Dressing classy is simple. However, you need to know your own body shape before you can flatter it. Body shapes are classified into; straight, pear, spoon, hourglass, inverted triangle, oval and diamond.
If you have a straight body, it means that your bust and hips are basically the same size. Your waist is slightly smaller than the bust and hips. If you have a pear-body shape, it just means that your hips are larger than the bust and your waist gradually slopes out to the hips.
A spoon shape body would mean that your hips are larger than the bust and is defined. Your waist is slightly smaller than the bust. If your body is shaped like an hourglass, it means that your bust and hips are about the same size and has a well define waist. However, if your bust is larger than your hips and have a defined waist, this would mean that you have a top hourglass body.
An inverted triangle body would mean large bust, narrow hips and not a very well define waist. You are considered having an oval body if your waist is larger than the bust and hips. Your hips are narrower than your shoulders and breast are ample in size. Lastly, the diamond body is ne where the waist is larger than the bust and hips. Shoulders are narrower than the hips and the breasts are small to medium in size. So, what exactly is your body shape?
To dress a straight body, you need to proportionally dress the top and bottom of your body while enhancing your waist. Tops and bottoms that will add curves and create a more define waist for you will be good. To dress a pear-body, you need to enhance and add volume to your upper body while enhancing your waist and de-emphasizing your lower body.
Dressing a spoon body needs to draw attention to your upper body and de-emphasize your tummy and hips. Tops that can help to balance your lower half while camouflaging any tummy bulges and bottoms that will minimize your lower half will be great. You are lucky to have an hourglass body. The great way to show off your body is use wide belts over shirts and dresses.
The key to dress a top hourglass body is to balance your body with ample bust while accentuating your enviable waist. If you have an inverted triangle body, look for tops with narrow V-necks, wrap-styled, tailored shirts and jackets, A-line skirts, cargo pants, boot-cut or slightly flared legs bottoms and so on. Oval body should look for tops that will taper your upper body. If you have a diamond shape body, you should create a more defined waist and accentuate your shoulders and bust.
Now with your body shape in mind, dressing classy is easy as there are just a handful of basic tips when picking what you wear. Black is one of the colors to achieve a classy style. Of course other colors are possible too but you have to be more cautious with the design. Simple design usually looks classier than a complicated one. Remember to go for an understated style of clothing.
This means nothing flashy that shows a lot of your skin. For example, an outfit that shows a lot of cleavage or an outfit that is too short is definitely not classy. Simple, understated pieces of jewelry can be used to enhance your outfit but do not overwhelm it.
