From chunky knits to western-inspired style, here are my favorite fall fashion looks, which body shapes they flatter best, and how to wear them.
Trend: Wide leg trousers
Best for: Inverted Triangle or Hourglass Shape
A wide leg trouser was made for your fuller upper half, my darling. And these flowing, loose-fit pants are a huge trend for fall. Wear them to help visually lengthen and bring balance to your top-heavy frame. Pair with a fitted, structured jacket to contain your bust and conceal a supportive bra. And don’t forget to add sky-high heels to elongate your legs.
Best for: Triangle Shape
Modern cowgirls walked practically every major runway this season. This fall, western-inspired fashion is everywhere. Look for fringing, top hats, embellishments and lots of layers. The key is to wear this trend on the top-half of your body only. This draws all attention away from fuller hips and thighs, and toward your gorgeous face instead. I mean, what bum? How can you not notice those super chic top hats?
Trend: Chunky knits
Best for: Ruler Shape
I recommend most body shapes stay away from any additional bulk—as they do just that: add volume. But a Ruler’s slender shape can easily pull off extra chunky fabrics to add welcome width to your frame and visually create va-va voom curves. So go ahead, rock the cozy, chunky knits that every runway model wore this season—it’s ideal for the chillier fall temps. Wear to work with slim-cut trousers and a belt to carve out a waistline, and then wear it on weekends with skinny jeans. Be sure to stay away from an oversize fit—baggy knits will camouflage any curves that you do have.
Trend: Hints of sheer
Best for: Hourglass
You, my darling, already have that rockin’ Hourglass bod. So, instead of giving it all away at first glance, expose just a hint of skin for a far sexier look. Embrace whisper sheer blouses and dresses straight from the fall runways. But keep the length of your dresses just at the knee or full length—it’s all about the peek-a-boo effect and leaving the rest a mystery.
Trend: Robe coats
Best for: Circle Shape
Robe-style coats with a belted waist-tie instantly create the illusion of a slimmer waistline, even if you don’t really have one. Cinch in tight to trim the look of your middle and keep you warm this fall. It’s a runway-ready look that’s easy for real women to pull off. And we all know that almost everyone else will be wearing black so embrace one in a standout print or color.
