The Pros / Cons of being a Triangle:
If you have a Triangular shaped figure your look in good! Triangles generally have a slender neckline and shoulders, and beautiful full hips with plenty of sexy backside to spare! And since you carry less weight on top you probably also have great arms and a slender mid section that may at first glance, make you appear like you actually weight less than you really do. Your flaw? Because triangles have narrow shoulders they can often appear slouched, and bottom-heavy due to their wide hips if caught wearing the wrong clothes.
What Not To Wear:
So how does one go about balancing out a triangular silhouette? If you have a triangle shaped figure the first thing you want to do is avoid clothing that makes you look bottom-heavy. This means stay away from pieces that maximize your hips; pleated skirts, poofy skirts, close fitting tulip flared skirts, wide leg jeans / trousers, low rise pants, pants with small pockets in the rear, extra detailing (such as embroidery, cargo pockets, pleating or patterns), and shiny or light-weight material that clings to close to the body. As for tops steer clear of spaghetti straps that can make you slender shoulders look week, high necklines, raglan sleeves, drop waist styles, peasant tops, or any other tops that hit across your low-hip because they draw attention to your widest point.
What To Wear:
Instead, as a triangle, if you trying to achieve a balanced silhouette you need to draw the attention back up to your shoulders and neckline. To do this look for tops that have more volume and detailing at the shoulders, and an open neckline. Try girly tops with puffed shoulders, ruffled detailing, or military styled jackets with epaulets. When choosing jackets look for ones that hit either above or below the widest part of hips; never directly on. Also consider the size of the lapels; are they in proportion to the rest of your frame? If they look to narrow they will make your upper body look even smaller, so be careful! On the bottom stick to pants with a mid rise, and either a straight or bootcut leg. Doing so will help to minimize your hips. If you prefer skirts and dressed make sure they fit closest just above the widest point of your hips and flare out and away from there.
Also try wearing bolder accessories up high; a well placed necklace at the collarbone, or chandelier earrings will work great on you!
