Party Styles for Your Body Shape: Inverted Triangle

Can’t find a style that makes you feel good?

Discovering your body shape may be the answer to getting it right every time!

What’s an Inverted Triangle?

Don’t worry – you don’t have “man shoulders” (any excuse to quote Mean Girls) – but there are certain styles that could flatter you more than others.

You may be an inverted triangle if:

  • Your shoulders are slightly wider than your hips by 3 inches or more
  • Your hips are a similar width to your waist

Party Styles That Were Made for You!

The Skater Dress

Rose Gold Skater Dress

Romantic at Heart Rose Gold Lace Top Double Satin Skater Skirt Mini Dress

In order to create the illusion of a sexy hourglass shape, anything that draws attention to your hips/bottom half is ideal. Not only is this rose gold satin dress absolutely gorgeous, it’ll balance out your proportions too with a layered skater skirt. The deep v neckline draws the eye down to your gorgeous waist whilst the delicate fabric gives the appearance of more petite shoulders.

The Wide Leg Jumpsuit

Sequin Peplum Jumpsuit

Wearing a wide leg jumpsuit will balance out your proportions, unlike a skinny leg which will only draw the eye down to your ankles. This pink sequin jumpsuit is super sparkly and SO glam, plus really flattering for Inverted Triangles. Keeping the shoulders bare and adding a peplum hem draws the eye straight to the waist!

The Lace Detail Co-Ord

Pink Satin Co-ord

If you’re a lover of the small details, then opting for detail on your bottom half will give the illusion of slightly wider hips. This pink satin co-ord is perfect, as the delicate lace panels on either side of the mini skirt balance out the hips whilst the strapless top is fairly simple.
