“Dressing for your body type” is a topic that’s all over magazines, blogs, and red carpets. Talk of apples, pears, and other comparative fruits isn’t helping anyone. Sola shows us that defining and accentuating your body type isn’t about size – it’s about proportion. Sola Adelowo AICI FLC, Founder & Certified Image Consultant ImageCube, LLC explains!
1. Stop looking at the numbers on your clothing tags. Attractiveness isn’t about size; it’s about fit!
2. Define your body shape in geometric terms. What is your widest part? If it’s your hips, you’re a triangle. If it’s your shoulders, you could be an inverted triangle. If they’re about equal, you’re probably a rectangle.
3. Most people have more than one body type. Do you have a visible waist? If so, you’re an hourglass.
4. Choose clothing based on what will make your body’s proportions even. People’s attention is drawn to what they don’t expect to see. They expect hips and shoulders of equal width – wear a jacket or a peplum skirt to even out your proportions. People expect to see a waist – define yours with a belt.
