The Hourglass Figure
Women that possess an hourglass figure should highlight their curves by cinching that tiny waist and bring attention to your full form. Nazanin Fara is a style influencer that celebrates being a curvaceous woman in our Peplum the Label Daffodil Skirt Pink. Other options to consider include a pencil skirt or a wrap dress with a V-neck all available at OwnTheLooks to flatter this shape and, accentuate your bustline while highlighting your waist and hips. To elongate your silhouette, wide-leg trousers are another alternative that complements the hourglass figure to perfection.
If you are a woman that has a slim body with some weight around your midsection, the best way to address your apple shape is to accentuate your legs and shoulders to take attention away from your middle. A high-waisted skirt or a fitted shift dress is a great option, one that Dominique Hourani
has mastered as a fashionista with significant Instagram credibility - 709,000 followers and counting. This off the shoulder dress will complement shapely legs and allow enough breathing room to conceal any problem areas. The perfect pants for women in this category are straight leg or a low-waisted option, which are low on the hips and will not add bulk to your midsection. A great coat option is a swing coat, which is arguably the most flattering choice for women with this body type. All these styles helping you Own The Look
