The Apple body type is most misconstrued shape with a lot of people thinking that it is the shape for a larger woman, this is so far from the truth! If you are an apple shape it means that you have a wider torso, therefor lacking a defined waist, you have broad shoulders, generally a fantastic bust, slim arms and legs and normally quite a flat bottom.
Now, to dress an apple shape it is pretty straight forward. You need to avoid billowing shapeless tops with no structure as they will make you look larger than you are as it has no waist definition, especially paired with black leggings as they make your slim legs look even slimmer! You should go for tops which have a built in waist for example try an empire line style as this will pull you in under your bust and skim over your stomach, a very flattering style for you! Also try a wrap top as they also give you definition. However if you were to wear a shapeless top then just pair it with a skinny belt so it will cinch in your waist giving your body shape. Remember you should try to go for longer tops which stop after your hips, tunics should be a staple in your wardrobe.
Necklines in dresses and tops; go for v-necks to show off some of that fantastic cleavage, plunging necklines, strapless or scoop necks also look good on you. Please avoid high necklines such as polo necks, off the shoulder, boat neck and halter necks are also not the greatest style for you. These will all make you shoulders look too broad, something you want to avoid.
Trousers and jeans look amazing on your with those fab pins! But avoid skinny black jeans, it will only make your legs look too slim making your proportions off. Try a bootcut or flare jean to balance out your shoulders. Straight leg trousers are always a winner too! To make your bottom look a bit fuller try going for jeans or trousers which have big pockets on the bum.
Now we have picked 3 looks for the studio for you to try. First up we have a work wear look. This look is perfect for autumn, the black oversized ‘coatigan’ is perfect for your shape as it still has structure, it is a longer style so it is an ideal length for you. The oversized collar creates a v slimming you middle. The white blouse looks great to create a monochrome look, again with a V-neck to flatter your bust. The trousers are slightly high waisted, which we recommend for your shape, they are slim leg but with the monochrome pattern they don’t make your legs look too slim. Being slightly top heavy you might feel like you can’t pull off a fur coat, however this ostrich feather coat is the ideal coat for you as it has a wide leather waistband to give your waist definition! It also has a V-neck so again this is very flattering for your shape. Teamed with slim leg black trousers this look is a winner for A/W! The dark blonde fur is also a fantastic colour this season. When picking an evening dress to wear we would recommend you picking mini or midi styles, to show off some leg! As these a/w months can get very cold so we have picked a midi to show you. This style is very flattering for you, it is fitted but not clingy and the black side panels give the illusion of an hourglass figure! The reptile print is a major trend this season also! The gold plate belt adds further waist definition. We have teamed it with one of our favourite fur pashminas and statement stud bag.
Autumn/Winter13 is right around the corner and our new stock has just landed in the studio (exciting!!) We have everything you could ever want for this up and coming season. First up though is small sneak peek of our faux leather range!
Leather has always been one of the biggest a/w trends, and this year is no exception! However it is very pricey, so faux leather is an amazing alternative! We have a gorgeous range of faux leathers in this year including pencil skirts, dresses and cropped boxy jackets so far!
First up we have this gorgeous pencil skirt (also available in deep cranberry) It is such a beautiful skirt and slightly matte in texture, it has unique exposed zip detail down the back of the skirt too. Pencil skirts are very versatile they can be dressed up or down, for work or for a night out, and this faux leather one is no exception! We have styled it with a loose fitting drape blouse in of the moment colour deep blue keeping it very simple, a lot of people say don’t pair black and blue, however rules were made to be broken we love this look!Next up we have the first of our faux leather dresses. This dress is the same material as the pencil skirt above, being slighty matte in texture. It has gorgeous metal studded detailing at the waist, which draws your eye in giving the illusion of you being slimmer, very flattering! It also has a v neck which is good for women with a bigger bust. This is our second faux leather dress, this time it has a bit of a sheen to it. The quilted fabric detailing on this dress makes it more interesting, and looks absolutely gorgeous on as it hugs your curves perfectly, it is to die for! Quilting is also set to be a future trend next season! Again, the way the quilted fabric has been placed it gives the illusion of a slimmer silhouette. Our last faux leather garment is this amazing biker style jacket! This is our favourite piece from the range so far! It looks absolutely stunning on, its boxy, cropped, has a gorgeous neckline and is extremely comfortable, everything you could ever want in a faux leather jacket, it fits like a glove! It could easily be dressed down with your killer jeans and a tee or dressed up with your fave LBD!What is your favourite piece from our faux leather range so far?!
