Looking Good!Next week we’ll have a LuLaRoe representative at our June 8 class. If you’re not familiar with the LuLaRoe concept, now is a fun time to learn more! They bring the shopping to you at events like ours, or in your home. Their clothes are stylish and affordable - come take a peek!
The representative will certainly be help you with your selections, but it doesn’t hurt to have the 411 on what styles flatter your body type. Here are some tips for some of the more common issues we face.
First, a wrap dress works for every body type and can be dressed up as much or as little as you like with jewelry, shoes and a jacket or wrap - get one! Second, for everyone and every outfit, undergarments that fit are a must!
CURVES – don’t hide them, highlight them!
If you have an HOURGLASS figure, accentuate your waist. Use belts; try a crop top or jacket, or something that’s nipped in at the waist; wear more fitted clothing and avoid boxy outfits; go with lighter fabrics; and avoid to many details on your tops or at your hips.
If you have more of an “APPLE” shape and carry weight around your waist, wear longer tops that come below the widest part of your stomach; go with V-necks and wear jewelry or embellishment at your neck and bust line; layer your tops; avoid clingy or too stiff fabrics and find clothing that drapes smoothly; and ruching is your friend!
If you are SMALL BUSTED, take advantage! Wear strapless and off the shoulder tops; wear scarves as tops; go backless; try bolero jackets or shrugs that end just below the bust line; add fullness with textures or bold colors across the chest; look for empire waists on tops and dresses; wear fitted (even snug) tops; or add details at the neckline (e.g., ruffles, a cowl, asymmetric lines).
If you are on the more PETITE side (read: short!), color is fine, but go monochrome with the overall outfit; slim, fitted dresses add length; wear vertical stripes on pants and skirts; avoid over-accessorizing; go with straight or wide-legged pants (versus capris or shorter length trousers); favor higher waists; wear longer, straight jackets and sweaters; avoid shirts that are too long; and make sure it fits (this is even more important for shorter woman to avoid being overwhelmed by their clothing!). Of course, heels work, too…but only if you want to!
We’re all beautiful, and if a flowy new top makes you feel even better, then go for it!
