How to dress according to your figure?
Each feminine silhouette has its own characteristics according to the distribution of curves, the size of the chest as well as the balance between the shoulders and the hips. To highlight the shape of your body, you have to choose the clothes that serve to refine each type of silhouette.
How to dress when you have an A-shaped silhouette?
It is the pear shape or inverted pyramid with buttocks and thighs wider than the upper part of the body. The size can be thin or thicker with a smaller or smaller breast depending on the person. Your splendid assets are your feminine forms and your dress style must highlight the upper body to create a certain balance.
How to highlight your silhouette in A?
You can go for an hourglass shape by putting on loose tops and tight jeans. To create balance, you can wear v-neck or heart-shaped tops or boat necks. In any case, it is the upper part that should attract the attention by playing with the proportions or by choosing models with open backs. You can also dare with attractive patterns and bright colors.
For the bottom, choose dark colors with pants that lengthen the silhouette reaching to the floor, wide pants or A-shaped dresses that blend perfectly with your figure. Waist jackets, princess cuts that reach mid-thigh or wide coats as long as they are short highlight the shape of your body. If you like accessories, you can wear chunky necklaces that reach all the way to the chest and earrings, no matter their size.
