Hi there, I’m model Jaimie Hilfiger. Today, I’m at Pistol & Stamen showroom in Hollywood, California. Since growing up in a fashion family, I have a keen sense of style, and I always know what looks best on people. Sometimes, it may be hard to choose a formal dress if you have larger thighs. Well, I’m here to offer you some tips. First, I say to choose a darker color. Black, navy, and brown all look great. Next, choose a style with a looser fit, something that’s not going to show every curve of your body. Empire waists and tunics always look great. I have these samples here from Adrianna Papell, and this one just ends at the waist, and then it flares out. So, you’re not going to show any part of your leg or your thigh that you definitely don’t want to. And, for the shorter option, also by Adrianna Papell, it’s clenched a little bit at the waist, and then immediately it flares out, so you’re also going to avoid showing your problem areas. Lastly, I say to always finish the look with heels, which will elongate your legs. Thanks for listening to my style tips. For more fashion advice, follow me on Twitter @ JaimieHilfiger. For eHow Style, I’ll see you next time.
