    Default Fashion to suit your body shape

    Choosing a fashionable style that suits your body shape is a difficult task. Many of the clothes in vogue could be bohemian or gypsy in style but we all don’t want to look messy. There are a lot of lovely elements that can add to your look and shape. For example, many clothes look very pretty with embroidery or bead work. Also, wearing sequins and other sparkly things during daytime makes you look more beautiful than what you are. Here are some tips on how to add the extra zing to your shape.

    * Accessories

    Accessories help a lot to look more fashionable. Wearing one or two fashionable accessories that tie in with rest of your clothes makes you look more attractive. They help you to look stylish and create your own fashion statement. Shoes, scarfs, beads, tops or skirts are the essentials in your wardrobe to make you look glamorous.

    * Skirts

    While choosing a skirt you have to be very careful and select a style that suits well to your shape. If you are a little larger on your bottom half, then wear skirts that flare out at your bottom. Many varieties of skirts that suit varieties of shapes are available. If you are small on your bottom half and bigger on your top, then only choose a print; so that the attention gets drawn to the right area of your body.

    * Belts

    Belts are the most basic pieces to add glamour. Belts of any type and color are suitable for slim women, but natural tan color is considered to be the best. You should wear it about three inches from your waist over a dress or long top because it helps in drawing others attention to this part of your body. So wear a belt of same color as your dress with a good-looking buckle on it. This makes your hips look slim.

    * Dresses

    Wear dresses that suit your shape. You have to take extra care in choosing your dress if you want to hide any part of your body. It is best you wear dresses made of a firmer material so that they will hold the shape in case you are a little flabby. Numerous styles are available with a wide range of colors and patterns to suit any kind of body shape and personality.

    * Shoes

    Shoes are essential part of your fashion. They can make you look casual or smart, in whatever way you want. A wide choice of sandals are available that range from flat Indian ones to those with a high wedge heel. A wedge heel is suitable for women of any age. Moderate heels are the right choice for anyone. Brightly colored ones are the best only for a younger woman. Shoes will be available in many colors, but a natural brown color is the best choice. Flat Indian sandals and with jewels on them also look fashionable.

    Default Buy Clothes to suit Your Shape

    Buy Clothes to suit Your Shape

    Layout your clothes before putting them on
    and check the proportions. Juggle jackets,
    scarves & belts to re-arrange the clothes to get
    the look you want.

    • Thinner fabrics are more slimming.
    • Tops and bottoms of one color will make
    you look thinner.
    • Wear clothes that fit.
    • Wearing too large clothes will exaggerate
    your figure not hide it.
    • Avoid belts unless you have a slim waist.
    • Use accessories carefully.

    You can make your wardrobe impressive with mix and
    match jewellery.Shoes depend less on you body shape than
    you height. Do not buy clothes on impulse. Plan before you
    buy a blouse or pants. Be somewhat scientific about shopping,
    consider your body type, and colors.

    Ask your self some questions:

    • Do you have anything you can mix and match with it?
    Does it match your lifestyle?
    • Will it be comfortable, nonchalant, and easy to wear?
    • Is it machine wash or dry clean only?
    • Will it fit your budget? Is it appropriate?
    • Is it a fad, can it be worn more than one season?
    • Is it of good quality? Quality counts, it is better
    to have four or five mix and match out fits of quality,
    than 8 or 10 'steals.'

    Think in terms of outfits when you shop, and be practical.
    When you buy a new dress, be sure you have shoes and
    other accessories to go with it. Maybe a jacket or scarf to
    wear over it to give it a different look.

    Clothes Styles and Body Shapes

    • High collars shortens necks.
    • Tight tops with short sleeves and breast pocket
    is detracting from your figure. Shoes with straps
    shortens your legs. The torso can be shortened
    or narrowed with seam lines, belts, bows, and collars.
    • A short necklace can shorten your neck.
    • A scarf or belt that hangs down toward the
    legs will make the legs appear longer. Knitted
    texture, lace, floras, prints, and plaids can
    assist in creating an illusion.
    • Thicker vertical lines in plaids lengthens and slims.
    • Wear a larger print where you want people to look
    and smaller print where you do not want them to look.
    • An all over print can camouflage figure problems, but
    prints here and there can create a fuller you.
    • Prints around the neck and over the shoulder can make
    your shoulders appear wider. Just wear prints near the
    parts of your figure's assets, because they are usually
    more eye catching than a solid color.
    • When buying pants be sure they fit well. Defects are
    emphasized in a pair of pants that may go unnoticed in a skirt.

    Petite women.

    • keep clothes in line, slim narrow belts.
    • A slight contrast in colors and fitted lines will
    flatter you endlessly.
    • Also stay with fabrics that are soft and flowing
    that fits well.
    • Over powering prints should be avoided.

    Tall women.

    • indulge in wide belts, avoid tight clothes and skirts
    that are to short or to long.
    • Beauty expert Stephanie Faber recommends tall
    women play down their waist by wearing their
    blouses over the pants and skirts and avoid tight belts.

    Hip heavy triangle woman.

    • use clothes with vertical lines to make an up and down illusion.
    • V-necks and skirts with slits up the sides are also good.
    • Clothes with small padded shoulders should be chosen.
    (Too big of pads will make you look like a foot ball player.)
    • Wear long tops that go passed your hips.
    • Choose jackets, tailored suits and shirtwaist dresses with
    straight, classic cuts.
    • Lighter colors on top can be worn, this brings eyes up.
    • Wear dark stockings and avoid patterns.
    • Select vertical, fluid patterns and avoid bulky fabrics.
    • Adopt the just below the knee look in dresses and skirts.
    • Choose accessories close to the same color clothes you
    are wearing including shoes. (This gives your body an
    unbroken slimmer look.)
    • Avoid very wide pinafore skirts. Stay with straight or
    Aline skirts.

    Top heavy woman.

    • choose long jackets without shoulder pads.
    • Do not wear blouses with fancy details and ruffles.
    • Do not wear clingy fabrics on top, choose darker colors on top.
    • Do not wear tops that are to light.
    • Tops with dolman or raglan sleeves and ones that fit loose
    and slims down to hug the hips and waist are good.
    • Wear pants or skirts that are pleated to bring the eye down.
    • Choose thin materials like cotton, or cotton jersey.
    One color dressing will also be thinning.
    • Flat shoes are best unless you are short, then wear heels.
    • If your legs are in good shape shorter hem lengths will
    draw attention away from your top.

    Rectangular type woman.

    • accentuate curves by wearing jackets or tops that hug
    the waist, feminine thick sweaters over skirts or pants.
    • Use patterns in your tops or bottoms to add dimension.
    • Round out the neckline with necklaces, scarves and
    other accessories, and use shoulder pads.
