Being tall and slender just might be the most enviable shape - the vast population of super models sport it, of course. So if you are lucky enough to be a column shaped, make the most of what you've got with functional fashion.


Get the trend for your shape: Column

Graphic: Create the illusion of an ultra feminine waist line by opting for a graphic print dress that highlights the torso à la Anusha Sharma. Keep the hemline short to draw attention to ultra sexy gams.

Metallic: Play safe with this trend else you'll an extra from a failed futuristic flick. Opt for fluid silhouettes for a Greek goddess look. Take a cue from Deepika Padukone and make sure to add a skinny belt around the waist to avoid looking like you've worn a curtain.

Androgynous: Bordering towards a masculine look is always tricky; however master the tailored look like Lakshmi Menon by adding a feminine element with bows or shimmer. Team black cigarette trousers with a light coloured jacket that adds a break to your look. For girly girls, adapt the trend by opting for a tailored dress with tux collars.

Playsuits: Asymmetrical necklines are also a great way to accentuate your upper half, while the shorts highlight your legs like Priyanka Chopra. Perfect for column shaped girls, playsuits cinch around the waist dividing your body into equal portions.
