Carla's Tips: Dress Your Body Type


Hello Latin é readers! On this post on dressing your body type we’ll be moving forward to dressing the diamond figure. First, we need to identify its traits to find the pieces that will flatter and highlight this body type. For starters, the hip area is broader than the bust and shoulders with a full midsection. The waist is undefined and the widest part of the frame. Upper legs carry some weight, but lower legs are shapely as well as arms.

Today’s muse will be Grey’s Anatomy actress Sara Ramirez. After the jump check out some fashionable options to dress your body type.

When it comes to tops focus on highlighting your bust with interesting necklines like boat-necks, wide v-necks and u-necks. Embellishments and structured, princess or flutter sleeves will also help bring the attention to your neck, bust and face. Also, find shirts that accentuate the waist either nipped or belted.

When dressing your lower bottom half think straight or wide legged pants in dark colors and with simple details. For skirts, go for A-lines or straight skirts that skim your body.


How about trying the pants and shirt or mixing prints with the floral skirt and shirt? Have a fashionable holiday season and be sure to check out my blog Haute Cocktail for more fashion finds and ideas.

Happy Haute Cocktailing,
