Dressing for your body shape can sometimes be hard, especially when trends and styles are constantly changing each season. Pinpointing your exact body shape, will set you up for easy shopping experiences and a better looking wardrobe.
We’ve taken three of the most common body types for women and have chosen the best styles to suit each shape.
For straight or boyish body types, think Cara Delevingne, Kate Bosworth and Kendall Jenner. Sometimes petite or athletic, compliment your body with styles like playsuits and jumpsuits where you can accessorise with a belt to give the illusion of a defined waist. This will help accentuate your upper body and hip region. Take advantage of your assets, by showing off those trim or athletic pins. A high neck ensemble will draw attention to your legs 11 and absolutely turn heads. Give it a go today and try our Penelope Playsuit, Santa Monica Dreams Playsuit or the Ceremonials Dress.
Think Kim Kardashian, Marilyn Monroe and our office favourite – Beyoncé. What these smoking lasses have in common is their curves to waist ratio. If you follow suit with these girls, you need to avoid fabrics that bulk around your hip and chest regions. They are doing well by themselves. Opt for elegant midi dresses with plunging neck lines or high waisted pants and skirts. Again, with curves like that – why would you want to hide them away under frumpy pieces of material. Take a look at our Wild Heart Dress, Jadore Dress or the Under Pressure Dress.
For those who consider their body type on par with the likes of Iggy Azalea, Jennifer Lawrence and Shakira, welcome to the pear shape club! Small busts, tiny waist and beautiful curvy hips. If you have been blessed with these attributes, try and invest in anything high waisted! The idea is to show off those fabulous curvy hips and bottom of yours. If you want to even out the playing field, wear block colours on the bottom and a printed or detailed top. Add some big earrings and you should be good to go. Have a squize at our Crossing The Line Skirt, Wanderer Skirt or our Izabel Maxi Dress.
Love & Luck,
