HOW TO DRESS FOR YOUR BODY SHAPE- RECTANGLE

The Rectangle body shape is characterised by lean top to bottom. The waist is relatively straight, with lean hands and legs.

Highlight: Waist

It’s one shape that can carry off any style and hence is easy to dress.

Tops:

If you are a rectangle, you can wear any shape and style in tops. To create a more defined waistline, try wrap- tops, button-down shirts, ruffles etc. Try tops with more feminine detailing. Try your hand at wearing belts, as it cinches at the waist thus highlighting it. Wear it over tops, cardigans, jackets, dresses, almost anything. You can jazz up your evenings in halter tops, which create a feminine look at shoulders. The latest buzz, Peplum tops, are also a good way to create curve at waist.

Bottoms:

A rectangle shape can pull off any lower, skinny, slim, flared, cargo, you name it. Pencil skirts that taper at bottom create an illusion of curves at bottom. If you want to look curvy, go in for stretch slim pants and wear them with heels. Just make sure that the bottoms are a good fit else it might end up looking sloppy. Corduroy trousers are also a good option during cooler weather.

Outerwear:

Again you can wear all kinds of jackets and sweaters. You can create definition by closing at waist. While wearing boxy silhouettes, put on a belt over it.

Indian Ethnic Wear:

Again here you can pull off any style or length. For a more feminine look, wear fitted short kurtis with Patiala slawar, flowy empire line long kurtis with churidar, wrap-around kurtis in all lengths. Avoid wearing straight short kurtis with churidar as it might end up making you look really straight.
Sarees can be a great occasion wear for you as it creates curves as all the right places. Try them in all fabrics and design.

Since you can wear more or less all kinds of styles, I will highlight a few tips, through images below, on how you can create curves.
