Ok, so maybe not one of the ‘standard’ body shapes but dressing for a petite body has its own set of do’s and don’ts…. plus I promised my sister-in-law that I would write this for you, so Kirsty, this is for you
If you are tiny in stature, then most of the rules for your body shape still apply (click here to work out which shape you are) but there are few extra tips and tricks that can make you feel 10 feet tall! (sorry, couldn’t help myself).
So what does exactly does ‘petite’ mean? Well to me it usually it means you are slightly lacking in the height department (5ft 3… 5ft 4 sound familiar?) and usually you are a size 4, 6 or 8 – BUT you can be quite petite in stature and a slightly larger size too…. the same rules apply.
Here are some familiar faces you might recognize that fall into the petite category!
The Olsen twins, Kylie Minogue and Kourtney Kardashian are all petite beauties – but there are still curves involved!
Essentials are… well, an essential part of anyone’s wardrobe (wow, we’re off to a good start today!) but when I look at all those blog posts and magazine articles about “The Wardrobe Essentials” not many of them actually live in my wardrobe, and if they do, they don’t actually get many outings.
The more I thought about it, the more there were other pieces in my wardrobe that have become my “essentials”, things you wouldn’t always think you would get great cost-per-wear from, but I really do!
So here are my 5 wardrobe essentials you NEVER knew you needed!
It’s time for the last, but certainly not the least of our gorgeous body shapes – the juicy Apple!! Now for all you older ladies out there, this shape may start to sound familiar – it tends to be a shape quite a few of us turn into as we get a little older – but there can also be some Spring Apple chickens in the mix too!
So what makes you an Apple shape and how can can you look your best?
It’s time for the gorgeous column’s turn! I think our wonderful column-shaped women are lucky – you can wear clothes that really show off your athletic shape or you can dress with the illusion that you have a bangin’ hourglass body too! You are the chameleon of the body shapes bunch! But first…. what makes you a column?
Ok you sweet pears, it’s your turn! When I’m styling clients, I often find pear shapes the easiest shape to dress (controversial, I know…. but hear me out!) Pears best bits are easy to show off, and the bits maybe they don’t like are the easiest to hide in my humble opinion – but first, let’s talk about what makes you a pear and why.
Once again here is the MOST important thing to remember – this is not at all about your size, dressing for your shape is all about balancing the proportions of your body – no matter what size you are, you can still look amazing!
