The Best Dresses For Your Body Type
Need a shopping aide to help you pick the perfect dress? From petite to pear shape, here are the looks that accentuate every body type!
A-line looks are your best friend. They hug the body on the top to give you a nice bust line and then flair at the bottom to make the look proportional. Bubble dresses are also lovely as they accentuate curves in all the right places. Think Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl. She killed these styles.
Fitted mini dresses are adorable on petite frames. Add a nude heel to really elongate the leg and to give you a bit of added height. Kristen Bell and Eva Longoria pull this look off well. Try to avoid dresses that hit you below the knee as they will cut you off and actually make you look smaller.
The wrap dress is a gorgeous look on plus size gals. It accentuates curves in all the right places. The wrap belt will give you a nice waist and create a hour glass figure. Melissa McCarthy has an amazing plus size line that carries numerous wrap dresses in assorted colors and even prints...yes, prints are okay for the plus size gal. Have fun with it!
Pencil dresses are sure to wow. You'll look like you're straight off a runway. Amal Clooney and Blake Lively are examples of how fitted dresses can look amazing and classy on tall women. The pencil dress will flatter your long, lean figure and give you a statuesque glamour.
The peplum dress is a win for the boyish framed. The ruffle around the waist will give you some curves, and the fitted top and bottom will show off that cute figure. Try the A-line dress as well. It will give you a nice illusion of a hip. Or embrace your boyish frame like Twiggy and go for a nice boxy shift dress.
The hourglass shaped gal looks best in a dress with a cinched waist or waist band to really break up the curves on the top and bottom. A fitted dress is nice to really show off the figure as well.
