One of the simplest ways to learn what type of style, cuts and textures look best on your body is to seek out a celebrity, model or person who is regularly photographed that has similar measurements and style preferences to your own.
With that said, I’m tall – 5’10” and while I wearing dresses, I am most comfortable in my jeans paired with fabulously tall heels. So when I began investigating Charlize Theron’s style, I was instantly mesmerized.
Charlize Theron, the former model turned Oscar winning actress has the legs that many of us would die for. Standing at 5’9”, Theron takes advantage of her lengthy assets regularly by wearing skinny jeans and heels. What caught my attention as I was putting together this post is that she doesn’t let her style fade while she travels. Regularly, you will see her donning pumps, a neutral wardrobe and travel tote, along with stylish shades. With some help from her stylist Leslie Fremar (also stylist to Julianne Moore), Theron certainly has figured what flatters her physique.
Aside from her simple, casual style, the aspect of her that I admire the most is her love and compassion for animals. To get to know Charlize a bit better, check out an interview here.

If Charlize isn’t your style doppledanger, take a moment and determine who in the public eye is someone who exhibits the style you admire with a similar body type. Peruse the web or magazines for images and keep them in one place to serve as inspiration for wardrobe choices to experiment with and seek out on your next shopping trip.
