Wardrobe Essentials Style Advice Perfectly Pedia Passport

Putting together a perfect wardrobe is only possible if you know where to find clothing that will fit your body type well. Style and fashion are two different things. Style is timeless, fashion is not. Clothing is like a second skin and could magically accentuate your body’s strong points. If you know what body type you have, you can emphasize your strong points and camouflage your weak points.

Your style is determined by:
  1. Body line. Is the silhouette round or straight? What parts should be emphasized and which are better camouflaged?
  2. Proportions. To what extent is the body in balance? Are the different body parts in proportion or are some body parts more present and others less?
  3. Height and bone structure.
  4. Personal style. Do you prefer a classic, sporty, casual chic, romantic or for example a more business style?

Fashion is a term that is used to describe a popular style or practise especially in terms of clothing and footwear. Fashion will be influenced by many social attitudes and will reflect popular opinion and preference. It will vary depending on what is current in popular culture and will be influenced by things such as music, film and art. For this reason, fashion will change every few months or years before being replaced by another fashion trend. That is why we like to pay attention to wardrobe essentials at Perfectly Basics: they are the building blocks to a solid and functional style. These garments are simple, versatile and can be worn with almost anything, at any time of the year. And if you find the styles that matches your body type you will enjoy your wardrobe even more!

Although every body is different, of course, there are roughly 6 different body shapes that can be distinguished. Check the information below to find out what body type you are!
