Best Way To Dress a Straight Body Shape

Introducing the Straight Body Shape, the most common one, also referred to as the rectangular body shape. If you have a straight body then your hips and bust are most likely to be balanced and your waist isn’t very defined. I personally find this type of body the easiest to dress (other than the hourglass shape of course).

The best way to dress this type of body is to balance between dressing your upper part, with your bottom part and as usual define your waist.

 

Best Selection of Tops for a Straight Body Shape:

  • Off the shoulder.
  • Wide V or U neck.
  • Belted waist tops.
  • Embellished sleeves.
  • Boat-neck tops.
  • Flowing tops around the bust/shoulder.

A Guide On How To Dress A Diamond Body Shape

Being a Diamond Body Shape means having a full midsection, which also means you usually gain weight on your hips, thighs, stomach and bum. While on the other hand, your arms and legs are shaped symmetrically.

The key to dressing a Diamond Body Shape is to balance the hips with the bust and shoulders, and create a defined waist.

 

Best Selection of Tops for a Diamond Body Shape:

  • Off the shoulder tops.
  • Belted waist tops.
  • Wide U or V neck.
  • Busy shoulders or sleeves tops.

 

This selection of tops will add more volume to the shoulders and bust, it will help in balancing them with the hips, as well as adding belts to your tops to create a beautifully defined waist.

A Guide On How To Dress A Triangular Body Type

Knowing what body shape you are can help so much in figuring out what types of styles work best for you, to compliment your body type.

Today I’ll be guiding you in how to dress a Triangular Shaped Body (or as some call it The Pear). As a Triangular Body, your hips are larger than your bust and you have a nicely defined waist; so don’t be afraid to show that off!

Starting with the tops, since all the volume is in the hips we need to balance the body to give it the Hourglass Shape. The best way to do that is to add volume to the shoulders and to define the waist. So instead of having large hips you’ll trick the eye toΒ  make it seem like you have a balanced bust and hips with a perfect waist.

Best Selection Of Tops For A Triangular Body Type:

  • Boat-neck tops, wide V or U necks.
  • Off the shoulder tops.
  • Tops with fitted waist.
  • Bright colors and bold patterns.
  • Tops with full or structured shoulders.
