Monday Work Wear: {Find Your Perfect Fit + A GIVEAWAY!!}

Did you know that finding the ultimate outfit, the one that makes you walk with a little swagger, has nothing to do with the label? It has nothing to with the price or where you bought it either. The secret to the ideal ensemble?? The fit!! But the daunting task of sifting through racks of garments or spending hours perusing websites to find the perfect piece is never fun.

That’s why I partnered up with ModaMi, the personal shopping site that helps you find the right dress and most importantly, the right fit for your body type. This whole technology thing can make shopping a lot less daunting and I like it. When you register at ModaMi, first they’ll ask you to take a quick quiz about your style, body shape, and life. They’ll then pull all the items from your go-to stores that you already love, but will find what works best for you based on the details you’ve provided. It’s like your own {free!} personal shopper!

This week ModaMi is focused on summer appropriate workwear. Here are some of our favorite options for various body types.

For a more covered-up look in the office {will someone turn down the AC!}, we adore what showed up in the shop curated for women with a martini figure. In order to balance out a broader top half and slim hips, go for looser fitting garments. We’re obsessed with baggy silk pants that cinch at the ankles paired with a flowy basic tank. In order to stay away from looking to frumpy, make sure to pair some sexy heels and killer accessories with your outfit. I’d also be careful with a blazer. Look for one that is well-tailored and defines your waist nicely {no shoulder pads!}.

For my curvy gals, finding the perfect look is all about defining your shape and showing off your assets! A knee-length skirt, a cinched waist and a statement necklace are going to accentuate all the right places. A pretty print top and a bright accessory are also going to make a strong statement. I love the neon print in the floral top above paired with the art deco style necklace!

I can attest for women with a column shaped body: equal shoulders and hips with stems for days, that it actually is difficult to find pieces that give you a shape and definition. With Modami, it’s so simple. They got this one down! The go-to workwear outfit they picked for me is a wide leg trouser to add some bulkiness to the bottom half, a chunky necklace for balance, and a basic tee to enhance long arms. Done.
