Dress For Your Inverted Triangle Body Shape




Inverted Triangle Body Shape


With an Inverted Triangle Body Shape you are quite angular. You usually find that you look silly in dresses so you end up wearing sporty gear that suits your athletic or boyish frame.


You find it difficult to look feminine. Your secret is to play up to your angles and and add curve to your lower body.




Look to Style Icons Like:

Elle MacPherson, Cameron Diaz, Naomi Campbell






What To Wear:


  • All things asymmetric or angular in shape. This will create dramatic angles to redraw your body shape

  • Dresses with off centre gathers, diagonal lines or asymmetrical lines to create curves

  • Wider collars on shirts and jackets to balance your shoulders

  • Full length jackets with big or wide hip pockets

  • Flared skirts and fluted skirts

  • Flowing fabrics like chiffon or draping jersey will look feminine, fluid and create curves where you need them

  • Skinny jeans or cigarette pants

  • Flares that are fitted at your hips and thighs

  • Slim healed shoes to show off your slim calves and ankles

  • Wide strapped halter necks

Inverted Triangle Fashion

What Not To Wear:


  • An Inverted Triangle Body Shape should not wear shoulder pads

  • Stiff bulky fabrics

  • High necklines

  • Small collars

  • Cut away shoulders

  • Shapeless floaty dresses will make you look like Olive Oyl, Popeye's girlfriend

  • Platform or chunky shoes (they will emphasise your slim ankles)

  • 3/4 sleeves will just emphasis your V shape

  • All one colour or a large print dress. It will make you look bigger not smaller
