Reviewing the figures
figuring out the strengths of one's figure is undoubtedly a shortcut to greatly improving one's style (fit is key), but should body-type dictate style? that is, if one is an hour-glass, then is it possible to look for cuts that flatter an hour-glass shape without altering the desired style or look? hour-glass conjures up images of 1940-50s fashions, and some 80s as well, but does an hour-glass have to adhere to a specific fashion era? can an hour-glass body rock a punk senability? can a rectangle body go beyond boy-cut clothes? i think definitely yes, but it is tricky.
do you let your body define more than your tailoring? does it also define your style?
