Body Type: Column
(bust, waist, hips are a similar size)
Tip: Wrap dresses and V-necks add a touch of curves to your up-and-down silhouette. This indulgent velvet feels as festive as it is luxe.
Body Type: Hourglass
(Bust and hips are similar in size, with a defined waist)
Tip: The body con shape works well for this body type as it follows the lines your body naturally has. These satin details go even further to enhance your natural shape.
Body Type: Triangle
(Bust is narrower than hips, with a defined waist)
Tip: Skater skirts float away from the body, balancing your lower half. The velvet detail will make your eyes dance.
Body Type: Oval
(Bust and hips are a similar size with a full waist)
Tip: Choose styles that add emphasis to the waist. Items with details right under the bust help flaunt the smallest part of your torso. This bell-sleeve dress is perfect for work but also for a festive family dinner.
Body Type: Inverted Triangle
(Bust is fuller than hips, with a defined waist)
Tip: Try a straight-cut shift that flows naturally from the shoulders creating a long line. This lace number is a great choice for work drinks or a family dinner during the holiday season.
Body Type: Petite
(5’4″ and under)
Tip: Paneling and contrast details create the illusion of a lengthened torso. This dress is perfect for desk to dinner during the cool weather months.
Body Type: Tall
(5’9″ and taller)
Tip: A longline cardigan or vest is an excellent style for a longer torso, which won’t be overwhelmed by its length.
