Just that really

I'm 5ft 1 and skinny top half and chunky bottom half. What to wear?!

Skirts that are a bit a line

Fifties style dresses. Skinnies in a dark colour with brighter jumpers and tops.

Anything that highlights my waist.

I’m a little taller - more like 5’3 but also skinny top and chunky bottom.

I struggle. In summer dresses with elasticated pinche waists (and I commit the MN sin of leggings underneath).

Winter I tend to go for slouchy tops and fitted - but not skinny- jeans.

I actually think 50s style skirts etc accentuate the issue (5’2 and bottom heavy!) I wear a lot of high waisted skirts which accentuate small waist and (if the right cut) skim the thigh area. Also wear skinny jeans and denim mini skirts with tights. For work pencil skirts and jackets.
