An expert shares some tips to customize your wardrobe based on different body shapes:

The apple body shape: Usually characterized by rounded shoulders, a full tummy and average size bust. The weight is carried around the middle of the body with slimmer legs.

Stay away from tapered trousers, cowl neck tops, tight knits and short jackets.

For pear body shape: Pear shapes carry weight around the tummy and thighs and are smaller on the shoulders. Usually a slim waist, top and bottom can be different dress sizes.

Stay away from tight knits, pencil skirts, prints or bright colours on the bottom half.

For hourglass body: Women with the hourglass body have smaller waist, larger bust and rounded hips. It's the easiest shape to dress as most styles will suit the hourglass.

Stay away from large prints and baggy styles

For Lean shape: Lean shapes have a smaller bust and slender hips with a square waist. Although a lot of us envy the lean shape it can be tricky to style as its difficult to get the balance right. Cross over tops and wrap dresses work very well on this shape.
