slim your hips and legs.
Look ideas for body type A
STRUCTURED TOP AND FLUID BOTTOM
To flesh out the bust, you can afford the strapless top, the bardot collar, the little frills on the shoulders and the patterned tops to draw the eye to your upper body. At the bottom, straight flowing pants or a pleated skirt in a high waist fluid material are ideal for marking the waist without accentuating the hips. The high waist lengthens the leg and the vertical lines of the pleated skirt will make you look taller. Especially if you add high heels.
BOYFRIEND-FIT FITTED SHOULDERED JACKET
The shoulder pad jacket is the perfect garment to widen narrow shoulders. Please note: the shoulder pads are light. It’s more about structuring rather than expanding like in the 1980s. On the other hand, mark your size well with a belt. Unless you are round: wear your jacket open with the belt tied at the back. Among the jackets that suit you best, you can afford the biker jacket with a very wide collar, the wide bomber jacket, the rigid denim jacket (take a size larger than your usual size).
COLORFUL TOP AND DARK BOTTOM
Rebalancing your figure is to direct the gaze of others to your strengths rather than your complexes. So emphasize your bust with a colorful, plain or patterned top. At the bottom, wear navy blue, brown, gray or black. But only fluid and vaporous materials will refine your legs. No too rigid textile like tweed or real denim.
HIGH WAIST STRAIGHT OR BOOTCUT PANTS
The next time you choose pants, target high waisted pants that subtly mark the waist. Remember: fluid material at all costs! Thus, your pants will rest quietly on your hips without molding or tightening them.
Another way to catch the eye to your shoulders is to wear a bold and colorful necklace. We also think of a scarf or a scarf which shows the delicacy of the neck and rests on the shoulders which will appear wider.
Avoid if you are A body type
Ban the chinos: baggy on the hips and tightened at the bottom, everything you don’t want!
Ban the peplum top: tight on the chest and shoulders which flares out on the hips: ideal for accentuating your hips which are already a little too wide.

TOP AND JACKET WITH WIDE COLLAR
To broaden your build, nothing like a flared collar like the boat neck, the Bardot collar and even the horizontal stripes (unless you have a small belly). You can also set your sights on a trench coat or a biker jacket with a large lapel at the neckline.
SKIRT OR STRAIGHT DRESS THAT DOES NOT MOLD
You have the dream morphology to wear a straight dress (also called a cover dress). If you’re uncomfortable showing off your legs, wear black opaque tights. Or bet on a dress that falls to the knee or even below the knee (if you’re tall).
A-LINE DRESS OR SKIRT
The A-line or flared cut is the perfect cut to promote a feeling of volume at the lower body and create a slimmer waist. For skirts, opt for a high waist that always refines, especially if you have a small belly.

THE WRAP DRESS OR THE CROSSED TOP
The wrap dress or crossover top are perfect for creating a slender V-neckline while marking your slim waist. Puffy or tight, everything suits you. If you have a small chest, go for a plunging square neckline instead.
BELT YOUR WAIST
Your main asset is undoubtedly your slim waist. So label it to visually balance your figure. Enrich your wardrobe with belts to wear over a long top, a dress, high-waisted pants and even a cardigan (closed if it replaces your top, or open if it is worn over).
DRESS OR TOP WITH AMERICAN ARMHOLE
The American armhole clears the shoulders to better highlight them. At the same time, if the dress adds volume to the hips while being cinched at the waist, it’s impeccable for you! Like these two models:
