While there is definite value in dressing for your body type, it’s not always that simple. For the days when you can’t be bothered to ponder whether you’re more of an apple or a pear, you can rely on these classics from Lauren Ralph Lauren that flatter every single shape. Really.
3 Spring Styles That Look Good on Everyone
The White Blazer
What makes this particular piece so appealing? Well, it works to elevate just about any outfit, while also hiding any insecurities. In this particular look, the tucked-in top and high-waisted pants narrow in at the smallest part of the waist, and the long blazer skims over the hips to create a streamlined effect. Pair it with nude heels or wedges for extra slimming benefits.
The Cotton Shirtdress
Almost everything looks better with a belted waist—especially a dress that’s already fitted around the torso and flares out at the hips. The button-front style makes this a great piece for busts of all sizes as it lets you control the coverage and subtly highlights the collarbone when left undone. We also love that the stripes on this dress create the illusion of a slimmer middle, angling toward and then away from the waist.
The Cropped Denim Jacket
Flowy maxis may be ultra comfortable, but sometimes they benefit from a little structure. To balance a voluminous dress, top it with a cropped denim jacket. This piece hits at the waist and breaks up the silhouette so you don’t look as if you’re drowning in fabric.
