Hour-glass – Dressing for Your Shape

By August 11, 2011 No Comments

The Hourglass: The curvaceous hourglass. This shape is the most proportionate shape. This shape is shapely all over. Women with this shape have hips and shoulders in the same proportion along with a defined waist. With with this shape, almost ALL styles look great on you, because you are so proportioned. You can wear any top and look great. Regarding any top, the goal would be to show off your slim waist.

Anything that is belted is great for you. Also V-necks are great along with scooped necks. This draws the eye to your breast. You also want to look for jeans that are flared, or have a wide leg, this will balance out your hips. Mid-rise jeans look great on you. Along with low rise jeans. This helps define you tiny waist.

I hope this gives you some sense of direction when shopping for your shape. My golden rule is, if you feel good you look good. It all truly comes from within, so love yourself and your shape. Let your light shine, you never know who’s looking at you, so smile! Love your life, your body and yourself.


I am all about women knowing who they are, finding their own individual style, and not spending a lot of money doing so.  I believe in creating looks that are timeless yet practical and consistent with your own personality. I live to shop the clearance racks! I truly believe It’s not what you wear but how you wear it. Not one of us were created to look the same, so what looks good on one woman might not look good on another. So when shopping for yourself, it is crucial to know what looks good on you. Knowing what works on your shape can make the difference from an ordinary outfit to ex-ordinary. I think we should go through life giving it all we have and I apply this ideology when dressing myself. I know from my own experience that when having a not so good day I know that if I put on a nice dress or fun sassy top, I can guarantee that what ever sour mood I might have felt before starts to slip away when I slip into the clothes. First impressions are lasting so why not always try to look your best you never know who you might meet! These are all approaches I take when building my wardrobe, or getting dressed on a daily basis. As far as about me as a person to share some insight with you. I clearly LOVE clothes. I but what I love more than the clothes themselves is how I feel when wearing certain outfits. I also LOVE to style for other people. I get such an amazing feeling when I have helped someone select an outfit that they feel good in. Or sometimes what is better than that for me is dressing someone in something they would never choose for their self and they end up loving it. Although I do love clothes I do not believe in spending a lot of money to look and feel good. I get a thrill out shopping clearance. The price tag does not define the worth of an item to me. What makes it worth it for me is how it makes me feel and knowing that I paid half the cost and still look GREAT!
