You don’t need to be perfect to look beautiful!
And I’m going to show you how!
The standard of beauty have been changing through the years and what was once ideal is not anymore. Today,
Beauty equals individuality, NOT perfection.
For example, do you think stars have perfect measurements? Most of them don’t! But they do know how to showcase their best features (usually with their stylists’ help.)
So, what’s their secret to looking great?
Let’s start with the basic knowledge that’s key to looking your individual best. (All stylists use this or similar classification as a reference. Think of it as a builiding block to create your stunning image.)
One of the quickest ways to look like a celebrity is highlighting your figure’s best assets, drawing the eye toward them, and not focusing on imperfections. That is key to looking AND feeling your best!
There are 7 female bodytypes and each with its unique characteristics:
This’s the most balanced type and considered a golden standard, because it’s characterized by equal width of shoulders and hips, thin waist and equal in volume breasts and hips.
Owners of the hourglass figure, please do NOT hide your beauty under the volumenous, shapeless clothes. Instead, you need to emphasize the femininity of your figure with form-fitted dresses, pencil skirts, and high-wasted pants.
Belt is your best accessory to highligh that gorgeous waist.
As the name suggests, it’s the same as Houglass, but even more curvy.
Women of this type should choose ensembles with an emphasis on the waist and décolleté, advantageously emphasizing their appetizing forms.
Attract attention to your wrists and ankles (by default skinniest part of the arm & leg) with large bracelets and rings. Wear elegant shoes with cropped trousers.
Again, notice how much this type benefits by highlighting the waist?
🔺 “TRIANGLE” (aka “pear”)
This type is characterized by feminine rounded thighs, slender waist and small chest. (Throughout the ages, this was considered a quintessential female form that was greatly portrayed in classical paintings.)
Women with this figure can visually balance their upper and lower parts, by drawing the eye upward with tops in bold colors, interesting prints, gorgeous necklines, fun jackets and textured sweaters. Dresses with eye-catching details on top. For accessories it’s statement necklaces,earrings, vibrant scarves, or faux-fur collars.
This is a trim athletic figure, which is characterized by fairly broad shoulders and not very pronounced waist and hips.
The owners of this figure boast slender hips and long legs, which should be emphasized with bright bottoms: skirts and pants in contrasting colors, prints, interesting cut and material.
This type of figure is characterized by tall stature, long legs with not very pronounced waist and overall thin-boned physique.
Use the height to your advantage! You can wear many layers, mix textures, wear bold prints, oversize, statement jewelry and accessories. Go for trends, as most of them will look great on you.
Also, this type can benefit from feminine lines and cuts.
This figure is similar to an “elongated rectangle”, but it’s a bit more wide-boned.
If décolleté area is your best feature, then highlight your neck with gorgeous jewelry and an interesting neckline. If you have rocking legs, show them off with skirts and gorgeous shoes. Don’t forget to draw attention to hands with bold nailpolish, rings, and bracelets.
“OVAL” (aka “Apple”)
The figure of this type is when a volume of waist size exceeds the volume of the bust and hips.
Elongate the figure with vertical lines and suits or dresses in one solid color. Accentuate the décolleté area with eye-catching neckline paired with a bold lip.
For jewelry, layer long chain necklaces to create a vertical line. Try 3/4 sleeve, as it showcases a wrist (thinnest part of a hand) and adorn it with bracelets. And don’t forget about statement rings.
Of course, these are general recomendations, as I can’t see you my dear reader. Because unique style formula is born not only from your figure proportions, but also your height, your face features, knowing what colors and textures complement you, your dress code …
