Fall Trends that Really Flatter
It is almost time to say goodbye to summer and say hello to the fall and winter weather. Are you ready for it? In this year’s fall collections, we’ve seen a lot of bold silhouettes, oversized capes, and strong shoulders. These trends may not be for all types of bodies so you really have to find something that you can play with all throughout the season. Here are some fall trends that will really show off your assets and hide your flaws:
1. Svelte Ankles- 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.
2. Narrow Torso- Exaggerated Sleeves
Large, beautiful, exaggerated sleeves are here for fall, 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.
3. Killer Bottom- 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!
4. Long Legs – Wide Leg Pants
If you’ve got some leg to spare, work them into a wide-leg trouser. Alice + Olivia did it just right with a high-waisted cut for even more length.
5. Small Chest- 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.
