back and was disappointed by the utter boxiness and lack of shape it gave when on. I have worn it a few times tucked into high waisted pants or skirts, but on this particular day, wearing a skirt that was just slightly too fitted to tuck anything in to, I found an alternative by creating a slight peplum using a simple skinny belt.
As you can see from these pictures, without a synching belt the shirt completely eliminates my curves. I look boxy on top and much heavier than I am. By adding a contrasting skinny belt at the smallest part of my waist I emphasize my curves and draw the eye to the smallest section. The nipping in of this shirt also created some blousiness at the bottom, almost like a faux peplum. This was great in camouflaging any problem areas around the stomach, making me feel more comfortable when sitting down in this bodycon skirt.
How to you “alter” clothing items that give you no shape?
