So, now you know your body shape let's build your new wardrobe!!
The key to a successful wardrobe is to have your cornerstone of staples, a few core pieces that work with everything.
The place to start, as the song says, is at the beginning...
Think of your body as a Dressmakers Mannequin
Then start by building a good foundation for your clothes...
Underwear is often neglected and ignored but its plays a vital role in creating structure for your foundation.
So, lets burn that ill-fitting Bra and discard the grey tatty Knickers and lets go Shopping!!
Lift & Support:
Get good lift to create a defined waist area and ensure good support for the Bust.
Shapewear can provide that all important smoothness and support to the midriff and also creates shape.
Bodysuits help to provide the lift and support needed and are also great for controlling the tummy area whilst also looking good.
Shapewear is a girl's best friend
It Smooths out the tummy and hips
Creates lift to all the right places and
Flattens out the bits you want to hide.
Bodysuits are excellent for creating shape.
They provide support and lift and smooth out any lumps and bumps.
It's all about highlighting and enhancing your best bits!
Drawing the eye away from your problem areas.
Minimising the stomach area and elongating the overall body length.
Wrap tops in soft flowing material give shape without clinging to your tummy.
Keep colours solid and patterns simple and avoid loose clothing as it only reinforces your shape.
A-Line skirt works best.
Avoid pleats and gathers at the waist.
Go for lengths that finish at or above
the knee to draw attention to your best bits.
Drop waist or Empire line work wonders to enhance your shape.
These skim the waist and flatter your figure.
Avoid clingy material.
Again, go for a v-neck shape
and a shorter skirt
to flatter your shape.
Go for a low rise waist
with a slight flare
this will balance out the body.
Jeans with a boot cut again will balance out the body.
Go for Jeans with a lighter shade on the thighs as this will add shape to the legs.
So with those basics in mind you can now put together your capsule wardrobe...
Don't forget to have fun with accessories which are always good for adding variety and colour to your basic wardrobe...Now get shopping and Enjoy!!!
