Making the most of your “Girlie Figure”
Ladies, how many times have you just wanted to throw your hands up in the air because you cannot find something that fits your body shape right? Oh sure it looks good in the catalog or on the store mannequin, but when you buy it and take it home…..it looks hideous and you then have to return it….yet another inconvenience for you. It is frustrating isn’t it?
It happens to me all the time,…so below I have listed a detailed description for the shapes and attached what the model shape looks like emphasizing the figure you may be according to looking at your own body. I hope that this is helpful to you….so please take the time to comment!! I need to know what it is that you are looking for so that I know how to better stock the store that I am building “just for you!”
Have a curvy “hourglass” figure?
If your shoulders and hips are pretty evenly balanced and your waist is defined, look for styles that flatter your curves and emphasize your waist. Instant fashion fixes include: wrap-style tops or dresses that tie at the waist. Fashionable belts—look for this season’s special colors and textures—that define the waist. Shaped jackets, or cropped styles that focus they eye on the middle. Soft blouses and body-skimming knit tops over soft sweeping skirts or pants that skim the hips. Sweetheart necklines are especially flattering.
Need to create a waist?
If your proportions are fairly equal from the shoulders through the waist and hips, look for styles that create the illusion of a waist even better, find styles that play up your slim hips and shapely legs. Instant fashion fixes include: jackets and tops with lightly padded shoulders, which help make your waist appear smaller instantly; a belted trench with shoulder epaulettes is a great way to create shape. Fluid tunics or blouson tops and long jackets over short straight skirts, leggings or slim pants show off great legs. Avoid wide pants or long skirts that create a boxy shape.
Are you wider in the hips?
If you’re narrower in the shoulders and bust and curvier through your hips and legs, look for styles that create balance between your upper and lower body. Instant fashion fixes include: jackets and tops with lightly padded shoulders, wider lapels, boat necks, embellished or ruffled necklines. Think layers: a soft hip-length cardigan or vest worn open over a blouse. Scarves and shawls at the shoulders lend upper balance and draw the eye up. On the bottom, opt for flowing fabrics in dark solids or smaller prints, and graceful sweeping lines. Boot cut jeans balance hips.
Are you wider on top?
If you’ve got broad shoulders and a larger bust with narrower hips and legs, look for styles that visually slim the top and play up your narrower bottom. Instant fashion fixes include: fluid, unstructured tops and jackets that skim the body. Soft knit jackets and open cardigans over a tonal or lighter top help create a slimming vertical line, as do tops in dark colors with V-necks and open necklines. And avoid heavily embellished designs and padded shoulders. Keep pants on the narrow side to avoid creating a boxy shape. The new tunics over leggings or slim pants is a great look.
