Have you identified your body type yet? If not, check out "How to Dress for your Body Type" Part 1. You will find a guide on how to measure your body and identify your shape to find clothes that work best for your body type.

As discussed, no body type is “bad” it’s only a matter of how you dress for it!

Femme Body Types- How to dress for your body

Round body types: have an upper body that is bigger than the lower body, no defined waist, slim hips and broad shoulders. They also have great legs. It can be a tricky silhouette to dress, especially when buying off the peg

Tip 1: Create waist definition - Go for belted dresses

Tip 2: Full skirts work great for this body shape as they make the hips appear fuller.

Tip 3: Wide leg pants will look great on you as they elongate your legs and also creates an even balanced look.

Tip 4: Wear tops with interesting necklines, like v-necks to keep the eyes moving upwards.

Tip 5: Wearing tops with vertical lines will help elongate your torso and creates a leaner look, wear them to your advantage.

Tip 6: You have beautiful legs, go for cute shoes with embellished details, this will keep the focus downwards and away from your midsection.

Tip 7: Bold jewelry and scarves will keep the focus on your face

Diamond body types -If you have broader hips than shoulders, a narrow bust, and a fuller waistline, you have what’s called a diamond body shape.With this type, you may carry a little more weight in your upper legs. You may also have slender arms

Tip 1: Wear straight cut and flared trousers. This will fill out your narrow legs.

Tip 2: Wear longer jackets. This will help in giving you a waistline and cover the wide midriff.

Tip 3: Wear flared skirts and dresses. This will again fill out your lower body and make your midriff look smaller or in line with your lower body.

Tip 4: Wear shirts with vertical lines and big collars. The lines will make your midriff look slimmer and the big collar will make your shoulders wide.
