How to Dress the Strawberry Body Shape & What to Wear

The strawberry body shape is the opposite of the pear shape, and therefore, the styling advice for this body shape is the opposite. You should keep the upper part of your body mostly plain. That means staying clear of any embellishments, ruffles, prints, and especially padded shoulders, and ornaments in the shoulder area.

You shouldn’t wear chunky jumpers or anything that will add volume to your upper body. If you do want to wear them, keep them in darker shades. However, you can wear tops with vertical stripes. They will elongate your upper body and make it look narrower.

As opposed to that, you want to add all the volume to your lower body. Trousers with embellishments and prints on them, especially in the hip area are the perfect choice for your body shape. Also, feel free to wear A-line skirts. In general, anything that will add more width to your hips is perfect for your body shape. Another way to create a more balanced body and accentuate your waist is to wear belts in the waist area.
