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.
