You can scroll through your social feeds and stare at all the stars you want but when push comes to shove, you know for a fact there are just some dress styles you can't pull off! The time has come to stop moping and shop dresses for YOUR body shape! Check our guide to determine you body shape and shop below to enhance your figure the RIGHT way...
1) Apple Shape: Do you carry weight above your hips and have a broad back and shoulders but slender legs? Welcome to the apple shape club! Opt primarily for monochrome shades, empire and v-neck dresses, and cuts that show off your pins like mini dresses or skirts with a thigh split. Apple shaped celebrities include Angelina Jolie, Eva Longoria and Drew Barrymore.
2) Pear Shape: Got a lower half that's bigger than your upper half? Congrats; you've joined the ranks of Kim Kardashian, Eva Mendes and Katherine Heigl in having a pear shaped bod! Emphasise your shoulders by adding volume and show off your midsection with a plunging neckline. Also choose dresses that accentuate your waist.
3) Wedge Shape (Inverted Triangle): With the likes of Naomi Campbell, Renee Zellweger and Demi Moore as your ideal style icons, wedge shaped individuals tend to have a narrow waist and hips with a broader top half. Wear A-line dresses when possible to balance your silhouette and choose styles with higher waists...without spaghetti straps or boat necklines.
4) Rectangle Shape: Do your shoulders, waist and hips have a similar width? You a rectangle shaped! Show off your arms and legs, choose dresses with ruffles, scoop necks and sweetheart uppers. Stars with a rectangle shaped figure include Natalie Portman, Kate Hudson and Camreon Diaz.
