Gretta's Got It: Body Shape
It doesn't matter what body shape you have, Gretta has got the tricks to make any body fit into fashionable clothes this season.
WSVN -- Gretta Monahan: "We have all heard this one before, 'Dress for your body type,' but here is the thing, not every style works for every body, so I'm going to show you three key styles that work for every figure, in every size."
Bree is a size two, Vanessa is a size six and Jenny is a 14. They all are the same size, but that will not hold them back from wearing the hottest trends.
Gretta Monahan: "Looking for a miracle, then the first thing you will need is a wrap dress. The look took off in 1976 by famous designer Diane Von Furstenberg, and it has been working miracles ever since"
And here each of the girls is wearing a colorful printed wrap dress in a different size. We paired this look with black tights and black pumps.
Gretta Monahan: "It works because it ties and fastens to the side, and this criss-cross diagonal always minimizes the waist. And a little secret for you small busted girls, always get the help from your favorite push-up bra."
Gretta Monahan: "A few more tips when you are out there buying a dress. Number one, length is always just below the knee. Number two, on the sleeve, go three quarters length. It always works. And, number three, you want to go A-line all the time. It is always sexy and always flattering."
For both fuller and slender figures, it creates curves where you want them.
Gretta Monahan: "My next miracle, the pencil skirt."
We went from basic black, pairing it with a fun and fitted leopard top, black tights, and black pumps to complete the look.
Gretta Monahan: "And this season's high-waisted version will even make petite girls look long and tall, and the flat front design will help to not accentuate any belly bulge."
Gretta Monahan: "For the most sexy slenderizing look around, pair your little classic pencil with an opaque black tight."
It's a great look for the office or a night out after work.
Gretta Monahan: "Everyone knows that no wardrobe is complete without a perfect pair of black slacks. My favorite pair that works wonders every time, the editor pants by Express.
The fabric and cut gives you a flawless fit from size zero on up. Our perfect pant works wonders with a white collar shirt and a red, fitted V-neck sweater, and hot ankle boots make this look modern and hip.
Gretta Monahan: "With the curvy girls, I'm anti-pockets. Why add the bulk? Long and lean from hip to hem, this pant works on everybody, from petite to tall it hangs beautifully without being oversized or frumpy."
Gretta Monahan: "So now you see you can be a perfect 10 no matter what your size. I'm Gretta for Gretta's Got It."
