These three beautiful ladies are all classified as an "apple shape," meaning they carry their weight in their upper body (and have awesome legs!) As a rule of thumb, if you are looking to visually balance the body, wearing looser fabrics on top (while still following body lines) and breaking up the upper and lower body are great ways to go! The style icons I picked for this month are America Ferrera, Jennifer Hudson, and Jessica Biel. Watch out for them!
2. "Full-Figured Hourglass"
These three curvy women are my personal style inspiration for this month. The first two, Hayley Hasslehoff and Nadia Aboulhosn have both taken the plus size modeling world by storm, and I am inspired by them because they don't adhere to the traditional "plus size" rules. (Highlight the waist, don't wear loud patterns, blah blah blah) And they look great! The lovely lady in the yellow skirt is Louis Pentland (you might know her from her own super famous blog, Sprinkle of Glitter) and she is just adorable and her clothing is always on point! Yay for risktakers!
All of these women have completely different body types, but they are all still classified as "pear" shaped, meaning they've got hips and they know how to use them! (haha, you go girls!) As you can see from the photos, all of the girls have highlighted the natural waist, breaking up the body in all the right ways. A- line skirts and flared bottoms are also very flattering, so never be afraid to try those out, even if they seem too "retro" for your normal taste. These three stunners are Jennifer Love Hewitt, Lauren Haber (check out her blog here!), and Leighton Meester! So beautiful!
These beauties are all "petite." Let's set something straight first, being petite is not the same as being "too skinny" or "anorexic." These ladies just have small frames, but they are completely healthy and beautiful! (And even if someone is battling an eating disorder, telling them that they look "anorexic" is not nice or appropriate!) If you are having trouble finding clothing that fits you, pay close attention to the brands these three style icons throw out! This month they're Sarah Hyland, Rachel Bilson, and Zoe Sugg!
