While we agree that there are no rules in fashion, no such dos and don’ts, but choosing silhouettes to work for your body type does make a big difference. Read on to find out which shape category you fall under. Because, we believe that if there’s one underrated style skill out there, it’s dressing for your body type.
THE GOAL: Accentuate by highlighting your waist
Choose V-neck tops and scoop necklines, and avoid shapeless styles. Key silhouettes include pencil and A-line skirts, wrap dresses, wide-leg pants, high-waist jeans and belted jackets.
THE GOAL: Elongate your silhouette
Avoid tiered, ruffled skirts and high-waist pants. Key silhouettes include knee-length dresses, A-line skirts, skinny or straight jeans, cropped pants, V-neck tops and longer jackets.
THE GOAL: Balance your figure
Opt for tops and dresses with shoulder details (like cold shoulder or ruffles) for a proportional look. Key silhouettes include A-line skirts, boot cut pants, high-waisted jeans, peplum tops and fit-and-flare dresses.
THE GOAL: Create the illusion of curves
The belt is your friend. Key silhouettes include high-waisted skirts and a wide range of dresses from body-cons to the classic fit-and-flare.
