Five Body Types, Five Little Black Dresses

Pear Shape -  Try wearing a halter dress, it will give the illusion of balance between your shoulders and hips.

Banana Republic - $198.00

Rectangle - Look for a dress that creates an artificial waist. The V-neck also breaks up your naturally wide torso.

Banana Republic - on sale $79.99

Hourglass-  This is one of the easiest body types to dress.  Look for something that accentuates your curves.
Suzi Chin Maggy Boutique Stretch Satin Sheath Dress
Nordstroms $118.00
Inverted Triangle- This body type has larger shoulders and narrower hips.  Look for an a-line shirt.
Follow-My-Lead Dress
Anthropologie $158.00

Apple- Like the Rectangle body type, the apple needs a waist defined for it.  Try something that gathers right at the waist like this dress from Macys.

Jones New York Dress, Faux Wrap Draped Matte Jersey
Macys $118.00
