Wardrobe Capsule for the Hourglass(or X) Shaped Woman

Greetings Fashionistas!

Today, I'm sharing with you my closet capsule for the X(or hourglass) shaped woman. This is the silhouette we strive to achieve with our clothes. It's the balance between the top and the bottom.

When it comes to dressing this type of body,  we tend to either wear tight clothes or baggy ones. Until I finally accepted my body, I used to go on the baggy side of fashion. Not quite sure I could flaunt my new body after the weight gain and loss. The trick is to wear clothes that skim your body--go for fitted(not clingy) clothes. Don't forgt to show off your waist too with a cute belt. Basically, you can wear anything you want. Confidence is key no matter what size you are at this moment.

In this fashion capsule, I chose the basic cuts and colors. This way, you can mix and match to create tons of outfits. I've also put in some pieces you can wear for date-night or the weekend. For more outfits ideas for weekend, casual or professional settings, check out my recent blogs. I've also created some awesome outsits on Polyvore.

Do you fit in the hourglass category? Not sure? Let me know. I'm here to help you!

Wardrobe Capsule for the Rectangle(or H) Shaped Woman

Greetings Fashionistas!

When it comes to dressing our body, it's not always easy. For this silhouette, your silhouette is on the boyish side. That means your curves are not as pronounced as the X(or hourglass) silhouette, for example. That doesn't mean you don't have any. Compared to the I-shaped silhouette, you have curves. Your silhouette is straight. Your shoulders, waist and hips are the same width, and you have sturdy thighs.

Untailored garments are perfect for your figure. Emphasize your legs with slim-fit trousers. Draw attention to your cleavage and not your waist.

Below, in this closet capsule I created for you, you will find some inspirations so you can mix and match to create outfits for your silhouette.

Wardrobe Capsule for the Strawberry(or V) Shaped Woman

Greetings Fashionistas!


Today, I share with you my Closet Capsule for V shaped women. If your shoulders are wider than your hips, then you fall in this category. 

With this body type, it's important to bring the focus away from your shoulders. Flared skirts, skinny jeans and peplum tops are some good choices. As you can see in the picture below, I chose some classic pieces for business and for pleasure. And, all the pieces emphasize your body and bring out your natural beauty. Add some jewelry and a cute bag, and voila! For more looks, go to my Polyvore portfolio.



Closet Essentials for the V Shaped Woman



One additional style tip I would like to mention here is about handbags. Carry them in your hand, not on your shoulder. This way, the attention is placed on the bottom half of your body.

Do you fit in this category? Not sure? I created this body shape quiz to help you figure it out. Need help? Let me know.

Wardrobe Capsule for the Pear(or A) Shaped Woman

Greetings Fashionistas!


Every woman deserves to be beautiful. Wearing the right clothes certainly help. When we choose the right fit and color, our inner beauty shines through. 

When it comes to our body shape, we are built in different ways. Sometimes, we aren't too sure how to dress our body because of weight gain(or weight loss) or a lack of confidence in ourselves. I know when I hit my forties, I had no longer had a clue how to dress. I felt like I was 20 years old, still do. But my body is no longer what is used to be. The reality is what it is, and when it comes to feeling our best, accepting our body the way it is, can only work in our favor.

That's why I created a series of Closet Essentials for every(main) body type. If you are not certain of your body type, I have a body type quiz just for you. Simply click here.

The series starts with the A shaped woman. If you are heavier on the bottom, then you fall in this category. These essentials are classic pieces composed of neutrals and prints. What is great with this closet capsule is that you can mix and match, and also one side for business attire and the other for weekend(casual).

Closet Capsule: Woman's Casual Wear

Greetings Fashionistas!

Today, I share with you a Closet Capsule for Weekend(Casual) Wear.  As I was going through my wardrobe, I found that most of my clothes are for the office. I used to work in an office building in downtown Montreal. So, that's why I have a lot of clothes I can only wear now on special occasions or business meetings with my fashion clients. Most of the time, I'm at home, researching the latest trends or shopping online. 

If you are like me and work from home or have a closet full of Business attire, it's easy to get trapped in the fashion rut. Wearing the same clothes(leggings and t-shirt) every day. That's why I decided to refresh my closet and create a capsule so I can get inspired. Plus, this gives me an excuse to go shopping for whatever I don't have...hehe

These essentials are classic pieces. That means this capsule is composed of neutrals and classic prints like stripes and plaid. You can personalize your outfits with accessories like hats and scarves.

Classic Fashion Color Combinations

Greetings Fashionistas!  

When it comes to color combinations, every season, designers concoct magical ones for our viewing pleasure. As fashionistas, we can also come up with our own combinations. In both cases, some work while others fizz out like trends. 

So, after studying this subject, I discovered that classic fashion color combinations are the best way to go. They never go out of style. You always look stylish. Plus, mixing them up procures lots of fun. 

Ready for some fun? Let me show you some of the outfits I created on Polyvore


1. Neutral colors worn together 
Stylish

This method is timeless and flattering. It also provides flexibility in your wardrobe. Neutral colors are black, navy, white, brown, grey, khaki, burgundy and emerald. I added the last two because they work well together and with other neutrals. Plus, a color seen for more than a season is always a classic in my book.


2. Lighten a neutral with a pastel
Moto Jacket
Yes, pastels can be worn any season. However, in order to avoid wearing pastels from head-to-toe and seem too springy, adding a neutral makes the outfit stylish and classic.


3. Wear a neutral with trendy colors 
Modern Victorian

Here, we can choose turquoise, tangerine, plum or taupe. These colors don't always come every season, but they are good choices when paring them with neutrals.


4. Mix your neutrals with prints, patterns and textures 
Summer to Fall


Stripes, a leopard print or a brocade with a neutral. So, classy and chic!


5. Add some accessories
Finally, every outfit deserves and is never complete without a piece of statement jewelry, fun shoes, a trendy bag or a cute scarf.

Closet Essentials for the Weekend

Greetings Fashionistas!

Today, I'm sharing with you the essentials for a weekend closet. 

When it comes to the weekend, we want to be comfortable, right? But we also want to be stylish. Who wants to look frumpy when doing the groceries? Not me. So, I created this guide so you can mix and match the pieces for fun and stylish looks.



Closet Essentials for the Weekend



As you can see, you don't need alot of pieces. Classic tops and bottoms, combined with a poncho or a cardigan and some awesome shoes. A belt is always useful to show off your waist when wearing a loose sweater or blouse. Add a stylish hat, and you're ready to go! Always remember to choose pieces that flatter your silhouette.
