Rectangle: Those with a slim, athletic shape tend to have minimal definition between the bust, waist and hips. Look for dresses that give the illusion of a curvier figure—trick the eye with ultra-fitted styles featuring rounded necklines and flattering embroidery, or fit-and-flare frocks that flow easily over the hips.

Apple: Those that are top heavy likely have broad shoulders and a wide torso. To look leaner and longer in the midsection, shop for two-tone looks that are darker on top for an instant slimming effect, and dresses that slightly flare out to help balance out your bottom half with the top.
