dressing for your figure

One of the great things about fashion is that it comes in all shapes and sizes.  Whether you’re petite, tall, or somewhere in between there is a style that looks best on you.  Two of my friends were nice enough to help me out with this shoot.  When dressing for your type try to keep in mind that you want to accentuate your best features.  For a petite frame like Courtney (5ft 2) it’s important to make sure that you wear  fitted clothing that will sinch in at the waist and cuts well above the knee, or if you’re wearing pants fits nicely over your shoes.  By doing this you will elongate your figure.  And of course, wear heels whenever possible!

Petite

Tall

Being tall has many benefits, but can still present a challenge when it comes to dressing. The tall person encounters less difficulty then the petite, but difficulty nonetheless. One common difficulty is length, dresses and pants tend to fall short.  Tonya is wearing a great daytime halter dress that  hits right above the knee.  By adding a belt at the waist she adds shape to her frame.
