- Many of my friends, and just customers often came to me with a request for help in the formation of a perfect wardrobe. At first, I diligently avoided speaking out on such topics, because I am still an accessory designer, not a stylist, but the flow of people who wanted was not exhausted, and I realized that it was easier to thoroughly study the issue and create a single guide on various types of female figures so that requests to give a link to the material. And people are pleased, and I did a useful job! Perfect option. As a matter of fact, the idea was born to write a small cycle of four materials on creating a thoughtful wardrobe depending on the type of female figure - “triangle”, “inverted triangle”,"Rectangle" and "hourglass". Let's start in order.

The first thing that is worth getting out of your head regarding this type: never be shy about your figure! Of course, in modern times, when androgynous models and masculinity are popular, having wide hips and narrow shoulders (namely, “trapezium” looks like this) seems unforgivable.

However, fashion is a relative and fleeting concept, but male attention to women with such a figure is always guaranteed. In addition, say, Rubens and other artists of the Renaissance also liked these silhouettes - why not trust the taste of the great masters?

If you are not convinced, then look at world stars, and you will see that many of them have a “trapezoid” figure. These include, for example, the sexy Christina Aguilera, fashion diva Rihanna and the queen of the pop scene Beyonce. Not a bad company, what do you think? It seems to me just wonderful.

What things are worth wearing?

Let's start a conversation about clothes with a pleasant, that is, with the fact that wearing is not only possible, but even necessary.To further questions did not arise, I will say that the correction of the figure with clothes is not intended to make any woman the owner of the “hourglass” (why should everyone be combed with the same comb). No, our task is to smooth out some features of the silhouette, which every now and then seem to be imperfect to people.

Immediately I will inform the good news for all fans of feminine style: with dresses, girls with this type of figure have almost no problems. Ideal areA-line modelsthat were relevant in the 1920s and 1960s. Therefore, we recall the image of Twiggy and get inspired. The only thing choosing such a dress, try to give preference to the options.from dense fabricrather than fine silk, so that the model could hide the hips, and not emphasize them further.

Also we can not forget aboutempire dresses(when the waist is too high and starts just below the chest), and aboutNew Look Style Dresseswho invented the wonderful Christian Dior. This is another perfect option for women with a “trapezoid” figure. A dress in the style of New Look will not only emphasize the waist, but also hide the hips, for this case you should choose models with a sufficiently full skirt.

Speaking of skirts:trapeze skirt,tutu skirt,half skirt(from dense fabric) - all these models ideally sit on owners of wide hips. You can combine them both with the top, and with a free blouse, just be sure to refuel it, and do not wear a dress!

Let's say a few words about jeans with pants. In your wardrobe must appearwide palazzo trousersfrom flowing fabricsstraight pantsmade of thick wool or cotton andbanana pantswhich, thanks to their folds, help to hide what you need to hide.

As for jackets, then give preferencelong modelsending either below or above the mid-thigh — visually it will reduce them. Choosing a cardigan, follow a similar principle, and even better to buyvolume cozy cardiganin which you can wrap, as if in a blanket. Generally speaking, the theme of the oversize-silhouette for women with a trapezoid figure is a beautiful story, besides it is also fashionable now, which is doubly pleasant.

Completely forgot to sayabout shorts: short shorts, low waist shorts, fashionable denim models - wear anything! Shorts make the “triangle” shape really seductive due to the fact that they allow to show beautiful hips.Men beware!

What things should be avoided?

In order not to shed tears for a long time, we will quickly list the things that are contraindicated in this case.

Skinny jeansand skinny pants: alas and oh, but this practical clothes will have to be abandoned. They emphasize the hips too much.

Low rise jeans and trousers: also refuse and do not even cry about it! About such models have long been forgotten.

Sheath Dress: it's a pity, but what to do, such a style will not correct the “trapezoid” figure, but only emphasize its features. If you still do not want to abandon the model, then balance the image with a voluminous bright scarf, a light cardigan or a fitted jacket.

Pencil skirt: we get rid of this thing for the same reason as the sheath dress: this skirt emphasizes the hips too much.
