Rectangle Trends

I did a post on dressing for your body if you’re triangle shaped about two weeks ago and now I’ve moved onto rectangle shaped! Typically a rectangle shaped body means your shoulders are as wide as your hips. You’re waist has little definition; you have a smaller bust with long legs and a flat bottom. This body type is typically more common in aging women or if you have recently gained weight. But do not worry! I am here to help you dress your best if you find yourself in this category!
