Having an apple body shape doesn’t necessarily mean that you keep the doctor away- if he’s handsome, you’d like to keep him, right? It’s more about having beautiful legs, more often than not an ample and enticing bosom and being full-figured. If these words grieve you, it only means you haven’t watched Gok Wan’s “How to Look Good Naked”, and it also means that this piece will be particularly helpful.
The first thing you and well, us all need to do is rename this body type, because a good name completely changes the perception. From now on, we’ll call it the “Oprah Winfrey body type”. She’s one of the most stylish women out there and she doesn’t have the hourglass body, or as it should be rightfully called- “hey, put this sack on, you’ll look great anyways”.

Now let’s go! First of all, you must avoid wearing skirts or dresses that have ruffles in the waist area and be just as resolute about avoiding pants with voluminous pockets on the derriere. This means that if you truly love ruffles, you must learn to live without them or replace them with pleats. Maxi pleated skirts will beautifully embrace your curvaceous body and we can’t get enough of them!
Ruffles are to be avoided when it comes to tops as well, and it’s the same case for collars, especially the embroidered or embellished ones. If you want such lavish details, go for blouses that have them on the cuffs! But don’t think so much on these fashion restrictions; instead, focus on the treasures that await you and you alone: plunging necklines (if you don’t have big breasts), empire cuts and tunics all look fabulous on you! These are some of the most sensual and stylish wardrobe pieces and they don’t favor any body shape.
Although sheer pants are so in this season, we recommend you go with last season’s hit, the maxi skirts with a sheer lower part. They are most decent, while bringing a sassy vibe and they will show the world what beautiful legs you have!
Also, pants with a high waist or baggy Capris are off limits. Try pants with a medium waist. You can wear high waist pants ONLY with the blouse on top of them (not inserted in the pants) and ONLY if the blouse is not short.
If you have toned legs, you can wear shirts.
We know some of you ladies love these items, but if you have the Oprah Winfrey body type, this must be a long distance relationship. As instead, focus your lovely eyes on skirts and dresses, both midi and maxi, because they’ll accentuate your already feminine figure! If you’re tall, tea length skirts are definitely for you and if not, you’ve got two more sizes to pick from!
To accentuate your waist and hide the stomach, add a belt right bellow your breasts.
As for accessories, avoid monumental necklaces and go for extravagant earrings and colossal bracelets instead. This summer, you can pick anything from playfully painted and surreally built cuffs to thin silver elements with celestial motifs. Chandelier earrings are losing ground to funky ear cuffs that graciously fake multiple earring holes, while keeping you well away from pain! Since you have to go for an elegant style, we recommend nude kitten heels and a nude clutch. However, every woman must get her healthy dose of fashion frenzy and in that case, go for calf hair or fur clutches, drawstring and bucket bags. If you can get them in precious or embellished materials, all the better! See this article for more details.
