Body Basics for Every Figure

If I am hesitant to wear something new and different from my usual wardrobes, I would usually ask my friends to assess my looks. If I am not really comfortable with the style, then regardless of their positive opinion, I go on with my taste. But being fashionable, doesn't really mean following the trend. I still say, it is being creative and adding style and elegance to what you wear. More importantly, you have to be confident of what you wear as your face and body movements tell expressively what you feel.


These tips from About.com can also help you.

  • Wear colors that look great on you. Not sure what those are? Grab a trusted friend and head to the mall. Hold up tons of colors next to your face and get feedback from your friend. Hues that compliment most complexions: pink, blue, white (you'll just need to change the intensity of these colors to suit your coloring, i.e. hot pink for darker skins, carnation for fairer, ivory for olive tones, etc.)
  • Nobody looks good in high-waisted, pleated pants with narrow ankle openings, but manufacturers still turn these out in droves. Avoid!
  • Don't worry about being trendy when you look at what suits your figure: concentrate on what flatters, and add up-to-date shoes, handbags and accessories later.
