Happy May to you! After receiving some pretty incredible feedback from you guys, I have decided to try something a smidge different from past Love Look posts. This will make these suggestions MUCH much more personalized and simple. Each piece will be labeled by which body shape it will flatter the most. No more wondering if it will work on you...if the shape that describes you is listed beneath the item, it will flatter your body! Boom! Let's get this party started...
If you are not sure which body shape you are, I have the descriptions listed here. This is extremely important to know. It is the foundation for knowing what items will flatter your body and which items will work against it. This makes shopping less complicated, it cuts purchasing mistakes in half, and leaves you with only pieces that make you feel amazing!
Apple - ample bust, rounded stomach, slimmer hips
Pear - small bust, narrow shoulders, more love in the hips, thighs, or bum
Rectangle - few curves
Inverted Triangle - shoulders broader than hips
Are you still feeling unsure about which body shape you have? Would you like an expert to tell you? Check out the Love, Krystle Beautiful Body Shape Finder. A style expert will review your answers, send you the results as well as a document sharing what items are going to balance and flatter your lovely shape. Note: please click "Return to Merchant" once payment is complete to fill out your survey.
Tops and Tees
Have a wedding to attend? Here are some lovely options...
Phew... and there you have it. I am sweating over here coming up with all these variables. So here is the skinny...choosing items that are specific to your shape is time consuming but well worth the effort. This is a service I offer clients (I call it Online Personal Shopping) and this is a lovely sneak peak at how it all works. When I know your body shape and your style type, then we have a magical concoction! You receive hand picked links that will flatter and compliment you every time.
Do you know your body shape?! How would this change the way you dress and shop in the future??
P.S. Was this a helpful post in navigating which pieces will let your figure shine? I want all of your thoughts and feedback so I can continue to serve your deepest styling needs. XOXO
Want a pro styling tip? This tip takes putting on a top and bottom from ordinary to interesting in seconds.
I am going to teach you how to front tuck! Here are the benefits to front tucking your tops and tees...
1. It defines your waist. This is important for all women whether you have a defined waist or not. If you have a waist, it won't be lost under your clothes. If you don't have a waist, it creates the illusion that you do. Win win.
2. It instantly makes your outfit more interesting. Without it, you simply have a top with a bottom, with it you have started to create a look. These little details are what takes your outfit from "MEH" to "A-MEH-ZING".
Check out this quick video on how to front tuck your tops and tees...
Quick, easy, and relatively painless, right? I do have to say...the quality of your tee does matter. Cheap jersey will cling to all the areas you don't want it to. The one I am wearing in this video is from Everlane. They offer high quality tee shirts at an extremely reasonable price. Most of them are made in the USA 👍🏼
An important side note...if you feel you carry most of your love in your midsection or identity with an apple body shape (Apple Shape: ample bust, rounded stomach, slimmer hips), this may not be an effective tip. I encourage you to try it, but if you are not feeling fabulous, check out some of these tops that will give you a waist without needing to front tuck.
I hope this tip is helpful to you! It has single handedly changed the way I dress forever 💕
P.S. Do you already front tuck your tops and tees? If not, are you going to give it a whirl?? Keep me posted, I am super curious...
