Straight Body Shape – Get the Look for Under $100!

Fall Fashion Favorites Under $100: Shop Your Shape with a Sophisticated Sweater Dress

In my first edition of Fall Fashion Favorites, we ushered in this gorgeous new season with a sprinkle of pumpkin spice and stylish skater dress to flatter all body types.


Today, we’re going to show you how to put together an equally fab fall outfit that’s as cosy as it is chic.


While almost anyone can rock this look with a few minor adjustments, today’s sophisticated autumn ensemble is dedicated to all the straight body shaped ladies out there looking to cultivate some irresistible curves this season. While the focus of this article is on our fabulous straight shaped sisters out there, the lovely hourglass body shape can also highlight her curves with the tips below!

With fall’s moody color palette, while the classic cable-knit fabric keeps the piece trendy and current. But it’s the bateaux neckline that makes this dress a winner – Boat and Bardot necklines are perfect for straight body shapes, as they emphasize the shoulders and bust while making the waist appear more slender.


Once you’ve picked out a chic sweater dress, it’s time to add definition to your waist. To cinch in your waist and get that lusted-after hourglass frame, all you need is a wide belt. This inexpensive Rock N Roll Belt (Forever 21 – $7.80) comes in an earthy brown hue that will complement your eggplant purple dress beautifully. The metallic studs add interest to the look and a much needed hint of edge.


A belt isn’t the only accessory you can utilise to accentuate the difference between your bust and waist. Check out this intriguing Faux Stone Fringe Necklace (Forever 21 – $8.90). It gently coaxes the gaze downward from its eye-catching black stones to intricate golden tassels. The unusual triangular shape of the necklace broadens the shoulders and sculpts your enviable waist, emphasizing the appearance of an hourglass figure.


Next, add a touch of comfort and class to your outfit with a pair of dark, opaque tights. Not only are they great for upping the formal factor of your look, but a good pair of control-top tights can also further minimise your waist. If plain black strikes you as a little passé, be cheeky with these subtle but sexy Diamond Patterned Tights (Target – $10).

Finish the outfit with fall fashion’s natural partner in crime: a practical but glam pair of boots. The Susan Heeled Booties (Target – $34.99) in cognac tick all our boxes. These attractive ankle boots sport charming laces for a taste of Victorian class, while their faux-suede finish keeps them contemporarily trendy. The generously sturdy 4 inch heels will elongate your legs without the discomfort of stilettos.

Whether you choose to recreate this entire look or decide to mix and match, our fall fashion ideas for straight body types under $100 will keep you (and your wallet) looking good and feeling fab!
