How To: Dress for your shape

Hey guys,

I haven't posted in a while but I've got a highly requested piece for you! Dressing for your shape is hard to define because there is nearly an invisible line between what suits who these days.  I'm going to show you guys what works best for your shape. This doesn't mean that other items won't suit you, it just means these are the items that suit you the most. I think that's what people get confused about; you think you're restricted to wearing things that suit you the best when that is not the case at all; hey if you ain't got it, fake it.  Sit tight guys, it's going to be an interesting one!

Before you know what works best for you, you gotta know what your shape is first, right?! I did a bit of digging before I started writing this post so you can trust me on this one.

Side note: My sister recommended I do this post but with a twist; how to wear whatever you want without worrying about your shape, I could do a full post on this for you if you want me to but I want to keep it simple for the minute. While writing this post I realised that why would you wear other things that don't suit you as much as the things that do suit you? It just doesn't make any sense to me. What do you think?

Hope this piece helps you and I could never thank you enough for the ongoing support!

Love from your girl

  5. I've never heard of proportionate, banana and busty apple but they make sense. I like the way you've kept the text to a minimum. I'm hourglass but with skinny legs and I only looked good in a bikini 10 years ago! I loved this post.

    1. Hourglass is the most flattering shape in my opinion! Thanks so much xx
