The Apple Shape: The Apple Shape Usually Consists Of Big Hips And A Flabby Tummy.
Use Clothes To Sculpt Your Midriff, So It Looks Less Like An Apple, And More Like An Apple Core. You Want To Draw Attention To Your Bust And Legs, And Well Anything Else You Love About Your Body! Don't Hide In Baggy Trousers! Show Off Those Gorgeous Legs In Straight Or Boot-Cut Trousers To Draw The Eye To Your Legs And Away From Your Stomach. Show Of Your Bust By Wearing V-Necks, As They Draw Attention Down Towards Your Bustline. Patterns Are A Great Way To Draw Attention To And Away From Areas Of Your Body, Stripes Can Bring Attention To Your Bustline BUT Be Careful, Not Worn With The Right Clothing And It Can Draw Attention To Your Waist And Stomach, So Try Wearing A Tailored Jacket To Draw The Attention Upwards.



The Pear Shape: With The Pear Shape You Want Too Show Off And Emphasise Your Bust & Shoulders Whilst Drawing Attention Away From Your Hips. A Strapless Maxi Dress Is Great And A Must Buy, Try To Find One With A Nipped In Waist And A Flared Skirt As This Draws The Eye Away From The Hips. Pair Shapes Usually Have Small Shoulders Too, When Looking For Jackets And Blazers Shoulderpads Will Help Broaden Your Shoulders And Balance Out Those Wide Hips, Add Shoulderpads To A Jacket If It Hasn't Already Got Them. Adding A Skinny Belt To The Skinniest Part Of Your Waist Will Draw Attention Away From Your Hips. Use Dark Colours With Your Trousers/Jeans, Dark Bootcut Jeans Will Elongate The Legs And Will Balance Out With Your Hips.


The Boyish Shape: The Boyish Shape Or 'Straight Up & Down' Is One Of The Most Uncommon Shapes And Has One Great Advantage To It, You Can Wear Pretty Much Anything! But Lots Of Women With This Shape Say That The Feel Unfeminine And Find It Difficult To Find Clothes That They Feel Comfortable In. Short, Fitted Dresses Emphasise Those Long Legs And Show Off Your Slender Shape. Add Feminine Touches  To Your Outfits And Pay Attention To The Fabrics You Wear, Frills & Ruffles On Tops, High Heels And Gorgeous Statement Jewellery. Give The Illusion Of A Waistline By Adding A Large Belt To An Outfit, Or A Parka To Emphasise Your Waist.

Most Shapes Of Skirts Work Well But A Pencil Skirt Will Do Wonders For Your Shape! Add A Simple Shirt, Tucked In With A Button Or Two Undone To Show A Little Cleveage. Draping Will Help Clothes Drape Over Those Gorgeous Curves, It Will Also Hide That Tummy!
