Trends For Your Shape: Hourglass

The hourglass shape is curvy and fabulous. It’s the va va va voom of all the body types because of its more defined feminine features. This body type is meant to be loved and to be coveted by showing off your curves rather than trying to camouflage them.  The hourglass shape is best presented by owning and loving the fact that you have an hourglass shape.

The hourglass shape is defined by having a larger bust and hips with a smaller waist. Your bum is also typically rounder and more feminine. An hourglass figure can be any size, from Selma Hayek to model Ashley Graham, it’s the proportions of your body that define this figure. A female with this shape also has her weight more evening distributed through her entire body.

A skinny belt can be a friend to most body types, but the hourglass shape will thrive with just this one accessory. Specifically on an hourglass shape where your waist is your smallest part, you want to almost over-define this point by continually highlighting it. The skinny belt is ONLY meant to be worn at your waist, not through your belt loops unless the pants are high-waisted (therefore being at your natural waist).  Adding the 80’s trend with a pop of neon is a fantastic way to show off your figure and your trendy knowledge of fashion.

Wrap Coat 

 

The wool wrap coat is extremely on trend this season and is fabulous because it typically has enough room to layer underneath. This means that if you get a medium weight coat it can last from the fall well into winter by adding more layers underneath. No, this will not make you look fat. Why? Because (as I have already proclaimed), you are highlighting your waist with the wrap feature. Cinch through the middle always Miss Hourglass!!!

 

Sheath Dress

The final and most valuable piece in any hourglass wardrobe is the sheath dress. This piece will hug all of your lovely curves just right AND is a timeless. To really accentuate the beauty of your figure, choose a dress that has an obviously defined waist just like the option above. Utilizing the trend of leopard in this manner keeps it classy while properly showcasing all that your fantastic hourglass shape has to offer!
