For An Hourglass Friend: Comfortable Style in Earthy Tones

Standard

I have a friend that has a gorgeous, voluptuous hourglass shape. She is having a bit of trouble figuring out what her personal style is and how to better reflect on the outside the kind of person she is on the inside. (Don’t we all have that issue from time to time?)

This friend is drawn to Earthy tones, but lately she’s been liking deep purples and hot pinks. Which is fabulous, because purples and pinks can be really complimentary to earth tones… if you do it right.

I have put together a bunch of different styles for different occasions, hoping to inspire and/or help out my friend.

Here is my take on Hourglass evening wear in earth tones with pops of color. You’ll notice that all of the looks are balanced.

These are some casual looks with Jeans…
If you’ve read the Jeans post or have bought the Body Type eBook for Hourglass you’ll note that I say the best jeans for that shape are going to be high-waist, wide leg jeans. But that doesn’t mean those are the only jeans.
Also, this friend has a huge problem tucking in her shirts. She doesn’t like it. It’s uncomfortable. I get it. I don’t like it either. So I tried to create looks that are still balanced without tucking in your tops. (And I added sweaters, because Fall is coming.)

And here’s sort of a mishmash of other kinds of everyday work wear…
Notice the balance of shape is kept with wide-set straps, bold prints and colors.

I hope you found this helpful! I tried not to be too stuffy, but at the same time I didn’t want to take any limitations too seriously. I didn’t want to push her too far out of her comfort zone, but I still want her to embrace her shape and mix it up a little.
