Dressing For Your Body Type

Let's face it, we've all ordered at least one outfit that looks great on the model, but when it arrives, we try it on and it's either too long, too short, or just isn't as flattering as we'd hoped. Knowing how to dress for your body shape is such a key part of shopping consciously online. With this in mind, our stylists have curated a guide to dressing for your body type, whatever it may be, so that you can dress confidently and look/feel your best without ever having to deal with dragging hems or poorly fitting waistbands again...

Petite

If you're 5ft 4 or under, you've probably faced the struggle of everything being too long. But don't worry, we have you covered. Instead of a maxi dress, opt for a midi or mini with a cinched waist like the Camilla or the Gia, that will accentuate your figure without swamping you. If you like a more skimming silhouette, the Solstice is the petite fashion must-have, with its versatile buttons that make it a great option for 'jeans and a nice top' during the day, as well as an elevating minidress for the evening. Finally, high waisted shorts are every petite girl's best friend. The Pavilion shorts are ideal for creating a put-together, figure amplifying look, especially when paired with the Pavilion shirt.

Tall

Whilst being tall has many advantages, it can make finding the perfect outfit a challenge. But have no worries, we're here to match you with pieces that work best for your height. A tall frame is great for pulling off patterns without them being overwhelming, so indulge in the bold motifs of the Caipirinha midi skirt and balance them out with the complimenting graphic tee, or pair with the Fine Line Top in Papaya for the ultimate pop of colour. If you'd prefer a more toned down but still eye-catching print, the Far From halter neck top and midi skirt are a great combo. The Gael dress is the ideal figure skimming piece to really show off a tall girl's silhouette. The good news is that it looks just as great with flat sandals as it does with a heel.

Curvy

 Dressing for a curvy figure doesn't need to be difficult. We have plenty of pieces that will flatter an hourglass silhouette. Striking a balance between fitted and tight is often the first step towards finding an outfit that properly accentuates curves. The Umi top paired with the For The Story jean makes for a comfy smart/casual outfit that does all the right things. For a more dressy option, go for the Meadow Maxi dress with it's elegant leg slit and defining waist belt that will help enhance your feminine frame. However, if you prefer something a little more conservative, the Tuscany dress is another great option - and the ideal wedding guest dress now that that time of year is upon us!

Fuller Bust

Fashion that flatters a fuller bust is just a few clicks away! Show off your décolletage in a silky slip, like The Valinda, which will keep you feeling sexy and secure all summer long. One major blessing of having bigger boobs is that you can be bang on trend with Victorian chic and rock the cottage core dresses and milk maid esq necklines that require a bustier frame, such as the Lunar dress and the Sigrun top. For a bust-friendly look that serves ultimate sophistication, pair the Beau shirt with the Rio Blazer - two great, versatile pieces that can be dressed for work and play.
