Apple – Dressing for Your Shape

By August 11, 2011 2 Comments

Apple Shape: The beautiful apple shape, most commonly women with this shape have a fuller neck and face, broader shoulders, larger breasts and an undefined waist, with nice shapely legs. I find it is best to have the eye drawn to your much envied breasts and gorgeous legs.  Focusing on your best assets and highlighting your positives will make you feel better, and make you more confident!

As for shirts, tight tops look great, but nothing too tight. V-Necks look great on apple shapes, the neckline draws the eye to your breast and away from your shoulders.

Also another great tip when dressing the apple shape, you will want a great fitting bra. A good bra changes the shape of the breast and the upper back area.

Solid color tops look best on an apple shape. Shirts with patterns or prints tend to get distorted in the breast area, it tends to make you appear larger on top.  

As for pants for the apple shape you will want to go with a boot cut or flared leg. This will give the appearance of a longer leaner leg.. Also apple shapes tend to have flatter rear ends, compared to other shapes. So to help add more to your backside I suggest jeans with embellished pockets or flap pockets.  It’s okay to add weight here!



I am all about women knowing who they are, finding their own individual style, and not spending a lot of money doing so.  I believe in creating looks that are timeless yet practical and consistent with your own personality. I live to shop the clearance racks! I truly believe It’s not what you wear but how you wear it. Not one of us were created to look the same, so what looks good on one woman might not look good on another. So when shopping for yourself, it is crucial to know what looks good on you. Knowing what works on your shape can make the difference from an ordinary outfit to ex-ordinary. I think we should go through life giving it all we have and I apply this ideology when dressing myself. I know from my own experience that when having a not so good day I know that if I put on a nice dress or fun sassy top, I can guarantee that what ever sour mood I might have felt before starts to slip away when I slip into the clothes. First impressions are lasting so why not always try to look your best you never know who you might meet! These are all approaches I take when building my wardrobe, or getting dressed on a daily basis. As far as about me as a person to share some insight with you. I clearly LOVE clothes. I but what I love more than the clothes themselves is how I feel when wearing certain outfits. I also LOVE to style for other people. I get such an amazing feeling when I have helped someone select an outfit that they feel good in. Or sometimes what is better than that for me is dressing someone in something they would never choose for their self and they end up loving it. Although I do love clothes I do not believe in spending a lot of money to look and feel good. I get a thrill out shopping clearance. The price tag does not define the worth of an item to me. What makes it worth it for me is how it makes me feel and knowing that I paid half the cost and still look GREAT!
