How To Dress Inverted Triangles

Here’s the kind of things to look out for, in each category. Obviously, the more number of right clothing you pick, the better the outfit will be on a whole.

I like to make it a point to never mix two no-nos together, but limit those to one (if you must). Additionally, adding layers on top can hide any imperfections certain clothes may show, especially when it comes to upper wear.


Tops that draw minimal attention should be used, which means dark neutral colors. Avoid any sort of print, except vertical stripes. Cap, long, bell, raglan or kimono sleeves can soften out the bold shoulders. Wide straps, gathered necks, scoop/v necklines, halter necks, asymmetrical sleeves and keyholes are also something to think about.
Some major don’ts are embellishments, off-the-shoulders, tight tops, and spaghetti straps. As far as jackets go, stick to fitted ones that taper at the waist. Long shirts add dimension to the hips. Avoid double collars and huge lapels.


Skinny jeans aren’t the best because they emphasize you as top-heavy. There’s never enough information on the subject of jeans which is why how stuff works have made a detailed guide on selecting the right pair of jeans for inverted triangle body shapes.
Alternatively, flowy bottoms bring about that well-needed balance to your body. A palazzo pant, trouser, bootcut, wide-leg or even boyfriend jean is nice. Heavy pockets can be very beneficial for you. High-waisted versions are always better.


Don’t purchase pencil skirts! However, flared, maxi, layered, tulip, pleated, aline, and similar styles are great. These can be of any length, but the longer the better.


Any dress that is fitted at the top, like at the waist, and relaxes towards the end is a good idea. The dress types in this category are bustier, wrap, princess seam, ball gown, circle, skater, etc.


Huge hip belts, cuff bracelets and clutches are accessories that can add volume to the lower half. Similarly, nude heels make a big difference by elongating the legs.
You can add dainty necklaces to complete the look, but do however avoid a huge statement around the area. Another tip is wearing your hair down and using it to cover your shoulders.
