As you know, at WhatSheWears.ie, we have a real penchant for celebrity style. We also love giving fashion tips, especially on how to dress for your body shape.
So this week we’re combining the two, by bringing you a two instalments of how to best dress for your body type based on your celebrity doppelganger.
Remember the game on Facebook where you had to pick a celebrity doppelganger and use it as your profile picture? Well, this goes a step further as we show you a quick reference guide for choosing your own celebrity doppelganger and thus, which clothes suit each body type. Today we’ll start with two body shapes:
Short and Curvy
Think Kelly Osbourne and Scarlett Johansson.
Go for high waisted skirts. A solid coloured high waisted skirt will show off your curves and give you some added height. With shoes, you need all the help you can get, so if you can manage it, opt for shoes that have 3 inch heels or higher.
Steer clear of anything voluminous and tuck in your top or blouse to show off that beautiful hourglass figure.
When it comes to underwear, a corset will pull you in a show off your waist. With accessories, a belt can do this too.
Short and Slim
Look to Nicole Richie, Sienna Miller or Rachel Bilson
If you have this figure, you’re very lucky as you can channel the current mini dress trend, which will be the envy of the other body shapes. Wear your mini dress with flats, otherwise try this look with ankle boots or heels.
The short and slims can also pull off wide leg jeans and trousers well and if properly tailored, these can lenghen your legs. Better still, if you wear wedges under your wide trousers, you’ll create the illusion of having even longer legs.
Skinny belts look great on you (think 2 inch wide or less). Avoid a thick belt which will take up most of your waist, hence making you look shorter.
So who’s YOUR Celebrity Doppelganger or who can you relate to when it comes to style?
