How to dress according to your body type?

Because all inches deserve to be dressed to the nines!

There are fashion rules and then there are fashion rules that are made just for your body type. And, since every body shape is unique, they deserve a personalised set of dressing rules. But before leaping onto the style hacks, it’s important to know the category where your body shape falls.

Is your body type COLUMN? 

If you have a straight and slender body with minimal curves, then you fall into this category.

What to opt for:

Wear pieces with angular shapes and rounded cuts. Include fluted, flared sleeves and skirts in your wardrobe. Go for peplum and sweetheart necklines and don’t shy away from accessorising.

What to avoid:

Fitted garment are a strict no no! Also, avoid wearing clothes with square necklines and dropped waistlines. In addition, when it comes to jackets, steer clear from the shapeless ones.

Is your body type HOURGLASS?

If your butt, hip are proportionate and you have a slim waist, then your body type is hourglass.

What to opt for:

Clean cuts and low necklines are what you should welcome more into your wardrobe! Plus fitted bottoms and jackets. While embracing your body shape, have more wrap-style tops and dresses in your closet.

What to avoid:

Opt for attires that flatter your hourglass figure and move away from baggy clothing, outfits with straight cuts and long jackets that reach below your hip.

Is your body type PEAR? 

The only main feature of a Pear shaped body type is wide hips!

What to opt for:

Cap Sleeves, puff sleeves and Batman-dropped sleeves should be your priority clothing sleeves. Wear more of wrap and empire lines! And, what are the kind of bottoms that would flatter your body shape? A-line, flared skirts and dark hues!

What to avoid:

Stay away from flared and ruffled sleeves! Try not to bring short/crop tops and miniskirts to the outfit combination. And another fashion element to exclude from your closet is ‘pleats’.

Is your body type APPLE? 

If you have a rounded shoulder, a heavy bust area and tiny waist, then your body type falls into this category.

What to opt for:

Opt for low/wide necklines and flared and bell sleeves. And when it comes to dresses and long pieces, go for A-lines, bias cuts and empire lines.

What to avoid:

Ditch high necklines and thicker belts that flatter you wrongly. Also, outfits that are clingy and tight-fitting should look for the exit gate. And what else? Built-in waistlines, stay away from them!

Is your body type LOLLIPOP?

With a heavy bust area, small waist and slim hips, you have a Lollipop body type.

What to opt for:

Low, wide, scoop necklines should be worn along with wide-neck jackets. Plus, go for flared pants and peplum details. Besides, pleats and bold patterns would do you good too!

What to avoid:

Avoid high/turtleneck and high waisted bottoms. Another trend to exclude from your closet is vertical stripes!

Is your body type GOBLET? 

If your shoulders are broad and you have big bottoms, an extremely slender waist and long legs, then your body type is Goblet.
