The Complete Guide to Dressing for YOUR Body Type
You generally know what looks best on you—perhaps there’s a wrap dress that consistently makes you feel confident or you always gravitate toward wide-leg pants—but we figured a more in-depth look at dressing for your body type is never a bad idea.
Scroll down to see the specific styles that make your body type look its absolute best, from coats and tops to skirts and dresses.

You’re a banana!
Your goal is to highlight the thinnest part of your waist so your hips and bust appear larger and more proportional.
You’re a pear!
Your goal is to elongate and balance your figure by accentuating your top half.
