But being straight up and down with virtually no curves has its challenges like any body type. I can’t tell you how many times my husband has said, “look at that little boy,” joking about how tiny Natalie Portman is.
The key for you ladies who are rectangular shaped, is to create curves. That is very simple to do by selecting strategic clothing that adds volume like full skirts and peplum tops and dresses. You can also look for design details that create volume like ruffles and pleats. Prints will also give the illusion of curves. Opt for smaller scale prints, though, as larger prints will swallow your slender frame. And, never underestimate the power and versatility of a slim-fitting blazer to add flattering definition to your body.
