Styles For Apple Body Types

 

Wrap Dresses

We’ve said it before, here actually. But wrap dresses are super flattering for ladies who have an apple body shape and make an ideal choice for the office. Just be sure to wear a cami-top underneath if it has a  particularly low/ scoop neck.

Jackets

To blazer or not to blazer? that is the question. Most blazers fall at the waist, which for most apples can be the most unflattering area, which is why most people advise staying away from a blazer. Instead, choose an open fronted long line jacket or a waterfall cardigan. We love this jacket from Evans.

Trousers

Any list of must-have workwear for the apple body shape would not be complete without mentioning straight leg trousers. This is a great fit for you but its best to avoid tapered styles as these will make you look top heavy.  You should also pay attention to the fastening of the trousers, a side zip is better than a front zip and stay away from trousers with waist pleating.

Skirts

We know that all you apple shaped lovelies A-line skirts have some lovely legs and they deserve to show off in a knee length A-line skirt. We love this kick flare skirt from Peter Hahn.
