Tiers of Joy

I want to apologize for not having a post up yesterday. This post was all ready to go but the blogger website was down all day! I'll try and have another one to make up for it later this evening! Anyways, back to the important stuff! Want to add a touch of flirtiness and femininity to your look of the day? The girly accent of tiers to an outfit not only put off a cutesy vibe, but can help in adding volume to a look to help balance out your silhouette! With a piece such as a tiered skirt, the volume on the bottom would work well with a fitted top or tank. By pairing a flowy top with a voluminous bottom creates excess bulk and may create a more rounded silhouette than the ideal hourglass shape. Look for tiered skirts that start to ruffle right where the elastic waistband ends. If there is space between the elastic and the first tier, it can add volume to your hips and thighs making you appear wider. But try on different styles. If you look hard enough, you just may find that perfect piece!
