What do you wear Ladies with boyish figures?

Similar to a poster who asked about styling tips for hourglass figures, I am looking for suggestions on what to wear when you have a boyish figure (small boobs, no waist). I wear mostly casual stuff (jeans, tops etc) and would like to dress with more feminine skirts and dresses. The tips I read online recommend dresses accentuating the waist but I always feel like a drag with this type of shape. What are your go to items?

Watching with interest. Very much a"boy figure" here.

+1 as to skinny flares.

You can do chunky belts over one size too big cotton top or dtess, if fabric has structure, think tea dress, so that a nipped waist effect is created.

Also pelmet dresses and skirts.

Issima, yes perfect sense. Thanks! How do you accentuate your waist? This is where I fail and often end up looking odd.

Jostrom, I tend to gravitate towards pinafores and empire style dresses as my bust is literally straight down and a tea dress is probably more flattering on hourglass?
