Inverted Triangle

If you have an inverted triangle shape, you tend to have shoulders that are wider than your hips, along with an athletic build.Given the breadth of your shoulders, the main idea for those with an inverted triangle shape is to draw attention from your top half to you slimmer lower body and legs. You can do this using certain pattern or colour combinations, or by wearing clothes that accentuate your bottom.Now that you know what to highlight, read on to see the styles to keep an eye out for the next time you’re shopping at Pulse!

TIP: Inverted triangle shapes look best when playing up their their amazing legs and/or their arms. In general, silhouettes that don’t rely on a traditionally structured waistline are your hardest working pieces. Draw attention to you legs and keep any volume or major details to bottom half. Avoid busy patterns on top or puffy sleeves that accentuate the shoulders!
