We’ve all gone through it, we stock up on the latest fashions only to return them after confirming they look horrendous. But, how could a hot fashion item look terrible on anyone? Easy: some cuts will never be in style for your specific body type. And that’s OK, as long as you find out which shapes flatter you best. Take skinny jeans for example. They’re currently a hot item, but if you have chicken legs and wide hips, skinny’s will always be a major fashion don’t for you. On the other hand, a slight straight leg or a wide leg will work wonders. Get the idea?
Get comfortable with the notion that you are an individual, and understand that most trend reports speak to the masses. Study our shape chart and see which category you fall under. Once you figure that out, engrave it in your fashion memory and hunt for it in our articles. Those items branded with your icon will flatter you best. Remember it’s not what you can’t do, it’s what you can!
