4. Hourglass: You have a curvy bust and bum and a defined waist. Think Scarlett Johansson.
How to wear...
The Peplum: Lucky you—the peplum was tailored to create the kind of curves you have naturally. Since the peplum is already the perfect cut for your torso, take this opportunity to play around with patterns and shapes. Seize the style while it’s trendy with a peplum featuring daring details like this backless black dress by Miss Selfridge with sheer paneling. You’ve got the hourglass shape to rock it so go big! Carpé peplum!
The Military Jacket: For an hourglass figure, find a jacket with a defined shoulder to balance your hips and bust. Opt for a military jacket that cinches in at the waist like this cropped coat by BCBG Max Azria. Front lapels and brass detailing will draw attention to your two best curves, and a clasp at center frames your bust and hips perfectly.
The Side Panel Jean: Welcome to your closet the side panel jean—a trouser which will not only hug your enviable bum, but will also streamline and lengthen the rest of your leg from the hip down. Opt for a pair with a black side panel to further lengthen your lower half like this pair by rag & bone.
Best on your shape!
The High-Waisted Floral Jean: The bright florals you embraced for Spring are back for Fall in dark, moody tones and wallpaper-sized prints. Wang of Refinery 29 concurs, “In darker colors fall’s dark florals feel a lot more grown-up than their pastel-hued spring cousins.” Opt for an oversized floral print in a burgundy or olive palette. A high-waisted pair is not only on trend but will emphasize your hourglass curves. This brown pair by Miss Selfridge is part cotton, part elastane, so not only are they super soft, they’ll stretch perfectly over all your curves.
