Description: You have broad shoulders, a full waist and thinner legs.

What looks great on you: Full skirts, wide-leg pants and jackets that hit at your widest part. Look for tops without much extra volume so it doesn’t cause any imbalance against your legs. You can focus on playing up and showing off your legs too.
