You may have noticed some new shapes hitting the stores this season and for those of us who enjoy eating the occasional (ok, regular) pastry we can breathe a sigh of relief because these shapes are more forgiving than any in recent years.
Boxy shapes simply mean a non-fitted looser style and can apply to tops, coats, and even handbags.
Above are a couple of examples for two different age groups but don’t be afraid to experiment with either one.
If you are curvy, remember to pair your boxy tops with a slimmer bottom half – think skinny jeans or bootleg that fits through the thigh. Also, make sure your heels are chunky, not stilletto or you will look like you’re about to topple over!
For you ladies with bigger busts, be careful the new boxy shape doesn’t give you the dreaded Queen’s mono-boob look! In this case, make sure your top has a deep v to compensate.
