How To Dress An Inverted Triangle Body Shape

If you’ve already read my post on how to determine your body shape with measurements and found out you’re an inverted triangle body shape, this is the post for you! Having an inverted triangle body shape means that your shoulder and bust measurements are larger than your hip measurement.

Dressing Your Inverted Triangle 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 inverted triangle body shape, I recommend Angelina Jolie and Renee Zellweger! 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…minimize the upper body and maximize the lower body.

Lower Body:

Wear Colors & Prints
Wear Full, Flared, or A-Line Skirts & Dresses
Wide Leg Pants and Trousers

Upper Body:

Wear Dark Solid Colors
Vertical Stripes
Strategic Necklines – V or Scoop Neck
Soften Shoulder w/ Soft Draped Fabrics
Cap Sleeves
Avoid Puff Shoulders

You should minimize your problem area and maximize your assets. So if you’re an inverted triangle, the chances are that your legs are amazing! Play up and show off those legs with skirts and dresses!
