We’re all for trying out trends, but there’s something satisfying (read: ultra-flattering) about shopping based on what looks best on your body type. Whether you’re tall or short, straight up and down or curvy all over, here’s the best style of dress to try out this fall.

If You're an Hourglass, Try a Maxi Wrap Dress

You and your gorgeous proportions can pull off almost anything, but for the most flattering effect, choose a wrap dress that lets you show off your curves. This style is almost universally flattering, meaning you don’t need pinup-like measurements to look amazing in it. Worried about showing too much cleavage? Here are three tips for wearing this style if you have big boobs.

Get the look: Halogen ($99); Eloquii ($130); Velvet by Graham and Spencer ($218)

If You're Apple-Shaped, Try a Drop-Waist Dress

The key is to look for dresses that drape without drawing too much attention to your midsection. (No, we aren’t talking about a potato sack.) The flouncy hem—and all-over print—also draws the eye up and down…and away from your hips.

Get the look: Universal Standard for J.Crew ($130); Eliza J ($168); Zadig & Voltaire ($398)

If You're Petite, Try a Sweater Minidress

Too much fabric can overwhelm your frame, so stick to shorter lengths that you can wear with tights as it gets colder. Since the hemline is high, stay away from tight-fitting styles, which could come across as a little too sexy. Instead, go with a shift silhouette that’s comfortably boxy and hits the perfect middle ground between tentlike and body-con.

Get the look: Knot Sisters ($90); Three Dots ($98); Neiman Marcus Cashmere Collection ($250)

If You're Tall, Try a Prairie Dress

The more inches you have, the more fabric you can play with. The cropped hem will also keep you from feeling too elongated.

Get the look: The Fifth Label ($118); Lost + Wander ($130); Kopal ($330)

If You're Pear-Shaped, Try a Full-Skirted Dress

Small up top but bigger on the bottom? Look for dresses that follow your frame. Opt for a fitted bodice, a nipped waist and a full skirt. The result is fashion magic for those who know how to accentuate their finest assets.

Get the look: 1901 ($129); Eloquii ($163); Gal Meets Glam Collection ($178)
