Pear Shape

You have narrow shoulders and broad hips and appear bottom heavy. Your goal is to balance out your hips and shoulders. Try a portrait collar or boatneck neckline to help broaden the shoulders. Embellishment at the neckline also works well, as does a cap sleeve. Dark colors on your bottom half will help camouflage your bottom half.

Mixed Media A-Line Midi Dress

Inverted Triangle

Your body is the opposite of a pear. You have broad shoulders and narrow hips. To create balance, wear V-necks to open up your broad chest; a voluminous skirt, palazzo pants, and bright colors on your bottom half make your hips, and bottom look more full. Tea length shows off your great legs.

Bell Sleeve Sheath Dress

Curvy Hourglass

You are balanced top and bottom. Your goal is to play up your shape without looking too sexy. Try an elegant draped wrap dress with soft ruching to highlight your curves and downplay your tummy. Any waist detail works well to spotlight your thin middle; if you wear a jacket, be sure it nips in at your waist.

Long Velvet Dress

Apple

You have a whole, rounded midsection and bust but thin legs. Your goal is to create angles where there are none. Try V-necks to open up the chest, an empire waist to raise the core, and structured jackets over loose, flowing dresses.

Knot Front Dress with Embellished Short Sleeve

Rectangle

You have an athletic body. It is a boxy, boyish figure with no waist. The goal is to create curves and feminize the body. Opt for a wrap dress,  a belted style, or a dress with a deep/open neckline. Fitted skirts that flare like trumpet skirts are perfect, as is any feminine detailing.

Once you’ve found the style that flatters your body shape, the real fun begins. Take your inspiration from nature and go all out in a fall wedding guest dress as rich and colorful as the stunning Autumn scenery!
