Hi, I am Wendy Pepper and I am here discussing the correct formal wear for your body type, and for this segment, we are going to talk a little bit about an important consideration when looking at a dress, which is the different types of patterns that you can consider. So, for Marin, as I have worked with Marin on couple of other segments and I have noted that she has angular features and so I have chosen to put her in a dress that has a plaid and it's also a tweed. So, for me, the elements of that fabric best complement Marins features, and that she has cool skin tones. I like the grey, the sober, it's nice for evening for her. I think that plaid is a very classic and refined pattern, works perfectly with Marins features as well and her height. I put in on the bias, that's also a very interesting trick in terms of creating length and also width and when you have a figure that's tall and thin, interestingly enough, you do want to draw the eye out as well to create the sense of proportion and balance. So, as always, I think it's safe to trim a print in a solid and you can never go wrong with black. I am here with Grace to demonstrate yet another type of pattern application when you are considering a dress to buy for a particular type of body. For me, Grace represents the beautiful opportunity that one has with a petite figure which is to use again organic, rich detail but that it's very carefully applied in very small amounts and in ways that will not overpower the figure. So, if you notice, I love the use of lace when I am addressing that kind of issue and I especially like to break it out and cut it up and re-applicate it on to a dress. In this case, again I like the empire line on a petite figure. So, I concentrated up around the bust line with a red underneath to punch and pop and bring out Graces beautiful skin tones, and I then spread it softly and delicately down the dress and it wraps around and curves around and once again increases the length of the bust to floor ratio, which is always important to consider with a petite figure and the lace again is a good type of pattern to look for if you are somebody that has delicate small features. So, in conclusion print is actually is actually a very important consideration when picking a dress. You have to take into account, the bone structure in your face, the type of hairstyle that you wear and also the proportions of your body type. So, if you are tall and angular and straight, the prints that you choose should reflect that and I believe that a geometric, bold print for a taller person and a geometric softer print a more petite person is what I would recommend and if you are a curvier body type and you have rounder features in your face, then I would go with a more organic floral or lace type of detail. That again was more bold if you are taller and you can take that amount of strength of pattern and keep to the small and delicate if you are more petite.
