    Fashion for any shape – how to highlight your best features

    Fashion for any shape – how to highlight your best features

    The problem with fast fashion is that it misses a key point: women are different. Even if two people have similar measurements, it doesn’t mean that exactly the same size of clothes will fit them. But how do we know what fits us best and which items will bring out the best in us?

    Firstly it is very important to know your body shape.

     The Pear body shape

     

    The pear shape (or triangle) is characterized by narrow shoulders and a defined waist. The top half of the body is generally smaller than the part below the waist. Your cleavage is less full, therefore it is important to highlight other areas instead. Try balancing the fuller lower body with putting layers on your top body.

    You can highlight your waistline with fitted styles and choose darker trousers with a straight or flare cut. Opt for A-line skirts and dresses that go beyond your knees and be brave with patterns.

    The Hourglass body shape

    You can call your body shape ‘hourglass’, if your shoulders are almost the same width as your hips, with a defined waist and fuller bottom.

    It is generally easy to dress for this body shape, as you can choose between V-necks, boat necks or round necks. You can pick peplum tops and wrap blouses. When wearing dresses, you have all the freedom in the world. Show off your silhouette and always highlight your waist! Stay away from boxy cuts and oversized items.

     The Apple body shape

     

    This shape is fuller towards the middle section of the body. The tummy, and bust areas are in focus, which is why you need to optically lengthen your torso.

    Tops should be flowy and go below your hipline. Avoid anything too tight or cropped tops. You can cover up with coats, jackets and vests that finish above your knees.

    Wear dresses that are not too fitted and go beyond the thighs. Anything with V necks and boat necks can be ideal for your shape.

    The Athletic body shape

     

    Your figure is similar to a rectangle; your shoulders are the same width as your hips and you have little waist definition.

    As the weight is evenly distributed on your body, your aim is to create that little curviness, optically.

    You can wear halterneck tops, or strapless styles, or opt for ¾ sleeves in darker shades. Choose trench coats or fitted coats to create some waist with belts and buttons. Stay away from oversized jumpers, jackets or tops in general.

    A-line dresses and skirts can also create this hourglass visual, so be brave and choose these styles!

    Below, you can wear skinny jeans or trousers, or even wider ones, with a gathered waist.

     

    If you follow these simple steps, you will easily find what styles suit you best. If you are still unsure, make sure to consult with a stylist first!

    Enemy in the wardrobe speaks for classic style, elegance and comfort. We create garments that will truly bring out the best in you in every situation. But when it comes to iconic style, something that you will be remembered by, where do you get your inspiration?

     

    We have gathered some people with a true sense of style for a daily inspiration.

     

    Audrey Hepburn

     

    The 50s silver screen actress was one of the biggest celebrities of the era. Her slim physique, historic smile and Bambi-eyes have captured the hearts of many people since. One person captured by her innocent beauty, was the French fashion designer: Hubert de Givenchy. The young fashion creative and Audrey Hepburn have shaped the brand together, creating a feminine, elegant, sleek style.

    Audrey Hepburn’s fashion style is based on basic colors (a lot of black and white), statement accessories such as big hats and oversized sunglasses, and slim cut black dresses.

    Jackie Kennedy

     

    The former first lady has become a style icon with her pillbox hats and long white gloves. But Jackie’s style included so much more than this. She dared to wear color and combine different cuts (such as culottes) for an eye-catching look. Her autumn looks included trench coats, headscarves and iconic sunglasses. To create her look, choose bold colours, don’t be afraid to colour-block and always add a feminine touch to masculine outfits.

     

    Princess Diana

     

    The princess of hearts was not only popular for her kind personality but also for her timeless sense of fashion. Despite having a pixie style haircut, Lady Di always managed to stay very feminine. She is remembered as the most rebellious royal in British history and her youthful, fun style represented just that. Unlike other members of the aristocratic family, she dared to wear short skirts, figure-hugging dresses, bare shoulder pieces and lots of colour.

     

    Kate Moss

     

    The supermodel become one of the most successful women in the industry in the 90s. Her skinny figure, not classically feminine look was a rebellion of its own. Her style knows no boundaries and creates a strong message of Kate’s personality. Something that says: I don’t care what you think. She creates style experiments of textures, patterns and colour. Her inner beauty shines trough the masculine pieces she combines for everyday outfits and she is brave enough to wear pieces that are long forgotten.

