What is Your Body Type?
We women are lucky to have so many choices when it comes to clothing. Look at men’s stuff – other than pant hems going up and down and fit being looser or tighter, for the most part the silhouette of menswear is the same. But with so many options, shopping can get overwhelming. How do you sort through all the stuff out there? The best way to find the most flattering pieces is to dress for your body type. Do you know what type you are?
That’s me. This body type has a smaller bust and waist in comparison to hips and behind.
What to Wear
Tops: Anything to highlight the slimmest parts of your body. I gravitate toward empire waist and tie waist tops and dresses. They accentuate my waist and cover up my larger areas on bottom. I stay away from dolman sleeves and drop shoulder sleeves as they are not flattering to my shape.
Pants: Wide leg pants are a great option. The high waist accentuates a smaller waist and the wide pant balances your legs out. Skinny jeans – the trick with these is to wear a longer top.
Skirts and dresses: A-line is the most flattering cut. It highlights my slimmest areas and hides the bigger ones.
