An Italian woman for instance is very much in tune with her body weight, shape and height. She will follow fashion trends but not at the expense of looking worse.

Let 's face it. The majority of us are not super models or athletes. We do not have never ending legs or perfect breasts. We cannot and should not wear everything we see in the magazines. You need to fine tune what you see and then personalize it depending on your body type.

Dress pants for large hips:
If you have large hips, wearing skin tight pants will NOT make you look thinner. Instead dress pants that flow, are not bell bottom and are not skinny look best for the woman who has large hips or large legs. The best colors are dark colors just because they do make you look slender.

The hem in the back should never touch the floor. There should never be a break (visible lines) in the pant leg.If there is, they are too long.

Skirts:
Italian women do not wear mini skirts or full skirts if they have large hips and legs. Doing so just makes them look larger. So pleated skirts are out. Instead these women will wear fitted skirts (not skin tight) or A line skirts (if in style) which have give a slendering look. The hem of the skirt can be just below or just above the knee.
