Dressing For Your Body Shape - Part 1

Do you ever shop online for clothes only to be disappointed after you try them on for the first time and realize they don't look quite right? The more you know your shape, the better equipped you are when you go shopping. And no need to dismay, I am here to help you! I am creating a series of blog posts to help women learn how to dress for their shape and this is our introductory post!

If you ever get discouraged by seeing outfit inspiration boards using tiny size clothes, don't get discouraged and think automatically that you can't pull it off. Instead, think how you CAN make it look amazing with your beautiful body shape just the way it is.

For instance, I just posted this relaxed chic outfit in the blog. It looks like either a rectangle or hour glass shape is wearing this adorable outfit. Would that look great on an oval/apple shape? Keep reading...


If you think this outfit is cute, you like it, and yet you discard it because you think you can't pull it off, then I'm going to need you to get rid of those negative thoughts. Like... now.

You can rock this outfit! Yes ma'am. Check it out!

If your shape is Apple/Oval then you would know that skinny jeans are to be avoided because they will make your top half look top-heavy. Instead, how about some straight leg or boot cut jeans to balance the proportions? Dolman tops as shown above are also great for apples/ovals! And here's something to celebrate, accessories are great with any shape or size! Knowing how to dress for your body shape is key.



So find your shape below and start learning about it. I will expand more on this in the other blog posts for this series. In the meantime, go ahead and pin all those cute outfits you see on Pinterest (and on my blog too of course, haha!). This is going to be a self-discovery journey and if by the end I have helped one of you, then my job is done. <3

  1. Thank you for this series. I love great tips for my body type. Although, I won't give up capris. I think it really depends on the style and where they hit on the leg for a body type...don't you?

    1. Hehe Shelly, thank you for your comment. You don't have to give up anything! :) You have to do you. The reason for the suggestion of pear shape women to avoid using capris is because it adds emphasis on the lovely hips and draws the eye to that spot rather than an overall balance. Whereas if it's flared or straight pants it will not look disproportionate and it will look balanced. It's the idea of the whole package being beautiful rather than the lovely hips being the center of attention. :)

  2. I am a petite woman with biggish hips and pretty much no bust. I have a narrow waist and broad shoulders. Am I a triangle, an hourglass, or some strange mix of both?
