How to dress your body type!
First of all let me say this. There are no rules when is comes to fashion. Like who made the rule no white after Labor Day? And Why? tuh…Wear why makes you feel good and rock it with confidence! That’s style. Style is more of an attitude in my opinion. Have you ever woke up on the wrong side of the bed in the morning and put on a dope outfit that changed the scope of your day? You’ve heard the saying look good feel good right? Well, I feel that is a valid statement! Fashion changes lives! A simple outfit and a bomb weave can make you feel like a million bucks! Push through baddie!
Again, wear what makes you look and feel good! Be a rule breaking, trendsetting, unbeweaveable baddie!
When it comes to dressing your body type you should first start by addressing your body type. You want to start by determining what your body type is. Then you will need to dress those proportions accordingly. Remember there are no rules, but it’s suggested you know what you are working with and how to best highlight your features in the most tasteful way. God made us all unique and we are all wonderfully made.
A few body types I want to address for women are Pear, Hourglass and apple-shaped.
Stay with me sis… trust me you want to stay tuned for this! I’ll make it quick and easy.
Pear Shaped women should accentuating your upper body! The goal is to make you appear longer and create more of a balanced look that accommodates your figure! Try an a line skirt with an embellished top. You could also add layers to a simple look. Flare denim jeans and a statement jacket will also make your bottom half appear smaller. Love yourself girl, or nobody will!

Hour Glass body type: Slim waist and hippy hips can be somewhat of a challenge when you have an hour glass figure. Style tip: Keep your tailor on speed dial because it can be a challenge to dress that tiny waist and wide hips. Don’t be afraid to flaunt your curves ma. Go for outfits that are belted and cinch the waist like a cute wrap dress or high waist belted trousers. Embrace those curves girl!

Apple Shaped women should minimize your mid section and flaunt those sexy legs mamasita! Try a high waisted skirt with a cute flowy loose fit top. If skirts aren’t your thing add a pair of low rise trousers to the mix! Don’t forget to serve cold shoulder every now and then. Apple shaped women should allow their legs and shoulders to be the star of the show! Push through and serve legs like NeNe Leakes. Make them notice when you walk through sis.
