The Art of Wearing Hijab Part 4: Evening Wear. A Strawberry Body Type

Dressing Inverted Triangle or Strawberry body shape can come in pretty tricky yet extremely logic. The whole effort should be fixed on luring the eyes into looking up and down instead of left and right across the physic. The trick is to minimize the broad shoulders by balancing the lower body with volume and softening the shoulders area.
Basically do the opposite to what pear shapes do!

Strawberry body shape should wear:
1- Necklines that create narrow shoulders illusion (V-neck, plunging V-neck, scoop, halter, wide straps or gathered neckline formal dresses or top)
2- dark colour tops and light colour bottom
3- Diagonal cut sleeves
4- Avoid puffy sleeves and horizontal cut sleeves
5- Tops with raglan sleeves, dolman sleeves and kimono sleeves
6- Embellishment and detailing on your skirt and bottom dress (beadings, lace, appliqué, ruffles, prints or pleating)
7- Narrow collars and lapels or go collarless (Mandarin collars are your best friends)
8- Long necklaces
9- Jackets, cardigans or tops with wide collars and lapels
10- Volumized hijabis
11- Wide pants or jeans (bootlegs/bell-bottoms, flared and wide-leg pants)
12- Flared skirts and dresses (A-line, pleated, tulip cut

Strawberry body shape should avoid:

1- Necklines that elongate your broad shoulders (bateau, off-the-shoulders, spaghetti straps, square and strapless necklines)

Suggested necklines: V-neck, wide strap, halter, and scoop neck.

Suggested silhouette: A-line, empire, ball gown, mermaid, and trumpet.
