Body shape is all about proportion, and fashion is all about dressing those proportions to look their very best. When you think about body types, don’t focus on height and weight… focus on shape. A slender gal can have the same body shape as a curvy gal, just as a short woman can have the same body shape as her taller friend. And it’s not about trying to look thin; it’s about accentuating your shape and enhancing what you have so you feel your best in every outfit you own.
Here we are going to describe to fashion according to your body shape
Know Your Body Shape To Wear Accordingly
1-Wider Hips (Pear Body Shape)
Proportionally, if your hips are wider than your bust, you generally have a pear shape. If you are going to wear a pattern on the bottom, it’s best to keep the motif small, like polka dots. To help balance your wider hips, you can wear:
– A brighter, larger-patterned top
– A classic horizontal-striped shirt
– A patterned top paired with a solid dark-wash jean or skirt
Wear dresses that enhance your slim waistline. A-line suits are made for a body like yours. If your kurta does not have slits on the sides, then you can wear it with a churidar. However, if it is open from the sides, then better team it up with cigarette pants. Furthermore, clothes that drag attention to your upper body such as kurtis with embroidery or large prints at the top, and wider necklines will look fashionable and modern.
Your lean waist and upper body are your assets, so style them with printed and colourful kurtis. Do not forget to add a pair of gorgeous heels to your ethnic wear, as it will add more height to your figure.
2-Larger Bust(Apple Body Shape)
If your bust is proportionally larger than your hips, and you consider yourself “top-heavy,” then you’re an apple shape. This means you want to balance your top by highlighting your hips. You can achieve this with:
– Brighter, larger-patterned bottoms (whether skirt or pants) with a solid-colored top
– Horizontal-striped skirts that give the illusion of balance
– A small or tiny print, if you are going to wear a patterned top
Wear suits that are loose on the waist and avoid fabrics that stick to your body. Fabrics like silk and cotton are made just for you. Long and flared kurtas with V- or U-shaped necklines suit your body well, as they help to hide your broad shoulders. And, whenever you wish to wear a fitted kurti, make sure you balance it with a pair of loose lowers like Patiala salwar or Jodhpuri pants. Also, avoid the suits that have heavy embroidery on the top as it will add further volume to your already heavy top.
Well-fitted bottoms like churidars or leggings are just not made for you, as they will accentuate the imbalance between your upper and lower body. So, whenever you wear them, better cover them with long kurtas.
3-Long & Tall (Grace Gifted Body Shape)
If you’ve been graced with the gift of height, it’s time to embrace prints. For those who are curvy and tall or straight and tall, keep these tips in mind:
– Wear larger prints, such as a floral maxi dress or a skirt with an oversized gingham pattern
– If you’d rather not wear head-to-toe prints, break it up by wearing just a large-printed top or printed bottom
– Small prints can work for you as well, but try them in a bold, allover look like a midi or maxi dress or even cute slacks (Any clothing item that’s smaller, like a top or skirt, may appear too proportionally small)
4-Short & Petite Body Shape
If you’re on the petite and shorter side, large prints can overwhelm your proportions. It’s best to:
– Stick to smaller patterns and prints, like mini polka dots and thin stripes
– Try vertical-striped tops to elongate your form
– Incorporate prints with accessories, like a fitted jacket or scarf
5-Hourglass-shaped body (Ideal Body Shape)
A woman with such a figure has equal hip and bust measurements, and a narrow waist. A curvaceous body with long legs is one that can pull off any style of suits with panache.
Your narrow waist is your strongest feature. So, do not be afraid to play with it by wearing trendy belts around it.
wear the currently trending, palazzo pants paired with long well-fitted kurtas, to define your waist. Beautiful anarkalis with an empire line style will also look gorgeous on you. For all those blessed with such a figure, you can fearlessly experiment with your necklines and wear whatever you like.
6-Rectangular Shape (Straight Body Shape)
This shape does not have much of curves. The body is pretty much same in size from top to bottom.
Since there is not any specific feature that you can put emphasis on, you can easily opt to wear almost anything and everything. However, best would be to go for a fitted floor-length anarkali, as it will give an illusion of a curvaceous lower body. Also, pick the ones that have heavy embellishments or embroidery on the top, so as to add volume to your bust area. Strappy kurtis will also look good as they will help to highlight your shoulders.
Do not go for anything too tight or too loose, as it will make your body look absolutely straight. Also, try to look for some bright colours to complement your body shape.
Fashion should be comfortable; if it’s not, you won’t feel as confident, and confidence is always the most important thing to wear.
