Your whole look depends upon your outfit. It is important that your attire suits your body. In order to make sure that the clothing item you have picked for yourself is flattering for your body, you need to dress according to your body type.

First, you need to determine your body type correctly. If you don’t know your body type, then here is a guide for you.

Apple Shaped Body

A curvy body with a less defined waist, then it is an apple shaped or circular body.

If you have an apple shaped body, then you should go for tops that define your waistline such as peplum tops. Also, you should go for V-necks. While talking about the bottoms, bootcut, skinny, flared and straight, all of them will look good on your body. Also, you should prefer high waisted bottoms. If we talk about dresses, then again you should go for something that defines your waist such as a wrap dress

Pear Shaped Body
