Thursday, 17 Feb 2011 09:49 AM

A woman looks her best when she dresses according to her body type. Women should look fashionable, but in the process shouldn’t forget to dress according to their build. Read on to find out what you should wear to compliment an athletic build.
1. Wear feminine chiffon, georgette dresses to look girly. Try mid-length or long-flowing ones that look very graceful. Using a lot of colors and prints will work to your advantage. Avoid black as it will make you look slender and undefined.
2 Halter-tops create soft curves. Look for tops, shirts, and dresses in soft colors. Choose princess lines that add curves to the figure.
3 Gathers and pleats on a skirt create more curves. Choose a single color, frilly skirt. Use a lot of pinks, red, and lemon shades to look your girly best. Use full skirts and pants that flare at the bottom or have horizontal lines to add proportion. You can wear fitted tops and flared leg bottoms for a feminine zeal. Always look for skirts and dresses with banded hems in darker colors.
4 Skinny jeans hug skinny, shapeless thighs and hips and give more definition. Again choose from light or basic hues.
5 V-necks and cowl necks work well to broaden your upper body.
