Style Your Body Shape: The Apple

Are you an Apple? Here are some top tips to help you dress for your shape from Trinny & Susannah.

Of all body shapes, Apples tend to be the ones with least confidence, with an average size chest, bigger tummy, flat bum and average legs. Your mid-section tends to control your wardrobe, but you can easily learn to enhance your soft skin and chest.

CELEBRITY INSPIRATIONThink Kelly Clarkson and Lily Allen.

SHOP FOR: Wide, open necklines should be your best friend, as they bring the focus to your top half. Cap sleeves will also help broaden your shoulders and a t-shirt with ruching in the middle to disguise tummy flab is a must-have. Also, be sure to invest in a good bra!

When it comes to footwear, wedges are your friend to help show off your slim calves and ankles.

AVOID: Stay away from high-waisted trousers (especially with ones with big pockets), tight t-shirts, pleated skirts and traditional jeans.
