WINTER STYLING TIPS – Tips for your body type

Styling yourself is complicated. We all have that little voice in our head that tells us to continuously purchase the same style over AND over again. It’s comfortable to stick with what you know. It’s familiar and safe.

All of a sudden you realise you have nothing to wear. You posses a bulging wardrobe full of the same old thing. Nothing works together and nothing fits the way you wished it should.

Dressing for your body type NOT your height and weight is the most productive, exciting way to embrace fashion. All of us gorgeous ladies come in a marvellous selection of shapes and sizes. And there is an interesting element that links us all together. We all have the same body types. Size doesn’t matter! Dressing for your body type and getting it right makes you feel your best in every outfit you put together.

This week I have compiled winter tips and pics for 5 popular body types. If you are unsure of your body type I have added a few body type traits next to each type.

GLAMOR HIPPIE WINTER STYLING TIPS

Apples

 

Celebrity Apples:

Jennifer Hudson and Catherine Zeta-Jones

Main identifying traits:

Narrow hips.

Less defined waist.

Full bust.

Broader shoulders.

Winter fashion tip: When buying long sleeve tops, aim to purchase tops that skim not cling. Apples are best to wear monochromatic or just a single colour. Wearing a different colour on your top and bottom will cut your figure in half. The aim is to elongate your body shape and keeping the colours simple will do this.

Main identifying traits:

Your shoulders are wider than your hips.

There is little definition between your hips and your waist.

Smaller bust.

Winter fashion tip: Accentuate your shoulders and hips, this will make your waist appear smaller. High neck jumpers are a must, they will give the appearance of having a fuller bust. Choose jackets and tops that cinch in at the waist.
