WHY THE DRESS: String Beans have the hardest time finding shape where there might not be any. By accenting the waist with a bow or tie you are giving the eye somewhere to land.
WHY THE TOP: Any volume you can add to the arms or accents you can bring to the top will give off the look of a larger top half.
WHY THE SKIRT: A straight skirt with a small flair is great for giving your hips a little bit more volume.
WHY THE BOTTOMS: The best part about being a string bean is that you are long and lean. Show off your length with a higher waisted pair of pants!
