How to Dress for Your Body Type - Long and Lean

Choose chunky knit sweaters, feminine tops and flared skirts to add curves.
Fashion for Long and Lean Figures

One of the keys to great style is knowing what type of clothes work for your body type. If you're long and lean like Kirsten Dunst, keep reading to find out how to dress up your figure!

Long and Lean - Tips for Tops

Clothes that add fullness will create the illusion of curves. So look for tops that can be cinched at the waist and choose pretty colors and soft, floaty fabrics for a girlier feel. And lucky for you, oversize is in this season so play with your proportions in billowy tops and chunky knit sweaters.

Long and Lean - Basic Bottoms

Girls with boyish figures can wear pretty much anything on the bottom - but avoid anything that's too fitted, which can emphasize a straight silhouette. Go about creating a curvy shape with pants and jeans with side pockets to bulk out your slim hips, and flared and frilly skirts to add more volume to your figure.

Long and Lean - A Shoe-In

Forget the pointy heels cuz round-toe shoes will give a soft finish to long legs. Slip on dainty ballet flats or step into a pair of knee-high boots and you'll be good to go!

I got this shirt and it has open shoulders. I really like it, but kinda want to cover it a bit. Like sew lace or bows where it's open. But I'm not sure if it'll look good or not. Any suggestions?
