We know that there is no perfect figure. The part that needs to be perfect is the style you choose, not your figure! Everyone is unique in their shape, and there are many terms to define shape. You could be a type of fruit- apple shaped, pear shaped. Your hips could be in the geometry category- square, diamond, triangular. Or your figure could even be labeled under an alphabet letter- A shape, O shape, R shape. It can get a little tricky.
Once again, Fit Fridays decided to help our customers find what are the best attributes of their figure. What styles work best for your figure and help to accent your best features? With this guide we share our favorite shape solutions from the our Fall 15 Fashion Collection. Let’s start first by analyzing the shape characteristics of you!
WEDGE SHAPE / STANDARD SHAPE
Wedge and standard shapes tend to have smaller hips and bottoms and less of an hour glass figure. Choose styles that create shape for you. Our Samantha Shirt Dress (ON SALE!) creates a belted waist with a cute bow detail. Mud Pie’s Drew Wrap Dress (ON SALE!) has a cinched elasticated waist that gives your body shape. This dress is also great for square shapes since they tend to have narrow shoulders, and the three-quarter sleeves balance out your upper body. Also try adding more attention to the neckline area with a Whitney Ruffle Tunic or Dress!
HOUR GLASS / PEAR SHAPE
Also known as the S-curve, have a rounder physique. Your best assets are your shoulders, torso, and flat stomach. Aside from the Hourglass, a Pear shape can often come with narrow shoulders and smaller chests. Heighten these features with a detail at the chest for balance with the Belle Bow Tunic! Mud Pie’s Kingsley Tunic also has super cute V neck detail that draw the eyes up to the face and shoulders. The Mud Pie Laney sweater is a great form fitting winter piece to show off your curvy figure for the Hour Glass shapes!
MUSCULAR / ATHLETIC
This shape tends to be more of an athletic body type. These types have a solid torso and shoulders with a narrower waist. Features include wider arm muscles, broader shoulders, and fit legs/and calves. Show off your calves in our form fitting Ashton Ankle Pant this winter. Pair the Pant with an open neckline like our Kingsley Tunic or Belle Bow Tunic to draw attention to neckline detail and away from other areas. Mud Pie’s Colette Sequin Poncho is a one size fits most! This style is great for muscular shapes. The Colette hits just below the waist with a flattering deep V neckline. Wide sleeves slim your arms and scoop hem elongates your front body while concealing your back side!
BOX / SQUARE SHAPE
Box shapes can often be a shorter figure. The linear outline of Mud Pie’s Tuxedo leggings will contour your shape and elongate your legs. Other bottoms like our Harlow pant are a cut to hem style! Shorten with scissors in a snap to meet your perfect length! For tops, mix and match with layers to create more dimension in your style, and try to play around with different lengths. Try our Parker Poncho paired over our longer Whitney Tunic. Pick a contrasting print or color to differentiate between the two separates.
TIP FOR ALL BODY TYPES
Winter time is a perfect way to style up your shape! Wrap up with a Mud Pie Plaid Blanket Scarf to add some depth to your top half! Scarves are a great way to layer and distract from the body and accentuate the face. Our Plaid Blanket Scarf features coordinating patterns on each side that highlight around the face!
