From my experience, the easiest pieces to wear are the ones that suit your body shape best.
Even if you’re not able to articulate it, I promise this is true.
So when you’re adding new pieces to your wardrobe each season, you can make your life so much easier by adding current pieces that also suit your shape well.
If you have a rectangle body shape, these three options might be the right-for-you choices this season.
1. Cropped Jacket
I love the idea of wearing this cropped jacket casually with a long tank (to balance proportions) and a distressed pair of jeans.
… but you could easily wear it as an edgy work jacket with black pants and a white blouse.
… or you could toss it on over your little black dress to make the dress more casual—a great out for drinks with friends.
2. High-Waisted Pants
… you could also wear these pants to a more professional office with a beautiful white blazer.
…. or glam them up for evening with a sequin blouse and some jewellery bling.
3. Two-Tone Baseball Cap
I love that although the outfit pictured above is extremely casual, it still looks pulled together. The knotted t-shirt gives curve to your shape and leather bracelet adds a finishing touch.
… although, this hat might be perfect-for-you piece to throw on even more casually with sweats and hide a bad hair day.
… or worn as a juxtaposed evening outfit with rolled up skinny jeans and high heels for drinks on your favourite patio.
