Yarra here reflecting on how quickly time is going by! Finish your year with flair. I hope the following outfits inspire and save you some time as you’re dashing to and from holiday parties and shopping. There’s one outfit for each of the 5 body types. If you’re new to this series, check out the first Looks for Every Body post to learn more.

LFEB_invtr20x40i+20Inverted Triangle
The elegant draping of this outfit creates an unusual silhouette. The Scene Stealer Top (available in Dakota) really is! Worn with the Form and Function Skirt (shown in Tuscan rose) the draping of the pair pull the bulk of the outfit into the bottom 2/3 of the body, great for the inverted triangle body type that wants to downplay broad shoulders.  Top with a modal Digital Print Scarf (by Shawlsmith) to emphasize soft draping even more.

Rectangle
Break up the straight up and down form of the rectangle figure by adding asymmetric hemlines. The Need it Now Sweater (shown in coriander)LFEB_rect20x40+20 over the Look Sharp Leggings (shown in black) creates a fashion forward look that is perfect for a dash to a get-together with friends or a little last minute shopping. Play with color by adding a bright infinity scarf. I love how this turquoise scarf really sets off the coriander of the sweater. Color is really important on cold winter days to brighten your mood!

LFEB_circle20x40+20Circle
City girl you are in this ready for anything outfit! A little top everyone should have in their wardrobe is the Life is Good Top (shown in black) it is practically a tunic falling over the hips. It provides coverage without overwhelming the silhouette and is great paired with Stella’s Ready to Wear Leggings or jeans of your choice! Top with sumptuous Play Your Cards Right (shown in jade) and add an accent necklace in a tonal color to match. 

Triangle
You are one cool cat in this tonal ensemble. The triangle body shape seeks coverage and minimization of the bottom third of the body. The Either Way Top (shown in citadel)LFEB_tri20x40+20 topped with the Point of Interest Cardigan (shown in ash) creates a clean sophisticated line. I love the polish the Slimming Ankle Pants (shown in mink) add to this outfit. If you don’t have any ponte pants this season, run don’t walk to your nearest store that carries Stella Carakasi. You will not regret how versatile these are. They are an item that instantly elevates your look. Accessorize with a folksy necklace like the seed bead one shown.

LFEB_hrgls20x40+20Hourglass
For the hourglass, this outfit is about draping and luxe soft color. The Enigmatic Tunic (shown in dove) is an adventure waiting to happen in a tunic. Worn with the Incomparable Pants (shown in shadow) the look is subtle and dramatic! Is that possible?! Yes, with these soft colors the draping and strong architecture of these pieces create a mood that is like stepping into a soft filtered photo. Add a wrap belt with a touch of metallic and a chunky crystal or topaz necklace and your look will be off the charts.

Where ever the holidays take you arrive in style! Happy holidays!
