The best part about having an hourglass figure? Almost every style of clothing looks good on you! You can wear anything from short sundresses to fitted pants and everything in between. The key is making sure that your outfit hugs your curves so everyone knows what a babe you are! In this article, we will be discussing more hourglass body types. Do you have an hourglass body type? If so, You're in luck—we've got awesome tips for you!
Choose dresses and tops with a fitted waistline. If you're wearing a dress, tie it tightly around the middle. The tighter you tie it, the more dramatic an effect you'll get.
If you're wearing a blazer or jacket, let it hang loosely at the sides but cinch it in at the waist with a belt.
Choose tops that are cut to draw attention to your neckline and collarbones. This will help balance out your wider hips.
Wear pants that hug your legs but flare slightly at the bottom—this will broaden your hips in a way that flatters your small waist and balances out your upper body.
Try wearing clothes with vertical stripes to create the illusion of a longer torso and legs, or wear something with a plunging neckline to accentuate your curves.
Dress in a classic A-line. A dress with a classic A-line cut is one of the best silhouettes for hourglass-shaped women. The skirt should start outfitted at the waist and then gently flare out toward the floor.
This highlights a narrow waist, gives ample room for larger hips and busts, and balances out an overall curvy figure. It also works well with longer lengths, which help to elongate larger legs and create an overall slimming effect from head to toe. You'll want to stick with solid colors and simple patterns to avoid looking busy or top-heavy.
A Brief Comprehensive Wardrobe Guide
Jeans and top
If you have an hourglass shape, go for high-waisted jeans and do not wear a low waist. This is because a high waist will make your legs look longer and it will accentuate your curves.
For the top, you can wear anything that fits you, but if you want to bring more attention to your waist, a crop top or a tucked-in shirt will do just fine.
You can wear any color of jeans, but if you want to make your legs look longer, dark colors are best. For the top, choose any color that suits your style!
If you have an hourglass shape, wrap dresses will be a good option for you.
Wrap dresses are a flattering option for hourglass shapes because they showcase your curves, while still giving you the comfort and ease of movement of a loose dress. They also work well with all types of tops—from short-sleeved to long-sleeved—and can be worn as easily in summer or winter.
If you have an hourglass shape, a pencil skirt is a good choice. The straight-cut edges of the skirt will provide the definition that you need to emphasize you're natural curves. To complete the look, pair it with a blouse that flows out at the waist or a crop top that draws attention to your slimmer waist.
A pencil skirt also works for those with pear shapes or rectangular figures. The extra definition around the hips and thighs can help give pear shapes more room to move while providing additional curves to rectangular figures. Pair this with a top that adds volume above the waist—a cinched blazer or loose blouse are both good options here.
If you have an hourglass shape, a peplum blouse or top is a good choice for you!
A peplum top is one that has extra fabric around the waistline than flares out. This can help to draw attention to the waistline and give the illusion of having a smaller waist, which is something most people with hourglass shapes desire.
However, if you have broad shoulders, have a larger bust size, or are tall, you may want to avoid peplum tops as they can make you look heavier than you actually are.
