It’s been insisted many times: the secret to looking great in your clothes is to choose them according to your shape. Today, we’re going to discuss one such beautiful but elusive shape – the apple! Characterized by the ‘top heavy’ feature, apple shaped figures tend to have square shoulders with a broad torso, a full bust and upper back. Apple shape figures generally have slim legs and arms and they tend to put on weight at the tummy region easily. Stars like Queen Latifah, Drew Barrymore, Kate Winslet and Oprah Winfrey have this apple shape.
So, let’s take a look at how you can dress this body shape in the most significant manner!
- Since apple shapes have slim arms and legs, you can make that the prominent feature of your outfit! For instance, sleeveless tops teamed with skinny pants can draw attention away from your torso and concentrate on your best feature – your arms and legs!
- If you want to create a proportioned look, you can team a loose-fitting top and balance out the equation with a fitted bottom, such as skinny pants teamed with a loose blouse in contrasting colors.
- If you must choose dresses, opt for the ones that have a defining feature at the waist; this will create an illusion waistline and give proportion to your figure. A wrap around dress made from crumpled fabric or a belted dress with a flared skirt will be great options and will create a faux-hour-glass figure out of your apple shape.
