Dressing Your Rectangle 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 rectangle body shape, I recommend Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson! Now to the tips…Most of us want to look balanced and visually proportionate. If that’s what you’re looking to do, your goal is to create a waist!

Full, Flared, A-Line Bottoms
