Understanding body shapes and tones
What makes a fashion stylist
huge industry with a lot â€œItsofa obstacles. You have to compromise and be open. â€?
• V-necks look great on appleshaped ladies as you often have a large bust. • Tailored jackets that tighten in at your waist will make your waist appear smaller and will tighten in your tummy area. • Create vertical lines with long cardigans, jackets and ponchos
You should avoid
• Clothing that finishes at your fullest points e.g. jackets, cardigans • High necklines • Garments that are bulky around the tummy area
What should you wear? • Flared skirts are your best friend, to make your hips appear propionate to the top • TOP TIP- Draw attention towards your waist and your hips. • Square necklines, sweetheart necklines and scooped V neckline look really good on the top.
You should avoid
• Light colours: If you wear the light colours on top, it will make your top portion look bigger. • Box shaped clothes are a BAD idea as they will make you appear shapeless.
• Show off your small waist with a belt across the smallest part. • Tight fitted tops are your best friend! • A good push-up bra
• Wide is good. Keep the hems of pants skirts and dresses wide to visually balance a pear-shaped body. Pointy-toed shoes with a wide-hemmed pants will make your legs appear longer.
You should avoid
• Crop tops are your worst enemies as they draw attention to your midsection • Loose clothing
Hourglass. • It is common knowledge that the hourglass is considered the perfect feminine shape. • Think Marilyn Monroe • Show off your waist and play up your very feminine figure. • Choose straight leg or boot-cuts slightly flared bottoms to balance you out
You should avoid X
• Baggy pants they will make you appear rounder and heavier than you are
• Not loose and flowing
Rectangle • Frills, fluted edges and ruffles • Use strong blocks of colour to help define your body • Shift dresses and empire line dresses work well • A knee length pencil skirt that tapers in at the side will also add some curves and look good
You should avoid • Avoid shapeless clothes • Square toe shoes
• Noticeable waistband; high wasted trouser

Evaluation • My future trend I have chosen is Edge land- Tough Love which is a Tough tomboy denim style. This trend includes washed and worn denim tones and oversized. This trend worked well in with my magazine, I promoted the denim trend in my magazine with my photo shoot that linked with my style I used a over sized denim jacket with a white crop top and a different tone of denim ripped shorts. My location was set in a farm which links to the Tomboy theme and I used black boots and sunglasses to style the outfit and a usual blue bag to match the denim colours. My hair and makeup was inspired by WGSN on the Tough Love section. • My target consumer group is teenagers because I feel like they are more open to change when It comes to fashion. I have targeted the age group by using a young style. Denim is very popular with teenagers and I used a strobe makeup which is also in style at the moment and also a very funky hair style which is a young look. To style the outfit up I used Isabel Marant boots which is in fashion with all teenagers at the moment and a white crop bandeau top. I have made the shoot look fun so it is more appealing for a younger audience. • The magazine I have chosen is ELLE because it is targeted to young women age 16-30 interested in the latest fashion ands beauty trends which is what my trend is targeted towards. The ELLE magazine shows women’s outfits and styles and tips through out the magazine. I think the ELLE magazine matches my magazine the best because my magazine is targeted to only women and the trend I have chosen is a very young trend. Also the ELLE magazine front covers are usually one photo or two very plain photos with not much editing which is what I have went for with two plain unedited photos blurred into each other.
â€˘ The research I done was researching upcoming trends on WGSN I researched a few different trends which I made pages of in my magazine and then I decided on my Tough Love trend. To plan my photo shoots I used a mood board and a concept board to put together what I will use in my photo shoot, lighting, hair and makeup and also the style of my shoot I researched fashion magazines and chosen which one links best with my trend and my photo shoot which was the ELLE magazine. I also researched denim photo shoots to get an idea for my own.
â€˘ My photo shoot went to plan because I chose a model and my garment worked well with my trend, I used an oversized denim jacket with a different tone of denim shorts and some boots, sunglasses, bandeau crop top and a fashionable bag to make the trend look younger to link with my magazine. My hair and makeup also went to plan because I made sure that I chose styles that would be easy for me to create on my model so I spent more time on my photo shoot. My photos come out really well and linked with my chosen magazine and style, also they was good to edit because I used all different positions and different props in my shoot. If I was too do my shoot again I would of thought into my props and location of the shoot to match with my outfit to make my shoot more effective.
