Yes, ladies, it's time for the 'little black dress' to make a reappearance for the party season in Lowestoft! If you're investing in a new frock this year, here are a few pointers about choosing the right style to suit your body shape...
Getting dressed is a whole lot easier when you know what pieces work best for your shape. Most women fall into one of four categories: circle (thick around the middle), triangle (larger at the bottom), hourglass (curvy but evenly proportioned), and rectangle (straight up and down)
If you tend to gain weight around the middle (or you simply want to hide a few post-pregnancy pounds), clothes should fit loosely around the midsection (to conceal a full stomach) and more snugly elsewhere (to play up thin limbs).
Styles to avoid: Anything that draws attention to the middle―like high-rise pants, belts, and waist-cinching tops.
The triangle shape is defined as shoulders and torso that are narrower than the hips.
Styles to avoid: Shapeless, oversize sweaters; skinny jeans and pants; and skirts in a flimsy, curve-hugging fabric, like silk.
With an ample chest, a narrow waist, and full (but not wide) hips, this shape, although evenly proportioned, can seem as if it’s all angles. Choose clothes that work and move with your natural curves, not against them.
Styles to avoid: Shapeless or boxy styles, like baby-doll dresses, tunics, and oversize cardigans.
With little definition at the waist, this straight-up-and-down figure is often considered boyish. Opt for styles that fit snugly at your middle but flare out at the bottom (whether it’s a skirt or pants) to create curves.
Styles to avoid: Dresses that are tight all over and anything too flowy or unstructured around the waist, like Empire-waist tops.
