How to choose the right clothing according to your body shape and colors

Is choosing your clothes a question of style?

For some people it's logical and innate and for others it's a little more problematic, and there's no universal answer.
Everyone has their own tastes, desires and style!

If you are here, it is because you are curious and want to know more!

Know your body shape

The first step in choosing a piece of clothing is to know its morphology, that is to say the shape of your silhouette. There are different body types; in A, V, H, O or X. The idea is to find the garment that will balance your silhouette, highlighting your assets and your charm!

Take your measurements

You can measure your chest, waist and hip measurements and compare the proportions.
How to take measures ?

For the chest measurement: with a tape measure, stand upright and straight, pass the tape around the chest, above the breasts (at nipple level), under the armpits and around the back, breathing normally and without tightening the tape measure too much

For the waistline: with a tape measure, stand upright and straight, and pass the tape to the hollowest part of your waist, breathing normally without tightening the tape measure too much
For the hip measurement: with a tape measure, stand upright and straight, and pass the tape to the strongest point of the buttocks, without tightening the tape measure too much

You can also look in a mirror and observe the general shape of your body, comparing your shoulders (build), your waist and your hips.

Morphologies

An A-shaped body shape means having your hips wider than your shoulders. It is a pyramid silhouette. For this type of figure, opt for clothes that give volume to the upper body.
A V-shaped body shape means having shoulders wider than the hips, unlike an A-shaped body shape. For this type of silhouette, opt for clothes that highlight the lower body.
An H shape means having aligned shoulders and hips and a little or no waistline. It's a rather square silhouette, focus on flowing clothes, which brings a touch of femininity.
An O-shaped body shape means having aligned shoulders and hips but no marked waist. It is a round and generous figure with generally a strong chest. The balance is there, we must therefore focus on clothes which highlight the assets and which structure the silhouette
An X shape means having aligned shoulders and hips and a defined waist. This is a rather slim and thin figure, compared to the figure 8 body shape.
A figure 8 body shape means having shoulders and hips aligned with a marked waist. This silhouette has curves compared to the X shape, which is rather thin

For body shapes X and 8, any type of clothing goes with these two silhouettes

To go further in determining your body shape, you can turn to image consultants, who will guide you step by step in finding clothes adapted to your body shape but also in the colors that suit you.

Colors

Colors have an impact on your complexion, your mood and your image. They can make you look good or make you look dull, make you happy or sad. To choose the right colors, you can take into account the season, your age, your style and your personality. You can also do a colorimetry test, which involves determining the colors that suit you best based on the color of your eyes, hair and skin.
Colorimetry allows us to know the colors that suit us, in order to define our wardrobe.

For a first step, depending on the color of your skin, your eyes and your hair, you can move towards warm or cold tones. You can do a test with the same item of clothing and in different colors (a panel of cool tones and a panel of warm tones) and see which one(s) flatter you.

As with determining body shape, if you want to go further, you can get help from an image coach.

Remember that style is unique to everyone and that if a color or a piece of clothing attracts you, it is because it is part of your style and you will know how to accessorize and wear it in order to highlight yourself!

There you go, you now have some ideas for choosing clothing according to your body shape and colors. Don't forget that the most important thing is to have fun and express your personality through your look. Good shopping !
