Hourglass figures need waist definition. Otherwise they look big and boxy because of their large hips and boobs. This means they need things more fitted through the torso. They can have more flowy in skirts around the bottom of the skirt.
I think of the terms fitted and I fitted or loose. Flowy is a pretty good description also.
Thank you. Loved this video. Such useful information. I wonder what you might suggest for me since I am short, 5'2", not curvy, 38C, W 32; H36. My torso is so short that my lower rib is 1 thumb width away from my hip!
I am thinking black slacks and a black peplum top with leather accents when I meet my man for the first time this month. I want to look super good. What would be a good top to wear under the black faux leather jacket?
New subbie here and so glad I found you! I have always been a straight up and down person, but these last years have changed shape. I am still average size except my middle has thickened so much! Looking at me straight forward or behind, I'm ok, but sideways--oh no! Can you help with that figure style? I'm not just an inverted triangle, but one with a big upper belly (midriff bulge)...help!
Hi Simar Song and a warm welcome to fabulous50s! I'm happy you are here...I will make a video for your body shape as its very common...I am just trying to find a model to help me demonstrate....Thanks so much for watching and have an amazing week 💕
Thank you for a great video. 😘 I’ve never thought of it as structure and flow. I’ve gone with my instinct but seen that some clothes are ridiculous on me. I’ve got a model body, I’m tall, long legs, small hips, flat chested, but structured clothes are just too much sometimes, as I look very masculine in them. Now I’m much more conscious, thanks to you, to mix it with some flow too.
You are so right! I also have never look good in straight tailored blazers or denim jackets, but but the one that are slimmer in the waist fit me perfect. I know my body well and mostly can tell which clothes are for me.
Thank you for this video. I could see a part II to this video if you would be willing to show a few examples on yourself of what works and what doesn't...i.e. long straight blazer vs. Cinched jacket with a bit of flow....I thick the 3 dimensional view would really bring this theme home to all of us. Great idea and thanks for the tips
Omg, I had no idea I was dressing with a title called "structure and flow". I am tall, slim and straight and I always add flow because I'm not curvy at all (well I do have a round tush, but you can't see that walking forward) . My coworkers always compliment my style, now I can tell them its a name for it and I had no idea. I thought I needed flow because I think I have a boy body type, proud but wanted more femininity, it works out well for me. Great video
Not sure whether to post this question here or on one of your great workout videos. I've purchased many panties that claim no-show under yoga pants, and maybe because my butt hasn't got the lift of yours (yet), none seem to truly disappear. Any suggestions?
And, thanks for inspiring me to not give up on my bat wings :) You look amazing!
I know I'm not fifty but I'm 36 and 4'9" and alot of wraps are long on me and over sized. Is that an okay look? I wear heels and skinny Jean's. Oh, and I'm only 80 pounds. I can't gain. I have health problems and it really upsets me about how skinny I am. I dont want to look frumpy but then I dont want to emphasize how skinny I am. I know I'm asking alot so if you have a chance you can either answer here or email me. [email protected] thank you so much.
I am very slender and a very curvy hourglass shape, so it's important for me to have clothing that's fitted in the waist -- so it shows my figure. But I love both tailored and flowy clothing, depending on the look I want to achieve. Sometimes it's hard for me to find clothes that fit because most clothes seem to be for straighter figures.
Hello, my beautiful Aussie friend. This was brilliant! Thank you for helping me better know how to combine structure and flow - it makes so much sense - and thank you for including curvy ladies. I often feel left out in the fashion world because of my size and curves - and you nailed it! Love you to bits. - xx, Carla
+fabulous50s Hi lovey! Yes! WIDE awake as not even in bed yet! I was shopping (adding to my cashmere sweaters, can't get enough! It's SO COLD already! Yuk!!!) We went out for dinner so were out a bit late. Jet lag? Yum! Where have you been, gorgeous!!!???
Well, I started my retin A journey yesterday...and ended it tonight! I felt SO DRY! YUK!!! We need to talk!!!
I love, love, love what you've done with your hair colour and am going to show my hairstylist; she has always wanted to throw strawberry into my blonde because of my green eyes. Our hair cut is similar. I need a bit of a change.
What are your thoughts on the nuface....and please help me with this retina journey. What is your skin type *before you started? Mine is normal. Always has been. Very hydrated with all my serum etc....HELP!!!!
Love you! Get some sleep! XOXOX Counting sheep......one eye open!!!!
This video was really informative. I thought I had it all figured out by now... but now that my body is changing, my old ways of choosing fashion aren't working! lol Thanks for clearing up my confusion...this makes so much more sense!
Im not confused about what to wear, but I find the fashion industry , along with so much of our system we live in, complain about too many baby boomers getting older, yet they only cater to the younger generation. Stupid move if there are so many aging women. They are missing a huge opportunity.
While shopping at Nordstrom online I notice a page for suggestions. There were HUNDREDS of comments from women stating what you have here. They also pointed out that we are actually the ones with a bit more money to actually purchase, but it's hard to find things that we need that aren't high-end designer priced or for a younger set, being sheer and cheaply made.
Thank you for the tips. I'm 5'3 and have a small belly. I have a hard time putting things together. I love your style and ideas . I like to dress trendy and fun but don't want to look like I'm trying to look 16. I'm not ready to dress like I'm 85 either haha. I still love mini skirts and shorts and I'm 46. I'm short so shorter skirts look better on me. You have a nice weekend :O)
Schellea, you've done it again. I have to tell you, this was a very stressful week for me. But this morning I remembered you post every Friday, and it put a bounce in my step. I love your positive attitude and terrific tips. You've made being over 50 fun!
OMG Schellea you are BANG on. I wish that you had done the video longer to cover other body types. I was always a very straight up and down body without a single curve into my early 30s. Then I blinked and now at 51 I am an inverted triangle. I don't feel comfortable in anything at all except leggings and sweaters. I need HELP.
Hey Oli Wood! I'm happy you enjoyed the video...Your so right...It does feel like a blink and everything changed...There is lots you can do to look amazing and I will make a video on this but in the mean time focus on how awesome you are after having 51 years of life experience! Have an amazing day 🤗
+Michele Lupe-Bowe Thanks hon. That is basically what I have resorted to wearing. I was once the girl with everything in my wardrobe - dresss, tailored suits, flowy skirts, pencil skirts etc etc. Now I wear nothing but leggings with sweaters etc. My husband is a very down to earth man who is always in jeans so he loves whatever I have on and thinks I look beautiful no matter what but sometimes I want to wow him with a dress but I just don't feel comfortable anymore.
Hi Schellea. Well I had to buy an outfit yday for a special occasion...seems I applied the rules correctly, with a flowy cocktail dress and a cropped 3/4 sleeve jacket. Thanks for yr time and effort as usual, and have a great weekend x🌻🌻🌞
