dress your body shape

HOURGLASS

Curvaceous, you have similar bust and hip measurements, with a defined, nipped in waist.

DRESSING TIPS: Anything with a fitted waist will enhance your feminine shape. Wrap dresses and waist-cinching belts are your new best friends, as are flared and wide-legged trousers to balance your curves. Halter, boat and V-necks with all flatter your fuller bust - but avoid high necked pieces.

RECTANGLE

With few curves, there's little difference between your bust, waist and hip measurements.

DRESSING TIPS: Create the illusion of curves by cinching fuller pieces with a belt at a waist. A-lines will also suggest curves. Unlike other shapes, you can get away with wearing high-necked top, or showing off your smaller bust in a plunging neckline - you can also wear backless styles with ease.

APPLE

While you may have slim legs and arms, you carry a little more weight around the middle and your waist isn't defined.

DRESSING TIPS: Empire lind tops and dresses flatter an Apple shape, drawing attention away from your middle. Full skirts or A-line styles can create the illusion of an hourglass shape; add a belt to suggest definition around the waist. A low neckline or tops with detailing will draw the eye upwards from your tummy.

PEAR

You're smaller on top, with fuller hips and bottom

DRESSING TIPS: Balance out your bottom half with open-neck or strapless tops and dresses, which enhance your upper body. Colorful tops with detailing will also draw the eye upwards. Darker colors help camouflage your bottom half, as do full or A-line skirts.

STRAWBERRY

Your shoulders and/or broader than your waist and hips

DRESSING TIPS :Choose full skirts and wide-leg pants to balance out your silhoutte. Wearing a bright color on your bottom half will also draw attention downwards. Opt for open V- and U-neck tops or dresses to break up your top half, making it appear smaller and flattering your bust.
