I’m always a bit reluctant to write Best-For-Your-Body-Type or Trend posts, as I prefer to not offer “rules” that might suggest what one should wear. That said, I DO enjoy reading articles about how to style my body type, along with what trends are percolating out there in the big world of fashion. And like me, you are all busy, and researching topics on trends, color and style can be time consuming. Luckily, I enjoy the research and since I have the info, I figure why not pass it along.
This month on Ask Suzanne Bell we’ve been gearing up for the fall season. If you’re just getting back from holiday and catching up on posts, here’s a look at what we’ve covered so far.

As we look to what we want our Fall 2018 Wardrobe to look like and what voids we may want to fill, I thought it would be helpful to post a few guidelines on what shapes best flatter YOUR body type. Again, this is just a guide, but it is a place to begin. This graphic was found on Pinterest via www.Rowme.com (here). If you find these types of guides helpful, you will find more by visiting 2 of my Pinterest Pages; Fashion Tips (HERE) and Styling Tips (HERE).
I am a what you would call a Rectangle shape, and I would say this guide is true for me. The boyfriend jean is my go-to, most worn jean in my closet. That said, I bore of it sometimes and will pull out a flare, crop flare or wide leg/palazzo style jean to style. It requires a bit more effort and may not be quite as flattering, but I couldn’t imagine being boxed into just one style or silhouette. Skinny jeans are not my friend, yet most women say they can’t live without them.
Does this guide reflect what bottoms you feel best flatter you? Any surprises? Comments? Join the discussion down below! We would love to hear your thoughts or questions!
