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'm wearing a plain gray t-shirt with pink-magenta shorts and my hair is tied back in the littlest messiest ponytail you've ever seen! I didn't even tie it with a hair tie, I tied it with my cloth headband! I'm recovering from a cough so that's why I'm so messy XD

I'm an only child so it really depends on things, they're not strict when it comes to most things. I can wear what I want unless you know, it's like, completely outta question. I can cuss and all, like say one or two "okay-cuss words" around them, just as long as it's not AT them. They're fine with spending money lol, as much as it takes. I don't really ask for stuff, but I get stuff for no reason sometimes. It can be a problem,  cuz I consider it throwing money down the drain. but I'm somewhat grateful. but my parents are also overprotective LOL so I can't go out too far on my own and stuff. "Watch out for weird boys, honey." All that craap, but I guess I can deal with it.
