How to dress a Straight or Rectangle body type

Here are a few styling tips on how to dress a Straight or Rectangle body shape. The secret of dressing a straight body type is to dress your top and bottom proportionally, enhancing your waist. You can wear well fit clothes (eg. a tube type dress) and by adding a wide belt, you can create a waist. To create more curves, add the illusion of volume proportionally in your lower and upper body, with separates.


To create a more defined waist, look for tops that will add curves to your upper half:

- Tops with belts;
- Wide V, U necks or off the shoulder tops;
- Structured shoulders or flutter sleeves;
- Tops flowing around the bust;
- Embellishments around the shoulders and bust.

Look for bottoms that will add curves to your lower half, creating an hourglass figure:

- Pants, skirts and shorts with details, like embellished or flap pockets;
- Pants with moderate or full flared legs;
- Full, tiered or bubble skirts;
- Mid or low-rise waists and wide waistbands
