Depending on the day and your mood, you may want to enhance your body more than other days.  Understanding your body shape, waist placement and chest size will help choosing outfits and make shopping for flattering outfits so much easier.

Dressing Tips to Flatter Your Body:

  1. Accentuate your neckline with statement jewelry and stylish makeup and hair.  This draws attention to your beautiful face.
  2. For an hourglass shape, balance top and bottom to appear equal in width (shoulders and hips), then nip your waist in with details or belt.
  3. If you wish to enhance your curves, wear body skimming or fitted pieces and a boosting cutlet bra for va-va-voom.
  4. To appear slimmer and taller, wear monochromatic colours from top to bottom, including shoes. Stick to shades in the same colour, such as a light cream blouse layered with a darker cream sweater or jacket. Light with light and dark with dark have the same general effect.
  5. Top your outfit with a jacket, wrap or scarf to complete your look and balance, lengthen or slim your overall appearance. Long adds length and has a sliming effect, short or waist enhancing styles create an hourglass shape and draws attention to the waist.
  6. Choose a handbag that is in proportion to your body.

Shaping Tips:

  • Balance your body with lighter shades on smaller half, and darker shades on larger half.
  • Appear leaner by accentuating smaller half with body skimming styles.
  • Accentuate your waist. Shape body with vertical or diagonal detailing - like panels that define waist or other styles that draw attention to the waist.
  • Give length to your body by wearing tops and bottoms that place your waist in the middle and give the illusion of longer legs (adjust for long torso or short torso).
  • Slim your body with tops for your chest size. Large chests look best with a low neckline in skimming styles, fine knit or flowing fabric layered with a deep V jacket or cardigan. Small chests can wear high necklines for a longer look or chunky knits and other styles that add volume.
