Getting dressed is a whole lot easier when you know what pieces work best for your shape. Most women fall into one of four categories: circle (thick around the middle), triangle (larger at the bottom), hourglass (curvy but evenly proportioned), and rectangle (straight up and down).
There are all kinds of body shapes – pears, apples, bananas? Well, the thing with layers is, whatever exotic fruit you think your body resembles, you can manipulate them to your best advantage. A little trick or two with the length or the cut, and it will add tons of personality to your outfit.
