Shape magazine just shot a fashion feature with Lauren Conrad and Couture In The City thought we would share her style secrets with our readers. Check out these tips she offered Shape’s readers.

Lauren Conrad’s so stoked about her new fashion collection for Kohl’s, she took three lucky Shape readers shopping! From masterfully draped blouses to butt-enhancing skinny jeans, Lauren Conrad’s chic yet super affordable clothing line for Kohl’s, LC Lauren Conrad, has something for everyone. “It’s all about finding silhouettes that highlight the best parts of your figure,” says Lauren. To prove her point, she selected outfits for three women with very different body types – and shared some get-dressed tips we all can use.

Lauren’s figure-flattering strategies

Put the focus on a flat tummy or small waist by choosing fitted jackets and belted dresses.

Conceal wider hips with a longer-length tee or tunic that skims your mid-section.

Opt for patterned or embellished tops to divert attention away from fuller hips and thighs.

Make legs look longer and leaner with simple, solid-hue trousers and dark-wash jeans.

Add width to your shoulders (and balance your bottom half) with soft flutter sleeves.

Lauren’s figure-flattering strategies

Flaunt long legs and shapely ankles with slim-fitting cigarette pants and capris.

Balance a thicker middle by highlighting arms with a halter top or strappy dress.

Consider an Empire-waist dress, which gives your torso a more elongated appearance.

Choose flowy, hip-skimming tops to camouflage a fuller tummy without adding bulk.

Draw attention to your lower body with eye-catching heels.

Lauren’s figure-flattering strategies

Create a more feminine silhouette by teaming a voluminous top with a more fitted bottom half.

Cheat a waistline by cinching a belt in a contrasting color over a narrow sheath dress.

Keep accessories in proportion; delicate bags and necklaces won’t overwhelm a small frame.

Hem your pants on the longer side and pair them with sky-high platforms to add inches.

Amplify curves with tops that have texture, like a ruffled neckline or ruching at the waist.
