What body type are you???

I mentioned last week that there are some key things to keep in mind when you are shopping and taking styles into a fitting room to try on.  One thing I mentioned was keep in mind what body style you are and what looks best on your figure.
So today, I am going to elaborate on finding and knowing your body type.  Click the link below for an article that highlights this topic.  By the end of this short article I hope you will know and understand your body shape and the do’s and don’ts of dressing your body shape.

Want to know what dress style fits your body type?

Dresses come in all shapes, styles, and patterns. We, as women, like choices but, if you are like me, sometimes all of those choices begin to become overwhelming when it comes to picking the right dress for my body style. Often I get into the fitting room with styles that are not right for me, and leave feeling frustrated. By following a few simple steps when you are picking dresses out, you will find there is a way to take the right dresses into the fitting room, so you will have the best options suitable for you and your body type.
1.)  Know your body type.  Curvy, pear shaped, apple shape, hour glass, straight…. there are so many body types out there.  It is important to analyze you body style and make sure you are taking styles in the fitting room that you know are best for your particular body style.  (Stay tuned for next week’s blog for the specifics on each body type and what is best for each)
2.)  Pick colors that work with your skin tone and hair color.  This is a must.  As much as I would LOVE to be able to wear citron (yellowish/green), I cannot wear this color.  I have resolved to not take it into the fitting room because it just brings disappointment.
3.)  Pattern is so specific to a person’s personal taste.  Don’t take patterns in the fitting room that you don’t LOVE.  If you are going to wear it, you need to really love the pattern.
Hope these three simple steps will help you choose the best dress options for you to take into the fitting room.  As mentioned above, I will elaborate more on body type and styles that are best for each in our next blog.

Be Ella: Palazzo Craze

Since we opened back in March, we’ve had a lot of customer favorites…printed tunics, our amazing Slimsation pants, and the list goes on.

But, if any item takes the cake on customer favorite, it’s palazzo pants.

These wide-leg style pants have been so popular with the Be. Ella customers, and we can easily see why.

They are SO comfortable — in a way that you feel like you’re wearing sweatpants instead of actual pants, which is always a plus. And, they are so easy to style. Just pair them with a solid tee or blouse and you’ve got an instantly chic outfit!

So today, we wanted to give you a quick look at some of the palazzo pants that we have in the store right now.

Teal Pebble Palazzo :: $35
The Malibu Pant (Coral) :: $48
Black/White Checked Palazzo :: $35
Chevron Wide Leg Pant :: $35
The Malibu Pant (Black) :: $48

Not only are palazzo’s comfortable and stylish, they are affordable. All of the styles pictured are under $50, which is hard to beat! We have plenty of options that can we worn with the palazzo’s, as well, so come down and let us style you with a great outfit.

Stop by this week to check out our selection of palazzo pants and all of our other great styles. New arrivals almost daily!

(Open Monday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.)
