The Apple Shape Wardrobe: Purple Floral Dress Take Two + A Trick For Choosing a Purse that Flatters the Figure

* All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1 ‘and 140lbs. Also, I am petite and have a high waist and short torso.

If you’re not into the grungy look with combat boots and a vest and you’re more into the girly, feminine look, this same dress can be transformed with just the help of some cute flats and a just as bright crossbody purse (in my favorite color whoohoo!)

A tip for apple shapes

A crossbody bag somehow makes me feel more svelte. I think it adds bulk to my lacking hip area and emphasizes the smallest part of my waist with the diagonal line right over the smallest part of my waist.

What about you? Are you more into the edgy grunge look with this dress or the feminine girly look?

Other outfit items similar to what I’m wearing(when available): This similar smock top dress hugs in all the right places and is loose in all the right places.  Similar crossbody purse. Similar purple flats. Violet fuchsia beret.
