The thought of breaking out skin-baring hot-weather looks can trigger major anxiety if you aren’t sure how to dress for your shape. But choosing well-fitting summer pieces is paramount for cutting a sleek, stylish figure at the office, on a date or even hanging out on the weekend. To put you at ease, we’ve assembled six styling tips for every body type, all of them simple to pull off this season for your most flattering look yet.
Flattering Summer Style
Add volume to a modest bustline with ruffled detail in a vibrant stripe, pattern or color.
Team high-wasted trousers with nude sandals for a monochromatic illusion that elongates.
A Full Mid-Section
Instead of a cinched waist, a flared silhouette draws attention away from the tummy. An off-the-shoulder A-line frock is flirty in balmy temps.
Highlight your décolleté instead with a gorgeous off-the-shoulder silhouette—bonus points for a cascading sleeve.
A tiered ruffle skirt adds oompf to a less-than-bodacious backside.
Flatter shapely legs with flared jeans in summery white.
