Rectangle

This outline is commonly perceived to be the best body shape, although tall, willowy women can often feel unfeminine. Well fitted clothes are the best option but it is essential to ensure that trousers and shirt sleeves are long enough. The willow shape should avoid wearing men’s clothes and opt for more feminine pieces instead.

Willows should aim to create shape using the right cuts, fabrics and prints. Textured and printed designs create volume on the upper body, making the willow shape appear slightly curvier.

Another way to enhance feminine curves is by wearing belts, wrap-shirts, A-line skirts and jeans with pockets. Vertical stripes should be avoided and outfits should be accessorized with chunky scarves or jewellery.
