wardrobe essentials for your body type
Since I am asked frequently what the best top styles and jeans are to stock up on for each body type, I decided to do a post to share with you some of the best. If you have read my Recipe Box, then you’re familiar with some of these styles and probably have some sitting in your closet. Your core wardrobe is based on your core neutrals so that you can easily mix and match. Add a favorite color or two to round it out and you have an effortless wardrobe.
The best tee styles for your body type:
- Three Dots Supima Cowl Neck – the fabric is the perfect weight and with a soft draped neckline, this style looks perfect under a blazer for work or alone on the weekend. The cowl neck comes in various sleeve styles: 3/4 sleeves, short sleeves and sleeveless. Every hourglass, rectangle and inverted triangle should have one of these.
- Three Dots bateau neck tee – for triangles and gals who have smaller busts, the bateau neck tee is the essential tee you should have in your wardrobe. Again, I think Three Dots is best because they last — the quality is great.
- Ella Moss Ellassentials v-neck – with a bit of gathering at the bust, this tee flares out and skims over the belly camouflaging it nicely. It is part of their Ellassentials line which means they are quite popular and come out in new colors each season. Also at Revolve Clothing.
The best jean styles for every body type:
- AG Adriano Goldschmied Clubs – the rise is actually 8.5 inches (contrary to what is stated in the store description) which makes it the perfect mom jean without looking marmy. The bootcut leg balances out the hip and the angled back pockets (what AG is known for) makes your butt look great.
- 7 For All Mankind Gingers – this style rocks and looks good on everyone. Cut fuller through the thigh and in a beautiful, lightweight dark denim, they feel wonderful on. The rise is 9″ which covers well and is non-frumpy.
- Joe’s Muse jean – great for all body types, this style is a slight bootcut – not as flared as the AG Club. With a bit higher rise, it comes in various washes. Joe’s also does petite jeans which I think are the best in premium denim industry. Also at chickdowntown.com.
