Tips and advice on what clothes to wear for inverted triangle shape women

If your shoulders are broader than your hips then you have what fashion land calls an inverted triangle shape (cornet or goblet in Trinny speak) . For you it's all about using fashion to draw attention away from your shoulders in order to balance them out with your hip proportions. You will also want to accentuate your more defined waist. Here’s a very quick fashion check list to show you how:

1. The most important thing to remember for your inverted triangle shape is that high necklines are a"no" as they will only draw attention to your shoulders making them appear wider. The same goes for clothes with fussy shoulder details. 

2. Your perfect dresses are figure sculpting pieces like a body-skimming A-line style or a waist-accentuating belted shirt dress that feature v or scoop necklines. 

3. Snap up an A-line skirt. The soft volume performs the perfect proportion balancing act with those shoulders. The same goes for a stylish pair of high waisted, wide legged trousers. When it comes to jeans keep it chic and simple with a straight leg.

4. A top with a drape neck detail will soften the look of your shoulders. Style this with a gorgeous tuxedo blazer. The neckline will draw the eye to the waist and away from those shoulders.
