Fashion Tips for Apple Shaped BodyFri, September 21, 2012
Different women have different body shapes. Yet there are several shapes that are most commonly spread ones. Among them is an apple shape. The apple shape refers to women who have more weight around the middle, as opposed to the chest, hips, or thighs, and arms and legs are slimmer than the tummy. If you belong to this body shape, then do not be alarmed. There are different ways to make your body look perfect, by concealing the parts which are not pleasant to you. You can choose dresses that will not highlight the unwanted areas, thus making you feel comfortable and confident.
Here are some useful fashion tips for an apple shaped body, which will help you have a clear idea of the peculiarities of this body shape and help you choose correct clothes that will suit you best.
Choose clothes of loose material
The most important thing an apple shaped woman should keep in mind is the choice of a dress in loose material that will gently glide over the tummy. A straight dress will outline every inch of your body, thus making you feel discomfort. Never miss the chance to draw attention away from your tummy. Best thing to do is wearing a necklace, especially a rich one, which will gain much attention. No less useful are scarves. A clever switch of attention from your tummy to the upper part of your body will give you bonuses, since your full bosom is your “trump card”.
Emphasize your legs
Since your legs are more than slim, try not to hide them with maxi dresses or wide-legged pants. Always choose short skirts or mini dresses, that will give you the possibility to highlight the most enviable and gorgeous parts of your body. If you like skirts, then take those with a high waistline, which will hide your tummy. You can complete your look with a light shirt, laying it under the waistline.
Choose right tops
V-neck blouses or shirts are an ideal choice for your body shape. They lengthen your figure thus making you look slimmer. Always choose a long blouse or a tunic type blouse that will reach your back. Avoid blouses that end right on your waist thus cutting your body on the wrong part and making your full tummy visible.You can also go for blouses that are tight enough on your bosom area, and loose enough beneath it. By doing so, you will add femininity to your body, highlighting the narrow area. Never take hard fabrics that tend to make you look full. Always give preference to light textures.
Use correct pants
Choose pants that are high enough not to cut your tummy into two parts. Avoid wearing skinny jeans with short blouses. Skinny jeans can be a great choice only when combined with a tunic. You can as well wear straight pants, to emphasize your slim legs. Also choose pants of stretchy materials, since the latter will make you have a balanced silhouette, and your tummy will not protrude forward.
Don’t forget about shoes and accessories
To complete your look, choose shoes on high heels that will highlight your legs even more. They can be used not only when wearing dresses or shirts, but also with pants. Anyways, if you prefer flats or shoes on lower heels, you can pick them as well, if your natural height allows you to.
Shoes are normally picked with matching accessories. Take a nice clutch, wear fashionable earrings and a necklace, and you can be safe, since no one will ever notice the misbalanced areas of your body.
And keep on reminding yourself, that you are not the only one on the entire earth with an apple shaped body. There are thousands of women in the same category, who do not get frustrated and find ways to achieve fantastic looks. Add a little imagination when combining clothes, try every single tip mentioned above, and be sure that your efforts will work for you.
