Have you seen the newest trends in tunics? They are called sharkbite tops, because it looks as if a shark just took a big bite out of the middle of the shirt.
There are even extreme sharkbite tops.
Similar to the sharkbite is a style known as the handkerchief hem.
These stylish tops create a fun, flirty look. But if you carry weight in your hips, you should know that the lines in these garments may not be the most flattering. As you can see, if the longer sides of the hem hit your hips at their widest point, the hem can actually make you look larger all the way down.
If you are not worried about bringing attention to your hips, then, by all means, go for this cute style. But if you have reservations, another alternative is the asymmetric-hem tunic.
There are also triangle hems. I love the tops below.
So check out all these different styles. And remember, the important thing to note is where the hem hits you. Because the hem creates a visual line, and that is exactly where your eye will be drawn.
P.S. If you decide to wear a triangle-hem top, just make sure the triangle isn’t pointing to something you don’t want it to.
