Dress Right For Your Type...

New season, new you, but is that style right for you? As diva fashionistas, we ALWAYS want to be up on the trends before they happen. Sometimes our unwilling desire to be trendy leads to FASHION DISASTERS or FASHION "Hell-No's" as I so affectionately call them.

Failing to dress right for you type not only makes the fashionista angels up above weep; it makes your friends in the diva fashionista sisterhood disappointed, and it kills your fashion credibility.

In an attempt to help all diva fashionistas keep their fashion street credibility up to par, I am going to tell you how to dress right for your type.

There are five body types and all women fall into one or more of the categories. The categories are curvy, wide hips, top heavy, straight up and down (boyish), and plus. Like I said before, every woman falls into one of more the of these categories, so it makes it even more important to dress right for your body type, whatever that may be at the given time.

The first type is CURVY. When you think of a curvy body, think Kim Kardashian, Beyonce; little in the middle but they got MUCH back!

Curvy ladies should stick to styles that skim, NOT cling to their hour glass proportions. Any items that are bright colored and have ruching probably are not the best fit for curvy sistas.

Curvy sistas should stick to v-neck blouses, sheath dresses, structured blazers, boot cut jeans, slim shirts, and capped sleeve dresses.

Curvy sistas should also rely on Spanx or some sort of support undergarment.  These undergarments pull everything together and keep everything in place and CURV-A-LICIOUS!

If you're a curvy sista, try these suggestions and you're sure to be a head turner.

Visit us again to read about appropriate clothing for our diva, fashionista sistas blessed with the birthing hips a.k.a. wide hips!



Rachel Bilson's doing it, so is Reese Witherspoon, Kim Kardashian, January Jones and Olivia Palermo just to name a few. What exactly is it they are doing, you may ask? They're going GREEN! Green with utilitarian style army jackets that is!

Utilitarian style fashion is back with a vengeance this fall season. Military inspired clothing is popping up all over the catwalk and the sidewalk. This seaon diva fashionistas will be rockin army jackets with distressed denim, skinny jeans, dress pants and even cute little minis.

Want to get in on the trend? Try Nordstroms, Neimans and any other department store that cares fine, divalicious fashions. If you're not feeling like going the high end department store route, stores like Target and even Wal-Mart are coming out with their own versions of this to-die-for style. Hit the Neimans, Nordstroms, Target or Wal-Mart rack to make the utilitarian style look a look all your own.

Another look you'll see this season is a more feminine take on combat style boots. The styles vary from below the ankle, above the ankle, to the knee and to the thigh if you dare. Other takes on the combat boot that will rock both the runways and sidewalks alike is a peep toe style combat boot.

Whatever look you choose, just make sure you make it all your own.

Keep it divalicious ladies!
