A Dress For Every Body

You might think that focusing on fashion is a bit shallow, but style and self-presentation are a form of communication. If you do it right, how you dress, style your hair, and walk into a room can be like a poem of the self. The key is identifying your body type and seeking out styles that not only accentuate, but also make you feel beautiful:

Rectangle

You have: a straight, boyish frame with minimal curves and your bust, waist and hip measurements are similar.

Look for: ruffles to add texture and feminine flair to your linear figure.

Petite

You have: a short stature of 5’4″ or under.

Look for: mini skirts with a flared silhouette to elongate the legs.

Hourglass

You have: shoulders and hips that are similar in size with a small waist and bigger bust.

Look for: elevated pencil skirts that skim your frame and highlight the hips to even out the chest.

Pear

You have: hips that are wider than your shoulders with fuller thighs.

Look for: full A-line skirts to accentuate the waist and balance out your bottom-heavy bod.

Tall

You have: a long vertical frame at 5’7″ or taller.

Look for: midis with asymmetrical hems to adorn your long stature.
