How To Dress A Circle Body Shape

If you’ve already read my post on how to determine your body shape with measurements and found out you’re a circle body shape, this is the post for you! Having a circle body shape means that your waist measurement is larger than your bust, hips, or shoulder measurements.

Dressing Your Circle Body Shape

If you haven’t already, it’s very helpful to create a Pinterest board with other women and celebrities with my body shape so that you can reference it for outfit ideas and how they style the same body shape! For celebrities with a circle body shape, I recommend Drew Barrymore and Liz Hurley, Jennifer Hudson, and Oprah! Now to the tips…Most of us want to look balanced and visually proportionate. If that’s what you’re looking to do, here’s how…

Upper Body:

Wear Waist Defining Tops like…
Faux Wrap Tops
Ruching Details on Tummy
Flowy Tops (if you’re wearing something streamlined on the lower body)
Wear Bold Jewelry on Neckline
Pendant Necklaces (that hit under bust, not on tummy)
Scoop, Portrait, or V-Necklines
Wear Longer Jackets
Avoid Cropped Jackets
Wear Structured Fabrics

Lower Body:

Wear High-Waist Jeans/Pants

More Body Shapes

Triangle Body Shape
Inverted Triangle Body Shape
Hourglass Body Shape
Rectangle Body Shape

After a decade in TV news, a desire to help women "look pretty" sparked a career pivot. I started my own wardrobe consulting business, styling "real" women for many years. In 2014, I changed direction again, using my TV background and styling expertise to launch this website and my YouTube channel. We are now a community of well over 1 million dynamic, vibrant, amazing women over 40... who know that age isn't something you need to hide from. For us, life is just getting started!!
