How to dress an Apple Shape

An apple figure is a round shape with a thicker waist and a larger bust but great, slim legs and arms.

Here are a few key points to remember when dressing an apple shape:

• Elongate your torso to get a longer, leaner silhouette.

• Tops and jackets that flow over your mid-section will elongate your shape.

• Clothes that skim not cling will give you a softer silhouette rather than emphasising your curves.

• Show off your slim pins, ankles and arms – they are your best assets after all.

• Ruched and gathered details on your tummy will instantly flatter.

Apples should bear the following in mind when shopping for your shape:

• A shape-slimming tunic will make your torso look longer and leaner.

• Longer-length blazers will flow over your mid-section.

• Floaty, flowing blouses will give you a softer silhouette.

• Straight-cut trousers, skinny jeans, leggings, and cropped trousers to show off skinny legs and ankles.

• Printed pencil skirts will draw attention to slim legs.

• Peplum details will skim over a larger middle without clinging – like the dress below.

• Sleeveless and cap sleeve tops will emphasise skinny arms.
