How to Dress for Your Shape

Find the right fit for your body type with our shape-targeted advice on buying pants, skirts, dresses, and more.
  • Wide-leg pants.A dark pair slenderizes the thighs while creating a longer and slimmer silhouette.
  • Boatneck top.The wide neckline broadens the shoulders to offset fuller hips.
  • Tailored jacket.A structured jacket plays up the shoulders (which are narrower than the width of the hips on a triangle shape) to even out the lower body's proportions.
