The Art of Wearing Hijab Part 4: Evening Wear. An Apple Shaped Body

Where as dressing Apple shaped body comes down to dressing the top of the body in one of two ways: You can either strive to create a more emphatic waistline, or you can embrace the waist-less trend by wearing voluminous tops or/and dresses. Both looks are equally stylish when the correct variables are in place. The main idea is to flatter the waistline and draw attention away from the middle by so.

Apple shaped body should wear:
1- Wear V-neck tops and dresses
2- Empire waist and A-Line and Ruched for tops (tops that end below your widest part of the belly or longer)
3- Packed prints (with little negative space))
4- Pair tops with opened jacket nipped at the waist (tailored blazers and coats, opened cardigans or waistcoats, a duster coat that ends above the knee)
5- Tops that fall lower than hip bones
6- Tops with flare or cuff sleeves
7- Top with pretty shoulder, bust and neckline details (sequins or flowers)
9- Pants that are straight, flared, wide-legs, or boot cut
10- A-Line skirt, bias cut skirt, trumpet and hanky hem skirts too
11- Tunics and wrap dresses

As for evening and prom dresses wear V-neck, A-line or empire dresses. These are perfect for Apple shaped body because they can camouflage the waist area and draw attention upward and cover the belly area. Packed prints are a good choice too as they hide details and make the over all look slimmer especially at the mid area.

Stay away from wearing details at the waist if you don’t intend to attract attention there
