How To NOT Emphasize The Waist, Illustrated By The Example Of Queen Letizia

Queen Letizia is a Spanish icon of style. She is 45, prefers national brands, isn’t afraid of experimenting with fashion choices, and always tries to look modern and smart.

One of the trademarks of her style is dresses with belts. They emphasize her slim waist and feminine figure. The queen has a lean body, so she often goes with white outfits, which make the best of it.

However, even the icons of style make mistakes sometimes. The thing is, if you are ready to experiment and try different styles, there are always risks, and two of Letizia’s recent outings are the perfect examples.

First, she was seen together with her mother-in-law in a bright summer dress, which looked like an orange top with a floral dark-blue skirt. How can you go wrong with this? Simple. Instead of a belt, there was a clear line that was supposed to represent the waist.

Apparently, the dress was too large for Letizia, shifting her waistline way lower, almost to the hips. This gave her body a strange shape. It looked like Letizia didn’t have a waist at all. Sure, it was an honest mistake, right?

The next time she appeared in public wasn’t any better. That time the queen chose a light summer dress, again, with a low waist line. Moreover, the belt-like feature was too wide virtually blending the waist with hips. Huge mistake!

The waist is a wonderful area, which can make women of any figure beautiful. That’s why some ladies use compression underwear and corsets. It’s only logical that if with the right approach the waist can make a curvy woman slimmer, a mistake in this area can make a slim woman not so slim!
