Contrast tones colorblock dress ($69.95, eshakti.com).
If you’re like me and find it hard to find “your” size, try a fashion customization website that allows you to modify original fashions to suit your personal style and fit requirements. eShakti, for example, allows shoppers to insert their personal body measurements, ensuring a custom garment that fits like a glove. In addition, the site allows you to alter a neckline, shorten the skirt, change a sleeve style, or allow for more room on top. The options are endless.

4. Try something different
I think we’re all guilty of this: We find what we think is the one thing that looks really good on us and stick to it. But that can get kind of boring. If you tend to wear the same styles day-in and day-out, it might be time to step out of your comfort zone and try something different for your body type. Why not try shopping with a friend that has a totally different style than you (as long as it’s cute!)? They might help you see tons of silhouettes that offer a flattering look, but which you might not have considered up until now. For example, a simple summer look that elongates the body and offers a chic, everyday look is a maxi dress. AND you can score them at every price point! So whether you have $40 to spend at TJ Maxx or $100 at Bergdorf’s (yeah, really!), you basically have no excuse NOT to try this trend out.
