Tip & Tricks: How to dress for rectangle-shaped body

Photo credit : mysuryayoga.blogspot.com

Photo credit : mysuryayoga.blogspot.com

Over the past few weeks I have been sharing the dressing guidelines for different body type, I have already covered the adorable apple body shape, pretty pear body shape, hot hourglass body shape and this week we are going to look at the rectangle-shaped body.

P/S:  If you’re not sure about your body-shape, you may take a quick shape-finder quiz at here to find out more :)

As a quick reminder you have a rectangle body shape when:

  • Your shoulders, waist and hips are all about the same width
  • You have a straight-up-and-down figure & do not have a lot of curve
  • You have little or no waist definition
  • you have a small / average bust
  • You have a flat hips, tummy & bottom

Tips #1 – Tops & Dresses: Create curve & add dimension to your bod

  • Look for bust-enhancing necklines such as scoop-neck, V-neck, sweetheart tops, bustier tops & off-the-shoulder tops that wider up your top which tricks the eye into making your waist look smaller
  • Choose tops that add more curves on top. For example, tops with ruffles & pleats, frills & bow, breast pockets, front panels. or embellishment at the bust
  • Choose tops with Lace, pleats and ruffles details along the shoulder and sleeve area
  • Make sure these details are placed on top – shoulder to bust area to avoid highlighting your waist

Tips #2 – Tops & Dresses: Define your waist

  • Any type of dress that adds definition to your waist is a must-have for rectangle body shape. In example, wrapped dress, empire cut waist, nipped pencil dress, belted tops & dresses
  • Add belt to your waist to create more of an hourglass figure
  • Avoid stiff and shapeless dress, they only emphasize your rectangle body shape

  • Choose Peplum jackets or belted cardigan that create fit and flare at your midsection.
  • Wear long jackets that end right below the waist or stop at the hip to create a lean look
  • Avoid very short jackets that end above your waist, as they will emphasize your straight waist.

Tips #4 – Bottom: Create a girly shape

  • To give the illusion of more curves, choose skirts that provide a girly shape – A-line skirt, tulip skirt, bubble skirt, ruffle skirt, pencil skirt, flares skirt, etc
  • Look for pants that add curves to your lower half while creating an hourglass effect. In example, Skinny pants, slim fit jeans or pants with moderate flare
  • Avoid big flares and cargo pants, which can make you look more boyish than you are

Tip & Tricks: How to dress for hourglass-shaped body

This is continuation article on how to dress for your body type, in this article we are going to look at the hourglass-shaped body.

P/S:  If you’re not sure about your body-shape, you may take a quick shape-finder quiz at here to find out more :)

As a quick reminder you have an hourglass body shape when:

  • both your upper and lower body are equal in size but your midsection/waist is much narrow and clearly defined
  • Your shoulders are in proportion with hips
  • Fuller and curvy bust and bottom to contrast with the smaller waist
  • You have shapely Legs or bigger thighs

Tips #1 – Tops & Dresses: Highlight your shape & waist 

  • Look for tops & dresses that will accentuate your waist like wrap tops, belted tops, or tops with banding or nipping at the waist, it helps to pull the fabric in at the skinniest part of your waist, drawing the focus to your waist without adding any extra volume to your chest.
  • Look for fit and flare pieces from your casual tee shirts to your blouses and dresses to show off you curves, and opt for stretchy material too if you have a flat tummy
  • If you have a flat tummy, show off your perfect proportion and tiny waist with bustier top & short crop top
  • Avoid shapeless baggy tops & jumpers that hide your wonderful waist

Tips #2 – Tops & Dresses: Balance your bust 

  • Wear low, slimming neckline like V-necks, V-neck halters, sweethearts, scoop or wide necks as narrow neckline will slim down your bust and keep it looking balanced. Low neckline helps to draw the eye closer to your narrow waist
  • Stay away from volume-enhancing details on your top like big ruffles, bows, embellishment, pleats, frills, etc since these tend to make your top portion more heavy and it will detract from your waist’s natural narrowness if it is placed on waist

Tips #3 – Jackets: Emphasize your hips

  • Stick with short or cropped jackets that stop just above your hips accentuate your curves in a flattering way
  • Fitted and tailored coats and jackets with waist definition that slim down into the waist will emphasize your figure. Fitted button-under-the-bust blazers look fabulous on you too
  • Look for belted coat, trench coats, or other fits that draw in toward the waist
  • Avoid baggy boyfriend jackets, boxy baseball jacket and shapeless drop-waist jackets that do not show your waist

Tips #4 – Bottoms: Keep Your Bottom Streamlined

  • Opt for classic skirt-cut like A-line skirt, pencil skirt, short straight skirt, full circle skirt, etc. They will cling to your figure around your tiny waist and keep things streamlined.
  • Stick with mid-rise or high-waist skirt & pants to elongate the leg,  low waisted ones only add bulk to your lower half.
  • Opt for pants that have a slight flare and flat front like wide-leg and boot-cut styles. The flare keeps the bottom portion of your leg balance with your wide hips.
  • Avoid skirt & pants with big voluminous pockets, ruffles, embellishments, or fancy pleated on the front or around the hips, remember to keep your bottom simplified
