Who does not like to party? June is my Birthday Month! I usually start to plan my Birthday outfit in advance. And it`s a beginning of Summer when we are going to go out and enjoy warm weather. So, we need a few options to look fabulous! Our clothes are supposed to flatter our body. That is why we choose special occasion outfits the same way as we usually do with our everyday clothing. I tried a lot last month and want to share my findings with you!
If you have:
WIDE HIPS and NARROW SHOULDERS
- You need to create an illusion of slimness along the lower part of the body.
- Away attention from the lower part of your body!
- Show off your upper body!
The most flattering dresses for your body type will be:
- Dresses in “New Look Dior” Style
- Empire waist dresses
- Wrap dresses
- Dresses that have details at the bust area, such as ruffles, tucks, and pockets.
SHOULDERS ARE WIDER THAN HIPS
Simply imagine a cocktail glass as you start broad in the shoulders and you narrow down in the legs.
- You will need to create balance by giving the impression of a wider lower part of the body.
- And by drawing attention away from the upper body, underline the waist and create volume on the lower part.
- A-line dresses
- Vertical long V-necklines
- Dresses with hip details, such as a ruffle or pockets
- Asymmetric dresses (one shoulder dress)
- Dresses with Voluminous Skirts to slim down your shoulders
- Peplum dresses
NO DEFINED WAIST
You have no defined waist, weight tends to form on the stomach, you have average to large bust size.
- Take attention away from your middle, since it’s already full.
- Emphasize your bust!
- Show off your legs if you have a great pair!
- Dresses should have their waistline just below the bust or at your thinnest point.
- Shift dresses which skim over your waist rather than emphasizing your thicket point
- Dresses with draping or layers
- Avoid wearing thick belts, which will draw more attention to your middle
- Avoid clingy dresses, which will also draw attention to your middle
- V-necks, plunging necklines, or A-line dresses, to lengthen your body and draw attention to your bust
- Don’t wear a dress with a built-in waistline
- You can pair your dress with a nice opened jacket of a vest
SHOULDERS, WAIST, AND HIPS ARE THE SAME WIDTH
Your bust and shoulders are about the same width as your hipline. You have little or no waist definition and a smaller bust. A lot of clothes will usually suit you and fit you well.
- Shift dresses and empire line dresses, but you also can break the rule with dropped waist dresses!
- You can create a waist with a belt
- As well as dresses, jumpsuits will look great on you.
DEFINED WAIST, BUST AND HIPS ARE EVEN
Your waist is well defined. Your full hipline and your full bustline are the same widths. You may have fuller bust, hips, and thighs. This body type usually called “Hourglass”. And every girl dreamed of having an hourglass body shape like an ultimate dream body for many years.
- The hourglass shape is the perfect shape for structured, more tailored silhouettes.
- This figure was made for dresses!
- Corset dresses to define the waistline
- Wrap dresses
- Bodycon dresses (but don`t go for too tight options, just give some air)
- Fit and Flare
- Empire silhouette highlights your natural waist
- Add a belt to trapeze or another loose-fitting silhouette (not a rule)
I just gave you some ideas about how to flatter your body when you go out. No rules! Time flies, everything changes, and we learn to love our bodies.
Enjoy and be stylish! 💋
