How to dress an apple shaped body?
When dressing an apple shaped body you need to consider that the upper body often is slightly larger than the lower body with the accent on the waist. So a full bust, broad shoulders and a tummy are part of the upper body.
V-necks & silk blouses
If you want to flatter these parts, especially the tummy you have to make sure to avoid tight tops and blouses. Choose loose fitted blouses and tops with an open neckline. Also peplum style is great. V-necks make you look slimmer. Avoid high neck tops and blouses as they tend to make the upper part of the body heavier. When it comes to colors choose dark and plain materials. Also, avoid tanktops with broad straps as they tend to make your shoulder area look bigger.
Do’s: V-necks, peplum style, silk blouses, wide sweaters.
Dresses for apple body shape
When it comes to dresses for the apple body shape you need to make sure that the tummy part is covered in a flattering way. Flatter the tummy part: an a-line dress is perfect as the upper part is fitted and the bottom of the dress is wider. You can also wear a small belt in de waist to define your silhouette.
Do’s: A-line dresses, peplum style dresses.
There are enough nice jackets and blazers for women with an apple figure when it comes to high street fashion. Just as dresses also choose an A-line design when shopping for a jacket to flatter the tummy area. Choose jackets and blazers which are wider at the bottom to bring more balance in your figure. Also peplum style is great again for apples. Forget wide cardigans and vests.
Do’s: A-line, peplum style.
The printed skirt
Ladies with an apple shaped body often have slim legs and smaller hips, so skirts with a print are then fab to wear! Don't forget your high heels to make yourself look longer.
Do’s: printed skirts and bright colors
If you're digging that 70's vibe as an apple you are in the right place as flared jeans are perfect for you! Jeans and pants with flared legs strengthen the balance between the upper and the lower body. Also, you look great in tight jeans and you can rock short shorts like crazy!
Do’s: flared jeans, bright colors, tight pants/ jeans, playsuits and shorts.
