Knowing your body shape is vital in French Chic.
If you wish to dress well, you need to dress with your body shape in mind.
This is the foundation of great style and effortless elegance.
Style is about aesthetics and balance.
But how can you create a well-balanced silhouette if you don't know what shape your body is?
If you don't know this, you will wear the wrong clothes for your body shape. Your body will likely look unbalanced.
There are five main body shapes: Apple, pear, hourglass, rectangle and inverted triangle.
Which one are you? If you don't know, I can help you find out (Please contact me via email).
In order to dress well for your shape, the first style guidelines to learn are the following:
- Determine your body shape
- The style objectives for your shape
- Which areas of your body to emphasize and which ones to conceal.
- How to attract the eye and detract the eye away from an area
- How to create a well balanced silhouette
Not knowing this means you will choose the wrong clothes for your body. For instance, you could detract the eye from your best area while attracting the eye towards your widest area. You may not even know you're doing this. Why? Because you don't know what you don't know.
So, if you want to appear balanced visually, with no area visually wider or shorter than any other, it is necessary to learn all these rules and guidelines. They are there for a reason, which is to make you well dressed and attractive to the eye.
