How to Dress Your Rectangle Body Type
Be sure to check out the pics on my Pinterest page for even more ideas.
NOTE: The pictures below are examples to copy by “shopping your closet”. If you do decide to purchase something, I recommend shopping at your local thrift store, Goodwill, or consignment shops for deals on high-quality items.
For the Rectangle Body Type, here are some general guidelines. (For specifics, please check out the Style Academy.)
- soft fabrics that drape
- clothing that gives the illusion of a waistline
- details at the hips and shoulders
In the examples below, the different Clothing/Dressing Style Personalities are shown, but not explained. Read the Blog post about it here.
Also, the links to the Polyvore sets are below each picture. Links within the explanations go to ‘less expensive’ options. Full disclosure: most are affiliate links — which means I make a few pennies if you click on them. So, thanks for clicking!!!
First, a Classic personality which prefers a smart, neat and tidy look. Classics like to play it safe. They don’t necessarily follow fashion. They like to keep things simple and structured. They enjoy, and invest in, high quality items. The Classic look will be symmetrical with even hems — nothing edged, fringed, or scalloped.
The edgy or rebellious style dresser doesn’t want to be boxed in, they don’t want to be like everyone else. They’re unconventional, left-of center, a rebellious Rocker chic. Anything with studs, or torn or has zippers, even the shock of wearing something with a stark personality contrast.
