Dressing by your body shape

Dressing should be done according to body type and that is the USP of trendy fashion statement. Be it fall or autumn, dressing according to body shape is the way to look attractive round the year. The most common body types are apple type, pear type, hourglass shape, rectangle shape, and wedge shape. Learn here how you will enjoy the best of your body shape and those items are strictly no-no for you.

Apple shaped body

·             Your USP is: Those good shaped legs!

·        Your aim: lengthen the upper body, displaying your legs, and hiding mid-section bulging, and extra width of shoulder.

Do not use oversized tops; instead wear short skirts, v-neck wrap type tops, and low rise jeans. Never bring focus on your waist. You must use belts at waist upper. Do not emphasize on your heavy mid section. Great example of apple shapes celebrity is Jennifer Hudson.

Pear shaped body

·              Your USP: torso, shoulders, and even stomach

·        Your aims: displaying arms, adding shape to upper body, and hiding wide hips.

Do not wear attire that focus on your thigh and hips. Instead prefer wearing strapless dress, boat neck tops, cowl and square shaped necklines, a- line skirts for camouflaging wider hips, and straight leg jeans. Contrast wear like light color tops and dark colored bottom wear will look better on you. One of the best examples of celebrities with pear shaped body is Kim Kardashian.
