Dress According to your body type: Indian Wear edition
The market is flooded with Indian wear showcasing different styles, cuts and colors! With the wedding season at its peak, we always get intimidated and end up picking the wrong outfit. Now, the mantra ‘one size fits all’ does not imply to Indian wear, and ‘one style suits all’ is also a farfetched idea. Always keep your body type in mind while shopping as it will help you enhance your best features making you look flawless!
Don’t know which body type you fall into? We will break it down for you:
If you are heavy at the top with slender legs, you identify as the apple shaped. The part of your body that you should show-off are your gorgeous legs, so wear outfits that enhance them. A Short kurta with churidaar is a great option for casual wear. Camouflage your midriff and make it look cinched with a fit and flare style, such as an anarkali! Look for defined cuts and form fitting silhouettes because anything loose or baggy will not create a pleasing aesthetic. Always remember to highlight your best features and rock the outfit like a diva.
Pear shaped ladies usually have narrow shoulders, slender upper body, and a broad lower body. Majority of Indian women fall under this type. Your strongest feature is your waist! What better than a saree to accentuate that defined waist. Experiment with different drapes and pick the style best suited for you. Lehengas would also look gorgeous on you. Choose a cape style blouse as it will make your shoulders look broad, making it proportionate to your hips.
Women with a rectangular body shape are usually slender and straight (shoulder-waist-hips are aligned). Create a waist by wearing outfits that are fitted at the waist. Peplum style lehengas are made for the rectangular body types as it creates a defined waist. Fish cut outfits are also a great way to enhance your shape. A gown with a fish cut style is a good option to choose for a formal affair.
If your shoulder and waist are proportionate with a cinched waist, you fall in the hourglass type. You’re one of the lucky ones, because this body type can wear almost any outfit. Indian wear looks great on hourglass body types. Choose sarees, gowns, anarkalis and lehengas because the world is your runway!
