Kathie Lee & Hoda: Bobbie Thomas Style Tips
Sometimes you may think you are looking good but Bobbie Thomas said there are always ways to take your wardrobe and style from looking good to looking really good. She asked viewers to send her pictures of themselves to her twitter account, @bobbiethompson, so she could help them take their style to the next level.
The first woman was a military mother who just moved to Virginia. She was wearing a casual wardrobe in the picture that consisted of a nice pair of slacks, a tight fitting top and a tight cardigan. Thompson said a nice suit is going to make her look more elegant, a shawl collar will show some skin and a longer tank top will elongate her body. The next woman, Kelly, said she was worried about her midsection after having recently having her third child. Thompson said the only thing she would need to change in her wardrobe is wearing a longer cardigan to make her look taller and make her waist slimmer.
Jackie was the third woman and she told Thompson she was visiting from the UK. Thompson thought her wardrobe was great but she thought if she could have worn a brighter shirt with her colorful scarf, it would have made her skin seem brighter. For Suzette, Thompson said all she needed to do was brighten up the frames of her glasses with a little red to make her skin glow and she was going to be stepping up her style. Finally, Melissa wanted to do something with her hair and Thompson said a short haircut would give her some height and make her look longer.
