How to Dress Your Hourglass Body Type
Be sure to check out the pics on my Pinterest page for even more ideas to copy.
NOTE: The pictures below are examples to copy by “shopping your closet”. If you do decide to purchase something, I recommend shopping at your local thrift store, Goodwill, or consignment shops for deals on high-quality items.
For the Hourglass Body Type, here are some general guidelines. (For specifics, please check out the Style Academy.)
-well fitted clothing that follows your natural body lines (NOT tight!)
-define the waist
-bring attention to your shoulders and face
In the examples below, the “pure” (extreme) versions of the different Clothing/Dressing Style Personalities are shown, but not explained. Read the Blog post about it here.
Also, the links to the Polyvore sets are below each picture. Links within the explanations go to ‘less expensive’ options. Full disclosure: most are affiliate links — which means I make a few pennies if you click on them. So, thanks for clicking!!!
First, a Classic personality which prefers a smart, neat and tidy look. Classics like to play it safe. They don’t necessarily follow fashion. They like to keep things simple and structured. They enjoy, and invest in, high quality items. The Classic look will be symmetrical with even hems — nothing edged, fringed, or scalloped.
The edgy or rebellious style dresser doesn’t want to be boxed in, they don’t want to be like everyone else. They’re unconventional, left-of center, a rebellious Rocker chic. Anything with studs, or torn or has zippers, even the shock of wearing something with a stark personality contrast.
