Follow these simple tips to make the most of your silhouette:
Slender or String bean
You are fairly straight up and down and may crave curves. You are best suited to jackets and dresses that cinch in at the waist as this will give the illusion of a waist and instantly make you look curvier. If you wish to add a bust then try high neck tops, fills, ruffles or a pussy bow neck, or try a chunky statement necklace
Most styles suit you but steer clear of very baggy clothes as these will drown you, look for clothes that create volume. Steer clear from Spaghetti straps as they will make you appear angular.
The pear is the most common silhouette and by far the easiest to style. The main aim here is to balance out your curvy bottom half by adding volume from the waist upwards. Think bold, bright tops with large lapels, statement sleeves & frills.
Accessories will become your best friend, wearing statement jewellery will draw the eye upwards and away from the hips. You can have lots of fun with a variety of patterns, shapes and colours.
Steer clear of bright colours on your bottom half, this will add unwanted definition
This is often referred to as the ideal female body shape, Hourglass body shape is curvy with well proportioned boobs, hips and a nipped-in waist.
Look for pieces that flatter your waistline.Show off your neckline in V-Neck and scoop necks, look for high waisted and palazzo trousers, these will emphasise the curve of your hips without making you appear bigger than you actually are. Invest in a magic waist belt. You will not regret it.
You are pretty much in proportion but tend to carry your weight around your tummy but have fab legs and great boobs, but don't really have a defined waist line. Look for movement in your clothes and pieces that finish on your hipline. Aim to lengthen your torso but wearing the lower cut neckline. Empire line is a great shape for you and you are best to avoid tops that cling to your middle. Look for hemlines with embellishments, you want to draw the eye down to your legs and master the art of layering. Killer heels are great for you.
Strawberry/ Carrott / Interted Triangle. ( there are many names for this shape )
You have broad shoulders but narrower around the waist, hips and bottom. This is the least common of the body shapes. You should look at adding structure below the waist. Try to avoid high necks and those that accentuate the bust, no one wants a monoboob! Keep to muted colours on top, less of the paler lighter colours. Try the sweetheart necklines and V-neck, draw some attention to your cleavage. Opt for skirts and dresses that sit above the knee. Show off your best asset.
