Body shape special with Frockchicks

Curvy, straight up and down, athletic or petite;
all bodies are beautiful, whatever their shape
or size. How dull the world would be if we all
looked the same.

The lovely Hilary Nicholls from FrockChicks
has some helpful advice to help you make the
best of your body shape.

Hilary is an experienced London-based stylist who
loves helping people to enjoy dressing well, by
learning about their bodies. She assures us there is
nothing scary or complicated about dressing
stylishly. A few simple tips and you'll be on your
way to loving your wardrobe, shopping smarter
and avoiding expensive mistakes!

Body shapes can be confusing, so Hilary has
simplified them with the FrockChicks 'Fruit
Salad'. "Fruit is great; everyone knows what a
strawberry or a kiwi looks like. Everyone loves
fruit and has their own favourites; hopefully this
guide to your fruit body shape will be simple and
help you make the most of what you've got!".
