Get Ready For Fall | Boyish Shapes

As you all now, I started a series in which I give tips on getting ready for fall for all body shapes. The previous post I did was on Curvy (hourglass) shapes so this post is going to be about Boyish body shapes. As stated in first post, these are just some tips on what to start looking for and thinking about as clothing is available for the Fall.

Some celebrities that you can look to as a "guide" include: Charlize Theron, Gwen Stefani and Eva Longoria.

The main tip that I can give to you boyish shaped darlings is this: create curves with smart and super trendy design details such as peplum hems, color-blocking, drapes and much more.

For Dress
  • Try dresses with waist and side panels to give the illusion of an hourglass figure.
  • Dress with an a-line skirt and pleats adds to your hips.
  • Bodycon dresses will look amazing and really show the slight curves you have by building "more" curves.
  • Dresses that cinch your middle helps to carve out a waist
  • avoid basic lines in dresses because they widen your hips.
  • avoid high necklines because they emphasize your "recetangular" frame.
  • empire waist dresses enhance your bust

For Bottoms

  • Details such as lines in diagonals add curves
  • skinny jeans with a higher rise flatter slim hips
  • highwaisted bottoms that cinch your waist add curves
Other tips include:
  • create the appearance of a slimmer midsection  with contrasting colors.
  • boost your hips, thighs and bottom with peplums, pleating, draping and contrast piping. 
  • enhance your top half with ruffles, darts and interesting textures
  • you can pull off shorter hemlines and daring necklines without looking overly sexy.
  • EMBRACE YOUR FIGURE
Hope these tips helped you ladies. I'm a part of the petite boyish body shape and I have personally used these tips to help give me a bit more curves -- they really do work.
