Boo Hoo: What to Wear If You're Skinny

September 11, 2007 by Courtney
shefinds |

The Mirror, the English newspaper that's more tabloid than world happenings, reaffirmed its commitment to skinny women and those who obsess about them with an article devoted to "What to wear if you're skinny." That's an easy one — just about everything! What can't obnoxiously thin women wear? They suggest the skinnies stay away from wrap dresses and leave them to the "curvy" people. Oh, and models should avoid the color black, too. You wouldn't want to disappear now, would you?

For those whose days of wearing a size 0 were reserved to when they were 12 (if ever), there are a few things to be salvaged from the article… simply take everything they say and do the opposite, which leaves you with about as much good advice as models have fat on their bones. For the skinnies, they recommend large prints and pleats; anyone above a size 2 knows those styles are best left on the racks. A pencil skirt with a flair at the hem? Please, the average woman knows those scream 'hips', 'hips', 'hips' with fervor.

Perhaps I'm being too hard on the perils of being model thin in today's society? Still, how often does a skinny wander into the plus size section and sigh, "Oh, I wish this came in my size?"

What do you think? Leave us a comment with your weight beefs! If you're thin, is it really that hard to look good? Or do you face just as much trouble dressing as the average, size 12 woman?
