your buttocks are somewhat flat and your legs are slender

 

your shapely, graceful legs are your best asset

TIPS & TRICKS

square or scoop neck button downs that are nipped-in at the waist and flare at the bottom will help create a more defined waist

 

choose tailored tunic style tops that nip-in at the waist - tunics with wide or plunging necks and details around the neck are most flattering

avoid bodycon dresses

 

wear wrap tops with wide, deep V-necks and simple sleeves - they should wrap at your natural waistline and flare at the hip

 

belted safari-type jackets with prominent hip pockets and a wide, deep neckline add curves to your hips and minimize your tummy

 

tailored jackets with wide-stance collars, a nipped-in waist and flared bottom. The first button should be below your bust

 

wide-leg jeans or cargo pants with prominent front and back pockets help to balance your tummy and add curves to your lower half

 

wide-leg, flowing pants are very flattering on your body type

 

fuller flowing skirts that gently skim away from your body will help fill out your hips.

 

straight skirts with a flirty flared bottom look good on your figure when paired with a top or jacket that accentuate your hips

wrap-style tops accentuate your waist and enhance your hourglass figure. Pair straight-leg pants with a form skimming top or cargos with a fuller top to maintain your hourglass proportions.
