It's 6:35 am, the sun is beginning to peek through the window. Your hair and makeup are done but, you’re still not dressed and you only have twenty minutes to get out the door. While standing in your closet, staring at your clothing, you say “What should I wear? I need help. I don't have enough clothes”. If only you could have a guide to tell you how to shop, dress for your body type and slay every day with fashion.

FIrst you need to figure out what your body shape is. Here below is a picture to guide you.
You’ve taken your next step toward a better wardrobe, you know what you're working with . The above picture is also, intended to show what you would like to accentuate, hide, and/or balance.
Is your body shape the inverted triangle? Long jackets that fall below your waist should be your go to. Straight leg pants are a must. Neutral color tops are a great way to camouflage broad shoulders. Colorful and printed pants help to bring attention to your lower body creating a balance for the eye...
Maybe you're the lean column and rectangle shape. You want to look for Jackets that cinch is the smallest part of your waits. Prints are a great way to compliment your figure and bring attention to any area of your body that has curve.
Is your body shape apple? Belted blazers and wrap style jackets. Stay away from skinny pants. V-neck blazers are a great way to give shape on the top half of your body. Pants with detailing around your waist are a good way to create shape for your waist.
If you have a pear shape body invest in high waist pants. Wear jackets with wider arms and larger collars to draw attention to your small upper body frame and create a balance with your clothing. Stay away from longer jackets.
If you have a near hour glass or hourglass shape your options are open. The key is showing off your curves because you have nothing you want to hide and nothing to enhance. I encourage prints and bright colors to show off your figure.
I hope this helps when you're going through your morning routine. Think of what you learned about your shape, how to dress for it, and go shopping for something new. You're equipped to walk the runway at work. Prepare yourself for the extra attention.. Its coming!! Talk to you ladies soon. Comment below to let me know if this was helpful.
