Good Morning friends! Love day is approaching and will be here before we know it. Why not start planning the perfect Valentine’s date look now? Take away the stress and be prepared for a night of romance. This week I’m teaching you the perfect Valentine’s date look for the Hourglass & Triangle body types. Next week I will be teaching on the Rectangle & Inverted Triangle body types.
Triangle Body Type
The Triangle Body type (also known as the Pear Shape) is characterized by having:
- defined waist
- fuller hips or thighs
- shoulders narrower than hips
- smaller bust or upper body
The goal with a triangle body type is to create a balanced body shape. You want your smaller upper body to look proportionate to the lower half.
I have chosen this fit & flare dress because it defines the waist. The sleeves are a semi capped sleeve and help broaden the small shoulders to bring balance to your figure which draws the eye up away from the fuller bottom half. Bonus! This dress is on sale for $25 at DressBarn! I paired this dress with black laser cut pumps, a white crocodile bag and stunning flower earrings. Find the complete look here.
Hourglass Body Type
The Hourglass Body type is characterized by:
- a small waist
- fuller hips
- fuller bust
- shoulders measure within 2 inches of your hip measurements
The Hourglass body type is the classic female body shape. It is the most flexible when it comes to dressing because you already have balance between your top and bottom half.
The wrap dress is perfect for the hourglass body type. It defines the waist and has balance between the shoulders and hips. DVF changed the fashion world when she created the wrap dress! It looks good on almost any body type but especially the hourglass. I love this floral print because it’s feminine but can be pulled off with a bit of edge. I’ve added black accessories to bring in that edge and a studded white clutch. Find the complete look here.
