Or, you might have an inverted-triangle body shape, which means your shoulders and chest are larger than your hips. Whatever the case, you can balance out your figure by selecting clothes that accentuate and create curves. If you have a boyish figure, create a feminine, curvy look with crew-neck shirts, tops that gather at the neck, and blouses embellished with ruffles or embroidery.

For example, horizontal patterns like stripes or a zebra pattern make your hips look wider, so choose an A-line skirt with a horizontal zig-zag pattern for a flattering effect.
