Woylaa.com – As discussed in the previous post, many of notable celebrities do not have an ideal body curve (hourglass shape). However, they always look flattering with the right choice of fashion items. If Angelina Jolie and Oprah Winfrey have apple body shape, then Hilary Duff, Cameron Diaz, Rachel Hunter, and some other celebrities have rectangle body shape. What makes this body shape different?
As the name suggests, women with this body shape have busts and hips in approximately the same width, no defined waistline, and small busts (usually measuring from 1” to 8’). Actually, they look no much different from those with hourglass body shape, but they are less curvy with no waistline definition. Therefore, finding the right choice of fashion items for women with this curve is less difficult than for those with apple shape.
The right choice of fashion items: Adding body frame
If you have a rectangular body shape, the right choice of fashion items for you is those that add dimensions to your curve. It means that they must create curve for the upper and lower part of your body. However, make sure that they do not widen your waist. The following are some ideas of fashion items to add the dimension of your figure:
Outfits with varied cuts
Choose tops or bottoms that add the volume to the bottom and upper parts of your body. They may include wide leg (flare) jeans, kimono top, tulip skirt, and many more. You can choose bottoms with details on the hip area, such as casual shorts with ribbon details. Even skinny pants work well for you. To look feminine, you play with full midi skirt, layered skirts, A-line skirts, ruffled and tier skirts.
For semi-casual or formal events, you can choose flare dress with embellishments on the neckline or burst. However, make sure you do not choose too flare bottoms if not balancing them with voluminous tops. Otherwise, they will create top-bottom imbalance.
Outfits with varied Details
To add the dimension, the right choice of fashion items for rectangular shaped women included those with various details like ruffles, tiers, beads, embroidery, and prints. Wearing lots of accessories is also a good idea as long as you do not make it too much. Belts are particularly important to define your waist. Therefore, you can choose tops such as trench coat, dress, and sweaters with belt accents.
As for the other body shapes, belt is the last-minute weapon for a trimming effect and a final touch to your look. Choose dark-colored belts to define the waistline. Alternatively, two-tone empire cut dresses can help to create a waistline. Full-detail outfits enhance the bust area as well as slimming down the waist. Bustier or scoop neck dresses, ruffled tank tops, ruched sleeve blouse or tunics are some of the options.
Other important considerations
Layering technique works for women with rectangular body shape. This is right choice of fashion items for you, as layered outfits add a volume. Every layered outfits can work for you, such as jackets, sweaters, or belted cardigans as long as they can define your waist. Furthermore, you can play with eye-catching colors for accessories, such as shoes and bags. These will distract the attention from your rectangular body.
