Holiday Dressing For Your Body Type

6th Dec 2014 / By Guest Contributor

Are you an hourglass, apple, pear, or wedge? Use this body type calculator to find out! Members of our social media team share how they dress to enhance their best features.

Hourglass. Ashley (image above), Social Media Intern, shares, “I dress my body type by choosing clothes that work and move with my natural curves, not against them. I wear clothes that cinch the waist, whether it be by adding a thin belt, or wearing a high wasted bottom, to enhance my body in the right way. The key is finding clothes that are not too baggy or too tight.”

Apple. Rosemary Chicas, Social Media Content Marketing Coordinator, shares, “Showing of my curves with a high waisted skirt that accentuates my waistline & legs is always a good option for me. Skinny denim and a lightweight (fabric) top is my go to style. I love a relaxed boho-chic look, but making sure I don’t get lost in the layers or baggy clothes is important, as it can be overbearing for my body type.”

If you are looking for a classic LBD that looks great on any body type, can we suggest the Ingrid Fit and Flare dress paired with JF Biana pumps?

Wedge. Melina, Fabletics Social Media Manager (Left) shares, “I dress to accentuate my lower body. I love a high-waisted flouncy skirt, tailored shorts, and dresses that show off my gams. I tend to wear solid, subdued colors up top that elongate my torso or draw attention away from my midsection. For bottoms, I love a fun, eye-catching print or pop of color. Pieces with a structured silhouette are an wedge-shaped gal’s BFF! ”

Pear. Irene, JustFab Social Media Manager (Right) shares, ” My shoulder measurements are smaller than my hip measurements so I choose outfits that create balance.”

No matter your shape, the ultimate rule for holiday dressing is wear what makes you feel fabulous.
