If you have broad shoulders and narrow hips, you have a wedge body shape, also known as an inverted triangle. With this body type, you should select fashions that balance out your upper and lower body.
Casual dresses for wedges
"A dress with an A-line skirt or a wrap skirt with some movement will look great on your body type," explains fashion expert and TV personality Jeannie Mai. "The key to choosing the right dresses for you is to try and balance your body. Don't choose straight skirts or those that are too short; both will simply emphasize your broad shoulders."
It's not just the shape of the dress but the colors that can make a difference. Colorblocking is very trendy right now. "Light colored bottoms with darker tops create perfect contrast," says celebrity fashion stylist and TV personality Dawn Del Russo.
Audrina Patridge, Charlize Theron, Renee Zellweger, Jessica Simpson and Angelina Jolie are just some of the celebrities with wedge body shapes.
