HOW TO LAYER FOR YOUR BODY TYPE

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.

 

Shop All She Needs

For Apple Shape (circle):

Show off your best assets, Go crazy with your bottoms and minimal on top. Sticking with darker shades and simple cuts will give you a sleeker look.

The Elena Pants

This would look absolutely cute on an apple shaped body, shows off bits of those fire legs and its detailed enough for a simple top.

 

The Pear Shape

Bring focus to your waist and take the focus off your hips with high waists and slightly tapered bottoms to elongate your legs. Experiment with statement necklines and collars that will add volume to your upper body and bring balance to your figure. You can also go for tops with bold prints and patterns.

The Bella Kimono

This is perfect for the pear shape. Here's why, its bold prints take the attention from the hips and wrapping it to hug around your waist makes it even better.

 

The Hour Glass Shape

If you have a thin waist and curvy hips, show them off? Go all in for that cropped top or a fitted top paired and fitted skirt.

The Leah Skirt

The perfect skirt for that hour glass body. It brings out the shape exceedingly well.
