Period Dressing

If you love vintage or retro inspired fashion, find out which style suits your body spape.

Joan Crawford - Petite
Do ::

Keep it neat and clean. Choose fitted dresses, tops and pants to show off your figure. A shift dress, or cropped jacket
and pair of Capris will always be a good choice.

Stick to knee length skirts as anything longer will make you look shorter and stumpier. The shorter you are, the higher the hem.

Don't ::

Feel that you have to wear sky-high heels to add inches. This will actually emphasis your lack of height. Try on a pair of kitten / medium heel or opt for ballet flats ala Audrey Hepburn.

Wear loose fitting clothes or wide trousers, as you will look like you are swimming in them.

Arden B. Boatneck Tunic - $64.00 at Arden B.


M Missioni Striped Slip Dress - $595.00 at Neiman Marcus


Guess? Cosmo Kayla Crop - $108.00 at Guess?


Twiggy - Boyish

Do ::

Jackets, tops and dresses that are shaped in at the waist will help create instant curves. Try cinching clothes in with a ribbon or wide belt.

Think...volume. Pleated skirts help create the illusion of a fuller figure and draw the eye away from a straight body shape.

Don't ::

Avoid anything loose fitting. Shapeless clothes make you look shapeless.

Wear skin-tight tops because these simply highlight what you don't have.

MCQ Plaid Mini Skirt - $378 at Net-A-Porter


Armani Exchange Rinse Skinny Jeans - $98.00 at Armani Exchange

Fang Polka-Dot Chiffon Tunic - $32.00 at
Baby Phat Strapless Denim Romper - $69.00 at Macys


Marilyn Monroe - Curvy
Do ::

Flaunt what you've got. Nipped in at the waist will flatter your curves.

Opt for tailored styles and stretch fabrics to sculpt your body.

Don't ::

Try to hide your body under baggy clothes. You will appear big and shapeless. You shouls be proud of your curves.

Wear anything too tight or clingy. This just looks cheap and trashy.
