A Straight Shape

Congrats you can get away with everything!  While any dress will look amazing, if you’re wanting to create shape, look for a dress with a  peplum.  A peplum will create a waist and give your hips a little more shape than normal.  Shop styles like this one  here.

Curvy as an hourglass

Hey there femme fatale!  To accentuate your waist and hide your trouble spots, look for a  wrap dress.  It will add to your fabulous shape and you'll be able to go from dressy to casual with a change of accessories.  I would look for designs by the inventor of this iconic dress Diane von Furstenberg.  I’ve had one for 12 years and it still looks new!

An Apple a Day

Have broad shoulder and narrow hips?  Look for a  sheath dress to give your shape the perfect balance.  Pay attention to a rounded neckline like this boat neck shape to make your shoulders look narrower.
