    All women want to look their best especially on special occasions like prom and homecoming. A big part of the process of finding the perfect dress is to know what type of body you have. Once you are aware of your body type, you can dress it to its best advantage.

    One body type is called the apple-shaped body. Unlike the pear-shaped body which is generally thin up top and heavier in the hips and thigh area, the apple-shaped body is mainly thin in the arms and legs and thicker in the mid-section with a fuller bust. Often, the apple is one or two sizes larger on the top than the bottom. The apple-shaped woman should avoid wearing skinny pants which would accentuate the larger mid-section. She can get away with tapered ankles if worn with a long tunic-type top that flares out. She should avoid ruffles, pleated pants, and tight-fitting skirts. If you are dressing for a special event a formal empire waist dress is a great camouflage for the apple-shaped body. The empire waist is under the bust line tricking the eye to seeing a narrower waist. It creates an even more visually pleasing look when paired with an a-line skirt that flows away from the body and a deep v-neck top to bring your eye to her face. This type of dress also solves the problem of the size difference between the top and bottom with a much better fit that is flattering.

    Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Channel was a pioneer in womens’ fashions starting in the 1910’s. Her innovative style freed women from the straight-laced uncomfortable stiff clothing worn previously. She furthered her successful, independent image through her designs which embodied her personality, confidence, and style.

    In 1926 Coco introduced the ‘little black dress’ by publishing a picture of a simple black dress in Vogue. The dress was calf-length which was considered rather risqué for the times and accessible to women of all social classes. Vogue reported that the dress should be worn by all women of ‘taste’. It soon was a fashion sensation.

    The little black dress is now a classic look and a must for every woman’s closet. Chic and simple, this fashion staple can take you from the office to an elegant evening cocktail party. Coco Channel always said that a woman should be two things, classy and fabulous, and the little black dress helps to make this possible. Today’s dress designers agree and offer both classic and modern renditions of this popular dress in their latest collections.
