Dressing For Your Body Type - Hourglass

Again, remember these are just guides – always wear what makes you feel fabulous!
Our third body type is the HOURGASS SHAPE
You describe yourself as curvy, you have a well-defined waist, bust and hip measurements are roughly even and you may have fuller bust, hips and thighs.
TOPS -- Fitted, fitted, fitted!! Celebrate your waist and highlight your neckline! Form-fitting jersey knits, wrap tops, peplum blouses, tailored tops with ample room in chest and anything with a V-neck, round neck or boat neck are your go-tos.
Breezy A-line silhouettes, flowy tunics, relaxed, boyfriend button-ups and v-neck anything. Choose fabrics that streamline from your bust through your hips.
LAYERS -- Find jackets that show off your waist! Classic trench, fitted blazers, cropped silhouettes and bomber jackets look terrific on you. BEWARE of boxy styles they don’t do your curves justice.
DRESSES -- Your figure was made for dresses! Look for silhouettes like a wrap dress or the fit & flare- these naturally play up your best features. Empire dresses also work well. BEWARE of flowy styles. If you love a loose fitting dress, simple add a belt- when in doubt belt it!!
JEANS -- High-waisted, floor grazing flares and heels are your go-to. Stretchy skinny jeans and leggings are perfect to show off your curves. Fitted jumpsuits (very on trend right now!) look incredible on you. Just remember to grab a waist flattering style. Because your proportions are so well balanced you don’t need extra details like large seams or cargo pockets that accentuate your hips.
JEWELRY -- Necklaces look great on you. To play up your bust, choose a length that hits at or slightly below your collarbone.
