‘You wear your clothes, the clothes don’t wear you’ Shaahid Amir decodes dressing according to your body type


Each of us is unique, and so are our bodies. Fashion is not about looking thin; it’s about accentuating your shape and enhancing what you have. And who knows that better than designer Shaahid Amir? Here are his tips on how to dress according to your body type to bring out your inner Goddess.

1. Pear
People with pear-shaped bodies have well-defined waists and hips that are wider than the shoulders. Think Kate Winslet and Ileana D’Cruz. Opt for tops and dresses that show off the arms and shoulders. Play around with sweetheart or plunging necklines, and scoop necks. Dresses with asymmetric hemlines and tulip skirts help slim the hips and thighs.

2. Wedge
Naomi Campbell, Demi Moore, and Renee Zellweger are perfect examples of a wedge-shaped body. This body type is also known as the inverted triangle. The shoulders and chest are wide, and waist and hips are narrow. People with this body type should accentuate their lower body while softening the shoulders and upper body. Clothes that create the illusion of a waist work really well.

3. Rectangular
Arms and legs are usually the best assets of people with a rectangular body type. The waist, hips, and shoulders are almost similar in measurement. Create curves like Natalie Portman and Kate Hudson do through A-line skirts and layered tops. This takes the focus off the torso and waist.

4. Apple
Apple-shaped people have broad torsos and narrow hips. Most of their weight is above the hips and the waistline is minimal.Their fashion goal should be to elongate the torso and show off the legs. Jennifer Hudson and Drew Barrymore have cracked the code through their outfits with empire waists or A-line hems. A V-neck top can also help create the illusion of a longer torso.

5. Hour glass
Who doesn’t love a curvy Salma Hayek or Scarlet Johannsen? People with the hourglass body type should show off their curves, curves and more curves! Baggy clothing can add bulk, so steer away from those. Fitted dresses a belt can highlight a tiny waist, while V-neck or sweetheart necklines slim down the bust.
