How to Dress the Apple Body Shape & What to Wear

If you’re a proud apple-shaped body owner, you want to focus on drawing attention away from your middle because it tends to be underdefined, and you have other great features you should show off. Therefore, you should avoid wearing wide belts, patterns around your middle, and any other embellishments.

One of the features you should draw attention to is your bust. Ideally, you want to do it without emphasising your shoulders. Excellent options for you are tops or dresses with V-necks, narrow bodices, plunging necklines, scoop or strapless tops and dresses. Boat necks, off-the-shoulder tops or dresses, or decorated necklines are some of the ones you should avoid. In terms of length, your tops should fit loosely around your middle, and fall slightly below your hips.

You have great long legs and you should show them off! You should wear loose or flared trousers. They can be made of any material you like, and preferably with pockets on your butt. This will define your bottom. The one thing, you should definitely avoid, are tight trousers. They make your legs look even slimmer, which create an imbalance in your overall body. A great option for you is high waisted trousers and shorts. They will define your waist and emphasise your legs.

For skirts, you should opt for A-lines or skirts that go straight down along your legs. Definitely avoid those skirts that are too tight around your waist. A-line dresses are another great option for you. You would also look amazing in a dark dress with light colour going all the way down at both of your sides.

You want to wear shoes that don’t make your feet look too large. So, shoes such as Uggs are not the best for you. Opt for knee-length boots, ballet flats, wedges, platforms or strappy sandals instead.

I would like to put out there that no matter what I’ve written here, you should wear what makes you feel good in the first place. Even if it’s something you should supposedly avoid!

See you soon!
