Chantel Mila, aka Mama Mila, has revealed her method for making every outfit more flattering for ‘any body shape or size’. She believes that following the rule of thirds is the secret way to ‘elevate’ your outfit.
The mother of two children demonstrated the method on her own body. First she tried on a white top over denim mom jeans. She followed the rule of thirds by tucking the top into her jeans, which served to accentuate her waist and break up her outfit.
The mother shared the advice with her popular Tik Tok bill.
Have you heard of the rule of thirds? he asked his followers, stating that it’s the “easiest way to elevate your outfit.”
“If you find your outfits don’t sit quite right, try creating visual interest in the top 1/3 of your outfit to lengthen and flatter.”
The mother said that a variety of methods could be used to create a visual cutaway of 1/3 of the body.
‘This could be with a belt, a tie, or a shape-creating pleat. It’s perfect for any body shape or size.’
Chantel demonstrated the rule of thirds by trying on different outfits and showing how much more flattering they look when the first third of the body is emphasized.
The mom first tried on a long-sleeved white top over denim mom jeans, then tucked the top into her jeans, which accentuated her waist. She did the same trick in a tight top and shorts.
She then tried on a blue striped dress and tied a sash around her waist to make the dress more form fitting and flattering.
Her latest outfit demo was a black T-shirt with black bike shorts, she tied a beige sweater around her waist to break up the outfit and emphasize her upper body.
How to follow the rule of thirds:
* Creates a visual break in the upper 1/3 of the body
*This can be done by adding a belt, tucking in a top, tying off the short ends, or tying a sash around the waist.
* This means that the top will occupy 1/3 of the body and the bottom will represent the other 2/3
Chantel’s followers were delighted with the tips.
‘amazing tips,’ said one woman.
“Love this Mila,” wrote another.
The mom often shares her style tips with her followers.
He recently shared a little-known hack to shorten a belt without having to buy a new one.
Mom said that all the ‘simple trick’ requires is a hair elastic the same color as your belt. She attaches the too long end of the belt to the body of the belt using the elastic.
She previously revealed the best way to tie a coat to accentuate your figure and look ‘effortlessly chic’.
She wraps the belt of the coat around her hand several times, creating a small loop before pulling on the belt, allowing it to cinch much more at the waist.
“Okay, but this actually looks a lot better,” one of her followers said of the clever suggestion.
