FASHIONS Magazine offers guidelines for picking perfect dress

NEW YORK -- There is a perfect dress out there for you. But your version likely will be a little different from your mother's, sister's or best friend's.
The November issue of InStyle magazine offers a "best-dress guide" for several figure types:
UBare shoulders and revealing necklines draw attention above your waist -- and away from wide hips. A darker, flowing skirt that skims minimizes your bottom half.
UIf you have a full bust, try beading or flounce to play it up but still give full coverage. Or, a keyhole detail at the neck makes you appear swanlike.
UIf you have shapely legs, flaunt them! Try short dresses paired with patterned hose and high-heeled sandals.
UCelebrate an hourglass shape in a dress that follows your curves without clinging to them. An A-line shape dress or a pattern print keep the eye from resting on one body part in particular.
UBoyish bodies look more feminine in dresses that create a waist using textural fabrics, shirring, belts or trim. Accessorize using "girlie" stuff, such as dangling earrings, flowered shoes or a fringed shawl.
UOpposites are attractive. If you're short-waisted, look for a strong vertical line, possibly a monochromatic look. Also knee-high boots can help elongate. Horizontal lines at the waist will help someone's who is long-waisted appear less so and a choker at the neck also break a long line.
