How to dress an Apple body shape

Here are a few styling tips for your Apple body type. The secret of dressing an Apple body shape is to create a more defined waist. You can do that by choosing clothes that add curves to your lower body and tops that accentuate your waist. You can wear different kinds of skirt lengths, but don’t go too short or you’ll be drawing attention to your midsection.

TOPS

Look for tops that create a more defined waist:

– Square, wide U or V necks;
– Tops with belts;
– Wrap style tops and jackets with tie fastenings;
– Tops with vertical details or patterns;
– Tops that flare at the hip.

BOTTOMS

Look for bottoms that will balance your upper body with your lower body, by adding a bit of volume:

– Trousers with wide or full legs;
– Pants with details like embellished and flap pockets;
– Flared or bubble skirts;
– Mid-rise waist with wide waistbands.
