A creme color, strapless dress with a black waistband, slightly below the knees would be appropriate for a black tie affair for some figure types. A black belt on a creme color dress will make you look shorter. Since you are 5 feet tall and 140 pounds, a dark color cocktail dress or pants would be more flattering for your height and weight. A tailored LBD (little black dress), slightly below your knees, a floor length dress or black pants with a dressy black top would give you a taller slimmer look. Wear with sheer black hose and black shoes. Draw attention upward with a statement necklace or earrings, an up-to-date hairstyle and flattering make up. Congratulations!
Dressing For Your Body Type
Knowing your body type/ shape is important. In order to look good you need to choose clothing styles that flatter you. Few if any of us have the “perfect figure.”
