Figure Flattering Wedding Guest Dresses
Fall is an exciting time to attend a wedding because of all the gorgeous wedding guest dresses.
You'll find deep, rich, autumn colors, luxe fabrics, texture, and sparkle.
Combine that with a figure flattering style & you have a WOW wedding guest dress.
Here are the best styles to suit your body.
Body Type: Pear Shape
You have narrow shoulders, broad hips & appear bottom heavy.
Your goal is to balance out your hips & shoulders.
Try a portrait collar, boatneck neckline, or a dress with flutter sleeves to help broaden the shoulders.
Embellishment at the neckline also works well, as does a cap sleeve.
Dark colors on your bottom half will help camouflage your bottom half.
Body Type: Inverted Triangle
You have broad shoulders & narrow hips.
To create balance, wear V-neck or halter styles to open up your broad chest.
A voluminous skirt or palazzo pants on your bottom half will make your hips look fuller.
Tea-length styles are also a great option to show off your legs.
Body Type: Curvy Hourglass
You are balanced top and bottom.
Your goal is to play up your shape without looking too sexy.
Try an elegant, draped wrap dress with soft ruching to highlight your curves and downplay your tummy.
Any waist detail works well to spotlight your slim middle; if you wear a jacket, be sure it nips at your waist.
Body Type: Apple
You have a full midsection & bust, but thin legs.
Your goal is to create angles where there are none.
Try V-necks to open the chest, or empire waists to raise the core, or structured jackets over loose, flowing dresses.
Body Type: Rectangle
You have an athletic figure that is boxy with no waist.
The goal is to create curves and feminize the body.
Opt for a wrap dress, a belted style, or a dress with a deep, open neckline.
Fitted skirts that flare, like trumpet skirts, are perfect, as is any feminine detailing.
Once you've found the style that flatters your body, the real fun beings!
Take your inspiration from nature and go all out in a fall wedding guest dress as rich and colorful as the stunning autumn scenery!
