Figure Flattering – Style Tips for Dressing Any Body Type!

When it comes to looking good it doesn’t matter what size you are as long as you know how to flatter your figure. We all have those areas on our body that we would prefer to camouflage but what you will learn here is that there is a right way, and a wrong way to go about it. If you know what styles, shapes, colors, and fabrics flatter your figure you can avoid common fashion mistakes, save money, and gain that put-together appearance that we are all after.

What Makes Someone Attractive?

In general people look for symmetry when judging attractiveness. That said, for women the “Hourglass” figure is most often considered to be ideal because it is so well balanced. Unfortunately, most of us don’t posses this ideal form. Luckily, symmetry is something that can be easily achieved with some strategic dressing! Whether your body is extra curvy, boyish, top-heavy, or pear-shaped you can use the following tips and tricks for minimizing your flaws and accentuating your assets!

To get started you must first decide what body-shape category you fall into, and define what that means. Below we have illustrated the four basic body shape categories. Review all of the diagrams below and click on over to the Figure Flattering Guide to learn more about strategically dressing to flatter your figure.

Color Analysis: Learn How to Determine Your Perfect Colors

Color Analysis Guide

Have you ever noticed how certain colors tend to light up your face, while others seem to make you look dull and tired? Wouldn’t it be nice to know which colors look best on you, and which ones to avoid? Well a simple Color Analysis quiz can help you figure out just that! By limiting your wardrobe color choices to colors that best compliment you, you will find it easier to coordinate clothing and accessories, and in turn save both time and money.

What is “Color Analysis”?.

Color Analysis, also called “Skin Tone Color Matching” or “Color Seasons”, is the process of determining the colors that best suit an individuals natural coloring. There are several ways of analyzing personal coloring. The most well-known is “seasonal” color analysis, which places individual coloring into four general categories: Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.

According to a British study, there is evidence that suggests that the colors worn by a person can affect how they are perceived by others. For example: red and pink are thought to signal sexual attractiveness, particularly when worn by women, while dark colors like black or navy may convey the impression of authority – in turn making the wearer seem less approachable. The theories of color analysis also teach that certain colors are capable of emphasizing or, conversely, de-emphasizing an individuals attractiveness to others. Unflattering colors may make a person look pale, for instance, or draw attention to such “flaws” as wrinkles or uneven skin tone. Flattering colors are thought to have the opposite effect.

To determine which “Season” you fall into checkout the complete Color Analysis Guide on, take the quiz and view your celebrity match!
