What to Wear for your Body Type

17 July 2012

Lots of women struggle with finding fashionable clothes that suits their spesific body type. LUXO has all the answers and will show you examples of what to wear and what not to wear to work with your body.

You get 5 different body types the first being:

Apple Shape

Kate Winslet is the perfect example of a sexy apple shape. When you have a bigger upper body with medium to large breasts.

To balance the body out you can wear dark colours on top and lighter colours at the bottom, tops with three quarter sleeves and deep cut V necks. A line jackets and cardigans with waistbelts will also compliment your figure.

The Pear

Pear shape is when you have bigger bottoms and narrow shoulders with a smaller upper body.

Pear shape body types should wear clothes that compliments the waist area such as tight fitted jackets, crop tops, open wide necklines such as v necks and open colours to compliment your shoulders. High waisted pants are also a good choice.

If you look at JLO and Kim Kardashian, you will get a good idea of how to wear sexy clothes that suits your body.

The Hourglass

This is a very easy body type to work with and play around with fashion. It is a well proportioned body type with average to large breasts, a small defined waist and curvy hips and bum.

Wrap dresses, skinny jeans, waistbelts, trench coats, fitted and flair dresses could all suit this body type and compliment the curves. They can pull off high heels and flats.

The Inverted Pear

Wide shoulders, average breasts, narrow flat bum and narrow hips all contribute to having a inverted pear shape body type. These are athletic body types such as Cameron Diaz and Naomi Campbell.

They look good in harem pants, fitted tailored suits, any type of jean, high neck dresses v neck tops.

The Cilinder

The cilinder can be a masculine shape without much difference between the shoulders, waist and hips. They do not really have curves and can pull off layered dresses, striped shirts shorts, assymetrical hems, skinnies and sandals.
