How to Dress an Apple Shaped  

Posted in

If You Are Apple Shaped

* Don't wear empire-waist tops.

* Wear blouses that fit at the bust, but are not too clingy. Menswear is trendy this season and will give you the fit you desire. "The delicate balance of masculine and feminine touches also looks great with suits," writes Suze Yalof Schwartz, of Glamour magazine.

* Pay attention to the collars of tops — your best bets are v-neck, boat, and collared. "Attention to detail around the neck area elongates the neck," adds Yalof Schwartz.

* Match your upper half with pants that are either normal or wide-leg to create the perfect proportion.

* Wrap tops and dresses are ideal for your body type — thank goodness for the crossover effect.

* Invest in a long coat as the weather begins to get a little chilly.

* Choose long-lapelled jackets.

* Wear darker colors on the bottom, and play with brighter and lighter colors on top.

* Don't wear turtlenecks as they make large busts appear larger.

* Higher waistlines will pull in any excess weight.

* Pair any great outfit with a complimentary pair of shoes, whether they are wedges, flats or chunky heels.
