Wedding Outfits for all Body Shapes.

As discussed in the previous post, it is safe to say that unless you are an immediate part of a wedding, shopping for an outfit is a nightmare. So, I thought, as a stylist, it would be a good idea to put together a brief collection of which types of outfit will suit which type of body shape. I want to make it so that there are both dressy and casual ideas as it is such a broad occasion to dress for, and outfits that are within a reasonable budget for the majority (i.e High Street). Each post will focus on one body shape and the outfits I feel would flatter your figure and show off your best features.

Don’t panic though if you think you do not fall perfectly in to one of these body shapes – everyone is different. This, for me, is where the real beauty of fashion comes in. Yes, there is a problem with the industry putting too much emphasis on waifs but the High Street does have a variety of styles once you know what your body shape is an how to dress it. I am not an exact pear shape, but I know that if I use it as a guideline when shopping, I will find something that suits me and then I can start to look at slightly different shapes and styles and see if they work too.

The Main Body Shapes:



(it’s not all fruit I promise)



Slim Athletic

Remember these are the main types but not all – everyone is different so use these briefs as ideas only not religiously and make sure you feel comfortable and confident in what you wear.
