At Stylit we’re all about helping you find the fashion you love for your body & budget. One of the cornerstones of every woman’s wardrobe is the LBD (Little Black Dress). Perhaps you have a few, but there should always be one staple little black number that you can throw on in a hurry and will never fail to make you look and feel like a queen.
Styling is all about taking the focus from your least favorite features while amplifying your best assets. In case you haven’t discovered the LBD for your body, we’ve got a simple map to help you out.
1) If you want to amplify your top and hide your bottom (A Shape)
If you are smaller on top and want to create more symmetry between your hips and your top you should consider a Halter Dress. It will show off your shoulders for a more hourglass look. If you’re not into showing off too much cleavage, opt for a turtleneck halter instead.
2) If you want to look taller (Petite ladies)
If you are vertically challenged you should opt for clean lines and elongated shapes that you find in Sheath Dresses. This will automatically make you appear longer. Caution: stay away from lengths that go below the knee so the focus stays on the slenderest part of your leg.
Petite frames should also be cautious with embellishments that can translate as too girly. Your small stature coupled with too many bows or lace equals a little girl look
3) If you want to create a more defined waistline (H Shapes)
If you have a square torso, choose more structured looks such as a Peplum Dress to fake your waist with fashion. Your waist will instantly appear slimmer than your top or bottom.
4) If you want to flaunt your curves (X or Hourglass Shape)
If you’ve got curves and you want to add some va-voom, a V-neck Dress will open up your chest and draw the eye downward, which will make your waist appear more narrow. Built-in darts and panels in your LBD will add further definition to your figure.
5) If you want to add definition (Large and Plus sized)
A Wrap Dress by nature, only hugs the slimmer parts of your body while skimming some of your more juicy bits around your lower half. This cut will flatter your figure and keep the focus on all the right places.
6) If you want to disguise your arms
Whether or not your arms are a problem area, many women prefer to keep them under wraps. You don’t have to look matronly, the trick is to keep sexy embellishments and tasteful cutouts on your LBD.
7) If you want to downplay your upper body (V Shape)
If your shoulders are wider that your hips, you don’t have to disguise them under mounds of fabric. Instead you can add balance with an asymmetrical neckline.
8) If you want to disguise your mid-section
Many women feel self conscious about the size of their waist. When a good pair of spanx just ain’t cutting it, simply move the waistline on your LBD by either raising, lowering or completely eliminating it.
Stylit exists to help you discover the fashion you love based on your body type, budget and age. Knowing your body and which silhouttes make you look your best is half the battle.
