How to Dress That Plus Size Rectangle Shaped Body
Your goal is to create a waist while showing off your legs.
Here is how.
Tops should show off your shoulders and create that waist.
Do so with a top that has a belt or comes in at the waist.
Opt for a fitted jacket or blazer.
If it hits just above or at the hip, even better for creating curves.
Wear wider neck shirts such as boat-necks and off the shoulder tops.
Bottoms should should help you create curves.
Create curves on your bottom half.
Look for flared leg or boot cut pants.
Whiskered, embellished, or flap pockets work for you.
Mid to lose rise pants with wider waistbands.
Create a waist by adding a belt.
The belt should be dark or contrasting in color and/or wide for the best results.
Also working for you:
Pleats, skinny jeans, anything that has detailing and embellishments that can add curves to your body.
What to Avoid:
- Clothes that are tight fitting all over- dresses especially.
- Anything worn on top that is unstructured in the waist area.
- Shapeless clothing.
- Wearing a top and bottom that are both large and flowing. It is best to have one of these slim fitting and the other flowing.
