Welcome to Fashion Takeout: What's your body shape?

Where we style you for your next time out and provide fashion advice.

Hey ladies, my name is Somone Winn and I’m the girl behind Osher. Being stuck in the house during this terrible time has made me two things…BORED and SUPER BORED! Who else has changed their views from the bed to the couch over and over and over again lol? We’re in the same boat then girl, and I’m ready to get out!

But while I’ve been stuck in quarantine mode, I’ve given more thought to creating a fun blog to inspire my fashionistas and ladies who are discovering their style, we all got to start somewhere, right? In no way do I want to make this blog super uptight and extremely professional. I’m aiming for more of a relaxed community for women who want to know how to improve their style and show it off in the process.


So who else is guilty of going to our favorite online store and seeing all the models looking drop dead gorgeous in the exact outfit we imagined wearing, BUT then when it comes in…it looks like…well, it looks like crap on lol! Like our hips didn’t do that hourglass effect thing we saw, our booties didn’t sit up at attention,

we kinda just looked like the outfit wore us, instead. Especially for me, since I’m built like a walking lollipop. Just a head on a straight body, no curves, no bumps lol. I’m literally laughing while writing this but it’s so true! Still cute though! *snaps fingers*


But back to what's important. Let me share the secrets to finding complimenting and stylish clothes that will be perfect for your banging body type. Let’s start, look below…


So let's talk body types. I think sometimes as women we get a little self-conscious and secretly insecure because some of us feel that our bodies don't meet the standards that fashion has deemed "beautiful". I'm definitely guilty of this assumption. As a millennial, I feel as if we have adopted the notion that every beautiful and successful girl has hundreds of thousands of followers and the PERFECT hourglass body with designer bags and shoes galore. BUT, is that really the case?


I'm here to tell you, embrace your body, and show off what you got!

Let's take a look at a few different body shapes that you will be able to relate to...and who would would I be if I didn't give you some examples of some complimenting styles to pair with your body style?? Let's go ahead and dive in...


Here, I wanted to use Lizzo as an energetic and confident example for the round body shape. A round body shape is also known as apple, or even circular.


  • Your shoulders, bust, waist, and hips are pretty uniform in measurement.

  • Your waistline might be undefined.

  • You have a large bust, slender legs, and full midsection.

Keep in mind, your body could be made up of more than one ingredient. You may find yourself relating to more than just one type of body shape.

TRY WEARING:

- Off the shoulder tops or dresses will show a little skin drawing eyes to those beautiful shoulders.

- Wrap styled tops or dresses normally have adjustable ties, which helps define your waistline at your will.

- High-waisted styled jeans would be perfect to accentuate your waistline while drawing attention to the illusion of lengthy legs.

- Boot cut/flare styled jeans are also a must, as they hug your thighs, they create a balanced look between your upper and lower part of legs.


Our favorite Princess Diaries star, Anne Hathaway, shows us how a rectangular body shape is royalty. A rectangular body shape is common for athletes, often called an athletic build.


  • Your hips and bust are balanced.

  • Your waistline is straight, not very defined.

  • Your legs are slender or shapely, which could be one of your best features when wearing certain outfits.

Keep in mind, your body could be made up of more than one ingredient. You may find yourself relating to more than just one type of body shape.

TRY WEARING:

- Sweetheart shaped tops create a curvy neckline that contours your bust and neck.

- Peplum styled tops create a snatched waistline and a beautiful flow from the top half to the bottom half of your body.

- High-waisted styled jeans would also be perfect to accentuate your waistline while drawing attention to the illusion of lengthy legs.

- Flare jeans are a great way to fill in your hips as it flows out towards your ankles.

I had to step back in time and highlight Marilyn Monroe for her curvalicious hourglass figure. In some cases, the hourglass body shape can be similar to a figure eight body shape. If you need a modern example, turn to Beyoncé.


  • Your shoulders and hips are equal in width.

  • Your waistline is defined.

  • Your bust and bottom are likely to be large.


Keep in mind, your body could be made up of more than one ingredient. You may find yourself relating to more than just one type of body shape.

TRY WEARING:

- V-neck neckline tops are a great option as they highlight your midsection.

- Peplum styled tops create a snatched waistline and beautiful flow from the top half to the bottom half of your body.

- High-waisted styled jeans would also be perfect to accentuate your waistline while drawing attention to your curvaceous figure.

- Skinny styled jeans show off your curves and accentuate your defined waistline.


Remember the bomb and mysteriously butt kicking protagonist Letty from Fast and Furious? Yeah? Great, because Michelle Rodriguez is representing for all woman with an inverted triangle body shape! Many gymnasts, such as Simone Biles, also have inverted triangle shaped bodies.

  • Your shoulders are the broadest part of your body.

  • Your hips and waist are narrow.

  • Your waistline is small and subtle.

Keep in mind, your body could be made up of more than one ingredient.

TRY WEARING:

- V-neck tops are a great option as they highlight the shape of your neckline and chest.

- Peplum styled tops create a snatched waistline and beautiful flow from the top half to the bottom half of your body.

- Boyfriend styled jeans help provide curves in your hip and thigh area, giving a little more dimension.

- Flared jeans will help create symmetry from the width of your shoulders to the hem of your jeans.


Once again, your body could be a melting pot of multiple body types, which is completely normal and okay.

I hope you enjoyed my first blog post, let me know what you think in the comment section. What body shape did you relate to?
