V-type / inverted triangle
You are a V-type with an athletic figure!
For those of us who are inverted triangles, our shoulders are broader than our hips. Balance out your V-shaped silhouette by accentuating your lower body rather than your upper body. Inverted triangles often have a more ‘athletic’ build with narrow hips, which is why ‘softening’ the shoulders is important. When selecting a pair of trousers or a skirt, bright or light colours and patterns are a great way to give your lower body more oomph. By taking this tack you put the focus on the lower body, which helps camouflage the shoulders. When deciding on the length of top pieces, for example tops or jackets, hip length is your best bet. For the upper body, the inverted triangle should go for fabrics with a fluid drape, but opt for a stiffer fabric for skirts or trousers.
