To begin with, it’s important to understand your body shape (see our body shape blog HERE) and learn what styles, cuts, and silhouettes work best for you. Once you have that understanding, you can then dress to flatter your figure.
Armed with this information, you are on track to choose clothes that accentuate your best features by creating a balanced and proportionate look.
BASICS: Creating a wardrobe with a strong foundation of quality basics is essential if you want to dress to look good and feel great. Invest in well-fitting, timeless pieces like a tailored blazer, a classic white shirt, a little black dress, well-fitted jeans, and versatile shoes.
A Northern Tide shirt looks fabulous over jeans, leggings or shorts and are available in a range of colours. These items can be mixed and matched with other pieces to create various stylish outfits.
Tip: Tuck in your shirt to accentuate the waist & balance the hip. Leave out to cover up a little and provide a sleek look across the body.
THE FIT: Regardless of the style or price of your clothes, a proper fit is crucial. Ill-fitting clothes can make even the most expensive outfit look sloppy. Ensure that your clothes hug your body in the right places without being too tight or too loose. A well-fitted outfit instantly elevates your overall appearance.

COLOUR: Don’t be afraid to add colour and patterns to your wardrobe. Experiment with different shades to find what complements your skin tone.
Northern Tide’s Jersey Fishing Dresses offer a variety of patterns to ensure you look amazing whenever you wear one. Patterns create movement and a ‘slimming’ effect.
TIP: Remember to balance bold colours or patterns with neutral pieces to avoid overwhelming your look. Team your Jersey Dress with a Northern Tide scrunchie or neutral coloured hat or thongs.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL: Paying attention to the little details can make a big difference to your overall appearance. Accessorise appropriately, by choosing the right shoes, hat and jewellery to complement your outfit. Ensure your clothes are clean, ironed and in good condition. These small efforts can significantly enhance your overall style and make you look and feel amazing.
