I'd been reading a bit about body types and colour analysis and now I could see that the styles didn't fit my figure at all and the colours were completely wrong, no wonder these garments spent so much time just hanging in a wardrobe.

The ties look really nice crossed over the front:

You can see the ruching here, it's a narrow hip friendly detail:
