The key to dressing a Triangle/Spoon body type is to draw attention to your upper body while de-emphasizing your tummy and hips to create a more balanced appearance and create the illusion of an hourglass figure. Your legs are one of your best asset, so feel free to play with skirt lengths and show them off!
Find tops that will help balance your lower half while accentuating your defined waist and camouflaging any tummy bulges:
*Tops with empire waists.
*Off the shoulder, boat-neck tops, wide V or U necks.
*Tops with crouching or embellishments around the bust.
*Tops that skim your midsection without adding volume.
*Strapless tops that show off your shoulders.
*Shirts with empire waists with fabric that gently floats away from the body below the waist.
*Shirts with draped fabric with a low, banded waist will hide tummy bulges. * Strapless, flutter sleeve or tops with embellishments around the bust or neck for the best effect.
*Baby doll cuts are almost always flattering on spoon body shapes. The empire waist accents to smallest part of your torso and the flowing fabric.
*Wrap-style or embellished busts. This emphasize your upper body, helping to visually balance your figure.
*Shirts with full sleeves and details around the bust to help balance your lower body. Choose shirts that nip in high on the waist and them skim away around the tummy.
*Jackets with a structured shoulder, wide collar and nipped-in waist that gently skim away from your body below the waist work perfectly with a spoon figure.
Find bottoms that will minimize your lower half:
*Word to the wise avoid details such as embellished pockets & flap pockets. Mini skirts were made for you show off your shapely legs.
* Pants with straight legs (stay away from flares). Choose solid colors in darker washes. Choose wide waist-bands to camouflage tummy-bulges.
*Wear simple, dark colored, mid-rise pants with no (or minimal) pockets. Choose relaxed fits that fall from the widest part of your hip.
*Select boot or trouser cut jeans in dark washes with simple back pockets that fall straight from the widest part of the hip. *Skinny jeans can also be a good choice when paired with the right top.
* Skirts cuts and lengths look good on you. A-line skirts that add minimal volume to your lower half look especially good. Avoid skirts with embellishments that add volume to your hips.
*Straight skirts or pencil skirts usually look great on a spoon body shape when paired with the right top. Feel free to play with length and show off your great legs!
