"Body Shape... the Perfect Fit" [Straight]


Hey everyone, while writing my post “Shop your Skin Tone” I realized there was another important subject that needs to be discussed, plus it is very necessary when picking the right outfit.   It’s about knowing your body shape. Now...there are 6 body shape types: Straight, Hourglass, Inverted Triangle, Pears, Diamond and Oval. Today we are going to talk about the Straight Body Type.


ok… lets talk straight :) ... straight or I shape body types has chest and hips that are the same width, while the waist has a little definition. When thinking about straight body type you should imagine an athletic body and with most athletes the best assets are the arms and legs. So, if you are straight shaped, when shopping remember two things: one… I need to create curves, and two... I need to show off my legs and arms.

Now let’s talk about what is the best clothing to buy…

Your tops should be:
  •           V-neck, U-neck, off the shoulders and sweetheart
  •           It should flow around the chest area
  •           Embellished collars, and ruffles
  •           Structured shoulders

Here is a cute ASOS off the shoulder top…..



Your bottoms should be:

  •           Pants: embellished, flap pockets, flared legs plus color pants
  •           Skirts: tiered or bubble
  •           Shorts: embellished or flap pockets
below is an example of jeans that will give you curves by Forever 21… 




Forever 21… $28.90





Your Dresses should have:
  •            Ruching (not my favorite, but it does work)
  •            Cinches

Your Jackets should be:
  • Long to give a leaner look
Here is a great example of a dress that shows off your arms & legs!


ASOS…. $51.85




extra tip: wear layers it’s a great look for you.

Next post…. Hourglass & Triangle shapes… stay tuned :)
