Fashion trends 2017 great for an apple shape: the wide belt

*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1″ and starting to show my baby bump. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

I love that fashion trends in 2017 include something I’ve come to love as an apple shape. Wide belts are on trend for 2017, according to this Elle article. Slide 17 shows wide belts featured across the runway this year. Wide belts, especially stretchy ones like the one I’m wearing above are more flattering on an apple shape’s midsection than thin belts. It acts as a corset to cinch in the waist.

Where you can get items similar to what I’m wearing

My favorite wide belt is black and stretchy.

A black felt hat that goes with just about anything.

My black boots are from Naturalizer, and oh so comfy. Great for eight hour work days on your feet.

Some basic black tights if you’re in the market. Always go for matte and opaque.

Just because you’re an apple shape doesn’t mean you can’t wear a bodycon dress. 

Just wear the right breezy kimono cardigan and wide belt with it.

Here are several floral ones that would look great with a black bodycon dress:
