Once you know your body shape, you can learn whats styles suit you. Be adventurous as you want to be, try lots of different colours, fabrics and accessories. Finding your right style and colours will boost your confidence and give you that inner knowing that you look great, which in turn will make you feel fabulous too. Know your body shape – learn what suits you.
There is so much out there in the shops and there is a style and colour to suit everyone. Just because fashion says yellow is the colour of the season does not mean it will suit everyone. In the same way that skinny jeans are this seasons must have, as they also, do not suit every body shape. So it is all about finding what is right for you.
Love your body and work with what you have. Learn how to play down the bits you don’t like and emphasize the bits you do like.
What are the clothes you are wearing, saying about you?
Know your body shape – learn what suits you
If you are small busted like me, choose blouses and tops with some detail either a tie or perhaps breast pockets or some detail in that area. I usually choose fairly fitted tops that are not too clingy, if I wear the baggy shirt or dress I just look lost.
Make the most of your assets and choose a V necked top as this will draw the eye down and open up the neck area. Try complimenting that with some jewellery in the neck.
Make the most of your fabulous figure and emphasise your feminine curves. Try a wrap dress which shows off your waist and skims over your hips.
Pear Shaped Figure
Choose trousers that are either wide leg or boot cut as this will balance out your figure. Coming into suummer there are lots of loose peg leg trousers, which are great as they don’t cling to the hips and are totally on trend. If you are not very tall try wearing vertical stripes, this will help to lengthen and slim your shape.
Petite ladies always choose small prints, and clothes that are in proportion( ie from a petite range). Look for designs that give height. High waisted jeans will make your legs look longer. Wear shoes the same colour as your trousers as this will also add height. Avoid large accessories particulary large handbags.
Find your style
When you find your style, it makes shopping easier and so much fun. Start experiementing with fabrics and colours and enjoy putting outfits together. I can show you how to build a wardrobe full of clothes you love and love wearing. You will need less clothes in your wardrobe to make more outfits.
