Do you have an Hourglass Figure and want to know what looks smashing on you? On the other hand, you also wonder what to avoid because let’s be honest, who wants to walk around in clothes that aren’t flattering? Maybe you’re not sure if you have an Hourglass Figure. In that case, my earlier post Hourglass Figure Definition could be helpful to you. Please check it out here.
What are the Best Features of the Hourglass Figure?
The narrow waist and the curves. By the way, are you aware that the Hourglass Figure with its killer curves is considered to be the ideal body type and therefore the envy of a lot of women? Sounds good don’t you think? But will this help us get dressed in the morning if we don’t exactly know what looks good or bad on us? Well, not really and that is why we should pay attention to the following guidelines.
What to Wear
As we learnt above we should be very proud of our best features. Why not show them off instead of hiding our waist and curves under boxy clothes? Let’s discover what looks amazing on us and enhances our body shape.
- Fitted jersey tops
- Wrap tops
- Peplum blouses
- Tailored tops
- Trench coats
- A-Line coats
- Fitted blazers
- Bomber jackets
- Wrap dresses
- Fit and flare dresses
- Empire dresses
- Sheath dresses
- Pencil skirts
- A-Line skirts
- Gored skirts
- Flared skater skirts
- Boot-cut jeans and trousers
- Straight leg jeans and trousers
- Skinny jeans
- Fitted jumpsuits (choose a waist-flattering style)
- Skinny waist belts
- Boots that are snug around our thighs
- Kelly bags
- Hobo bags
What to Avoid
Our biggest enemies are bulkiness and boxiness. We should try to stay away from the following items because they don’t emphasize our Hourglass Figure and might prevent us from looking amazing.
- Boxy jackets
- Boxy tops
- Loose-fitting dresses (if you really like them add a belt to cinch in your waist)
- Casual clothes which can be too baggy
- Raglan sleeves
- Baggy pants
- Low rise trousers (can make our hips look wider and our legs look shorter)
- Big pockets that add volume to the hip area
- Straight leg boots
As usual, please take everything with a grain of salt. We are all different and what works for me might not work for you at all. If you like wearing casual and more loose-fitting items feel free to continue to do so. The most important thing is to wear whatever style you like and feel comfortable with. I prefer to see a happy and confident woman who might not wear the most flattering clothes for her body shape than a woman who looks impeccable but unhappy and insecure. That’s just my opinion.
What do you think? Do you feel great wearing fitted clothes? Please let me know.
Thanks for reading my post and have a wonderful time.
