We know style only goes so far, and fit is what takes your outfit the rest of the way! For this reason, we created The Shape Report to help find the looks that flatter your specific shape. We combined the hottest looks for any holiday party this season, with tried-and-true fit tips to help you closet smartly. Read on for tips you might find helpful, but remember, there are no fashion rules, and we encourage you to find the things that make you feel your best!

Body Type: Column
(bust, waist, hips are a similar size) City Chic Maxi In Dark Moody Florals

Tip: Play into your up and down silhouette, with a long line maxi. One with a drawstring waist will nip in at the waist for a little shape. For more looks perfect for your shape, check out the column shape collection.

Body Type: Hourglass
(Bust and hips are similar in size, with a defined waist)

Unique Vintage Sophia Dress In Rose Pink

Tip: Let your shape shine with a simple, clean bodycon. A little flirty detail like a ruffle at the neckline and let your hourglass shape do it’s thing. For more looks perfect for your shape, check out the hourglass shape collection.

Body Type: Triangle
(Bust is narrower than hips, with a defined waist)
Karen Kane Scallop Lace Palazzo Jumpsuit

Tip: Try a look with the print on top, to draw the eye upwards to balance your shape. For more looks perfect for your shape, check out the triangle shape collection.

Body Type: Oval
(Bust and hips are a similar size with a full waist)
Sangria Floral Applique Fit And Flare Dress

Tip: We all know a fit & flare is universally flattering, but adding an extra detail right at the smallest part of you, will create a great waist on the oval shape. For more looks perfect for your shape, check out the oval shape collection.

Body Type: Inverted Triangle
(Bust is fuller than hips, with a defined waist)
SL Fashion Fit & Flare Dress With Keyhole Detail

Tip: To create balance in your shape, try a dress with a voluminous skirt and a large scale print the bottom. For more looks perfect for your shape, check out the inverted triangle collection.

Body Type: Petite
(5’4″ and under)
London Times Ruffle Front Shift Dress In Black

Tip: Try a little black dress… emphasis on “little”! A mini dress will work great with your proportions. Try one with a detail that creates a long line down your front to draw the eye up and down, like the ruffle on this shift. For more looks perfect for your shape, check out the short styles collection.

Body Type: Tall
(5’9″ and taller)
Soprano Navy Flounce Wrap Dress

Tip: Calf length is super chic on a taller stature, who has room to play with proportions. A high-low ruffle allows you to show a little leg while keeping your lines long and flirty. For more looks perfect for your shape, check out the tall styles collection.
