If you have a rectangle body shape, your hips and bust are balanced but you have a less defined waist. The focus for this shape is to proportionally dress the top and bottom of your body while emphasizing your waist.

If you do have a rectangle body shape, you are lucky to share the same shape as celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman, and Anne Hathaway. We can all agree that they work their figure and always look great in what they wear. Here are a few tips to look your best when dressing your rectangle body shape:

-Tapered shirts are key for your body shape. Shirts that taper in at the waist will create more curves and flatter your body.

-The length of a jacket should stop right below the waist. If it is too long, it can cover up the curve of your hips.

-Find pants that will give you shape or highlight your given shape. Instead of choosing pants that taper in and clings to your rectangular body, choose a flared or straight-legged pant.

-Try A-line skirts that flare out a bit and stop just above or at the knees to show off your calves.

-Your main accessory should be a waist belt. It is an easy solution to trimming your waist and adding a stylish touch to your look.

-A pair of eye-catching shoes can add curve to your lower body while statement jewelry such as a chunky necklace can help draw interest to your upper half.

-Allow yourself to experiment with light and bright colours to appear curvier.
