    262. What Does Your Body Type Have to Do with Your Style? {Signature Style Series}

    262. What Does Your Body Type Have to Do with Your Style? {Signature Style Series}

    “I thought I didn’t have style but now I realize I just didn’t know how to dress for my body
    type.”
    Women’s bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and no two are alike. So it’s no wonder
    than trying to dress like someone else can leave you feeling frustrated and feeling
    frumpy. What most women don’t realize is that your body type has more to do with your
    style than you might think. In this episode I’m sharing how knowing this one key factor
    can affect your style in more ways than you can imagine, and how to leverage it to
    create our unique look.

    Your body type affects your style in more ways that you might think.
    First, you need to know what your body type is. This is the starting point for knowing
    what works for you.
    Consider your shape. That’s going to determine what silhouettes
    Fit and Proportion:
    Different body types have different proportions. For example, an hourglass figure might
    benefit from cinched waists to accentuate their curves, while a rectangle body type might use belts or contrasting colors to create the illusion of a waist. Clothes that fit well will always look more flattering, regardless of body type. Ill-fitting
    clothes can be uncomfortable and unflattering Highlighting Features:
    Certain clothing cuts can draw attention to your favorite features. For instance, someone
    with broad shoulders might choose a v-neck to elongate their neck, while someone with
    great legs might choose a skirt or shorts to show them off. Confidence and Comfort:
    Ultimately, feeling confident and comfortable in what you wear is the most important
    thing. If a certain style doesn't flatter your body type but makes you feel amazing, rock it! Beyond Body Type:
    Personal style goes way beyond body type. Consider your lifestyle, personality, and what
    makes you feel like you. Fashion is constantly evolving, and there are trends that flatter all body types. Experiment
    and find what works for you! The takeaway: Body type can be a starting point for exploring styles that flatter your
    proportions, but it shouldn't be a limitation. Embrace your unique shape, find clothes that fit well, and wear what makes you feel confident and like the best version of yourself.

Color School Homework

Great episodes on color! Going through Vogue on a color treasure hunt, to note how designers are using trend colors and flex colors. Looking at a model with sienna toned skin and a sienna trench, holding a camel bag that pops right out from the sienna. Love info that lets the left brain understand what the right brain senses. Thank you MM!

I am Color Unconfident

After wearing uniforms or lab coats for 38 years as a hospital pharmacist, I’ve never learned how to dress. I found Mary Michelle and her podcasts are helping so much with learning what are the best colors for me, what colors to put together and what my best colors are now that my hair is gray instead of brown. I am so thrilled with what I am learning that I’ve signed up for the color confidence classes I look forward to having a capsule wardrobe that I can mix and match and always look good.