     

     

    Sarah Jessica Parker

     

    SJP is often a synonym for style, fashion and femininity. Since her iconic role as Carrie Bradshaw in the TV series Sex and the city, Sarah Jessica is an ambassador for fashion. Her look is light, fun, extremely feminine and playful, but not only displaying latest fashion, but also exclusive, unusual and retro elements. The key piece of a true SJP style, are high heels and trendy bags.  

     

    No matter, which fashion icon you most identify with, make sure you always stick to your own true personal style!

    How to find your style?

    How to find your style?

    Nowadays it is crucial not just to keep educating yourself to keep up to date with work, personal life or free time activities but to look the part whatever it is you are doing. Some women think, style equals fashion, that ever changing, speedy cycle that is very difficult to keep up with. We have good news: it is not the same thing.

     

    While fashion is global, is constantly moving and is sometimes hard to follow, style is eternal, it is individual and absolutely unique. However, there is no strict recipe to what ones style actually is.

     

    Brings out the best in you

     

    Style is like your magic wand, when it is right, it will bring out the best in you in every situation. Your style will emphasize your positives and conceal areas you do not necessarily want to show.

    Pinterest

     

    Speaks for you

     

    Your personal style will tell a story about you before you even introduce yourself. It will show if you are a casual or a more formal type of person, colours may show if you are playful or classic, maybe even more shy or closed personality. Lack of accessories will tell you are more a minimalistic type, whereas bright jewellery for example will make your passion shine through.

    Makes you feel confident

     

    You know you have found your perfect style when each and every piece will make you feel confident, more ‘yourself’. If you are now sure about something you are wearing, it will definitely be reflected on your (lack of) confidence.

     Pinterest

    Comforts you

     

    Fashion is not always comfortable. However, if a dress tucks in somewhere, if the shoes cut into your toes, or if you have to keep pulling your shirt to cover your stomach, you have definitely not chosen the right outfit and therefore you are not in synch with your style. Make sure, the materials your are wearing, feel good against your skin, that the cut is flattering and comfy and you can still move.

     Pinterest

    To find your style, you might have to look into the topic more, try different outfits and make notes at the end of the day to remember, how it made you feel. Or you can always seek help and find out more about your style trough the eyes of others.

    Habits and strategies of the world's most successful female leaders

    Habits and strategies of the world's most successful female leaders

    ‘The future is female’ says a famous slogan of our days, in a world, where women fight for the rights and get more and more accepted in every aspect of life.

    Of course we are not saying that men are less important, but the tendency of women gaining power is also changing our lifestyle in major ways.

    So if you want to join the powerful female leaders or at least learn from them, here is the perfect opportunity. We have collected some of the things influential women do in order to stay respected.

    Of course there is no doubt how important outlooks are. ‘Dress the part’ is a motto every woman should have written on her wardrobe. In a professional environment always look smart, feminine and self-confident. Choose your clothing wisely, according to your physical qualities. You cannot go wrong with a black dress, a navy skirt and a white blouse.

     

    The way you start your day is a crucial point when it comes to the evaluation of quality. Start early and with a positive mindset. Don’t rush. Try to do some kind of simple exercise, or even better, meditation before you even get ready. Eat enough and eat healthy. See the morning routine as a gift to yourself, as an hour (or more) of me-time.

     

    Believe in karma, because it always works. So act kind and helping towards others. Co-workers, family members and even staff at your local grocery store. You will see magic instantly unfolding itself in front of your eyes.

    Be active. And not just physically, (which is of course equally important) but also mentally.  Be a person, who makes the first step.  Approach new people with confidence, be open to others, feel curious. Networking is something we cannot live without in our personal lives or even in our careers. Don’t be lazy, if you have an idea, act and see if it works, you cannot loose anything.

     

    Listen and speak up. It is very important that you say what is on your mind but are also open to issues of others. By doing so you will be more appreciated by others and will also know about every issue that might go on behind the scenes.

     

    Always be true to yourself and never try to be anyone else, firstly because it is impossible and secondly because comparing yourself to others creates unnecessary stress. Insecurities are normal, the question is only how you handle them. So next time you see someone, who is better looking, richer, funnier or simply more successful than you, feel grateful for them and see them as your own personal teacher.

     

    Stay flexible. Of course you can (and should) make plans for the near and far future but also give a little space for the unpredictable. If you are open to change and learn to let go easily, you will find that it reduces anxiety and can take you on completely new paths.
