Quick Fashion Tips For Straight Body Types
Create Curves with Color
Wear color of similar or identical brightness on your upper and lower body, while adding darker color around your waist.
- Wear a light colored dress with a wide dark belt.
- Wear a shirt that is lighted colored around the bust/shoulders and dark below the bust.
- Pair it with light colored pants or a skirt.
The key to dressing a straight body type is to proportionally dress the top and bottom of your body while creating a waist. If you are comfortable doing so, you can wear form fitting clothing (such as a tube-type dress) and create a waist by adding a wide, dark belt. However, to create a more curvaceous effect add volume proportionally to your upper and lower body by mixing and matching suggested separates.
Dresses For Straight Body Types
Choose dresses with full skirts, fitted waists and cuts or embellishments that draw attention and add volume (or the illusion of volume) to your bust and shoulders.
Tops For Straight Body Types
Choose tops with cuts, necklines and embellishments that draw attention and add volume (or the illusion of volume) to your bust and shoulders while emphasizing a waistline. When selecting jackets, choose ones with a structured shoulder, flared bottom and nipped-in waist. Jackets that come to the hip-bone are the most flattering on your body type.
Bottoms For Straight Body Types
Look for full skirts with details or embellishment that draws the eye to the hips. Choose pants with flap-pockets and jeans with whiskering at the hips. Boot cut, trouser cut or slightly flared cuts are all flattering to your body type.
Accessories For Straight Body Types
Wide belts, padded bras, body shapers that trim your middle (like Spanx).
