Fall Must-Haves for your Body Type

Ahh, fall is in the air! And by “ahh”, I mean “crap, it’s getting cold”. But even thought I don’t really like the cold, I DO like fall fashion! The boots, the blazers, the cardigans, the jackets, the hats, ALL of it.

I also love shopping for fall items, and really just shopping in general…However, as I mentioned in a post on Tuesday, a lot of women don’t like to shop, and one of the main reasons is that they don’t know what will look good on them. To help my peeps out, I picked out one fall must-have for each body type:

Straight Body Type (“Slim and athletic”)

Must-Have: Belted Sheath Dress

Calvin Klein

Sheath dresses are definitely in for all, and the belt will create an hourglass silhouette. A striped sheath dress will also add dimension to your figure.

Hourglass Body Type (“36-24-36”)

Must-Have: V-neck Sweater Dress

 BCBG Max Azria

Rock those curves, girl! A v-neck flatters your silhouette, while the sweater material will show off your shape. Plus, you’ll be warm AND stylish.

Pear Body Type (“Bootilicious”) 

Must-Have: Comfy Graphic Sweater

3.1 Phillip Lim

Graphic sweaters are a major trend, and a great pattern or theme will create volume on the upper half of your silhouette, evening it out. Also – they’re fun!

Apple Body Type (“Cute ‘n Curvey”)

Must-Have: V-neck Cashmere Sweater


The V-neck neckline is the most flattering for rounder shapes, although a cowl neck is another good option! Cashmere sweaters never go out of style, and you can pick one in a great fall shade like red or oxblood.

Top-Heavy Type (“Got some Girls”)

Must-Have: Printed Pants


Printed pants were HUGE this summer, and the trend is continuing into the cooler months. Pair these with a simple top to draw attention to your legs. Be sure to pick a “fall-appropriate” print like the one shown above.

Well, hope this helps! Happy fall shopping, ladies!
