This morning I was heading to the pool for a class then, meeting up with a fellow entrepreneur over coffee. So what was I going to wear that was easy to transport to the pool along with accessories, of course. Too hot for crop pants, a skirt meant a top, maybe shrug and jewelry. Too much to carry! I turn to where the pants and dresses are in my closet. There is it, a jersey knit dress in a ’70s pattern of coral, yellow and orange. Easy! Because the dress has a bold pattern, all I had to add was pair of earrings and I was done. And I always get tons of compliments when I wear this dress; a shift style that works well even though my body type is bigger on the bottom. I have dressed it up for work, or dressed it down for casual meetings like today. Is it this easy for you in the mornings? It should be, particularly in the summer when we all want to maximize our outdoor time enjoying the weather and not standing in the closet figuring out what to wear.
I have assembled a few examples of dresses for each of the 5 body types I have discussed before. It’s all about creating balance in your figure which can be done not only by the cut of the dress but with colors and patterns. Add some accessories and you are off to spend time doing what you really want to do.
