In continuation to the previous post on ‘How to wear maxi’s this summer,’ this article will show you which body type can wear what kind of Maxi’s along with the  examples.

different body shapes, How to dress your body type

different body shapes, How to dress your body type

Rectangle or Athletic :

Can wear frilly chiffons with cutouts and floral prints. Try to choose light coloured ones so that it adds volume.

Pear Shaped :

Can wear A-Line Silhouette with ease. Make sure the maxi is fitted just around your waist with some work on the Décolleté or around the neckline

Apple Shaped :

Can wear maxi’s that are fitted around and just under the bust and are flowy later on.

Strawberry Shaped:

Can wear maxi’s that that are shaded, especially the ones that have a darker shade on the upper half. Pick up scooped or Deep – V necklines.

Hourglass Shape:

Can wear anything they want. But the most to flatter you body would be bodycon or body hugging ones.

I hope you now know what suits you best. Go ahead and flaunt your style. Do not be  bothered about what ‘Dress size’ you are ,as long as you are healthy! Don’t forget to leave me your comments.
