How to dress to suit your body shape
When it comes to dressing for our body shapes, it can often feel like an uphill struggle. We’re presented with outdated concepts, trying to fit them in to today’s much more inclusive fashion world. It’s time to look beyond the fruit bowl and opt for a more practical approach to shaping our wardrobes to work for us.
Now more than ever, the fashion industry is embracing the beauty of all body shapes. Everyone’s a little different but discovering your body shape can serve as a great guide or starting point for any new outfit purchase. Your body shape comes down to where you hold (or don’t hold) your curves — then, you can dress to flaunt your shape to its fullest!
Which body shape is your best fit
As previously mentioned, everyone’s body is a little different. The main focus of finding your body shape is to gain a starting point in dressing your best way
We champion AG’s Prima Ankle as one of the most versatile jeans in our offering, and suitable for most body types. The subtle cigarette leg provides a welcomed alternative to a super skinny and the mid-rise is balanced out by a cropped hem which ends at the ankle.
J Brand's Maria has long been our go-to for a high-rise jean to highlight smaller waists and curvier hips. You’ll be spoiled for choice with seasonal washes, from light blues to Photo Ready black. Heels and a tucked-in silk blouse is a fail-safe combination for day-to-night.
The Hoxton Slim is the trend-led, straight leg jean with the flattering high-rise of a Hoxton. This straight-leg jean won’t swamp your frame, so is perfect for highlighting your waist whilst gently skimming, rather than clinging, to the legs. Pair with V-necklines, as these will elongate the body further, giving a hint of cleavage rather than covering up.
Bootcut jeans are beloved thanks to their flattering look on everybody type, elongating your leg. We love AG’s authentic Angel Boot with a subtle flare from the knee and a 34” inseam. Sophisticated washes like the indigo blue Audacious wash are designed for everyday wear when styled with printed blouses. Tuck in blouses to the waistband to create an illusion of curves.
Wide leg jean are the statement making style to get familiar with this season and at Trilogy we are backing Paige's version, the Nellie Culotte. Nellie has a sophisticated high-rise and a relaxed, wide leg which sits neatly above the ankle. We'll be wearing Nellie round the clock, balancing out her wide leg silhouette with neat, cropped jackets on top.
