*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″ 143lbs. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.
How to pull off a leggings outfit as an apple shape
Sometimes when I wear a leggings oufit, I feel like it makes my lower half look longer and leaner, thus making my upper body feel even wider. Knee high boots, especially in a color contrasting the leggings provide the perfect solution. They act to balance out the upper half by cutting off the leg. So for apple shapes, I recommend pairing a leggings oufit with a knee high boot.
When choosing a cami under a cardigan, opt for a longer length to cover the bum on a leggings outfit. This elongates the torso. It is also more modest since some leggings have super thin material.
I love to finish off a lot of my outfits with a standout accessory. In this case, I use my Indiana Jones’ hat.
I love wearing black. It’s super slimming and flattering on an apple shape. Unfortunately, I also want variety. With this outfit, you get the benefit of wearing all dark colors, but also you get to work with more variety in your color palette. I think plum, navy blue and brown work well together, don’t you?

I love all the shades of purple and red that spring up in fall. Plum is especially rich and beautiful. Here are several plum cardigans to choose from:
This hat belonged to my husband’s late father. It’s my Indiana Jone’s hat. The key to the look of this hat is that the top is squarish (not round) and has an indent and the brim doesn’t fold up too much. (otherwise it would look like a cowboy hat). I also like the tie around the crown thin otherwise it looks like a fedora. Here are some great options:
