What to wear

Inverted Triangle Body Type

Your goal is to create volume and width around your hip area and to make your lower body to look the same width and length as your upper body. Wear darker colors on top and lighter on the bottom. Pleated and flared skirts work very well as well as bubble and tulip styles.  Wear wide legged or flared at the bottom pants. Make sure to define the waistline using belts or choosing fitted styles. Wear V neck, fitted tops avoiding big shoulders and details.
