Inverted Triangle: Your shoulders or bust is larger than your hips. Stylists recommend tops that have shape around the waist, open necklines, and clothing that accentuates your legs.We recommend V-neck tops that create a long, lengthened neckline and wide-leg or cropped pants that give your legs and ankles attention that can give the volumizing illusion of fuller hips and thighs.
Celebrity Examples: Jill Scott | Naomi Campbell | Angelina Jolie
Apple: Your shoulders are rounder, and your bust is full to large with a waistline that is not defined. Stylists recommend avoiding leggings, super tight skinny jeans,things that make you look shorter, or wear a pant that covers the shoe. Avoid wearing three button blazers that hide or camouflage your middle, or tight clothing. We recommend flare leg pants, single button blazers, using a belt(wide or narrow) to fake a waist or hourglass shape. Wear heels to elongate the body and add a clutch for visual interest.
Celebrity Examples: Melissa McCarthy |Oprah Winfrey | Amy Schumer
Rectangle: Your shoulders, bust and hips are similar in size, and your waist is less defined.The more accentuated the shoulders and hips are, the smaller your waist looks.Stylists recommend off-the-shoulder tops, tube dresses, fitted clothing and belted waists to create an illusion of a defined waistline. We recommend shirts that balance your upper body and this may include tops with ruffles, bows,pockets and other embellishments that increase the volume in your lower body.

Pear: Your shoulders and bust are narrower than your hips. Most likely you have slim arms with a defined waist. Stylists recommend clothing that accentuates your waistline. We recommend dressing with fitted tops and wider bottoms. For example, fit-and-flare dresses showcase your narrow shoulders with a soft transition to the wider hips. Using belts to define the waistline is also recommended.

Hourglass: Your shoulders and hips are nearly equal in size, and you have a well-defined waist that is smaller than both. Your legs and upper body are considered proportionate, and you may have slightly rounded shoulders and a roundedbuttock.
