Flare has found wearable runway looks for every shape. You don't need to wander wondering what clothes to wear. Check this out...

For Petite:

Fashion finds
1. Silk top, $90, Banana Republic.
2. Leather belt, $315, Suzi Roher.
3. Cotton/polyester-blend dress, $128, Kensie, The Bay.
4. Pleather bag, $85, High Fashion Handbags.
5. Sequined skirt, $165, Banana Republic.
6. Nylon/spandex leggings, $175, Norma Kamali for Everlast, The Bay.
7. Leather shoes, $580, Davis by Ruthie Davis.

Style tips:
● Voluminous shapes can overwhelm petite frames. Cinching the waist controls the volume.
● Hemlines should be long or mini—anything between shortens the leg.
● A monochromatic head-to-toe look creates the illusion of a taller body.
● Sharply tailored pieces and short dresses are no-fail basics..

For Tall and Lean:

Fashion Finds
1. Acrylic/wool-blend coat, $199, Mango.
2. Glass brooch, $380, Isaac Manevitz for Ben-Amun.
3. Patent-leather booties, $640, Davis by Ruthie Davis.
4. Metal bracelet, $185, Van der Straeten, Holt Renfrew.
5. Merino-wool sweater, $290, Rebecca Taylor.
6. Wool/lycra-blend skirt, $240, Rebecca Taylor.
7. Stretch-Georgette dress, $525, Castle Starr.

Style tips:
● Don’t try to hide your height. Stand tall.
● Experiment with different lengths. Short doesn’t always mean better.
● Play with proportion, such as a voluminous jacket over a skinny pant.
● Prints and texture add dimension to any look.

For Pregnant Women:

Fashion Finds
1. Pleather bag, $69, Mexx.
2. Wool/alpaca-blend coat, $555, Rebecca Taylor.

4. Patent-PVC shoes, $135, Nine West.
5. Silk dress, $1,495, Jeremy Laing.
6. Malachite necklace, $630, Alexis Bittar.

Style tips:
● Avoid overly tailored styles that bind and constrict.
● Accessories can jazz up the plainest of dresses.
● Mimic an empire waist with a skinny belt.
● Stay away from loud prints or stripes that draw attention to the tummy.
● Opt for ankle booties or T-strap pumps with a slightly lower heel—chic but comfortable.

For Curvy:

1. Polyester/spandex satin blouse, $60, Bedo.
2. Polyester belt, $25, Aldo.
3. Wool/polyester dress, $275, Firetrap.
4. Crystal earrings, $40, Winners.
5. Wool flannel jacket, $195, Banana Republic.
6. Leather shoes, $250, Aldo.

Style Tips:
● Don’t try to hide or conceal your assets; instead, choose body-skimming pieces.
● Waist-cinching belts define your shape even more.
● Tailored styles, such as fitted shirts and pencil skirts, accentuate your curves.
● Avoid loud graphic or floral prints and opt for small and playful patterns instead.
