Today I filmed a video on Christmas outfits for your body shape.  I know that many women suffer from negative body image, especially around the holidays and times when there will be a lot of parties or family get-togethers.  Not knowing what to wear, or how to dress your shape can be so stressful so I wanted to help! :)  Here are a few tips: 

- If you have an hourglass shape, go for a waist-cinching belt and a-line skirt to accentuate your curves.  Same goes for the full-figure, just choose a thicker belt!
- Pear shapes should opt for something darker on bottom and more decorative or detailed on top.  Horizontal stripes will broaden out a smaller upper body which in turn makes your shape look more balanced.  A bright or colourful scarf will also add bulk and make your bust appear bigger!
- If you have an apple shape or an athletic shape (broad shoulders), try to draw the attention towards your lower body instead by wearing a voluminous pair of shorts.  These will show off your legs and make your hips appear larger.  If you have a bigger bust, go for a v-neck top as these are more flattering.
- Boyish shapes can basically get away with any of the three outfits shown above but the second will suit you best :)

I hope you guys liked this post and hopefully you found it helpful!  Which outfit do you think I should wear this Christmas?!  Knowing me I will probably change my mind 100 times and then go for something entirely different...hahaha!

Stay Stylish!
