fashion journey to discover the styles and silhouettes that best complement their individual figure types.

SELECT A STORY BELOW

Lisa recently came to a point in her life where she decided it was time to make herself more of a priority. This inspired her to embark on a healthy lifestyle and exercise regime that has resulted in a sustained 60-pound weight loss. Lisa would like to develop an updated perception of her new body, as well as a clearer understanding of the clothing that will best complement it.

Hi, I’m Lisa!

Our stylist, Krystle Marks, identified Lisa’s body shape as a rectangle. Women with this figure type have a straight, athletic build, with slender shoulders and hips and a similarly sized waist. By incorporating bold prints and palettes, as well as curve-enhancing pieces, Krystle will help Lisa to create an hourglass effect that showcases her slim contours.

“Krystle taught me so much about what to wear to flatter my figure” says Lisa. “I learned that pieces that accentuate my waist give me more of a shape, so I’ve been tucking tops in a lot more and wearing more form-fitting layers.”

Outfit #1: Pencil Me In!

“Because Lisa’s hips are slim, she can pull off wearing colorful, dramatic prints that add curves, like the Smudge Floral Pencil Skirt,” says stylist Krystle Marks. “And the cool sapphire blue of the Placket Tunic, layered over a black cami, mixes beautifully with the warm tones of her complexion.” Tucking the tunic in and pulling the waistband of the skirt slightly higher than Lisa’s natural waistline draws the eye to the narrowest part of her torso. Layered goldtone bracelets on each arm and the quilted-finish Chevron Diamond Tote provide polish. The duo palette of the Two-Tone Slingback picks up the blue of the tunic, while the pointy toe elongates Lisa’s legs. For added interest, a graphic statement necklace centers her shoulders and draws focus to Lisa’s face.

Outfit #2: Pattern Play

Perfect for kicking back or running around, this chic outfits elevates the image of athleisure. Centered around the White Swan Baseball Jacket, the contrasting front-and-back floral-patterned panels and black sleeves draw the eye inward to create the illusion of a curvier waist. “We paired it with a light-colored tee to add dimension,” says stylist Krystle Marks. The ankle-length Bella Control Pull-On Jean slenderizes with a stretchy inner control panel and a touch of spandex. Lisa accessorizes with multi-strand earrings and a matching long necklace that elongates her torso. A pair of comfy Keds, with the look of a bootie, completes the sporty look.

Outfit #3: Chain Reaction

Anchored by the Chain-Link Jacket, this eye-catching outfit brings the attitude while still looking elegant. “I love how the Any Way You Tie It Top has a scarf effect,” says stylist Krystle Marks. “The long edges draw the eye downward to make Lisa look taller.” Because she has narrow hips, the bright-red Ankle-Grazing Slim Pant looks extra flattering on her frame. Goldtone stud earrings echo the chain accents on the jacket. And “the edgy Elise Ankle Strap gives the outfit a very modern feel,” Krystle adds.

Outfit #4: Animal Instinct

Stylist Krystle Marks showcases Lisa’s trim hips with the sleek Animal-Front Ponte Pant. “The black side panels visually slim her legs even more,” says Krystle. The easy-fitting Placket Tunic is worn outside to skim Lisa’s midsection and falls beyond the curvy part of her upper thighs, “which is a universally flattering length, no matter a woman’s figure type,” Krystle notes. Artful floral designs and scalloped edging give the Jade Cutout Pump an updated look. Goldtone hoops and a cuff bracelet harmonize with the hues of the animal print, while a long, multi-strand necklace further enhances the long and lean silhouette.
