Figure Fixer: Wrap Dresses

If like many Irish women you tend to be a different size on top than you are on bottom and some dress styles don’t sit properly on your waist then we have got the figure fix for you.

Here are The Style Fairy we are huge believers in the power of wrap dresses. The beauty of the wrap dress style is that you can nip the dress in at the waist to show off your figure to its best. This makes this dress style a super flattering wardrobe classic.

Check out how these fashionistas have been wearing their favourite wrap dress style.

Jean Styles For Your Body Shape

Because we are all unique in our own way no two of us have the same body shape. Understanding our own shape helps us find out what clothes flatter us best.

In order to look your best it is not your size or shape that matters, but the fit of your clothes. That is why this blog aims to help give you get a better understanding of your own body shape and the type of jeans that help accentuate your good features. By doing that you will be able to dress in a way that really suits YOU!

There can be as many as 7 different body shapes which are widely discussed in the styling world but for the purpose of this blog I have focused on the 5 most common body shape categories.

We have also styled looks which feature jean styles that are tailored to suit you – Enjoy 🙂

1. Pear

Shape

  • Full hips or thighs
  • A defined waist
  • Shoulders narrower than your hips
  • A small top half as well as a small bust

Style Tips

  • Aim to balance your top half with your bottom half by making your shoulders look broader
  • Wear prints on top and plain materials on bottom
  • Accentuate your smallest part, your waist
  • Jean Style: Dark bootcut denims are best.

  • Little definition between waist and hips
  • Flat hips and bottom

  • Create an illusion of a defined waist with a belt or some waist detail
  • Jean Style: Boyfriend style, distressed, look, baggy or coloured jeans, details in hip and thigh area e.g. various washes, ripped, embellishments, flared, bootcut and turn ups.
