Quick Fashion Tips For Spoon Body Types

Below are Quick Tips for Spoon Body Types. The objective of dressing your body type is to create the illusion of an hourglass figure. No matter what your weight is, balancing your body creates the most pleasing effect.

Create Balance with Color

Look for clothing that is lighter around the bust and shoulders. Your problem area is most likely your tummy. Shirts and dresses that are darker in mid-section and lighter on top will create the most flattering effect.

Clothing Shapes

The key to dressing a spoon body type is to draw attention to your upper body while deemphasizing your tummy to create a balanced appearance. Your legs and shoulders are two of your best assets. Strapless dresses and tops look good on you and you can easily pull off shorter skirts with your great legs. However, to create a more curvaceous effect add volume to your upper body by mixing and matching suggested separates.

Dresses for Spoon Body Types

Choose dresses with empire waists and a-line skirts. Look for dresses with cuts or embellishments that draw attention and add volume (or the illusion of volume) to your bust and shoulders. Stay away from dresses that have excessive pleating or fabric below the waistline and instead choose silhouettes that skim your figure.

Tops for Spoon Body Types

Empire waist tops are the most flattering on a spoon figure because they emphasize the smallest part of your torso. Do not choose tops with excessive fabric beneath the empire waist, instead choose silhouettes that are more a-line and gently skim your figure. Choose tops with wide necklines and embellishments that draw attention and add volume (or the illusion of volume) to your bust and shoulders. When selecting jackets, choose ones with a structured shoulder and nipped-in waist that gently skim away from the body and end at your hipbone.
