Dressing for an apple body shape? Paying attention to your body type will make a huge difference when it comes to finding flattering clothing that lets you look and feel your best.
Apple shapes, also known as round shapes, typically have a fuller bust and mid-section and narrower hips and legs. This can make buying pants hard. Luckily, The Concept Wardrobe precisely describes what to look for:
“Wide leg, flowing trousers are very flattering on an apple body shape since they balance out the wider midsection with the slimmer legs. Prominent back and/or side pockets will add curves to your hips, such as those on cargo trousers. Trousers should be flat-fronted and should not cling to the body.” The site also approves of wide leg jeans!
