We’re all made in beautifully different shapes and sizes, something that can be both a blessing and a curse when it comes to finding styles that suit you best. To ease the process of updating your Christmas wardrobe we have gathered a few of our classic outfits to complement each body shape. Take a look at the below to determine which of the categories best represent your figure and then shop in confidence knowing you’re choosing outfits that you’ll look glamorous in and feel confident wearing at all your festive occasions.
An Apple Shape is characterised by a rounded shoulder line, fullness around the tummy and shapely legs. When choosing clothing to flatter your figure follow your body-line, avoiding details around the bust, tummy and hips. Our warm printed jersey dress is versatile for occasion or casual wear. Its A-line skirt takes attention away from the tummy and the soft fabric will ensure you avoid unnecessary bulk around the bosom, waist and stomach.
Pear Shapes have a small upper half, with a defined waist but carry weight on the hips and thighs. If this sounds familiar you’re likely fit into this classification. To show-off your chic shape and create visual balance try wearing clothes that make your shoulders look broader. Our elegant lace jersey top with its flattering boat style neckline and floral pattern will attract the eye to your upper half. It is also perfectly matched with our velvet trousers that will bring an extra element of luxury to the ensemble.
Hourglass statures are similar to Pear Shape but with a fuller bust. If you are Hourglass shape you’re graced with fewer styling rules due to your natural visual balance. The one key guidance is not to wear straight shapes as these hide your waist. We have a stunning easy-to-wear, pull-on dress that features a striking floral print and draped knot feature that draws in the waist which will enhance your silhouette.
The Lean Column body shape is defined by the top and bottom halves of the body being the same size with little waist definition. When styling, try to form curves around hips and bust while establishing more of a waist. For a seasonal, warm and comfortable outfit to compliment your figure, our gorgeous Italian knitted serape paired with our merino turtleneck and classic trousers will create a rounded shape and attract focus to the centre of your body, creating the illusion of curves.
An Inverted Triangle body shape is identified by having a smaller bottom half than your top. Because of this the general style rules are to wear detailed and patterned skirts or trousers while keeping your top half clean and uncluttered to make the hips look broader. The combination of our simple collared jersey top and abstract poppy print skirt is perfect for your body shape, as the V-neck style neckline will draw the eye downwards towards the hips and emphasise the gorgeous skirt pattern. The six panels and subtle flare of the skirt will also create the illusion of a defined waist.
Dress for your shape with confidence, knowing that all of our clothes are expertly designed with you in mind. Our garments are guaranteed to give you a confidence boost for the months ahead.
