Hey Divas,

People are always excited at the sound of “owanbe” and I think it’s only natural because it creates an avenue to party and make merry. It is an outlet of fun and high vibes. Some see it as a means of getting away from those strenuous activities they are involved in. Whatever the reason for the high spirit “owanbe” creates, they are always a fun place to be.

When planning to attend that next wedding ceremony as a guest, the first thing that comes to mind as a fashion conscious person is about what to wear. Well, when planning your outfit as a wedding guest you need to consider your body shape because people have different shape and size and as such specific styles suit some shape than the other.

For a person with a straight shape, it might be tricky to dress right and nice but it is the easiest to dress up. To get the right outfit, you have to understand your body, that is, a straight body shape means your bust and hips are approximately at the same width and you have little or no waist definition ( your waist is usually between 1 -8 inches smaller than the bust). Most models fall into this category.

So as a straight-shaped wedding guest, it is important to dress in outfits that will accentuate your assets and also create a waist for you. Another advantage is that a lot of clothes will usually suit you as long as you avoid shapeless clothes.
