I've heard them/seen them countless times and you must have as well.
You know - instructions for dressing the "pear shape," for flattering the "boyish" figure, etc.
What I hope to do here is give some practical direction that you haven't seen or heard in any other place. Or maybe I'm just breaking down the "rules" for a more practical application.
This is fairly simple, really. While it's presently very hot outdoors and while I happen to have (what I, personally, consider) a pretty hot shoe collection, I must dress the body I have. And so...
*When your knee is torn asunder - wear flats.
*When your back rebels and twangs a tune as as you cross the floor (which means NO bending over to shave your legs) -
wear long britches.
See, dressing the body you have is a cinch. At least if your body type is "falling apart."
