Styling Tips for Apple Shaped Beauties

Everybody is beautiful! While this guide offers suggestions on dressing for different body types, the most important thing is to wear what makes you feel confident, brings you joy and is comfortable.   


Typical characteristics of the Apple Body Shape are a large bust, narrow hips and a full midsection. This makes the body appear like an apple shape.The key to dressing an apple-shaped body is to emphasize your strengths while creating balance and proportion.

Celebrities that have Apple Shaped Bodies are Reese Witherspoon, Drew Barrymore, Mindy Kaling and Kate Winslet.


Here are some tips on the best clothing styles, cuts, and looks that are flattering for apple-shaped bodies:


Lower necklines like V-neck, Scoop, Cowl, Square and Sweetheart draw the eye upwards and create the illusion of a longer, leaner silhouette. Choose tops and dresses with these necklines to flatter your shape and accentuate your curves.



Tops that defined the waistline are the most flattering.  Remember to choose tops that fit well and provide enough room in the midsection without being too loose or too tight. Experiment with different styles to find what works best for your body shape and personal style.


Wrap: Wrap styles cinch at the waist, defining the narrowest part of the body and creating an hourglass shape.  

Peplum Tops: Peplum tops flare out from the waist, creating the illusion of curves and providing coverage for the midsection.

Flowy/Loose tops: Tops that drape away from the body can camouflage any tummy concerns while providing comfort and movement. 



Flattering dresses for the apple body shape skim over the midsection without clinging to the body.

Empire Waist: Emphasizes the narrowest part under the bust, skimming over the midsection. 

A-Line: Gently flares out from the waist, balancing proportions. 

Wrap: Defines the waist, creating an hourglass shape.





The right pants style for the apple body shape shouldn't add extra weight to the midsection but gently camouflage it. It should also balance the body. Flat fronts are best.

Straight-leg or Bootcut jeans: to create a streamlined appearance from top to bottom, enhancing your fabulous apple shape.  

Wide-leg or Flare: work because they draw the vertical line down and slightly out. 



Embracing your apple body shape is all about celebrating your curves and dressing to highlight your best features. By choosing the right necklines, jeans, tops, and dresses, you can effortlessly enhance your natural beauty and feel confident in every outfit you wear. Remember, fashion is all about expressing yourself, so embrace your unique style and let your inner beauty shine through. Stay fabulous, apples!
