Women come in all shapes and sizes, and all bodies are beautiful. Getting dressed is not about trying to look thin, it's about accentuating your shape so you feel your best in your outfit. And that is a whole lot easier when you know what pieces work best for your shape. Most women fall into one of five categories: inverted triangle, pear, rectangle, apple and hourglass. Once you know your shape, you'll know exactly what you're gonna wear. Here are the tips and tricks for those five body shapes.
1. If you're an inverted triangle,
Inverted triangle body traits: shoulders are wider than your hips with narrow waist and hips.
Your assets: legs.
The tricks: mini dress to show those killer legs. Bright on the bottom and dark on the top. Wide-leg pants looks good on you.
2. If you're a pear,
Pear body traits: hips are the widest area of the body. Wider than shoulders and bust.
Your assets: shoulders and those killer abs.
The tricks: add necklace and blouse with ruffles to balance the wide hips. Try bright boatneck top with high-rise dark denim. Long coat that ends below the widest part of the hips.
3. If you're a rectangle,
Rectangle body traits: shoulders, waistline, bust and hips are around the same size.
Your assets: arms and legs
The tricks: button-down shirt, top with collar to flatter your chest. Wear layer to add volume, mid-rise pants or shorts to show off your legs.
4. If you're an apple,
Apple body traits: Hips and shoulders are around the same size, waistline is wider.
Your assets: legs
The tricks: knee-length structured pencil skirt to elongate your figure. V-neck tops to create the illusion of a longer torso. Wear tiny belt at the smallest part of your waist. Monochrome are the colors-winner.
5. If you're an hourglass,
Hourglass body traits: shoulders and hips are around the same size, waistline is significantly smaller.
Your assets: oh that curves!!!
The tricks: actually there's no trick for hourglass-shaped body. Everything just looks good on you. High-rise pants or high-rise skirt with crop top work best to show off that curves.
