Outfits for Hourglass Shape
Wrap tops are great on you — in cropped or flowy cuts — they accentuate your waist and enhance your hourglass figure. Smooth tops in soft fabrics such as knits and drapey silk blends, stretch fabrics that flow with your curves. V-necks and other low necklines, tops that is relatively simple and figure-hugging.
Bust-enhancing and eye-catching necklines such as scoop neck, sweetheart, bustier, V-neck, slimming necklines such as open shirt collars, V-necks, halters, cowls are great choices too. T-shirts look best when they fit your waist, have a V-neck and have some accents on the shoulders.
Shirts that accentuate your bustline and that don’t have buttons all the way to the top. Wear darker colors on top to make your bustline appear smaller, if needed. You will want to wear mostly vertical necklines to break up the line of your chest—V-shaped tops or tops with a deep neckline or blouses with the top two buttons undone. High necklines will make your bust area too bulky, if you are large-breasted. Shoulder pads are good.
Belted jackets/coats, belted vests. Little fitted jackets that tuck in your larger bust. Tailored single-breasted jackets, which will often look best when left open to create a nice elongating vertical line. Don’t hide your shape under a traditional boxy-cut jean jacket, get one in a more shaped style and softer cottons. Shawl collars work well on you.
Single-breasted coats, Coats that highlight your waist and feature a V-neck, like a wrap coat or a classic, single breasted coat. Also slightly fitted simple cardigans falling to your hipbone will look best on an hourglass body.
