Experimenting With Your Body Type!

No matter what size you are, you have a “type”. You will find yourself leaning towards the same colours, styles and textiles. Your wardrobe reflects your “comfort zone.” Want to dare to be different? Here are a few pointers to gain some appreciative stares from your counterparts!

Are you super Skinny?

This season’s voluminous silhouettes were made for you! Try wearing a fitted top and a pleated skirt in this season’s bright hues. Balance out your shape with a neutral coloured short box jacket. The same box jacket can be worn with a wispy printed A-line maxi dress. A larger print will add volume.

Another current trend tailor-made for you is the wide-legged trouser trend. Wear an easy fit shirt with pleated wide legged trousers, and feel as fabulous as you look!

Are you blessedly Slim and Trim?

Adopt this season’s print fiesta, and let the colors and shapes do the talking. Try a crop top with a busy A-line maxi skirt to show off your well-worked abs.

Try layering to create interest. A blazer can be like good posture for your look. Throw one on when you want an outfit to shape up and snap you to attention!

Lucky for you, this season isn’t about clingy silhouettes at all! Are you top heavy? Layer a dark jacket over lighter pieces like a hip skimming tunic to downplay a larger chest. Or cinch a full skirt at the waist to accentuate the slimmest part of your torso.

With it’s longer back, a shirt with tails is meant to be worn loose. Use it for added coverage with skinny jeans or toy with interesting proportions.

A few cinches to your wardrobe can create a whole new you. Try it, and feel the difference!
