The Most Flattering Types of Tops, According to a Celeb Stylist

The key features in any flattering article of clothing are that it highlights the areas you want to focus on, conceals those you don't, fits perfectly, uses proportions to the greatest effect, and elongates the body. While it may seem like a tall order for one top, there are a few styles out there that meet all of the criteria you're seeking in one well-constructed package.
