HOW TO DRESS WHEN YOU’RE A TEENAGER AND A KID?

When adolescence rings its bell, the subjects concerned find themselves in a sometimes uncomfortable situation. For some, body development is slow to manifest itself, and the waist remains small during this transitional phase. It’s not easy to keep up with fashion, but there are always possibilities. Here’s how to choose your look when the body refuses to grow fast.

WHAT CLOTHES TO CHOOSE?

When the body doesn’t follow normal development and the teenager is still small, finding the right size of clothing is a challenge. However, the principle is simple when it comes to dressing well when you’re small: wear clothes that fit the shape of your body. The following tips can help the teen, girl or boy, to achieve this goal during this difficult period of growth. The first one is to have a custom-made m sewn, copied from any model he or she likes. For the second option, he can choose a normal size garment, and send it to an experienced dressmaker for alteration. Finally, as a third possible choice, he can go to the children’s department to find a garment that would fit his exact current size.

HOW TO FURNISH THE WARDROBE?

To go out dressed well, the teenager must wear outfits that fit his or her morphology, as indicated above. Depending on his or her choice of clothing supply – custom tailoring, alterations or the children’s department – the teen can start taking clothes according to the following criteria. First of all, avoid loose fitting clothes, prefer instead tight-fitting tops and jackets that will enhance the upper body. For the bottom, choose a style that fits snugly, at the ideal length, at the ankles or below the knees. Leave clothes long, their length will make the silhouette more compact rather than elongated. When it comes to colours, specialists recommend plain tones, which will add a touch of elegance to this made-to-measure clothing style.

WHICH ACCESSORIES TO ADOPT?

For this last section, the principle follows the guideline. For a little teenager, the accessories to be used should be proportional to his or her size. Shoes, belts, watches and other jewellery must be in harmony with the general size of the wearer, therefore small. Otherwise, observers will retain the bad taste of a small body in a large pair of shoes. However, it would have been easy to make people forget the small body by advancing elegance.
