Dressing Your Hourglass 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 an hourglass body shape, I recommend checking out Blake Lively, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, and Brigitte Bardot! 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…

Lower Body:

Wear A Waist Belt
Form Fitting Dresses
Skinny or Tapered Jeans/Pants
Bootcut, Flared, Wide-Leg Jeans

Upper Body:

Wear Belted Coats & Dresses
Scoop or V-Necklines
Pendant Necklaces
Wear Necklaces Higher on Chest
Wrap Dresses or Tops
