THIS WEEK'S LOOKS...


LOOK #1 

STYLIST NOTES:

A military take on an everyday casual look that goes right into happy hour without a fashion flinch. 

What body type should go for this look? Hourglass and Pear body types can pull this off. Hourglasses, the jacket on top combined with the boot-cut jean on the bottom, will keep proportions in-line. Pears, the added emphasis on the top half of this equation will balance out your hips and keep the focus right where you want it.

*THIS LOOK ALSO WORKS FOR RECTANGLES.

What body type should avoid this one? Apples, the print on the jacket combined with the layer of the statement necklace brings too much attention to your top half. Opt out of this look for now...

LOOK #2 

STYLIST NOTES:

Clean, classic, polished and perfect to take you into Spring. Layer a black blazer over the dress to stay warm as we transition into warmer temps.

What body type should go for this look? Hourglasses, the cinching at the waist will emphasize your naturally proportionate, naturally gorgeous shape. Apples, the clean crew-neck is perfect for you. Pears, you can also pull this one off and Rectangles, you're in the clear as well. The bottom line: it's universal.

What body type should avoid this one? None. Hence the whole 'universal' description above.

LOOK #3 

STYLIST NOTES:

A fresh take on an everyday dress that will take you into Spring. Go with a flat sandal in a pop color for a more resort-centric look or keep the neutral heel, elongate, and add some height.

What body type should go for this look? Rectangles, you can pull off the strong stripes in this one. Cinch the waist with a woven belt in the same brown hue as the sandal or leave it alone, you've got options.

*THIS LOOK ALSO WORKS FOR HOURGLASSES IF YOU KEEP THE BELT AS AN OPTION.

What body type should avoid this one? Pears and Apples, the stripes are going to throw your proportions off balance. Opt for a solid color instead to make this work. Pears, throw a statement neckline into the mix and you're set.

LOOK #4 

STYLIST NOTES:

Go big blue! This is the kind of dress that brings major drama as you walk down the street, yet manages to keep things lightweight and playful at the same time. It's, just, fun. Period.

What body type should go for this look? Rectangles, this dress is going to cinch and flow right where you need it to. Pears, you can also make this look work for you. Add in a long lariat necklace to bring more attention to your neckline.

*THIS LOOK ALSO WORKS FOR HOURGLASSES AND RECTANGLES.

What body type should avoid this one? Fuller-busted hourglass body types, the billowing fabric at the torso may make you look larger than you are. Apples, the deep-v is a plus, but all of those strappy details are going to bring too much focus where you don't want it. Opt for something a bit simpler and jazz things up along the hem instead.
