Clothing styles to suit all shapes and sizes

If you like to keep up to date with the fashion world it is important that you know exactly what kind of clothing suits you; otherwise all of your research into current trends and styles will simply go to waste. It is all good and well knowing what’s hot and what’s not at the moment, but dressing in a style that doesn’t flatter your figure in the least bit certainly won’t do you any favours.

Instead of wearing a mishmash of styles simply because someone has told you they are popular right now, find out what your body shape is and dress to impress with clothes you know will suit you. This doesn’t mean you will only have a few pieces in your wardrobe though – no matter what body shape or dress size you are, there will be more than enough for you to choose from in the way of clothing and you can buy it all online to help save you time and money. It is very easy to figure out what body shape you have – all you need to do is stand in front of a full length mirror in just your underwear and examine your body.

If you have a small waist with hips and shoulders that are roughly the same size, you are likely an hourglass shape. If your shoulders are quite narrow, your waist small and your hips and bottom a lot larger, you might be a pear shape. If you carry most of your weight around your middle and don’t have a well-defined waist, the apple shape is your most likely bet. If your shoulders, waist and hips are all roughly the same size you probably have a boyish or athletic shape.

Hourglass shapes should accentuate their little waist by wearing belted dresses, high waisted skirts and trousers, and jackets and tops with three quarter length sleeves. Pear shapes should divert attention from their larger lower half by wearing wide leg trousers and tops and dresses with embellished shoulders. Apple shapes will want to disguise their rounder tummy by choosing empire waistline dresses and A-line skirts. Boyish or athletic shapes should create the illusion of curves with asymmetrical lines, pleats, belted waists and skinny jeans.

Once you have mastered the art of dressing to suit your shape you can be sure that you will always be able to choose the best clothing choices for you. When shopping from now on you will know exactly what will suit you, so you won’t make any accidental fashion mistakes.
