CAPSULE WARDROBE PLANS for Spring/Summer 2017

Dress for your Shape - any Problem Areas?

There are no perfect figures and no problem figures!

We all have bits we like and bits we don't like. The choices you need to make to dress for your shape are going to be different to the choices someone else needs to make. The 5 basic body types are purely generic because few of us have perfect proportions and everyone's figure is slightly different.

Literally millions of women wear the same dress size so you can understand why it's often necessary to adjust clothes to fit your own unique body shape.

Do you sometimes feel you're the only woman who can't find clothes to fit? It's frustrating to say the least, but there are very few women who can buy ready-to-wear clothes that fit perfectly.

We're not cut to a pattern...

Clothes come in sizes 10, 12 etc.. WE DON'T!

We're not cut to a pattern and when we gain weight we don't suddenly jump from one size to another. Off the peg clothes have limitations and anything made in bulk will vary.

We all have lumps, bumps, bits that we like and bits we don't like. The only way to get clothes to really fit is to have them made to measure but as that is a luxury few of us could afford, understanding how to fit your figure is the best way forward.   

It's not your fault if something doesn't fit. Clothes are supposed to fit you not the other way round. But if you dress for your shape you'll achieve the best possible result.

Find your BODY TYPE first

There are just 5 generic BODY TYPES - find the one you are closest to and take note of the Styling Tips for each specific figure type. This will give you the basic shapes and styles to flatter your bone structure.

Then address 'your' problem area...

Measurements and sizes mean nothing...  it's how you FEEL that counts. One woman may enjoy having a Large Bust, another may want to minimize her assets!

You can visually change your body shape, that is you can influence the way you look with the use of Color, Shape and Style. You can choose the parts of your body you want to accentuate and those you would rather camouflage. No matter your size if you want to look taller, slimmer etc. there are ways to do a bit of visual cheating...

There is no such thing as a 'problem area' - only if it's something that bothers YOU but you want to 'influence the eye' check out the relevant Style Tips to achieve the look you want.

Is your concern Horizontal?

Different methods of sizing make it difficult to dress for your shape...

Garments are manufactured and distributed all around the world and although sizes should be regulated they rarely are. Another reason why you should always try clothes on and be prepared to size up or down if necessary.
