What is a V shape?
 

The top half of your body is larger than the bottom. You have broad shoulders, a large bust and narrow hips.

 

Styling Tips

  • To create balanced proportions, add volume to your bottom half with wide leg trousers, culottes and A-line skirts.
  • Wrap, empire cut and flared dresses look great on you
  • Halternecks will cleverly balance out your wide shoulders
  • Look for tops with knot details, tie belts and elasticated middles that will accentuate your waist.
  • V-necklines are brilliant for V shapes as they elongate your neck and draw attention away from your shoulders to create balance
  • Horizontal stripes worn on your bottom half will help offset the proportions of your top
  • Soft, flowing fabrics like chiffon, satin and silk will soften your shoulder line

Athletic shoulders and a narrow lower body give your silhouette a lovely heart shaped look.


Your style goal is to add volume to your lower half, using clever tailoring to balance your wide upper body with your narrow lower body.

With tops, V-necks or soft, draped necklines help soften a strong frame, creating softer lines. Look for loose, feminine sleeves rather than form fitting ones.

With trousers, go for long, loose palazzo styles over skin tight styles. It might go against the grain, but your goal is to look for styles that make your lower body look bigger (yes really).

Embrace embellishment when it comes to dressing your lower half but keep it minimal above the waistline. Darker colours above and brighter below help create a more balanced look.

Empire line and bias cuts are fantastic for nipping you in under the bust and skimming over your mid-section.
