Get to Know Your Body Shape and How to Style it

Style is not all about wearing the trendiest outfits. It’s more about wearing what is right for your body and looking great and comfortable in them. Knowing how to dress for your body shape is the first step to looking great.

You don’t have to wear just anything because it looks nice or looks great on someone else. With this in mind, you might have to know which dress design, colour, pattern, or cuts will look good on your body and how to style them. Being able to identify all these is a great step to being confident in your outfit. All you need to do is to identify what works for your body type and go with it.

What is your body type? The surest way to figure this is taking time to know your body shape. For instance you can look at your four main features such as your shoulders, bust, waist, and hips. The relationship among these numbers will reveal the shape of your frame. Understanding your body shape both horizontal and vertical proportions can be very helpful in guiding you on what to wear.

Know your body shape: There are several ways to define your body shape. The most basic way to do this is to determine if you are either an Hourglass, Inverted triangle, Pear, Rectangle or Apple.

The various body shapes: Hourglass shape has shoulders and hips fairly balanced with a defined waist; inverted triangle has shoulders that are broader than their hips; an apple shape is curvy with a less defined waist; pear or triangle body type has hips broader than their shoulders and finally, rectangle shape has all their four measurements fairly uniform and have a straighter build.

Identify what clothes fit what body type: Knowing your body shape influences your decision on what kinds of clothes to shop for. For instance, if you have an hourglass shape, you can wear clothes that accentuate your curves or otherwise. And if you have a triangle shape, look for pieces that add volume near your hips to help balance your frame.

Knowing how to dress for your body shape also helps you to look your best because it helps you to focus more on your assets and also deemphasize those areas of your body that you don’t necessarily want to draw attention to.

In essence, it is important you are knowledgeable about the body you have so you can wear the best outfits that works for you.
