How to Holiday Style For Your Body Type: Small on Top, Big on Bottom

Pink Slip Fashion believes that every woman should look her best, especially for the holiday season. With an array of cocktail parties and events on the horizon for this season’s cheerful tidings, Pink Slip Fashion has decided to put together some looks for various body types.

Tonight we’re going to focus on silhouettes that cater to women who are smaller on top and bigger on bottom. With help from the ultimate guide to dressing, “Dress Your Best,” by Clinton Kelly and Stacy London, I’ve culminated the above looks.

Here are the basics to avoid any fashion slips:

1) For average height women, choose a halter style with an a-line skirt. Go for a waist with some sparkle to accentuate the bust line. The a-line hem in lightweight chiffon will help camouflage larger on bottom areas.

2) For petite women, Pink Slip Fashion recommends that women choose a strapless option. It emphasizes broad shoulders and your decollete. Add a brooch at the neckline to draw more attention to your bodice.

3) Lastly, for taller women who are large on bottom, go for a higher neckline with jewels or beaded detailing. Preferably a sleeveless style to once again highlight shoulders and arms. Structured seams at the bodice and an a-line, knee length hem will create a proportionate and flattering silhouette.

Top off each look with a pointed, metallic shoe, which will define a long, lean leg line, and a small textured clutch.
