Have you ever had an outfit planned in your head and when you put it on it doesn’t quite look right? Or maybe you saw a photo on Instagram and tried to recreate it but it just didn’t look the same on you. Well, that happened to me a thousand times until I realized that it was because I wasn’t choosing items that suited ME.
I’ve started this series where I guide you on how to choose the right items that fit YOU. We’re all different and that’s the best part, we get to be unique and look our best. In a recent post, I talked about how to choose sunglasses for your face shape so you can go check them out as well.
The most important thing when it comes to fashion is knowing yourself. Like I’ve said before, fashion is all about self-expression, the idea is to show the world who you are through your clothing and that your image reflects your identity. Now, to do that we must know ourselves, and that is obviously a very personal and deep task, so what we’ll focus on today is knowing which neckline suits us the best depending on our body type.
When it comes to body shapes there are a million ways to define them, after all, it’s very difficult to fit all 7.8 billion of us into 6 categories so instead, we’ll talk about proportions and see what’s closer to your body type.
I’ll be sending all my subscribers an email where I explain in detail each one of these body types so make sure to subscribe to my newsletter so you don’t miss it!
This body type tends to have more volume on the upper part, so the idea is to choose a neckline that reduces said volume. You can also wear darker colored tops. Asymmetrical tops are great for you.
Your body shape tends to be very proportionate, you have the same volume on the top and the bottom. You can wear basically any neckline you want, but you should always cinch in the waist to create an hourglass shape.
Your body shape tends to have more volume on the bottom, so any neckline that brings attention to the top is completely welcome. Don’t forget to cinch in the waist to create a more proportionate silhouette. Wearing lighter colors on the top and darker on the bottom helps to create balance.
I hope this guide was useful! If you have any doubts don’t hesitate to contact me here or over on Instagram, I’ll be glad to answer!
