Pear or Triangle

You want to create the illusion of volume to your upper body while emphasizing your waist and not emphasizing your lower body. Once again it is about balance. You can do that with pockets or details on the tops and skirts could be a-line.

Triangle or Pear style secrets

1. Draw eyes up with bold or light or colors or prints on top and darker on bottom.
2. Broad necklines such as boatnecks or off the shoulder equalize your figure.
3. Jackets that are fitted through the bust and waist but gently flare over hips.
4. Flirty cap sleeves balance out curvy hips.

hour glass shape

If you have the hour glass shape do wear pencil skirts. Boot, trouser or straight leg cut jeans and slacks. Tops should show the waist with details or a belt. Fitted dresses that are sleeveless, strapless or with simple form fitting sleeves or even off the shoulder A-line dress will look good. The idea is to create curves which you already have. Jackets that are tailored and have a nipped-in waist and end at the hip bone are what you are looking for. You can also create curves with color.

Hourglass Style Secrets

1 Belt and cinch everything at the small of your waist.
2 Wear jersey not bulky fabrics.
3 Defined shoulders and expose necklines but not cleavage.

Ok so I read the different books that talk about style and fashion and basically they all say the same thing. You have to know what looks good on you and have self expression. It is all about the getting the mix right. We still need a little guidance because there is a lot of junk out there that does not look good on anyone.

If you are busty your style secrets are:

1 Invest in a good bra with sculpted or molded cups.
2 Avoid bulky turtlenecks, high necklines which can make you look heavy or matronly.
3 Wear bold colors and wild patterns on your bottom half only.

What you are trying to do with this Inverted Triangle Body is to balance your top half with your narrower lower body. This is achieved by adding curves to your bottom and creating a more defined waist. You got the legs but don't go too short with the skirt lengths or too low the tops.

Tops and jackets with vertical details, scoop or v-necks narrow your upper body. A nipped-in waist and flared bottom will add curves to your hips. Skirts with details around the hips, that are full or ballerina type and A-line add curves. Wide leg slacks and cargo pants look good on you. Dresses can be fitted coat or safari style with pockets on bottom half.
