Body Shapes. Inverted Triangle.  How to dress and flatter your shape.

The Inverted Triangle body shape is the most athletic-looking silhouette among the 5 body shapes.  It's the shape of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Cameron Diaz. 

Inverted triangle shapes have wider upper body and slimmer lower body.   If you have broad shoulders with a less defined waist with narrow hips, you're an inverted triangle.

It's a shape that's easy to dress but not always easy to find pieces off the peg.  Choosing the wrong outfit can make your body look boxy or very heavy on the top half.  Jackets are especially hard to find.

How to dress an Inverted Triangle Shape:

  • This is a shape that wants to play up the lower half of the body.
  • You can have fun with your lower half, drawing attention using bold colours and great fabrics to achieve proportion for your overall look.
  • Plain fabrics are the way to go when it comes to dressing the top half of your body.  And darker fabric work well here. Avoid patterns and light colours as they can draw attention to your bust and shoulders.
  • Avoid cropped jackets as again they can look boxy.  A long line blazer that fits perfectly across your shoulders is a great look.  Avoid shoulder pads.
  • When it comes to trousers, a kick flare is a great way to add volume to your overall look.  The flare will give balance.

Skirts should be well fitted and end at the knee.  You want to draw attention to your slim waist, hips and legs.  If you want to add volume, think about a skirt with a pattern or pin-stripe.

If you're struggling to find off the peg clothes for your body shape do get in touch.  Come and meet Distinctively Me Founder Jill White who can offer you a free consultation and talk you through your options.
