Portland Fashion and Style Awards 2013 is an event not to be missed. What to wear? Experts say if you want to look your best pick a dress that flatters and enhances your figure and features. Also, color, texture and accessories can make your red carpet style a big hit or a belly flop miss.
Let's review a list of the best shape and style for your body-shape. Fit and flattering dresses for different body shapes begin with identifying the four main body types.
- Pear is defined by a fuller bottom and smaller top. Best dresses for a pear body shape are attention-getting necklines with A-line skirts.
- Apple has an undefined waist meaning the body is fuller around the waist. So the best dress trims the tummy and creates slimming affect by wearing empire waistline (Waistline under the bust) or sometimes called the baby doll dress style.
- Rectangular is a straight figure with no defined waist or hips sometimes called the boy body figure. Dresses to best compliment the straight body shape are sheath dresses and dresses with an A-line skirt to create curves.
- Hourglass has a well-defined waistline that creates equally balanced bust and hips. Wrap dresses, fit and flare dress styles, and belted waistlines are the most flattering for the hourglass figure.
Remember proper fit and proportion are very important as well as comfort. So what’s all this talk about a red carpet fashion event in Portland?
