A strawberry body shape is quite rare. It’s also called an inverted triangle, which aptly defines this kind of figure. This shape is essentially characterised by broad, defined shoulders, larger breasts, strong upper arms, a narrow waist and thin legs.
With a strawberry shape, it’s important to accentuate the hip area to create more of an ‘hourglass effect’ and to avoid widening the upper body, so that you create an impression of equal proportions between the upper and lower body. For this reason, choose darker colours for tops and light or bright colours and patterns for the lower body.
What kinds of basics to choose?
V-necks, accessories and cuts that draw minimal attention to your upper body area are advantageous for strawberry shapes. Wear asymmetrical dresses or tops that leave one shoulder bare. Raglan sleeves for dresses and tops work especially well. Avoid square-shaped, short blazers and jackets that broaden your upper body. Because you should aim to widen your hips, A-line skirts, A-line dresses and straight, wide-cut trousers work best. Draw attention to your legs by wide-bottom skirts and dresses. Select loose, soft materials in addition to layered, A-lined styles.
