WIWW #42 hour glass… try eggplant

you read that right… Eggplant aka no waist! I learned this week with my outfit choices that I have no natural waist.. My body shape is best described as a rectangle.. I also learned I need to learn how to better dress a rectangle.. first things first..belts at my waist are a no go.. I realize now that they do nothing for my rectangle figure suggestions? What was I thinking here with outfit #1… it looks like I was trying way too hard and it all went wrong.. I probably would have done better minus the belt

 skinny jeans – macy’s
black t shirt – target
red cardigan – old navy
necklace – SimplyCreated
belt – goodwill

Outfit fail #2 this sweater is so un-flattering for me..

sweater – JC penny’s
white longs sleeve t – old navy
pants – maurices
necklace – Metal Stamped Memories

okay outfit #3 is the best from the week but the hair.. Oy Vey… what was I thinking… it looks like it is about to take flight!

jeans- macy’s
turtle neck sweater /  earrings – maurices
belt – goodwill
Okay friends I really need help here.. Dress me please…

  1. you girls are life savors. I am so thankful for the advice..
    Cam you have saved me forever. thanks for the link it’s the most amazing blog ever!

  2. I am by no means an “expert” but I have been trying to spend some time determining what fits my body type and I came across this site and it has been very useful.


    I hope it helps you.

  3. super cute outfits! we would love for you to link up with us on sunday “sunday best dressed”. we need some help with ideas on things to wear to church, so any skirts or dresses you would like to share with us would be great! hope to see you sunday!


  4. “rectangle”, hilarious 🙂 I think the first outfit is cute if you ditch the belt. Red looks fantastic on you. My first thought was that you could wear wider leg pants so they make a straight line from your hips to your toes thus making your waist appear narrower and gives you that hour-glass shape {with a body conscious top}. I’m not an expert by any means but it might help. Also, I think our pictures are not necessarily 100% accurate due to stretching and such. Sometimes I see my post and think “WTH?!?!” 😉

  5. Stopping by from WIWW.
    I would have to agree with you on the belt in the first pic. And the sweater.
    I think maybe a pair of high-waisted, wide leg trousers and a loose blouse would look good on you. the contrast of the loose blouse and the high, fitted waist might make you look a little less rectangular. I am by no means a fashionista, though. So take that as you will. lol I am liking the look of number 3, though!
