Stop obsessing over those pesky holiday pounds and start wearing clothes that help you to look your best. Today we complete our series focusing on the most flattering pieces for your figure based on your body shape.
Apple shaped women are represented by the letter "O" with a thicker middle and slimmer legs and rear. The goal is to divert attention from a full stomach to thinner legs or arms.
Smart Style Strategies:
Avoid bringing attention to your middle with overly snug tops
Long, vertical silhouettes help take the focus away from your tummy
Play up your legs with slim cut pants paired with a blousy top or tunic
Empire waist tops emphasize the narrower part of your torso
Don't be afraid of prints or patterns which create an optical illusion and slim your torso
Opt for mid-rise pants to avoid muffin top
Avoid wrap dresses or tops, pleats, front pockets and waist belts - all of which draw attention to a thick middle
