The biggest problem with fast fashion is that its concept is missing one key thing: women are different. Because if two people have similar sizes, it doesn't mean that they can wear the exact same size and style of clothes. But how do we know what suits us best and which pieces bring out the best in us?
First, it's important to know your body type.
The Pear shape
The pear (or triangle) body shape is characterised by narrow shoulders and a smaller waist. The upper half of the body is usually smaller than the lower half of the waist. Your cleavage is less full, so it's important to emphasise other areas. Try to balance out the fuller lower body by layering over the top.
Use form-fitting, pretty dresses to accentuate your waist, and opt for darker trousers with a straight or wider cut. It's also worth choosing A-line skirts and dresses that are above the knee. In addition, feel free to wear patterned dresses.
The hourglass shape
We call your figure an hourglass if your shoulders are almost the same width as your hips, and you have a shapely waist and full figure.
It's usually easy to dress for this body shape, as you can choose from V-neck, boat-neck or crew-neck dresses. You can even feel comfortable wearing peplum tops and collared blouses. When it comes to choosing your outfit, you're completely free to choose anything you want. Show off your figure and always emphasise your waist! Avoid square cuts and oversized pieces.
The Apple body shape
The apple body shape is fuller towards the middle of the body. The abdomen and chest area will be in focus, so you need to optically lengthen your torso.
Tops that are lightweight, flared, and fall below the hip line will be perfect for this body shape. Avoid tops that are too tight or crop! Above-the-knee jackets, jackets and vests can optically lengthen your torso.
Wear clothes that are not too tight. Anything with a V neck and boat neck can be absolutely ideal for your body shape.
The Sporty Body Shape
Your figure resembles a rectangle: your shoulders are the same width as your hips and you have a narrow waist.
Because weight is evenly distributed across your body, the goal is to give your figure a more shapely appearance. You can wear turtleneck tops or opt for ¾ sleeve tops in darker shades. But you can also opt for a balloon jacket or a fitted jacket, which can be belted and buttoned to perfectly accentuate your waist. Stay away from oversized sweaters, jackets and tops if you can!
A-line dresses and skirts can also create a visual hourglass, so be brave and opt for these preferred styles!
Down below, you can wear skinny jeans or trousers, or even a looser fit with a cinched waist.
By following these simple steps, you'll easily find the styles that suit you best. If you're still unsure, consult a stylist first!
