When it comes to wearing a top with no prints, the extra added details make all the difference. In this top: ruching, shoulder button tabs, and barely there collar.

*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′ 140lbs. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

Looking for tops and bottoms with ruching details?

This asymmetrical gray skirt with ruching would especially look great on an apple shape.

If you’re looking for a wrap top with gathered fabric similar to what I’m wearing, this one is in black.

Gathering fabric horizontally around the hip/pelvic area is a genius idea for apple shapes. Check out this thin, gray shirt. 

Ohmeeegash. Obsessed with the gathering in a 3/4th sleeve.

If you’re uncomfortable wearing a tight top as an apple shape, wearing ruching is very forgiving.

Are you looking for a top with shoulder embellishments?

This long black 3/4th sleeve top has interesting shoulder details– three buttons on each side.

Of course Tory Burch would know how to place epaulets on shoulders. 

And a stone gray v-neck sweater with shoulder  button tabs and front pockets widening the hip area (yay!).
