If you have a Rectangle body shape aka H shape (part one here),
it’s almost like the Hourglass but without the defined waist.
H or rectangle shapes have similar width of shoulders, hips with a less defined waist.
What will flatter your figure ?
> Low waisted belt Tunics
> Round open necklines
> Peplum tops
> Structured jackets that shape the waist
> Tops with gathered waists
> Belted trench coats
> Slim fit, skinny, boot cut pants
> Drop waist dresses
> A line and pencil Skirts
What to avoid?
> Straight lines from head to toe
> High waisted pants
> Cropped tops
> Boxy jackets or coats as well double breasted coats and jackets; boxy pleats
Instead draw attention to head or foot area with statement jewelry or fashion forward shoes. No detail at the waist except for vertical details and seams.
Be careful of pocket detail on jackets. Look for jet pockets that are in the same color as the jacket which don’t emphasize the horizontal effect that pockets can create.
