Question
What kind of clothing would suit me? I'm a short, slim asian girl that is tan. i'm sort of pear shaped with a slim upper body and chunkier legs, especially thighs. I've got black hair and brown eyes. Please help! (i'm a teen)I'll prefer jeans and a neat t-shrit to skirts or dresses anyday. I'm sort of a long-distance runner type too.
Thanks!
Hope Snow
P.S Pls help with makeup if possible

Answer
Hope,
Thanks for your question.  I don't typically send people directly to my website, but I think it will be the best way for you to get answers quickly.  My website is www.mystylerules.com.  You can go there and create a 3D model of yourself for free.  You then enter a private dressing room and 'try on' clothes that are right for your body type.  I hope this helps.

As to makeup.  Since you are more sporty, I would suggest simple makeup.  Keep it light and natural, including lipstick.  Make sure you are taking very good care of your skin with strong sunscreen on your face while you are doing all of that running.  It's the most important thing!

Hope this helps,
Suzette

Expertise

I have a website called www.mystylerules.com. The site allows a woman to enter a few basic measurements and create a virtual (3D) model of their body. The purpose of the site is to give them visual information as to what is right and not right for their body type. I can answer any questions pertaining to body type, style, color analysis, and what is right for each body type.

Experience

I have been a costume designer for over 25 years. I am credited as a designer in over 150 shows, including film, gaming, and theater. As I grew in my craft, I discovered that I had an eye for what type of garment is good for the female body, how each body type looks different the same garment, and how easy it is to create 'rules' to follow to always look as pulled together as possible while maintaining an individual sense of style.
