When you have a rectangle shape, your bust, waist, and hip measurements are almost the same. The best styles for you to wear are straight rather than fitted so that they skim over the waistline.
Wearing the silhouettes and proportions that are best for your shape and height will help you to feel more confident. Many of us attend parties, special functions, and other dressy events during this time of year. Having a nice jacket that you can throw on over your basics elevates them to party-worthy.
A high-low jacket hemline is also a good choice for those of us with flat bottoms and short legs. V-necklines help to make us look taller, and they also flatter a roundish face. Exposing the wrists and forearms with a three-quarter length sleeve helps us look taller and more slender.
Rhinestones and glitter are not for everyone. Sometimes a dramatic scale or shimmering metallic finish is more in tune with our personalities. Crushed velvet might fit your style better than lace, for example, and a deep burgundy instead of bright red might be festive enough for you.
Many thanks to ShopMyFairLady.com for sending me this beautiful jacket by IC Collection for this lesson on dressing the rectangle shape.
My heels and bag are old from Saks Off 5th. The earrings were from Chico’s a few years ago.
