What to Wear on Top

Among the tops that those with a triangular body shape can choose, there may be asymmetrical blouses, cuts that will make their shoulders wider, that is, padded jackets or T-shirts. Especially padded T-shirts have become very fashionable lately. In addition, V-neck tops are among those that can be preferred. We have only one rule: Whatever you do, remember to draw attention to your top.

Highlight the Top

It is necessary to keep the attention on the upper sections as much as possible. Tops that will create a wide shoulder effect and emphasize the thin waist detail can be preferred. So, let’s list the things you should and shouldn’t choose for the top.

First of all, since the shoulders are narrow in the triangular body shape, it would be good for you to choose embroidered or feathered tops on the shoulder and collar sections. As you see in the photos below, these kinds of tops are very helpful for you to show your shoulders better.

Second, since your waist is thin, you can choose tight, waist-fitting clothes in the upper part. I think these kinds of tops look very stylish and cool. I really love to wear them in my daily life.


Especially the sleeveless crops you see in the first photo will be a savior in every color. It is a must-have in every wardrobe. You can wear them with any jeans you want. Also, these crops can look good with a skirt too.

Another suggestion is to make belts for you one of your most preferred accessories. For example, if you want to do an outfit with a shirt and a jacket, wearing a thin belt on your shirt to emphasize the waist is a good tactic to apply.

Also, you can opt for brighter colors and large prints on the upper body. These will make the shoulders and bust a little wider and balance the whole-body look.

We can also talk about outerwear for those with a triangular body shape. In my opinion, the only thing that people with this body type should pay attention to when choosing a coat is that it is a belted coat. In this way, a thin waist and wide hips can come to the fore.

Also, short coats and jackets can look pretty good.

What to Wear on Bottom

In fact, most women with a triangular body shape say that they have difficulties in choosing clothes. It is risky for them to buy items such as trousers, especially when shopping online. This is because their hips are wider while their waists are very thin. For example, even if the trousers pass through the hips, it is too loose for the waist. On the contrary, the trousers may not pass through the hips sometimes. Therefore, they have to take the clothes they bought to the tailor.

Skirt and Dress

Now that we’ve drawn attention to the top, it’s time to talk about the bottom side. The first suggestion is A-shaped dresses and skirts that are the best way to show off your slim waist. When choosing A-cut dresses and skirts, you should be careful not to be extra baggy. You should choose a piece that fits your body.

Also, you can show your height taller by combining the dresses and skirts you wear with high heels.

Finally, there is something I want to add. Although A-cut skirts and dresses are recommended, tight clothing suits well the triangle body shape.

Jeans and Trousers

Another important issue for a triangle body shape woman is the choice of jeans and trousers. The most suitable pants model for the triangular body shape is wide-leg pants. Considering that it has been very trendy in recent years and is worn by everyone, I can say that it is time to turn to wide-leg pants.

In addition, flared pants are another model that will fit perfectly with the triangular body shape. The only thing you need to pay attention to is choosing high waist jeans and trousers.

High waist, loose fabric trousers are also a perfect fit for a triangular body shape. I also love to wear fabric pants. I can say that it shows the body very well. But if you have a short length, it is useful to choose shoes that will make you look taller.

The first and most important accessory is, of course, BELTS! You can achieve the tactic of highlighting your waist, which I have mentioned throughout the entire article, thanks to belts. It is beneficial to buy a variety of belts, regardless of whether they are thin, thick, basic, or fancy. I especially love the thick belts used with high waist jeans. In addition, the belts used in the dresses can make the outfit pretty sexy.


Earrings and Necklaces

I have already mentioned the importance of highlighting the top. That’s why using big and flashy earrings and necklaces is a great idea! I especially love the multiple earrings. As you can see in the photo, the harmony created with very different earrings is very appealing to the eye. I love all sizes of round earrings. Those with a triangular body shape should also prefer round earrings. Especially large round earrings will be quite beautiful. I also love multiple necklaces. It can also be a good tactic for those with triangular body shapes to draw attention to the upper part.
