Clothes to Wear for Inverted-Triangle Shape Figures


Wear A-line or wrap dresses that balance your broad shoulders and add curves to your thin hips and thighs. If you are fashion-forward and trendy, don’t go overboard with your outfit. Avoid sleeves or embellished shoulders.


If you have a large bosom, choose deep-V neck, U-neck and wrapped tops to draw the eye away from your shoulders. While narrow spaghetti-strap tops are a summer staple, wear thick straps instead to reduce the appearance of broad shoulders.

Skirts and Pants

Drape your hips in full, circle or A-line skirts that flare around your waistline and add curves in an instant. Need a pair of stylish pants to flatter your figure? Don a pair of wide-legged, harem or cargo pants (with large pockets) to add curves to your boyish hips, or wear low- to mid-rise jeans with a wide waistband.

Jackets, Sweaters and Coats

Belted sweaters, coats nipped at the waist and peplum jackets create curves below the waist and balance inverted triangle-shaped bodies beautifully. If you are petite, three-quarter length A-line coats combined with sky-high boots will make you appear taller, curvier and longer.
