The apple shaped body is one of the more challenging body types to dress, but also one of the easiest when you’re camouflaging trouble spots. You’re blessed with slim arms and legs, which can be used to your advantage. Having an apple shaped body means your upper body is larger than your lower half.

Although you do have some problem areas, an apple shaped body usually also has some positive areas you can emphasize. All have to do is emphasize on your legs and neck, drawing away attention from your waist and shoulders.

Do that by wearing Flared denims, loose tops, v-necks, short skirts. Never wear Round necks, skinny tops, anything that draws attention to your waist. Beading or embellishment at the bust line can help as well. Wide-legged trousers keep your look more even and proportionate.

For the Pear shaped body type, the bottom part of your body is heavier. What that means is that the widest part of your body is below your waist, around your hips. The trick here is to wear skinnier bottoms like straight leg trousers.

If you’re a pear, your fashion goal is to elongate your figure so that you look less bottom-heavy. Go ahead and wear Bootcut trousers, brightly coloured and patterned tops paired with darker, structured skirts or jeans, boat necks or cowl necklines.
