Thu Nguyen

Knowing how to dress to your body type is a fashion fundamental. Adding bulk with structured shoulders with blazers, opting for a looser fit to add textile weight and creating curves with belts and accessories are a few tips petite Thu Nguyen shared when interviewed in the village.

What she wore...

Blazer -- "This is from Sirens, in Portage Place. I love yellow. Normally I just wear black. Today I decided to go for something colourful."

Tank top -- The Gap

Necklace -- Costa Blanca

Rings -- "Spring, online shop called asos.com and Hush & Shout. It says love on it. They are supposed to be knuckle rings but since I have small fingers it fits on my finger."

Watch -- River Island, a British brand, from asos.com."

Purse -- Marc Jacobs.

Leggings -- Aritzia

Shoes -- "They're vintage from Value Village."

Where are you from?

"Originally from Vietnam; I came here for school. I'm doing interior design at University of Manitoba. I just got off work now. I wore a blazer because it looks pretty formal."

Fashion essential

"I normally wear dresses, even if its colder I'll wear leggings and a jacket. I used to not be girly but I changed and have become girlier, so now I wear floral prints and bright colours.

Fashion tip

"I am petite, so it's hard to find super-small sizes. I try and wear looser clothes, and I use belts around my waist to help bring curves. Bigger sizes aren't bad if you're small. You just need to know how to dress your body."
