“The perfect outfit does not exi…” Stop right there! It’s time to re-think how you are shopping for clothes and prove to yourself that not only does the perfect outfit exist, but also that it’s possible to have a closet full of perfect garments made for your body type!
What does your checklist look like today for buying clothes? Personally, I always used to focus primarily on picking clothes with a nice color, beautiful design, and the right size.
But what about paying attention to the right cuts or silhouettes based on our body types? Some clothes may look amazing on a mannequin, or our best friends, but then when you try it on you think… is it really me? Why does it not fit me perfectly if it's the right size?
Well, it's not your fault girl!
Clothing is not only designed to adorn the body, but also emphasize our favorite aspects of our bodies to create a visual balance.
Now, the moment you’ve been waiting for…
What to wear according to your body type?
1. Hourglass Body
Your shoulders and hips are about equal width and a narrower waist. So we’ll need to concentrate on that! Focusing on accentuating your waist is the primary objective when dressing up.

2. Inverted Triangle Body
Your shoulders are the broadest part of your body, so we should focus on giving your hips more volume and accentuate the waist that way we can balance your silhouette!

3. Rectangle Body Shape
Your shoulders, bust, and hip measurements are fairly uniform. One of the biggest perks of having a rectangular body shape is that you get to choose which assets you want to play up. If you’re looking to create the appearance of curves, you’ll want tops that accentuate your top half and give shape to your waist.

4. Apple-Shaped Body
As a general note, we recommend looking for pieces that accentuate your shoulders, neckline, or bust. Tastefully, of course.

Your hips and thighs are wider than your shoulders and bust. Therefore, adding more volume to your upper part of the body is the perfect balance for your body type.

3 IMPORTANT TIPS TO TAKE IN CONSIDERATION:
- Balance your shoulders, bust, waist, and hips. Body shape is almost entirely based on your bone structure, not your weight.
- Use lines to focus the eye where you want it to go. They can help you create curves, lengthen, or emphasize your favorite parts of your body.
- Think about color. Your eye is also drawn to patterns and light, bright colors more so than solid dark colors.
