The Shape of Style: Hourglass Body Type

Continuing with our body type series we explore the body type that many woman have and struggle to accentuate. 

Hourglass Body Shape: Beyonce

  • Balanced hip and shoulder or bust width, defined waistline

Goal in dressing: 

  • Emphasize your natural hourglass shape.

You should wear:

  • Classic shapes and balanced top and bottom designs.
  • Details at the waistline, like belts or color blocking.
  • Most styles can be flattering on hourglass shapes.

 You should avoid:

  • Styles that hide the waistline like babydoll, boxy or bubble shapes.
  • Any fabrics or details that give the illusion of bulkiness to the top or bottom (chunky knits).
  • Form fitting is great, very tight might be too much.
