STYLE YOUR SHAPE

Rather than looking for “figure fixers” shop for the pieces that will showcase your body in all its glory

CURVY

Your shopping list:

Off the shoulder tops, paper bag trousers (cinched in at the waist, fuller on the leg), circle skirts, wide belts and low V necklines.

STYLE TIP

Get your proportions right. A full skirt calls for a fitted top and vice versa. Use belts to highlight your waist, and off the shoulder necklines and asymmetric hemlines to break up your silhouette and reveal some skin.

INVESTMENT PIECE

A statement CIRCLE skirt.

BOYISH

Your shopping list:

Ruffle and frill-trimmed blouses, mid length skirts, high waisted trousers and mutton sleeves.

STYLE TIP

Use your clothes to create shape. Fit and Flare tops with high cut jeans, blouson sleeves, ruffled panels and skirts that hit mid -calf will add curves in all the right places.

INVESTMENT PIECE

Mutton-sleeve top.

TALL

Your shopping list:

Long-line boyfriend blazers, extra-long tailored trousers, bias cut maxi dresses and tops with extra-long fluted cuffs.

STYLE TIP

Wear maxi dresses or extra-long tailored trousers that puddle over trainers or flats.

INVESTMENT PIECE

Long, wide leg trousers.

PREGNANT

Your shopping list:

Breezy boho maxi dresses, smock dresses, A- line tops. All-rounder jeans and easy sliders.

STYLE TIP

Invest in a good pair of maternity jeans – it’s all about distressed skinny styles this season. Find a pair with an expanding tummy band.

INVESTMENT PIECE

A floaty Maxi dress.

PETITE

Your shopping list

Short dresses, A-line skirts, fitted jackets, ankle cropped trousers and short tops.

STYLE TIP

Choose neat shapes that won’t swamp your petite frame. A jacket that nips in at the waist, trousers that flash some ankle and short dresses with a seam that sit higher than your natural waistline will  all give the illusion of length.

INVESTMENT PIECE

A fitted military styled jacket.

And remember to team your looks with the key make up trends –

Try a “BLUE CRUSH” look to strike an instant cool look.

Fashion’s love of blue make up shows no sign of waning and is the perfect partner to the season’s new jewel tones and denim pieces.

A simple straight flick of cerulean blue liner on the outer corner of the eye is edgy but easy to wear and try Chanel mascara in Cobalt and Essie Nail lacquer in STARRY STARRY NIGHT. A blue crush indeed!
