The Bell shape is often simply the result of a bit of middle age spread. In younger years you Bells may have been fairly petit with a nicely rounded bottom but further into life this round peach has succumbed to a bit of middle aged spread. This throws your whole body out of proportion and makes you decide that everything is best covered up these days setting you on a direct route to frump city well before your time.
To combat this you need to need to try to balance out your top and bottom halves rather than simply just cover everything up. The easiest way to do this is to make your top half subtly more prominent so the focus is held there with detail and colour and dress more plainly on the bottom half so that your bum and thighs are minimized and don’t draw the eye.
You shouldn’t be afraid to try feminine styles on the top, Bells often have good arms and waists and if this is the case you can happily show them off.
Keep away from:
Wide V-neck clothes.
Large foppish sleeves.
Anything elaborate or fussy on your lower half.
Take a look at:
Cowl neck jumpers.
Eye catching necklaces.
The key is to draw attention to the feminine highlights like your small shoulders and neck so anything that helps with this is perfect including fussy necklines and elaborate necklaces. Keep the bottom half simple and don’t make any statements with it and you’ll be on your way.
