DRESS TO IMPRESS: HOW TO CHOOSE THE CLOTHES THAT ARE RIGHT FOR YOUR BODY TYPE
Choosing the right clothing for your specific body type can do wonders for your confidence and the way other people perceive you.
Whether you are petite, full-figured, short, or tall, the tips that follow will help you fine-tune your wardrobe and look your best. >>>
Curvy: A curvy, hourglass shape is best served by clothing that emphasizes feminine attributes. Thinner fabrics create a more form-fitting look, while a bit of inexpensive tailoring can bring in a waistline and create a better sense of balance. Avoid unstructured clothing, as well as clothes with excess fabric that hangs or drapes.
Full-Figured: Full-figured women should aim for streamlined clothing with looser fabrics that can flatter their best features without drawing attention to others. Solid colors–especially black– and vertical stripes both have a slimming effect. Avoid clothing with large or distracting patterns, and don’t give in to the urge to wear boxy or loose clothing, since those tend to add pounds.
Petite: For a petite or boyish figure, it is vital to emphasize the female form, especially around the waistline. Use belts and keep an eye out for dresses that cinch or flare at the waist to create the illusion of fuller hips. A mixture of textures, pops of bright color, and intricate patterns can all help to cut a womanly figure.
Average: Women with an average body type have the largest variety of clothing to choose from, simply because most companies produce clothing lines with the average woman in mind. Use thinner fabrics and tailored cuts to accentuate your favorite features, and don’t be afraid to experiment with various colors and patterns. Avoid shapeless clothing or clothing that divides the body the body into equal halves, such as a blouse and skirt that are the same length.
Short: For shorter women, the goal is to create an illusion of length without sacrificing a strong silhouette. Dresses and jackets can both make your body look longer, especially when they are in monochromatic colors or have vertical stripes. Short heels can work wonders, but be advised that extremely high heels can have the opposite effect by drawing too much attention. Avoid horizontal lines, thick belts, and strong contrasting colors.
Tall: Tall women should make it a priority to find clothes that help break up the body’s length. Layering and texture-mixing are excellent ways to do this, and accessories can create an eye-catching focal point. Fun colors and patterns are another great way to diminish height. Avoid heels, vertical stripes, and monochrome color schemes, all of which will make you look even taller.
No matter what your unique body type is, the advice above will ensure that you choose the perfect clothing to flatter your form. While there are no absolute rules in the world of fashion, these guidelines can help you to feel more secure and confident in your clothes in any occasion. BIKINI
