Shape Style Profile

You're a V if

  • top half appears larger than bottom half
  • straight shoulder line
  • neat waist and bum
  • often killer legs
  • when you gain weight, it shows up first in the chest and tummy

Best Looks

Visually break up your shoulder line and create proportion with your lower half.

Stylist tip

You get a total green light on pattern, volume and interesting details on your bottom half. Pair them with simple V necks or soft vertically oriented styles (rather than horizontal) on top. Generally, darker on top and lighter on bottom is most flattering.
