Styling Tips For Your Body Type

1. Pear Body Type

Pear Body Type

A pear-shaped body type suggests that you have a wider lower body than your upper body. Your chest and shoulders tend to be narrow, while your hips and lower stomach are more accentuated. Highlighting your upper body should help you to be able to create a balance. So, to define your narrow shoulders and draw attention to your waist, always go for a scoop neck, puffy sleeves, V necks, cowl necks, and more fitted and structured tops. You can also add shrugs and jackets to add a charm to your look while balancing your lower and upper body. We suggest you pair our Arizona Aztec Jacket with our Aztec Ariat Tee to see how this combination will work wonders for your body shape!

Do’s And Don'ts

  • Wear clothes that help balance your upper and lower half. Scooped necklines, off-shoulders, shoulder pads, etc., are a great option. 
  • Avoid wearing tight-fitted skirts and snug trousers.

2. Hourglass Body Type

Hourglass Body Type

Hourglass figures are considered to be the ideal body type. This body type has a wide bust & hips, a narrow waist, and an enhanced amount of curves. If you are blessed with an Hourglass figure, embrace it by wearing body-hugging and figure-accentuating dresses! Make sure to steer clear of loose tops and bottoms. You can opt for a bolder chic look by pairing your dress with our Wild Bandita Large Wallet and Silver Tooled Western Hoops! Visit our women’s boutique to start shopping today!

Do’s And Don'ts

  • Scoop and V-neck tops should work wonders for you as they will show off your torso and draw focus upward to your face.
  • Try to steer clear of all the boxy, straight skirt types and stiff fabrics. It’s also best to avoid clothes with big voluminous pockets and ruffles.

3. Rectangular Body Type

Rectangular Body Type

A rectangle/straight body shape is also known as an athletic body shape. If measurements of hips and shoulders match and have a no waist definition, then you have a rectangular body type. Want to know what will be the perfect match for you? A ruffled top with an A-line skirt! Just remember to look for items that can be accessorized with a belt to accentuate your waist.

Do’s And Don'ts

  • Go with the clothes that bring out those slight curves in your body. Wear pleated skirts and body-hugging jeans along with a belt to highlight your waist.
  • Don't opt for tunics and dresses without a defined waistline if you have this body type.

4. Apple Body Type

Apple Body Type

Do you also have broad shoulders and carry most of your weight around your waist? You have an apple body type! Wondering which outfits will work best for you? We have you covered! Try wearing breezy a-line silhouettes, V-neck tops, wrap dresses, or anything that will elongate your torso. Avoid wearing skinny jeans or straight-legged jeans and go with bootcut or flared jeans with back pockets. Buy our Western Frontier Jeans and add a Santa Rosa Tank top to rock this look!

Do’s And Don'ts

  • We know that bell-bottom jeans will be a perfect match for you! Pairing them with v-neck tops and a few accessories will create a fabulous look.
  • Ruffle and spaghetti tops with complicated necklines are not the best option for you. Avoid wearing high waist trousers and skirts.

5. Inverted Triangle Body Type

Inverted Triangle Body Type

If your hips and waist are narrow in comparison to your shoulders and bust, then you have an inverted triangle body type. You will need to choose clothes that will highlight the lower half of your body. You can try wearing asymmetrical, a-line silhouettes and dresses to create the perfect balance. You can also wear shorts if you are not fond of wearing dresses! Try pairing our Lucy 5” Ariat Shorts with the Pioneer Top and level up your fashion game instantly!
