y d o B s e p a h S How to measure your Body Shape…….. Shoulders: Have someone help you measure from the tip of one shoulder all the way around you. The measuring tape should be high up around your shoulders so it almost slips off. Bust: Pull the measuring tape taut across the fullest part of your bust and around your back. Don’t pull the tape so taut that your breasts start to get squashed. Waist: Measure the smallest part of your natural waist, just above the belly button. Hips: Start at one hip (below the hip bone) and wrap the tape measure around the largest part of your butt.

Strawberry : Style Advice A Strawberry body shape is like an inverted triangle, so the aim is to make the illusion of an hourglass figure by adding volume around your hips to balance your broader top half, while flattering your shoulders. Strong shoulders are an asset, so you have to keep everything else in proportion.


• Wear tulip skirts and harem pants they will create volume on your lower half of the body. Make sure you make them go in at the waistline with a belt. • A strawberry figure is really suited to classic looks, so you should go for sexy tailored jackets, slim-line trousers and sweeping dresses. As you don’t want to draw attention to your shoulders avoid block colours as it makes you look bulkier. • Wrap tops are the best for your inverted triangle body, especially if you have a big bust. • Accessories should be large and bold. Longer necklaces will create a focus in the centre of the body.

Pear : Style Advice A pear body shape is when your smaller at the top but larger in the lower body ,the main aim is to minimize the hip and thigh area. Wear stuff which draws attention to the top half your body with accessories, but some people like showing there big hips off.


• Wear patterned clothing as it makes certain parts of the body look bigger. • Some pear shaped people try to wear chunky necklaces to make their bust look bigger as it distracts you from the bottom half of the body. • However some people like focusing on the bottom half of the body so you can wear fitted/bodycon skirts and dresses so they stand out more to show off your bottom curves. • As the bust on a pear is usually smaller you can wear tops with thrills or embroidery on them so it makes them look fuller.

Rectangle : Style Advice In dressing your rectangular shaped body, the aim here is to look for clothes that make your boyish figure look more feminine. You can pull off mostly every style, using patterns or detailing to add definition to the body.

• Look for clothes that can create volume with things such as frills, fluted edges and ruffles etc. • The best thing for you is boot cut jeans because the slight flare and slim fit expresses a petite waist and an amazing bum. • When wearing dresses/tops that make you look really rectangle add a belt to make the waist look thinner creating more of a shape to the body. • You should accessorise allot with your clothing as it is very feminine and distracts you from the body.

When dressing your hourglass figure, there isn’t that much to be done but you should try to really accentuate you figure. It is common knowledge that the hourglass is considered the perfect feminine shape as it shows your curves.

Hourglass : Style Advice

• When wearing tops/jackets try and get puffed sleeves to emphasise the shoulders . • A pencil skirt is the most flattering on you as it really shows your curves and A-line skirts look nice too. • You should wear dresses/tops/skirts with Peplum detail on them because it creates a line down from the waistline to the hip, which will exaggerate your curves. • When wearing jeans try and find dark ones with big pockets on the bum as it extenuates the curves. • If you feel you’re a little on the small side wear ¾ length or skirts just below the knee with a slit to make you look taller.

Apple : Style Advice When dressing your apple shape, the main aim is balancing the proportions out , to make your upper body look longer and make your shoulders and waist appear slimmer.

• To make your waist look slimmer you could wear body control underwear to define your middle area. • As apple-shaped ladies normally have larger busts you should go a for V-neckline to show them off. • Choose simple tailored jackets that go in at your waist or jackets that have belts on to give the illusion of a smaller waist and this will trim in your middle area. • Wrap dresses are always the best choice for an apple body shape as they fit amazingly over a fuller bust. A side tie on the dress will draw attention away from the stomach.

Evaluation For my final photo-shoot I chose the trend ‘ Midnight Glam’ from S/S2016. Midnight Glam is quite a young person based trend so I chose a young model , she wore a gold/silver sparkly sequined bodycon with black heels. The hair was curly and the makeup was over the top so bright lips and sparkly eye makeup with dark smokes as it was supposed to look Asif she was going on a night out with friends. My target consumer group was for a young girl who follows recent trends so would relate to the majority consumer group , to fit this consumer group I included fun props as its for young people and the model wore a recently bought dress from a shop with recent trends. For the magazine I chose vogue as the photo-shoot and layout because it looks similar to their magazine covers and what would be in that type of magazine. I also edited my front cover picture colours as it gave a certain look. When planning and preparing for my photo-shoot I looked at recent trends and created some concept boards which related the trend that I chose called ‘Midnight Glam’ so it included stuff like lights , make up , hair ideas etc. Overall, my photo-shoot was quite successful as everything went to plan with what I wanted it to look like. I would have liked to do a practice run as I have never done a photo-shoot before so I weren’t really sure if I was doing the right things for it . Finding a model for the shoot was easy because I only needed a young person so I used my friend as she wears allot of going out clothes as she's only young which is common nowadays and the clothes was also easy to find as I had lots to choose from as it is a popular trend . I worked well in a team as it was easy to get things done and it was fun to do as you could mess around with it quite a bit . However, If I could do anything different I would have looked for better props as I think they make a photo-shoot look better.
