[#NoBODYLeftBehind: A Series on Body Types] THE INVERTED TRIANGLE


Hey y'all! I'm continuing the series on body types here for the next couple of days.  Hopefully, you're finding this information helpful in determining your shape and the best clothing for you. Let's jump right into today's shape:  


I always thought growing up that this was my body type - and to be honest, it was.  As I grew older, I started to get hips and they balanced out my shape.  In other words, I have a ton of experience dressing this body type. You are an inverted triangle if:

  • Your shoulders and chest are broad. 
  • You have a narrow waist and hips.
  • You may have an athletic build.

The goal in dressing ANY body type is balance.  In this case, you want to highlight the beautiful parts of your shape and disguise what you dislike. Here are some do's and don'ts:

  • DON'T wear spaghetti-strap tops.
  • DO wear bright colors on the bottom.
  • DO wear wide-leg pants.
  • DO wear full skirts.
  • DON'T wear boat neckline tops.
  • DO wear high-waisted styles.
  • DO look for clothes that create the illusion of a waist.

I also included a downloadable infographic below that outlines the inverted triangle shape and what clothes look best on you.  If this is your body type, save this image to your phone and use it as a shopping guide; you'll immediately see the difference in your appearance. 

The #NoBODYLeftBehind series is just starting. Only ONE more shape left! Tomorrow is the last day. Leave your comments, questions or concerns in the box below and I'll be sure to respond.  If you found this information helpful, feel free to share on social media too! XO, Kendra
