Trends that REALLY Flatter your Style!
In real life, playing with shapes, cuts, and proportions is one of those things that can look so, so right, or go so horribly wrong. To save you from suffering such a fate, we've rounded up our favorite trends that show off your best assets.
Try: A Pencil Skirt — Whether you’re pear-shaped or have the physique of a ruler, the pencil skirt can be universally flattering. If you've got a set of svelte calves, be sure to stock up on pencil skirts in all materials, colors, and levels of bling.
Try: Exaggerated Sleeves — Large, beautiful, exaggerated sleeves are here to stay, and they're oftentimes featured on slim-cut jackets or cropped shirts. If you've got a narrow torso, you've got the perfect body shape to balance out all that volume and show off your tiny bod. Remember — keep things streamlined on the bottom. Wear 'em with a pair of skinny pants or a slim-cut skirt.

Try: Peplum — If you’re small on top with killer curves on the bottom, show off that derriere with a peplum dress. The peplum makes your waist look smaller and pops at just the right place; consider it a picture frame for your bum!
Try: Wide-Legged Pants — If you've got some leg to spare, work them into a wide-leg trouser.
Try: A Halter Dress — If you've got swimmer's shoulders, take a cue from Ralph Lauren. Choose something close-fitting or high-necked, which will let your collarbones and upper arms take center stage.
Try: Belted Thick Fabrics — Lots of ladies can't afford to bulk up too much, but if you've got a teeny-tiny waist, you can layer up without getting too boxy. Pair wool skirts and ribbed or cable-knit sweaters with thick leather belts to create shape, and streamline the shape.
Try: A Deep V-Neck — If you have a flatter chest, you can pull off the season's deep V-neckline. This streamlined shape calls for a looser fit on the bottom. Try a flowing maxi skirt or a high-waisted pant with roomy, large legs.
