While some might believe that fashion is not for everyone, others do not like to be discriminated against. Every person has a flaw in their body they would want to rectify and most of the time these changes are not in one’s control. However, fashion statements are made when you can choose outfits that would be able to accentuate the positives about your body structure and also hide the flaws.
Style does not come from the latest clothes and the latest trends; rather it comes from the way one can choose to dress to best complement their body. If you are going out to choose a dress for the club, make sure you understand the shape of your body and how a particularly styled dress would compliment the same.
Petite Built: women who have a built which is petite and fragile, then a well-fitted dress would be your best option. This is because anything which hangs slightly loose off the body would simply make you look like you got lost within the fabric and the dress somewhere. It makes one look unnecessarily heavy and bulky. Also, a hemline above the knee would be able to add height and give you a better walk with your dress. If you find anything well fitted with patterns, look through vertical prints instead of horizontal ones to elaborate on your existing height.
Rectangular Built: this is when the person is tall and rather proportionate. The extension of the shoulders, as well as the waist and hips, come almost in line. For such people, it becomes important to highlight curves to give the body more shape. If you too have a rectangular built, your height would be your biggest asset. You can choose a dress which narrows down at the waist or put a belt to achieve the same. This will highlight the curves around the waist and give a better shape to the body, while also highlighting your buttocks to a certain extent.
Triangular Built: this is one of the most difficult body types to dress. The thin and delicate top half of the body can be dressed easily while the rounded bottom needs to be given maximum time and consideration. While the large backside has its own place in the preference list, many people do not know how to dress such a body. If you have a triangular built, along with long legs, then you should choose a dress which comes approximately 2-3 inches above the knee to help draw attention to the legs, or even drape them with shoes like gladiators. Otherwise, attention can be shifted with halters and sleeveless dresses towards the arms, neck, and chest.
Apple Shaped: this is when the body is fuller around the middle, while the shoulders and hips balance each other well. If you also have this kind of a built, you must look for dresses which are column or tunic, instead of A-line fitted. This is because an A-line cut draws attention to the middle of the body while straight cut dresses take away from the middle and put the legs or shoulders in the spotlight.
Hourglass Figure: those few lucky women who have the figure that goes by the book, which means the shoulders and hips aligned together while the waist is narrowed in well enough to show off a perfectly curved body. This is when most dresses that fit well can be carried off, however, if you do buy a dress and have this body type, the important thing to remember is that bill embellishments and patterns make the body look heavier and thus they should be avoided to retain the slender and smooth look.
Let people believe that dresses do not go well with certain body types; the important thing to focus on is the kind of clothing that will be able to make your body type look good as well. There is a dress out there for every size and every built, it is up to you to choose the one which will suit you the best.
