Fashion Tips for Women With Apple Body Shapes

Creating a good look for yourself is all about dressing for your specific body type. Of course, there are a variety of body types and corresponding looks. In this article, we address the apple body type.

We all see the ads of the heroin chic women modelling clothes. If you are willing to give up food for the rest of your life, then you can achieve those looks. Since most of us are unwilling to go to that extreme, we need to shop for clothes that fit our real world body. To do that, you need to be honest and classify your body correctly. There are good looks for any body type, so don't fret.

The apply body type is one in which you tend to hold your weight around the waistline. You've got lots of curves and should be proud of them. Your bust line may be large, but not necessarily. In general, your upper body is larger than your lower body. So, what clothing advice can we give that is going to make you look dynamic.

Your top should have a few characteristics. The first tip is to wear it long. Make sure it extends well below your waistline as it will cover that area. Higher up, go with a lower neck line or plunging cleavage look. Now accessorize with a dramatic necklace to draw the eyes up to your facial area. Consider covering the look with a light coat to create vertical lines and soften up rough spots.

With an apple body type, you can really make a look go with trousers or skirts. With trousers, your urge may be to wear something tight. Don't go with straight leg look that runs directly from your hips. This will create a seamless transition that creates a subtle, smoky impression where your waistline is de-emphasized. For skirts, go with a higher waistline and a full skirt. This will create a vertical appearance, which is your overall desire.

We're not done yet. Your footwear will play a role in the look. The apple body type tends to come with delicate ankles and feet. Emphasize them! Wearing a contrasting colour is your first step. Depending on the conditions, try to go with something that will draw attention in the way of sandals in the summer or high spiked heels in the winter.

Consider the overall approach we've taken here. We've dressed to move the eyes to two locations - the lower legs and our neck/face. Why? These are the two strong points of the typical apple body shape. That doesn't mean they always will be, so do an objective evaluation of your body and identify your strong points. Now create an outfit that will draw the eyes to those areas and you will be well down the road to creating a successful look for your body type.
