Swing coats are perfect for apple-shaped women, and a shorter, cropped version will give you a little more shape without weighing you down
This post is for all my apple shaped friends out there is cyber space but especially for one particular follower who requested this. Nafisa this is for you.
Someone with an apple shaped body carries most of her weight above her waist, most noticeably in her stomach. She often has large breasts, narrow hips and thin legs. A protruding tummy is the hallmark of the apple shape.
Jackets are excellent apparel for apple shaped figure
Jackets help to hide the problematic areas of the body and emphasize your arms and shoulders beautifully. Choose the right style of jacket though! Do not wear a jacket which is too long. The right style of jacket for apple shaped figure should end at the top of the hip. The top button of the jacket should be placed just between the bust and top of the tummy area.
Stop wearing clingy and oversized tops
All apple shaped women should completely avoid wearing clingy and fitted tops. Keep away from boxy and oversized tops too as they make you look larger and shapeless. You can opt to wear longer shirts or tops as they help to cover-up the tummy area. Always remember not to wear any fabric which clings to your tummy.
Empire waist dresses and tops are the best pick
Empire waist tops and dresses are the best pick for apple shaped figure as these tops are designed so beautifully to flatter you. In an empire waist top the gather is placed just below the bust and then it simply flows out, right over the tummy area. Empire waist tops are a must have for apple shaped women, as they are excellent outfit for creating the illusion that waist and tummy beneath the flowing fabric are not huge.
Adorn yourself with trendy Accessories
Apple shaped women should wear attractive earrings and necklaces to draw attention to their face. Wear classy bracelets and colorful bangles to grab the attention to your arms. Choose stunning shoes or boots to complete a perfect look. The key to look stylish and attractive in an apple or pear shaped figure is to show off your best features by wearing right outfits loaded with fashionable accessories.
Select Perfect Pants
Apple shaped women should opt to wear pants with a wider waistband, in order to hold in the tummy. You should choose flared leg or boot cut pants. Boot cut jeans look great on apple shaped figure as they fall below the ankle creating a slimming effect and cast an excellent illusion of a clean line from the waist down. Apple shaped figure can also wear jeans with a little stretch to bring the tummy in a little. A stretch Jean would also help to emphasize other curves of the body, including the hips and backside.
Stay away from tight fitting dresses and trousers
Apple shaped women should stay completely away from trousers and dresses which have a tight fit. The more well-defined is your dress or trousers around your midsection, the more attention grabbing area it becomes. Instead simply focus on dark color trousers and dresses as they help to create a clean, straight line from the hip to the ankle. Your clothes should fit you loosely to give your silhouette smoothness in order to enhance your looks.
Skirts should be flat fronted and side fastened to avoided unnecessary bulk.
I hope this has been helpful for all you gorgeous apple shaped women and I hope this makes dressing up in lovely outfits that much easier!
