On a Boat: Swimsuits and cotton sweaters go hand in hand! You’ll need some layering pieces to show off when the sun goes down on that yacht…a cover-up is a must against the ocean breeze.

Dressing For Your Body Type

We all wish that we were built like runway models, just because we aren’t doesn’t mean that we have to skip out on the latest fashion trends either. The trick to pulling off similar looks from the runways and wearing them in reality is knowing your body type and what is the most figure flattering for you. What many of us forget is that clothes and accessories, if worn properly, can be used to hide flaws as well as accentuate our best features! Below are our suggestions on what to wear to best flatter your figure.

boohoo shape sizes

Pear Shape

You are a pear shape if you have a significantly narrower chest and waist measurements than your hips. Since you are lucky enough to have a defined chest and waist, you’ll want to accentuate your upper body but you’ll also want to balance out your lower half as well.

Try Wearing:

Straight leg, boot cut, and low rise jeans

A-line skirts and dresses that cinch in at the waist

Hourglass Shape

You are an hourglass if you have the same or similar chest and hip measurements and a significantly smaller waist. You are balanced on top and bottom! Our advise would be to become friends with your tailor because you will want to fit your clothing perfectly to your curvy shape.

Apple Shape

You are an apple if you have a broader chest than your waist and hips. Your goal is to try and add volume to your lower half while still accentuating how skinny and defined your legs are.

Try Wearing:

Wide leg and flare jeans

A-line skirts and dresses, or peplum skirts and dresses

Broad strapped shirts and V-necks

Athletic Shape

You are a rectangle if you are thin and have the same similar measurements in your chest, waist, and hips. You’ll want to add more definition to your waist.

Try Wearing:

Slim fit clothing i.e. skinny jeans, pencil skirts, etc…

Scoop neck and sweetheart tops

Belted: dresses, skirts, tops

Invest in a good push-up bra

Petite Shape

If you are 5′ 4″  or under by the fashion industry’s guidelines you are considered petite. The goal of dressing as a petite isn’t to necessarily create the illusion that you are a tall person. Instead, it’s about finding clothes that work well with your natural figure.

Try Wearing:

Monochrome outfits or outfits with few colour variations

Simple shift dresses

High waisted skirts and pants

V -neck tops

Tall Shape

First thing’s first, embrace your height! You can pull off any outfit with the right confidence and posture.

Try Wearing:

A Belt, to give your body balance

A jumpsuit

Skinny and cigarette jeans

Large statement accessories

Women come in all different shapes and sizes but getting dressed is a whole lot easier when you know what pieces work best for your shape. We hope this little bit of information helps when selecting fashions in the future. Remember, the most important thing is self love and to maintain a happy and healthy attitude, plus your Intrigue stylists are only a car ride or phone call away. Happy Summer!

The Best Summer Dresses for Every Body Type

Once the temps start rising, dresses are ideal. They’re pretty, they’re way cooler than pants and they require very little thought, since there’s no top-to-bottom matching required. But finding one that best complements your particular frame is a tiny bit tricky. Here’s how to choose the style that flatters your body the most.

IF YOU’RE PEAR-SHAPED…TRY A FULL-SKIRTED DRESS

Two things you want to do here: highlight your best assets while still feeling breezy and carefree. But if you have heavier hips, a lot of straight-cut summer dresses are likely your worst nightmare. Instead, opt for a dress with some structure–specifically a fitted bodice, a nipped waist and a flared skirt.

IF YOU’RE APPLE-SHAPED…TRY A TUNIC DRESS

Well, isn’t this the summer dress of our dreams? Look for something that drapes your figure without hugging your midsection too closely, but don’t settle for just a shapeless sack dress. Try to find one that shows off you legs!

IF YOU’RE BOYISH…TRY A BELTED SHIRTDRESS

If you’re looking to add curves to a straighter shape, opt for something that can be easily accessorized to define your waist. The perfect piece: a crisp shirtdress that you can cinch with a thin belt. It creates the illusion of an hourglass.

IF YOU’RE PETITE…TRY A MINI SHIFT DRESS

The key to flattering a slight figure is not drowning it in fabric. Choose a dress with a shorter hemline that will give the illusion of much longer legs. But since it’s short, be sure to steer clear of anything super tight, lest you want to look like you’re heading to the club circa 2002. A structured mod shift should do.

5 Tips for Looking Great in Shorts at Any Age

With summer on the horizon…we hope, realistically we know that certain pieces of clothing at a certain age, require a more delicate touch…we’re talking about shorts. As you prep for the summer, keep these cardinal rules in mind.

DO: Choose an appropriate length. Any inseam less than three inches and you’re tip toeing a fine line.

924246d20e5789b3d72ef63a6412c8c8

DON’T: Go overboard and resign yourself to knee-length Bermudas. There are plenty of three- and four-inch options out there to keep you in the ladylike zone. Cuffed shorts can even be unrolled for an added inch.

1d1f01c01a0c5beeca888baec4248f8d

DO: Opt for a size larger than you think you might wear. This is not the time nor the place for intense curve-hugging. You want a loose fit that sits comfortably on your hips–both for style and chaffing reasons.

DON’T: Get stuck in a denim rut. Flowy fabrics like silk, rayon and linen are actually the most flattering in shorts form.

DO: Wear them confidently. Any nervous tugging will just draw even more attention to your hip region. Make sure your fit is on point from the start, and then remember that it’s not the dead of winter. Your legs are bare! Enjoy it.

The Only Things You Need to Pack for Memorial Day Weekend

Instead of piling in your usual rotation of denim cutoffs, opt for a  comfy cotton drawstring pair of shorts.

Own the transitional weather with a pair of not-short/not-long denim cropped jeans. They’re more polished than cut-offs, but still look good with all of your tank tops and bathing suits.

Cover up? Check. Dress for family dinner? Check.
