Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be covering what style of clothing works best for your body shape.
This one is going to discuss dressing for an apple shape body.
So what is an apple shape?
Your shoulders are normally wider than your hips
Very often you don’t have a defined waistline
Your hips and thighs are smaller than the top part of your body.
Quite often you will have thinner arms and legs
Maybe a flat derrière
Extra weight in your tummy area
Help is here! Below are a few styles that will help you see what works well. Of course, while I would love you to buy them from Covered Perfectly, they are just used as an example, you should wear whatever you feel comfortable in...
Stay away from tops that end at the middle of your tummy.
Longer is better as they elongate your body.
You should definitely stay away from boat neck and high neckline tops. They will make your shoulders look wider. Avoid short sleeves or cap sleeves, they will give too much attention to your shoulders.
The ¾ length works, as do long sleeves and flared sleeves.
Draw attention away from the tummy area by emphasizing your bust.
Gathers at the bust while giving you the perfect drape
Wear tops that flow downwards, like an A-line, empire waist or a high-waistline
Empire waist to help define the lower area.
Interestingly a Peplum top will also work for you,
especially with a dropped waist.
Lower waist to define the hip area
Plus, an asymmetrical hem will help, as again, it will bring the eyes downwards.
Choose a V-neck with the asymmetrical hemline
Create lines – a vest will work for this or wear a scarf hanging loose in two lines. Don’t have too much going on above your bustline.
Creating lines also gives a slimming effect
