Whenever women say that they don't follow trends and dress for their body shape instead, I don't really get it.

It's one thing to be a Lauren Hutton-type with a closet full of The Row, who cringes at loud, hyped about things like nail art or neon clutches. But it's another thing to shy away from eye-catching, ultra-popular pieces (crazy printed pants, peplums) because "trendy and body-flattering" seems contradictory. It's not; each of spring's biggest trends has its figure-enhancing capabilities. Click through the slideshow below to see what they are, and why having fun with trends and dressing for your figure aren't, actually, mutually exclusive.
