Rashi Menda, Founder of Fashion Label IS.U Gives Styling Tips To Desi Women Based On Body Types

1. Apple Or Inverted Triangle

Dos & Don’ts For This Body TypeDos: A-line or empire cuts are ideal for you. Wear printed dresses or patterned jackets that add a layer to shift the focus. Monochrome looks, dark colours, and flowy tops will help. Flared bottoms & palazzos create balance and that’s what you need. Make high-waist bottoms your best friend! – Don’ts: Avoid bodycon dresses or tops with skinny jeans; this will make it more visible.

2. Triangle Or Pear-Shaped

Dos & Don’ts For This Body TypeDos: Wide-legged pants, A-line skirts with ruffle tops are your best friends. Skinny jeans with loose or structured tops will help you create an hourglass illusion. Broaden your shoulders by adding statement sleeves. – Don’ts: Steer clear from fitted tops and wide-leg pants together

3. Hourglass

Dos & Don’ts For This Body TypeDos: Choose dresses that sit at the right curves for you and follow the outline of these curves. Make the most of your body type as almost everything looks good on you. Bodycon & A-line dresses, V neck or plunge necklines and sweetheart will help you accentuate your upper body. Waistbelts are your go-to accessories to cinch and flaunt that inner curve. – Don’ts- Do not pair loose tops & bottoms together or what’s the point of owning an hourglass!

4. Straight/Rectangle/Athletic

Dos & Don’ts For This Body TypeDos: If you have this body type then you are hourglass minus the defined waistline. Hence, you must accentuate your arms and legs. Choose A-line skirts, ruffled and layered tops. Dresses that add definition to your bottom. Sleeveless, strapless and sweetheart lines are your thing. Blazers, long jackets and capes add the much-needed drama here. – Don’ts: Avoid bodycon dresses that do not help with enhancing your waistline.

5. Skinny

Dos & Don’ts For This Body TypeDos: Invest in high waist baggy jeans & wide-leg bottoms that will create volume on your lower body. Crop tops highlight your waistline. A simple round collar or halter neck works the best for you. Scoop & sweetheart necklines create structure around your upper body. White shirts are a no-brainer tucked in with baggy jeans. A-line dresses are your go-to cut. – Don’ts: Avoid bodycon dresses that do not help to enhance your silhouette.
