Rectangle Shaped

If you’re rectangle shaped, the key to dressing your best is to create the illusion of curves. You can do this by choosing clothing that nips in at the waist and/or adding volume to your hips and chest.

A-line skirts, ruffled dresses, and blouses with peplums are all great choices. Wide-leg pants can also help to balance out your shape.

When it comes to jewelry, opt for pieces that draw attention to your face and neckline. And don’t be afraid to experiment with different hairstyles and makeup looks to further accentuate your features.

Inverted Triangle Shaped

If you have this body type, you’ll want to dress in a way that accentuates your waist and downplays your shoulders.

A good way to do this is to wear tops with v-necks or boatnecks. You can also try wearing jackets and coats that are open in the front and have lapels. For bottoms, stick with darker colors on top and lighter colors on the bottom. This will help to create the illusion of a smaller waist.

Pear Shaped

To dress for your body shape, you should accentuate your upper body and wear clothes that fit your lower body.

To accentuate your upper body, you can wear v-neck tops, off-the-shoulder tops, and jackets. To dress for your lower body, you should wear skinny jeans, leggings, and skirts that fit your body.

Hourglass Shaped

To dress your hourglass shape, look for clothing that accentuates your waist and shows off your hips.

A-line skirts, belted dresses, and form-fitting tops are all great choices. Remember to always keep the proportions in mind if you’re wearing a fitted top, balance it out with a looser bottom.

Apple Shaped

If you’re apple shaped, you likely have a larger bust, waist, and hips, with relatively slim arms and legs. The key to dressing for your body shape is to accentuate your best features and minimize your problem areas.

If you have a large bust, you might want to try a v-neck or boat neck top to draw attention to your face and neck. You can also try a belted top or dress to minimize your waist.

If you have a full midsection, avoid clingy fabrics and opt for something that skims your body.
