Quick Fashion Tips For Spoon Body Types
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.
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.
Bottoms for Spoon Body Types
Look for a-line skirts or skirts that skim your body. Choose pants with simple pockets or no pockets at all. Stick with boot cut or trouser cut jeans. Never wear pants with a tapered leg and go with a mid-rise waist.
Accessories for Spoon Body Types
Chunky necklaces and earrings, padded bras, body shapers (like Spanx) that trim your belly.
