Style Your Body Shape: The Column

Are you a Column? Here are some top tips to dress for your shape from Trinny & Susannah.

Columns are blessed with height, but less curves. Long, slim legs and a slim waist are your forte and your shoulders tend to be the same width as your hips.

CELEBRITY INSPIRATION Think Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Kidman.

SHOP FOR: Draw attention to the centre of your body.This stops the eye going straight up and down. Bold colours and flattering cuts will help compliment your fab figure.

Look out for A-line skirts, capri pants, wide belts and anything with lots of layers to add volume where it’s lacking.

Go big and bold with accessories such as a chunky necklace to draw attention to the centre of your body. Large bangles or a statement ring will also help to balance out your slim shape.

AVOID: Drab, shapeless dresses are a definite no-no, as are scooped necklines. Also avoid wearing the same colour top as bottom.

Remember, it’s all about shape! Stand tall and embrace your versatile feminity!
