How to shop for your beautiful straight body shape

Also known as 'rectangle shaped', you might not have curves but your beautiful and balanced body shape is most often seen on the runway. Woohoo! You have a small to medium bust, undefined waist, straight hips and bottom with not many curves and well aligned shoulders and hips. To make the most of your shape, flaunt those gorgeous, lean arms and legs. You can also dress to emphasise curves and a defined waist.


Tops
Round neck, scoop neck and off shoulder tops look amazing on you. Detailing on shoulders, around neckline and bust will highlight those areas. A relaxed fit works best. 
Blazers and tops that cinch in at the waist will add some curves to your look. A wide belt around the waist will also do the trick. Jackets and coats with a defined shoulder outline which are flared down to mid hip or just below knees will give you a gorgeous silhouette too. 

 The Wendy Voon Back Cardigan looks beautiful on you. This unique cardigan gives you a sculptural silhouette.

Bottoms
Almost all pants look great on you. Figure hugging pants or jeans with a mid to low rise waist look amazing. As do bootcut, flare, crop and tapered leg pants. Hot tip: back pockets will emphasise your booty. 

Pencil, tulip, circle and a-line skirts look beautiful on you. Skirts with a cinched waist will curve-up your figure. 


The Katie Hosking Cropped Pants look amazing on you (although most pants do!). Their firmness around the bottom and thighs give you a bit of shape whilst showing off your lovely legs.


Dresses
Look for dresses that gather or belt at the waist. A-line dresses as well as ‘fit and flare’ dresses look beautiful on you, defining your waist and creating a lovely shape. If you prefer a long dress, a belted maxis or maxi dress with a cinched in waist or empire waist look great.

The David Loves Seagulls Dress looks beautiful on you. It helps to give a defined waist and feminine silhouette. Oh and your lovely arms and long legs are going to look great in this one too.
