Do you want to look good every single day? Believe it or not, if you know how to dress correctly for your figure, you can. What tops look good on an hour-glass shape? Dresses for skinny girls? The following is a women’s fashion guide for basic figures.
Women come in all shapes and sizes. In fact, that what’s makes us all beautiful and unique. If you want to look good in whatever you wear, the trick lies in learning to play up your assets.
Do you have great legs? A small waist? Are you curvy? Here’s a list of the basic shapes and the types of clothes and cuts that flatters them.
1. The Inverted Triangle
This figure type is basically broad around the shoulders, narrow on the waist. Stay away from shoulder pads and boy-cut coats. V-neck tops and flowing skirts (flaring or bubble) look really good on this body type.
2. The Triangle
The complete opposite of the inverted triangle: wide hips, narrow shoulders. Balance out your figure by buying tops with sleeves, padding or bold prints. Wear dark-colored bottoms to create the illusion of smaller hips.
3. The Hour-glass
Curvy women usually have small waists. Emphasize the smallest part of your waist by wearing belts and waist-cinching dresses. As that saying goes, “If you’ve got it, flaunt it!”
4. The Pole
Skinny and lanky, this body type needs to create the illusion of curves. Wear open tops (scoop necks, etc.) and flowing skirts that cinch at the waist.
Warning: Dressing correctly for you figure will gain immediate results. So, head on to the mall now!
