Celebrity Doppelganger 3

With this, the final installment of our Celebrity Doppelganger series, look to the following celebs for tips on how to dress for your body shape.

In case you missed it, we previously gave tips for Short and Curvy and Short and Slim and also for Tall and Curvy and Tall and Slim body shapes.

Pear Shaped Body Shape

Look to Mischa Barton and Jennifer Lopez. The top trends you should try are:

Dresses

Shirtdresses: choose styles with top emphasizing details, like breast pockets or shoulder epaulets. These will balance your top half with your bottom half.

Jeans

Straight leg jeans are your saviour – look for a hem that at least 14 inches around. You can also wear skinny jeans with longer, layered tops.

Skirts

A line skirts will slim your hips while hinting at your curves. Stay away from busy prints (these will make you look bigger). Also steer clear of thick material which will add unwanted volume – pick simple fabrics instead.

Tops

Vests are your go-to top; wear a menswear inspired vest over a tighter top to highlight your waist and balance your curves.

Large Bust Body Shape

Dress like Jessica Simpson or Demi Moore.

Dresses and outerwear

Belted dresses and outerwear: whether it’s over a lightweight summer dress or a winter coat, adding a belt will cinch your waist and create more of an hourglass shape. Just like this with this grey Jimmy Choo for H&M dress on Demi Moore, she cinches in her waist with a black belt.

Tops

With tops, go for scoop or square neck tops. A high neckline will give the overall appearance of extra weight, so stick with a lower, but tasteful, neckline. The perfect “height” of your top should be below the collarbone but above major cleavage.

Jeans

Low rise jeans: if you try to wear high waisted pants, all anyone sees is boobs and legs. Instead, lengthen your torso by wearing a great pair of mid or low rise jeans.

Long, wrap cardigans

The wrap of a long wrap cardigan accommodates your figure and the length creates a cohesive line down your frame. In general, a cardigan is a great way to “break up” the upper body.

Athletic Body Shape

Your celebrity doppelgangers are Cameron Diaz, Jessica Biel or Glenda Gilson.Try these top trends for size:

Tops

Your body shape is lean and muscular and a racer back top or dress will show this off and you’ll be the envy of everyone.

Outerwear

Cropped jackets, especially double breasted ones look great on broad shoulders and a smaller chest. They create shape and show off your sleek torso.

Dresses

Athletic girls usually have flat stomachs and good bums. So a Herve Leger bodycon dress will look great on you, just like this pink one on Glenda Gilson.

Jeans

Wide leg trousers and jeans are perfectly tailored to show off that toned behind and soften the look of potentially bulky leg muscles.
