Now, let’s get back to the task in hand…………
The Strawberry Definition
- Wider shoulders
- Smaller Hips
- Slim Legs
- Larger Bust
- Creating an inverted triangle shape (strawberry)
If you have been following our body shape feature you will instantly know that strawberry shapes are required to balance their proportions by drawing attention to their bottom half. Adding volume, print and colour are techniques to ensure that the eye is led to the desired area. Full skirts with pleating are perfect to add that necessary volume and wearing pattern will demand attention. Team with simple tops and jackets that are slimline and avoid detailing and embellishments at the shoulders. This also applies to dresses that are well suited to the strawberry shape.
The primary focus is your slender legs. Don’t be shy to wear bold coloured or striking patterned trousers to make your legs pop. Again add volume through pleating techniques around the waistband or a wide leg that fits snug around the bottom area.
