Body Type Series | Straight Body Type

September 28th, 2022 by

Let me set the record straight about straight body types. (I’m so corny!). Seriously, though. So many women with this body shape struggle to dress their bodies in a flattering way without recognizing that they are secretly supermodels. Sure, supermodels may have more inches when it comes to height and fewer inches everywhere else, but […]

How To Wear A Midi Dress Over 40

September 26th, 2022 by

I’m not typically a fan of wishy-washy trends. I like a dress that knows what it truly is and isn’t afraid to express it. A mini, for example, knows it’s short and sassy, while a maxi is long and breezy. But a midi? It can’t seem to make up its mind. Fortunately, I decided to […]

How To Dress A Full Bust Over 40

March 14th, 2022 by

Sometimes we can’t see the forest for the trees. Or the body type for the curves. Let me explain. When we talk about body shape, we are talking about the body silhouette or the outline. But you can’t blindly follow the guidelines for your body shape while ignoring other key elements of your body, like […]

Nada Saves Style | I Fix Your Outfits

March 7th, 2022 by

Styling is my superpower. It’s my only superpower, just in case anyone accuses me of bragging. I mean, I can’t do push-ups or dance or sew or craft. I’m an average cook and a mediocre homemaker. But I can style. And write about style. It’s always been my thing. Maybe I should get a cape… […]

How to Style a Sweater Over 50 | Warm Winter Outfits + Outfit Formulas

February 24th, 2022 by

I know you’re getting tired of your winter clothes. Or is it just me. It’s the end of February and I’m just totally over winter. And I live in Florida. We have only had it for about a week. 🙂 I was especially getting bored of sweaters. Yawn.  Sometimes, a chunky knit sweater can seem […]

Wardrobe Styling With A Friend | Pear Shape | Tall

February 20th, 2022 by

Sometimes, we just feel stuck in our style. We buy and buy and still feel like we have nothing to show for it and so we end up wearing the same pieces in the same ways, while other pieces, which once held so much promise, languish in our wardrobe, unloved. It’s really kind of sad […]

Best Outfits for a Pear Shape | Style Dial Orange

February 14th, 2022 by

Here I go again, referring to a body type as a fruit. In The Style Dial body type system, we use colors and not inanimate objects, but since so much of the world is familiar with the term pear-shaped, I’m throwing it in here for clarity’s sake. But just to be clear: You are not […]

How Long Should Your Clothes Be?

January 24th, 2022 by

Body type is only half the puzzle. I know I know that I talk about it all the time, and that’s because knowing your body type is critical, but it’s still not going to yield flattering results in your outfits unless your clothes also FIT. And that’s where the Fashion Fit Formula comes in. If […]
