“It's really hard to walk in a single woman's shoes -- that's why you sometimes need really special shoes!” Carrie from Sex and the City

One of the most difficult thing's a woman has to deal when getting dressed or going shopping is how to dress for her body type. There is a big misconception that wearing baggy clothes helps conceal any imperfections a woman might have. I can tell you, that is not even close to true. Below are four figure flattering style tips. I hope you are ready to turn heads in a good way!

1. Biggest Fashion No-No - Pairing a baggy, loose shirt on top with a full bottom will do nothing for your shape. You will simply look round. Try accentuating your smallest part by pairing a wide leg pant with a fitted shirt or a miniskirt with a longer top, etc. The boyfriend jean is a great trend that can achieve this look when paired with a fitted button down. Find this jean at http://www.express.com/catalog/search.cmd?form_state=searchForm&x=0&y=0&keyword=boyfriend

2. The bigger the belt, the better - The best kind of belt to slim yourself down is one with a little stretch (i.e. nylon). Wider belts will actually make you look smaller. Carmen Electra pulls this off beautifully!

3. Nude Shoes - The nude-color heel is a top trick in the celeb style handbook. You can wear this shoe with knee-high skirts and dresses and it will elongate your legs nicely. Pick a pair up at VictoriasSecret.com (check out Colin Stewart Nude Platform Pump.

4. Take off pounds instantly - Match your pants or skirt, stockings and shoes and you will instantly appear 5 pounds lighter. Try all black and you will love what you see. Color and pattern is a great way to spice up your wardrobe so if you are also a believer in this, slip on a pair of bright shoes to shake things up.
