It’s summer time and getting dressed is easy when you are familiar with your body type. If you have a classic apple shape you are endowed with a full bosom, a round tummy and generally you are slight in the hips with great legs and broader shoulders. When getting dressed the goal is always to balance your body, in this case you want to elongate your torso and give your waist a bit more definition. I suggest that you choose silhouettes that skim your body not cling. And for the summer heat opt for soft lightweight fabrics that don’t create volume.
My favorite style of summer dresses for the apple body shape is the empire waist maxi dress with a slight v-neck and the empire waist maxi dress with the smock top. The combination of the fitted bodice and the seaming under the bust gives the dress figure flattering control and shape, resulting in a fabulous easy wear dress for summer.
For an upscale casual summer look, simply designed tunics, high low tunics, v-neck blouson crossover tops and loosely fitting wrap tops paired with your favorite capris will be fashionably cool on any hot day. Embellish this look with your favorite long pendant necklace and bangles for some modern bedazzle.
Asymmetric skirts, maxi skirts and slightly a-lined skirts paired with peasant tops or a v-neck t-shirt will also be a summer stunner. If you want to look a little longer, seamless and leaner I suggest trying a monochromatic approach with this ensemble. Wear the top and the skirt in the same color or slightly different shades of the same hue for a very modern sleek appearance.
Summer has finally arrived and so have all the style options, all you have to do is get dressed!
