Finding the perfect spring dress for different body types
Prints and florals can be daunting because we all have different body types and we don’t know what dress style will suit our figures. It’s a simple solution, play to the strengths of your features. Let’s break down the body types and what style of dresses will be most suited for you.
If you are an Apple body type then invest in a swing flowy dress from Donna Claire that will create a flattering effect to your midsection. Choose a dress style where the prints are focused more on the top of the dress or a style with a sprinkle of designs all over.
Busty body types, keep an eye out for a style that has heart shaped neckline when you shop at Foschini, a neat trick is also to look for dresses with adjustable belts – it’s the perfect way to cater to your figure! Maintain the balance of your figure with bold prints.
It’s not geometry, it’s fashion!
Triangle body types need a fit and flare styled dress to work the best for your figure, find a top fitted dress that eventually flares out. Avoid loud prints, instead, opt for subtle prints and florals from Forever New.
Top heavy narrowing down to a thin frame – your body type would be an inverted triangle. Polka dots and stripes are right. A-line dresses from Poetry with a slight flare are perfect to balance the broad shoulders.
The rectangular or more commonly known as the athletic type due to the straight shoulders and hips are best suited for dresses that have a draping effect with a pinched midsection to assist with the curves. Bright colours and prints are for you, find them at Factorie.
