Figure out your figure!
When you dress for your body type, you accentuate the positive and camouflage the not so positive parts.
Knowing your basic body type is so helpful in dressing your best! My personal goals are to coordinate a look that is modest yet flattering to my body type, appropriate to the situation and one which projects my inside attitude to my outside apparel!
My body type is the "X" or hourglass. Sounds good but I am also a petite X. That doesn't mean I am tiny. It means I am under 5'4". So I have my challenges. In fact every body has her own challenges. Your body type stays the same regardless of your weight. But when I am at a good weight for my height, the whole figuring out what to wear becomes more of a non-issue. I know what looks good on me from neckline to style of shoe.
If you are not sure of your body type, take this quiz. While I like to use the letters of the word "HOAX" to identify body types, this quiz uses the following: ruler/rectangle, spoon, cone/triangle and hourglass.
Last year I submitted an article to Proverbs 31 Ministries. It was published online for August! Check it out here.
To celebrate The Summer of My Blueberry Cobbler being published by P31, I'll be posting ideas to help you dress the figure you have on the way to the one you want!
I'll share get healthy tips as well as some "dress your best" ideas! It'll be fun and fashionable all at the same time!
