Body Type: Column
(bust, waist, hips are a similar size)

Karen Kane Lightweight Tweed Open Front Jacket

Tip: Consider a boyfriend blazer – flattering on your up and down proportions. This is a streamlined and chic choice. 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)

REBEL WILSON x ANGELS Winter Bloom Pleated Faux Wrap Dress

Tip: While many silhouettes work nicely on people with this figure, dresses that tie at the waist, have diagonal ruching, or draped details all draw the eye to the smallest part of you — creating a universally flattering shape. 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)

Liz Claiborne Kimono Sleeve Burgundy Velour Top

Tip: To balance out your shape, try a top with a bit of volume – you can pull off a boxy top! On you, it’s chic and timeless. 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)

Effie’s Heart Dauphine Dress In Herringbone

Tip: Items with tucks, pleating, or details right under the bust help flaunt the smallest part of your torso. 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)

Ellerman Three-Quarter Sleeve Peplum Top in Black

Tip: Peplum tops can add fullness to narrow hips and create the illusion of hourglass curves. For more looks perfect for your shape, check out the inverted triangle collection.

Body Type: Petite
(5’4″ and under)

Melissa McCarthy Seven7 Skinny Jean In Sasha

Tip: Try a pant marked as an “ankle jean” to play with your proportion. Being petite, the length will likely fall like a full-length pant, hitting you just at the right place. For more looks perfect for your shape, check out the short styles collection.

Body Type: Tall
(5’9″ and taller)

Universal Standard Augusta Geneva Dress in Aubergine

Tip: Try a longline dress with an asymmetrical hem. Playing with length is what you were made for! For more looks perfect for your shape, check out the tall styles collection.
