Shape Report: Summer 2017 Tips To Find Your Fit

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 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)

Tip: Take peplums for a spin for a more defined waist, and a little flirty flair, perfect for the season. 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)

Tip: Get out of your comfort zone and try a jumpsuit with a tie waist. This plays up your shape and gives you the same effect as a fit and flare or a body con in a new, fresh way. 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)

Tip: Balance out your hips with a top that just flows. A hanky hem floats around your hips for comfort and a balance of proportion. 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)

Tip: Rock a dress that cinches right under bust to create a waist. A v-neck is always a great cut for an oval shape which draws the eye vertically. For more looks perfect for your shape, check out the oval shape collection.
