A-line dresses and fit-and-flare dresses can add the illusion of hips on inverted triangle body shapes. Straight-up-and-down bodies can gain shape with a tailored sheath. V-necks and vertical lines like princess seams give the illusion of height and have a slimming effect.Guys love hourglass shapes. Get the shape with the right dress cut. Click To Tweet

Wear heels that you can walk in with grace and comfortably to look fit and hip. A chic wedge heel or sturdy heel – thanks goodness they are a big trend right now – is much easier to walk in than a stiletto.
