I’m a huge fan of fashion recycling. I like buying clothes that I’ll be able to wear many times. And I don’t mean a little black dress, but the same dress worn to a job interview, a date, or a family occasion – why not? 😉 I chose a dress for each figure type (you can check here which letter you are). Each of them, teamed with proper accessories, will look great both during official as well as more casual events. Take a look at my suggestions.
1. TO WORK FOR FIGURE TYPE I
Regardless if you work in a state institution or in a company that treats office elegance with a pinch of salt, it’s still good to look professional. Even I, when I have an important meeting, I try to team my fashion temper down a bit and reach for a bit more subdued accessories, make sure my dresses aren’t too short and so on. It’s good to wear a neckerchief instead of a jewel necklace and add glasses (even if your eyesight is 20/20, you can always go for neutral glasses) and decorate your hand with a watch. Don’t go crazy with colors, all you need is 2 or three shades, including a subdued one, like beige, navy, or white. Your goal is to make a profession-al impression of a trustworthy person. Figure I looks good in diagonal stripes, that’s why your dress can be patterned 😉
2. FOR A COFFEE WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND F
They say that despite appearances women don’t dress for men, but for other women. There’s surely something to it, as only a girlfriend could appreciate lavishly decorated stilettos or a purse that was so hard to get because Rihanna carried exactly the same one to a party in New York a couple of days ago 😉 Wear your newest gems to a meeting with your girlfriend, you’re very happy to have bought them, aren’t you? 😉 Wear new stilettos, a colorful coat and run 😉 Petite F ladies like strong colors which help them stand out from the crowd. A red dress hits the jackpot. It can be with a bow neckline, which guarantees that it’s modest enough to be worn both to work as well as to family occasions. Red has many shades; warm seasonal color types will like the brick and coral shade, cool types – raspberry and blood.
3. ON A DATE FOR FIGURE TYPE H
A universal dress usually lacks a deep cleavage (which is so loved by all men), as it wouldn’t be such a great choice to a job interview or your nephew’s christening. You need to accentuate your sexuality in a different way. Above all, wear something red. It’s the color of love, passion, sensuality. Earrings or a lipstick would be enough. Of course red only isn’t enough; reach for stilettos or fishnet tights. These universal aphrodisiacs have been already known by our grandmas. Combined with a hairstyle falling on one eye, or a girly plait, they’ll melt a lot of male hearts. H figure types need dress cuts that’ll create an illusion of a waistline. A pencil dress with a frill will totally stand up to the task!
4. ON A WALK FOR FIGURE TYPE O
My dear O, we need to makes your belly a bit, so your dress should be loose, a bit oversize. The one that I chose is beautifully oversized with a frill at the bottom. If you want to make it look a bit more elegant, team it with a jewelry like collar, a clutch, a simple coat and nude stilettos. If you’re going on a walk, wear some comfy heels though – golden sneakers or fuchsia ballerinas. Put flowers in your hair and decorate your ears with shiny glamour style earrings –you can’t stop being a lady even if you’re going on a walk with your dog 😉 Remember about a neckerchief or a scarf. It’ll warm you up when it gets chilly, and if you wrap it around a shoulder it’ll mask your belly.
5. TO A PARTY FOR FIGURE TYPE A
Girls of figure type A look good in pencil dresses, as long as they make sure to enlarge their shoulders (puffs, wide sleeves, etc.). A more universal style? A shaped items – a tight top and a flared bottom. It seems like it’s Kate Middleton’s favorite style, so you already know that you can attend official parties in outfits like this. Just wrap an elegant jacket over your shoulders and pin an elegant pin into your hair (like this one). What should you do to make the whole look a bit more evening-like? Well.. sequins are a great idea. A fascinator, a headband or a clutch. Let your hair loose, apply a red lipstick, use some eyeliner… Awwww… 😉
6. TO AN IMPORTANT EVENT FOR FIGURE TYPE X
What I mean are events that require us to wear elegant and modest looks like christenings, first communion, weddings. It’s good to get inspired by women who hold important and representative positions like the first ladies, princesses and queens. They’ve mastered this style to perfection. Take a look at Kate Middleton’s, Agata Duda’s or Laticia’s the Queen of Spain outfits. What do you notice first? OK, let me give you a hint 😉 Above all, a classic total look reaches the peak of elegance. A total look – when everything’s in the same color. If you go for pink, the dress, shoes, purse and earrings should be pink, and so on. This idea isn’t you? You can go for navy or nude accessories. Remember that your should cover your shoulders (especially in church), wear tights and that slippers with nice toes are the best shoes.
7. HOLIDAYS AT THE SEASIDE FOR FIGURE TYPE Y
What do you associate summer with? A wicker basket? Flip flops or sandals? A straw wide brimmed hat? Sunnies? Or maybe all those things at once? 😉 Nothing should prevent you from combining them with a shirt like dress that you wear to work and that you wore to a coffee with your friend recently 😉 If you like it and feel comfy in it, pack it into your suitcase! Ys feel great in envelope tops (take a look at the collage below) and flared bottoms. Decorate your hands – wear rings and bracelets. They’ll draw attention to the bottom parts of your body when you keep your hands down. Your legs are nice, so try to fight cellulite starting now, so that you’ll be able to show them in the summer.
