6:02 Now I know I don't feel right when I wore my denim jacket like this one, so straight. And I am 4'11, 53 yrs old and petite. I had one denim jacket that has curves at the back and loving it. Thanks for sharing new sub here.
If you are ewer 50 buy the best quality clothes you can afford,the same for the accessories ,good scarf dos the miracle, don't follow trends so much,just colors but opt for more neutral shades and go with color matching scarf ,crisp white shirt ,and don't ,wear tight clothes
This was really interesting to me. I am curvier and tend to gravitate towards structure as it holds everything in. However, this can tend to make me look quite 'butch'. But too much flow on my heavier body makes me look frumpy. This video has raised my awareness about the need to consider how best to combine the two elements. Thank you.
This is the best video ever! I'm turning 42 this month and it was really helpful because of your examples. I understand that you have a target public on youtube channel but this video is for EVERYBODY. I wish you all the best! thank you very much!
Love the structure and flow visuals you included! I'm a petite (5'1", 150 lbs, small shoulders, busty) hourglass shape and the peplum style top/jacket is what always works best. I try so hard to make a basic suit blazer work but it never looks right and accentuates all the wrong stuff ;)
I really liked your tips. I would love to see more on this topic..maybe examples from your closet? I cannot wear straight lines either. I get lost in them and end up looking bigger than I am. Bigger hips and thighs are my biggest problem..with no bust and a petite waist! Dressing is never easy!!
This makes so much sense. I work on my outfits all the time. I wear structured clothes with a twist...here I did not know my twist was the flow part. I am somewhere between a pear and hourglass...I don't tend to wear suit jackets but I bought a BCBG Max Azria black jacket with split sleeves...and I was like...this works for me...now I know why. Great Video...makes shopping so much easier Thank you
I was told to cut my hair at 50 but looking at you with long hair, you look so stunning. What is the rule about long hair and aging? Is there a "cut-off" time for having long hair? Please let me know. I am so confused.
I had waist length hair until I was 60. I only cut it when I lost a huge amount suddenly and developed a big bald spot on the back of my head. I still miss it 4 years later. I use minoxidil and biotin now and that helped a lot, but still not enough to grow it out again. So enjoy it while you have it; may it be forever.
I did cut a few inches and wear it a little past my shoulders one length, well with long layers. I hate my hair short. I am 52 and don’t plan on going shorter. Wear it how you like and feel comfortable. I even had it highlighted professionally for the first time. Things have definitely changed for the better imo.
I'm experiencing that, too. I have wasted money while trying to find clothes that look right. Tunics or tunic - like tops are my go -to as well as stretchy leggings, straight-legged pants, scarves, and sweaters that are drapey in the front. I even shop with a company called Duluth Trading Company that has sturdy clothes that are made for less-than-perfect bodies. Also, I'm only permitted low-wedge heels and supportive flats with a thicker sole per my rheumatolgist's orders. :-( ~Anastacia in Cleveland, OH, USA
Yes. I think the point is that our bodies change shape after menopause and a lot of us are totally lost about what to wear now. It's taken me years to adjust to a totally different shape than I had before.
Thanks Schell I love your vids!... <3 hugs from California! I bought a cute sweater today warm n cozy all clean lines , I`m tall n thin so im gonna soften it up with some distressed yet dark jeans and a soft pink suede low heeled opened toe slides? loafer type and a soft messy bun and maybe a short scarf for flow around the neck or perhaps a side tie head scarf around my hair! i couldnt pass up the seventies colors and softness! Even tho the lines are horizontal up top of the sweater but solid navy at the botton , perhaps that will draw the eye more T shaped ! I think your tips here will work with soft accesories as the mix! Have a great day and keep us rollin in vids please! you inspire us all(O:
+fabulous50s Hi Schell , finally getting back to you ! i took a pic but my hubby was`nt home and my bathroom lights messed up my photos of my outfit, but i`m gonna do another one when my hubby is home next time i wear it! I did try using your tips again today .I wore my jeans with a bit lighter wash across the front and mid calf boots that have a double strap around them to draw the eye outward and to try to break up the length of my very long legs then a sweater that was Turquoise blue with a wider gental swoop on the neckline to again draw the eye outward and my sweater is not form fitting and the length was just above the hip to widen me out a little. I just really like your style tips. Made me think more about adorning what i am blessed with and how to look more put together, Thanks (o;
Perfect advice that took me YEARS to learn hit or miss. I cannot tell you the number of very expensive jackets/blazers I bought when working that really did not suit me. My fav., jacket back then was a peplum waist one...nipped it with the curved lines below. I loved it and though it was gorgeous tourquoise, which is my fav color I could not wear it everyday due to the wonderful color. I would have given ANYTHING for other jackets in a similar style with nipped in waists. I have finally found both a jean jacket and a jean vest that DO nip in at the waist and look great on me. I will NEVER eliminate them from my wardrobe bec they took two years of dedicated hunting to find. Clothing manufacturers want us all to fit into boxy things ( so easily made) and we CAN get them on our curvier bodies in the right size, but they always make an hourglass look dumpy...ALWAYS.
LOVE your videos! Alot of those 'models' are trannies. If they have long arms and the wrist goes beyond the pubic bone.. its a man. Longer index finger. Wire hanger collar bone = man. Jaw and head skull. I call them BAFOMETS.. satanic things
It finally makes sense why I love the look of the straight tailored long blazer on Pinterest BUT after buying one again last week and returning it this week I now know why it didn’t work for me! I’m a super petite (4’ 10”) curvy woman....not a 6’ tall woman with straight lines 😂
I’m a newbie. Enjoying all of your great material, examples, details and the color of your sweater, (might I add), looks great on you. I look forward to viewing more of your videos but right now I’m catching up on previous ones. Have a great weekend!
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.
Don't know about that. I find plenty but still am a size 2 or 3. Clothes for older women aren't really frumpy like when I was little for older women. I remember the hideous housecoats. Ugh and 40 year olds in them. I can afford better and get away with younger styles minus crop tops and ripped jeans and over trendy though still live check by check since I'm widowed. Price often doesn't make a difference on fit. I've for example won expensive jeans new and cheap on eBay and were ill fitting while cheaper brands were a perfect fit. I look for expensive looking but at a cheap price. Some stuff is so overpriced yet look like it's from Walmart.
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)
Same here! 5’3 fit I don’t want to imitate a teenager or a granny I like to have fun and experiment but not cross either line. Help! Most difficult thing for me is finding clothes that fit well pants are always extra long, huge waist and sweaters, jackets always a bit too long on sleeves. Always searching for petite on line and preferably physical stores to try things in. Is a real challenge. Lol! Help!
