How to dress an Inverted Triangle shaped body type

Your beautiful shapely legs are your best asset. Your upper body is proportionately larger. Inverted triangle body types have broad shoulders, an ample bust, and a wide back. Your hips are slim and your bottom may be on the flat side. To create a more hourglass effect balance your broad shoulders and chest with your narrower lower body. Choose clothes that add curves to your hips and bottom creating a defined waist. You can play with different skirt lengths, but don’t go too short.


Balance your bust with your hips by wearing tops that have:

  •  Narrow V-necks
  • Banding or nipping at the waist
  • Wrap-style
  • Tailored jackets
  • Dark colored





Enhance your lower body and balance your upper body by choosing:

  • Pants with embellished or flat style pockets
  • Full A-Line skirts
  • Jeans with wiskering at the hip
  • Boot cut wide legs
  • Cargo pants



Balance your athletic upper bottom by choosing:

  • Simple halter tops
  • Bottoms with ruffles, side ties or embellishments
  • One-piece suits with cut-outs
  • Patterned or light colored bottoms paired with solid tops
  • Bottoms that cut straight across your hips
