Building outfits based on your body type is the easiest way to ensure a flattering look –  which can be especially difficult when fall layers hide your best features. Instead of piling on your clothes this season, you need to determine which outer layer pieces and cozy basics will bring out your feminine curves and your personal style! 

Not sure what body type you are and what jeans you should buy? Check out our guide to answer all these questions and more!

Once you’ve established your body type, you can start building outfits that are flattering on you, not just on influencers! Knowing which features to accentuate and how to balance your body proportions will help you find pieces you look and feel good wearing all season long.

Pear Shape

If you have a pear-shaped body type, you look great in cropped jackets! Any top that accentuates your slim shoulders and sits right above your waist will be instantly flattering. Plus, cropped jackets are so cute for fall! Another great style is a bodysuit, especially a sweater bodysuit that you can pair with your favorite denim or a flowy skirt.

Petite women, you likely struggle with finding denim and sweaters that won’t drown you in fabric and take away from your shape. You’ll want to avoid oversized pieces as a rule – look for well-fitting tops and bottoms that will accentuate your small frame. Look for petite sizing when grabbing denim and sweaters, or opt for feminine dresses this season instead. Platform boots are also a great way to add height and dimension to your look, and these are readily available in whatever style strikes your fancy!

To match your proportions with your clothing, cropped sweaters with high-waisted jeans are another great option that is functional and interchangeable all season long. You can also pair your denim with sweater bodysuits and other form-fitting tops!

Plus Size

If you struggle to find clothes you love, you probably aren’t searching for pieces that accentuate your natural waistline! Long skirts are perfect for fall, as these skirts keep you covered while displaying your curves. High-waisted denim is another great way to shape your body, and they look great with tons of different tops. Lower cut tops, like a v-neck, will have the same flattering look, as well as a perfectly oversized sweater.

Oversized sweaters are another cozy way to build flattering outfits for your body type!
