NEW YORK, NY UNITED STATES
NEW YORK, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- In a recent poll conducted at
TeenVogue.com, readers told us that their favorite body part was their eyes,
and least favorite was their behind. Amy Astley, Editor in Chief of Teen
Vogue, then says, "We all have bits we like and bits we don't but my feeling
is that unless you are unhealthily overweight, there is no reason to struggle
against your natural body type. Forget impossible to sustain diet and
exercise regimes and let fashion be your friend: Find the clothes that
flatter your figure and just say no to trends that don't look good, no matter
how 'in' they are."

In 12 pages of fashion, Teen Vogue provides proof that every shape can
look great -- whether you're curvy or slender, an hourglass or athletic. ("Go
Figure," page 94)
TEEN VOGUE TIPS:
ATHLETIC: Allyson Felix, who sprinted to a silver medal in the 200 meter
dash at the Athens Olympics, softens her frame with feminine clothing. "I
love feminine clothes because they're the opposite of what I wear on the
track." Other tricks for the athletic girl: cuffed jeans show off the
shapeliness of well-defined legs; also fitted jeans and heels.
SHORT: High hemlines and tiny jackets are a petite girl's best friend.
Go for the mini-skirt. Also, ankle slimming jeans with beaded ballet slippers
or flat shoes. Subtle accessories let the petite girl show off her
TALL: Slouchy blue jeans are made for long limbs. Another tall-girl
trick -- wear a minidress as a tunic over jeans; tiered ruffles fill out a
lanky torso. Swingy skirts give lanky girls extra curves. Knee-length
knickers and flats are also flattering.
CURVY: Go for bright colors and fun prints on top and slimming, dark
pieces on the bottom. A slim-cut, mid-length coat streamlines curves, while a
wrap top and necklaces draw the eye upward. A trumpet skirt makes the most of
a va-va voom figure. Leave the baggy clothes behind and flaunt what you've
HOURGLASS: Accentuate an hourglass figure with a waist-cinching belt.
Also, high rise jeans are super flattering on a slim waist. Wear looser
shirts and tuck in with slim jeans.
The November issue of Teen Vogue is on sale in New York and Los Angeles on
October 6th and nationwide on October 12th.
