How to Dress for Your Body Type: The Lipstick

Do you feel you look too straight up and down, and want to add a few more curves? Think you have no defined waistline and want to boost to your bustline? Jacqui Stafford, celebrity style expert and author of The Wow Factor: Insider Style Secrets for Every Body and Every Budget, calls your shape the "lipstick."

The irony is that all your friends think you're lucky; that you can wear absolutely anything, right? Not so fast. Baggy clothes can look shapeless, and you often struggle to find things that give you any sort of feminine curves. You can easily veer off into prepubescent boy or clothing hanger territory with your straight up-and-down figure, and you're envious of those with killer curves. 

The key: Look for light-reflecting fabrics and prints that help to add wanted volume and dimension to your straighter frame. In essence, you can pull off most prints with ease -- horizontal stripes, glamorous metallics, sequins, and embellishments.

What Works:

  • Embrace belted pieces and stiffer fabrics that help lend the body more shape.
  • Strong blocks of color, stripes, and bold prints work brilliantly for you; they add welcome width to a slender frame, and help create shape for your narrow silhouette.
  • Pants or jackets with curve-building flap pockets or peplums were made for you. 

What Doesn't:

  • Baggy, oversize clothes that camouflage any curves you do have
  • Low-rise, boyish pants that make you look more masculine
  • Skinny jeans with a skinny tee (unless you want to look like a beanpole)
  • Shapeless dresses that just "hang" on your body
  • Midcalf or tea-length skirts and dresses that can make you look dowdy

The Best Dress for Your Shape
