The Right Clothes for Your Body Type by Tanya ,  Feb 3, 2013
The Apple
For Apples, it's important to define your waist and flaunt your killer gams. A tailored blazer keeps things nipped in and structured on top while a beautiful, flowing midi skirt balances out your upper half while skimming your hips and showing off your legs.

The Pear
For ladies with a bodacious lower-half, clothes that skim your curves without suffocating them make your top look tiny and your legs look longer. Tea dresses with a full skirt and wide-legged, high-waisted pants lengthen your figure and flaunt that booty.

You've got boobs and a butt and an itty-bitty waist congrats! Now, let the world know what you're working with by showing off all your assets in a longer-length pencil skirt and a scoop-neck top.

The Rectangle 
You are a rectangle if you are well proportioned, have relatively lean limbs and a straight waist.  You're one of the lucky few who can rock slim-fit trousers! Choose a shift dress in a simple, essentially straight-cut, shape.

Figure Flattering Styling Tips

  • Wear your jackets and blazers unbuttoned to instantly appear  slimmer.
  • Always wear a good push-up bra! Lifting your chest will define your midsection and trim inches off your waistline. 
  • You should have at least two wrap dresses in your closet as this dress will work to lift your breasts, define your midsection and make your body look amazing. 
  • Be mindful of your shirt's length. Identify the widest parts of your lower body and always look for tops, cardigans, and blazers that finish above or below that place. Remember, your tops should never end at the widest part of your leg as it will draw the eye across the body and add more width to it. 
  • Higher placed back pockets will always create the illusion of a perkier bottom. 
  • To create a fuller, curvier derriere, wear jeans with pocket details like colored stitching, pleats, flaps, or buttons to add volume, instantly shaping and creating a curvier bottom.
  • Use textures, ruffles, bold patterns, or horizontal stripes to create the illusion of a curvier figure.
  • Wear high heels to slim your hips and elongate your legs.
  • Wear a torsette to slim your waist and shrink up to four belt sizes! Or, try a camiband to elongate your torso, conceal fat around the back area, and cover a muffin top.

Styling Tips for Hourglass Figures

• Make the most of a small midsection. Cinch dresses, jackets and sweaters at the waist. • To elongate a curvy body, wear cardigans or lightweight jackets that graze the hips. • Avoid low-rise jeans. Ones with a fitted waist won't gape at the lower back.

Styling Tips for Apple Shapes

• Patterned tops (geometrics, animal prints) are on trend, and the optical illusion trims the torso.
• Mid-rise jeans will keep your rear covered and guard against the dreaded muffin top.
• Structured shift dresses create a vertical line from shoulders to hem, cleverly obscuring the waist.

Styling Tips for Pear Shapes

• Pair V-neck blouses with wide-leg pants or an A-line skirt to create an hourglass shape. • Look for mid-rise boot-cut jeans with large back pockets and a wide waistband. • Choose jackets that are fitted through the bust and waist but gently flare over hips.

Styling Tips for Rectangle Shapes

Bring out your best:

A structured coat that cinches in with a belt will make you look more curvy. If you’ve a small bust you can get away with tricky to wear high-necked tops.

Best to avoid:

Low rise jeans and trousers can make your torso look too long. Stay away from sheath dresses and stick to styles with more shape instead.
