How To Dress The Banana Body Type

How To Dress The Banana Body Type

To begin the new year, I’m talking about the different body types of women. To dress with confidence, we need to know what looks best on our body type. Remember God made each of us unique!

On Tuesday, we discussed the Apple body type. Today, we’re moving on to the Banana body type. This is also referred to as the rectangle body type. (If I could pick, this is the body type I would want.)

How To Dress The Banana Body Type

Here are the characteristics of the Banana Body Type. Do any of these describe you?

            • Your shoulders, waist and hips are all about the same width
            • You have a small- medium bust
            • You are balanced and your waist is not defined
            • You tend to put on weight in the stomach especially after menopause

Here are some guidelines on what the banana body type can wear. Remember these are only guidelines and they’re a good starting point.

As a banana body type you will want to create more curves to bring out your feminine side. You can do this by wearing clothes that help define the waist.

            • Wear tops and jackets that emphasize the waist
            • Wear a belted coat
            • Strong blocks of color help define your body
            • Tops that are boat neck or scooped neck look best. Highlight with a statement necklace.
            • Jackets that taper and end right below the waist create curves.  A belted jacket is the best.
            • You will likely look good in A line dresses and pencil skirts
            • Loose dresses with waist defining belts
            • Skinny jeans will look good on your body type
            • Slightly flared trousers will also look great on you as it will add more shape to your body.
            • For shoes go with the rounded look in flats and pumps

Fashion Over 40-Winter Outfits

Happy Hump Day! Well, today I’m sharing some winter outfits and can I just say the weather has been brutal. Fashion has not been as important as survival!

For some reason the theme color this week seems to be tan. I have no idea why except again, I was trying to stay warm!

One of the great things about after Christmas, is all the sales on winter clothes. Courtney (my daughter) and I spent some quality time together and did some shopping.

After reading through your comments from the survey many of you wanted to see some clothes that you could wear to work. Jeans are not an option.

I work two days outside the home and my work clothes consist of scrubs (I’m a dental hygienist). But I do like to dress up and so I’m going to be more consistent in showing you those outfits.

This time of year I love a turtleneck because our weather is cold. This is a simple but classic winter outfit.

I love the ankle pant and I thought these pants could be worn well into spring with a different blouse.

I also styled this outfit with short black boots.
