The trend: Graphic black and white
The runway: Diane von Furstenberg
Spring forward in this fab graphically printed ensemble that teams a fitted A-line sleeveless tunic with relaxed pants.

Your way: The designer of this dress must have had Triangle body shapes in mind. Those black and white bursts manage to define the waist and slim the hips at the same time.
Your way: The giant black and white pop art checkerboard print on this flirty skirt will definitely get you noticed—and the A-line shape will ensure you’re getting noticed in just the right way.
The trend: Shorts suits
The runway: Elie Saab
Dark solid shorts in a relaxed silhouette become chic when paired with a fitted jacket in the same hue.
Your way: True fashionistas will eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for a year to be able to pay for this splurge-worthy brilliant twist on the shorts suit. A pajama-style silk blazer and matching shorts (cut forgivingly wide for Triangle gals) looks like a double-breasted suit, but will make you feel like Hugh Hefner.

Your way: Longer, dark shorts teamed with a spring green blouse with a tie detail at the waist and a striped blazer will draw eyes up and away from a Triangle shape’s wider lower half.
The trend: Bold stripes
