Getting dressed should be fun and easy — no matter your unique shape. That’s why this summer, we’re taking a moment to dive deep into each body type with our Summer Shape guides. This week, it’s all about Column figures. If you think that might be you, take a look at the tips below, then check out some of our favorite Column-flattering styles for work, weekend, and evening.

Do I have a Column shape?

If your bust, waist, and hips are all pretty much the same size, you’re likely a Column.  Your figure is more or less straight up-and-down, and very proportional.

What looks best on Column figures?

  • Try fit-and-flare dresses to add some gentle curves to your shape.
  •  Peplums and belted tops help define your waist.
  • Tank shapes and boyfriend blazers can be flattering with your similar proportions. Or, try a fitted, cropped blazer when you want to define your waist.
  • Wrap dresses and v-necks help add curves where you want them.
  • Maxi dresses also look great — especially if they’re nipped at the waist.

Here are some Summer-ready styles to try:

For Work:


Harbour Dress in Emerald


MBN Amelie Dress

For Weekend:

For Evening:
