Body shapes : what to wear & what to avoid!

 photo bodytypes3_zps1b45378f.jpg Hello lovely readers!
     Today I am going to write about a subject that concerned me alot for years. Body shapes and what clothing fits every type.Your love for fashion, accessories and styling must always be based  on your body shape.
A piece of clothing can make a huge difference to every man and woman,
      I cought myself in the past wanting some clothes that were totaly wrong for me and after I bought and  tryed them on again at home,
 i realised that despite the fact that there were amazing ,they made me look shorter, wider and generaly completly wrong! Through the years i've learned everything about body shapes and the approprier clothing for each one of them in this way I am always prepare to gine advises to anyone who askes me, from friend to popential clients.

    For starters every woman has to look herself in the mirror and be happy with her reflection,
I had trouble accepting myself before and now I realised how stupid i really was. 
I learned that the few things you wish so much to get rid of ,are the things that another woman would kill to have,and that's an absolut  truth. 

Your body type is: Hourglass
Your bust and hips are well balanced and you have a beautifully defined waist. Your have gently rounded shoulders that align nicely with your hips. Your waist is obvious and gracefully curves out to your hips.

  • characteristics
  • Bigger thighs
  • A rounded bottom and hips
  •  A small waist 
  • A full bust

The key to dressing an Hourglass body type is to proportionally dress the top and bottom of your body while accentuating your waist. 

Look for tops that will accentuate your waist and maintain the balanced look of your figure. Look for:

Belted tops.
Tops with banding or nipping at the waist.
Form-fitting tops.
Wrap-style tops.
Tailored shirts and jackets.

Lucky you! You can wear most any bottoms as long as you pair them with the proper top. Try the following:

High-waisted pants and pencil skirts.
Boot cut & straight leg pants.
Skirts that will show off your great legs.
Skinny jeans and pants paired with a balanced top.
Cargos or flap pocket jeans paired with a balanced top.

Your body type is: Inverted Triangle


  •  proportionally larger upper body. 
  • You have broad shoulders, and ample bust 
  • wide back
  • Your hips are slim 
  • and your bottom may have a tendency towards the flat side. 
  • Your waist is subtle  

 The key to dressing an Inverted Triangle body type is to balance your broader shoulders, chest and back with your narrower lower body to create more of an hourglass effect. 

Look for tops that will accentuate your waist and help balance your bust with your hips. Look for:

Narrow v-necks.
Tops with banding or nipping at the waist.
Wrap-style tops.
Tailored shirts and jackets.
Dark colored tops.

Choose bottoms that will enhance your lower body and help balance your upper body. Try the following:

Pants with embellished or flap-style pockets.
Boot cut or wide legs.
Full or A-line skirts.
Cargo pants.
Jeans with whiskering at the hips.

Your body type is: rectangle


  • You have the most common body type. 
  • Over 45% of American women have a Straight body shape 
  • hips and bust are balanced  
  • your waist is not very defined.
  • bottom that is more flat than round.
  • Your lower legs are always shapely and one of your best assets.

The key to dressing a Straight body type is to proportionally dress the top and bottom of your body while enhancing your waist.

Look for tops that will add curves to your upper half and create a more defined waist:

Tops with nipped or belted waists.
Off the shoulder, boat-neck tops, wide V or U necks.
Structured shoulders, princess or flutter sleeves.
Embellishments around the bust and shoulders.
Tops that are full, rushed or flowing around the bust.

Look for bottoms that add curves to your lower half while creating an hourglass effect:

Pants with full or moderately flared legs.
Go for details such as whiskering, embellished pockets & flap pockets.
Full, tiered or bubble skirts.
Cargo or safari pants with pronounced hip and rear pockets.
Mid to low-rise waists with wide waistbands

Your body type is: Triangle


  • You have shoulders that are narrower than the widest part of your hips
  • upper body may be a favourite part of your figure
  • tend to gain weight in your hip area
  • may be self conscious of hips and/or bottom
  • tend to enjoy wearing skirts and dresses more than pants


statement necklaces
shirts with ruffled or puffed sleeves
patterned shirts   paired with solids on the bottom


 a-line skirt

 pants that go out at the bottom – like boot, wide leg, and trouser cuts
 A-Line Dresses
Wrap Dresses
Empire-Waisted Dresses
Pants Are Not Your Friends
Just Say No To Pleats
