I’m a style expert – how to divert attention away from your tummy with a balanced out bottom half | The Sun

IT can be very difficult to find flattering trousers if you're self-conscious about your tummy.

And while wearing a top tucked into a pair of trousers may sound like your worst nightmare, a style expert has explained how to do it in a way that diverts attention away from your stomach.

Alongside a model wearing a black long-sleeved top and some patterned wide leg trousers from Phase Eight, Claire explained in her TikTok video: "Your tummy is on show, there’s no denying that.

"But it’s balanced because you’ve got these beautiful wide leg trousers which are creating a panel from here (tummy) down to here (floor).

"It’s not like we’re scooping it all in."

She then demonstrated what would happen if the trousers were tapered at the end, rather than wide leg, with the attention immediately being drawn back to the stomach area.

Claire added in a comment on the video: "A tapered trouser like a capri plant or skinny jean accentuates the mid-section… it creates an inverted triangle and all the focus is on the tummy."

"That’s unreal actually that difference," the model exclaimed in the clip.

"Because like you say, it’s just creating that column down isn’t it."

"Style tip: creating balance on your lower half will de-emphasise a belly," Claire captioned her video on her Club Forty Claire TikTok page.
