How To Dress For Your Body Shape.
Every person’s body is (like nothing else in the world), and you’ll never know which clothing styles make you feel great until you try them on.

So we created this handy guide to help you learn how to dress for your body shape and play up your most favorite features with styles you have (or should have) in your closet. But first things first, do you know your body shape?
1. The Hourglass Body Type
The hourglass shape is figured out by/decided by a smaller waist and wider shoulders and hips than the width of the waist. This is one of the most feminine body types and the best way to style it is by focusing on showing off the outline. Hourglasses should wear everything figure-hugging that shows off the smaller waist from pencil skirts to wrap dresses. A trench or jacket that belts at your midsection is a fun option for outerwear for highlighting your hourglass figure.
2. The Apple Shaped Body Type
The apple-shaped body usually is common among older women. This body type is defined by a wider waist area and a stomach so, those with this body type should avoid making that area look even bulkier or wearing form-fitting clothing. The best option for this body shape is to choose A-line dresses, skirts, and pieces that fall from the arms down.
3. The Pear Shaped Body Type
Almost the same as the hourglass the pear-shaped body type has a smaller waist than the shoulders and hips but the hips are the widest part of the body. So, those who have this kind of body should focus on balancing out proportions and draw attention to the upper parts of the body. Wearing lighter-colored tops, prints, and Bardot necklines, while darker-colored bottoms, will draw the attention away from the wider hips and create a balance.
4. The Rectangle Body Type
The rectangle is seen as a straight-line body. The hips waist and shoulders are equally wide so there are no curves to show off. The best way to dress this body type is by choosing clothing that is structured to create a shape and add (total space occupied by something) to the waist down, for example, peplum jackets, tops, and skirts will make this body type look more like an hourglass. Play around with focusing on different parts of your body with cut-outs, sleeveless tops, off-the-shoulder tops, (loved person/very nice person) necklines, and A-line skirts and dresses.
5. The Inverted Triangle Body Type
The inverted triangle body is seen as wider shoulders and a more narrow waist and hips. So, the best way to dress this body type is by choosing pieces that will draw attention from the shoulders. Palace pants and lighter colored bottoms, as well as print bottoms, will draw the attention down. In addition to that tops that draw attention to shoulders, even more, shoulder pads, and puffy shoulder-tops should be avoided.
6. The Triangle body type
Broad shoulders and an upper body that is wider than your lower body are what define the triangular body shape. If you want to bring balance to your look, experiment with A-line dresses, which create in the bottom half. Take inspiration from ’90s music videos and pair (loose, with a lot of material) (things carried by ship, etc.) pants with a crop top, or show off your legs in skinny jeans or leggings.
