How to Dress the Inverted Triangle Body Shape

How to Dress the Inverted Triangle Body Shape


The inverted triangle tends to be the most athletic looking among the different body shapes.   Shoulders are wider than your hips, by a good couple of inches.   Your hips look straight given that your shoulders are broad and you have little to no waist definition.

The goal of dressing the inverted triangle body shape is to create the illusion of a hour glass figure by balancing out the wide top, minimising your shoulders and back, enhance your hips and highlight your legs.


Play down the top:

Tops should draw attention downward away from the shoulders.

V neck, wrap style and vertical lines in the bodice all draw attention downward.

Jackets should be narrow at the shoulders and widest at the hips.

Wear Tailored shirts and jackets.

Wear dark colored tops.

Vertical lines created with accessories will draw the attention downward

Monochromatic colors in draped styles will lengthen the body.


Play up the bottom:


Wear a belt, it will accent your waist                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Choose bottoms that enhance and flatter your lower body.

Strong visual details below the waist will draw the attention downward.

Wear pants with pockets and embellishment.

Wear wide leg or boot cut pants.

Wear a full or A-line skirt.

Wear horizontal lines on the bottom half.

Add volume with thicker fabrics on the bottom with fabrics like knit, wool or tweed.

Show off those great legs with a great pair of pumps.

Stay away from shoes with straps, they will shorten your legs.

Choosing the Right Sunglasses to Compliment Your Face Shape

Finding the right sunglasses can be as important as choosing the right makeup.  It is important to think about size, shape, color and the way the bridge affects the look of your eyes and nose.   The shape of the frames should correspond with the shape of the face:


Oval Shaped Face 

The oval shaped face looks great with just about any shape of sun glass frame.






Round Shaped Face

A round face with with full cheeks, should go for a frame that makes your face appear to be thinner.   Usually  frames that are equal to or slightly wider than the broadest part of  your face will make the face appear thinner. Softly angular frames play up an oval face. Higher temples will create a longer profile.






Square Face Shape

The square face shape has fairly straight lines at the cheeks and an obvious square jaw.  To soften these angular features, opt for glasses with soft lines or rimless  edges or reduce the angles with soft, curvy styles that will give the face some definition such as cat-eye sun glass styles. 






Heart Shaped Face

The heart shaped face or inverted triangle is characterized by wide cheekbones and a narrow jaw line.  The goal is to minimize the width of the cheekbones(this can be achieved by wearing a relatively dark frame that fits close to the head to make the upper half of the face look more in proportion).  Round frames balance and soften a wide forehead.





Oblong Face Shape

The oblong shaped face tends to have a long face; narrow chin and cheeks.  Oversize sunglasses or wrap styles tend to look best on this face shape.  Decorative or contrasting temples add width to the face.





Sunglasses are also more than a fashion statement.  They should give proper and adequate protection from harmful sun rays.
