Style Tips for Every Body Type: Featuring Heritage & Roe's Diverse Range of Apparel

Fashion is a form of self-expression and empowerment, and knowing how to dress for your body type can enhance your confidence and showcase your best features. Heritage & Roe offers a wide variety of apparel that caters to all shapes and sizes, making it easy to find outfits that look great and feel comfortable. This blog will guide you through styling tips for different body types, using Heritage & Roe's diverse clothing lines.

1. Pear Body Shape

Individuals with a pear body shape have wider hips than shoulders, creating a beautifully curved silhouette. The key is to balance the proportions.

  • Tops: Opt for eye-catching tops with bold prints, bright colors, or embellishments. Heritage & Roe's floral blouses or ruffled tops can draw attention upwards.
  • Bottoms: A-line skirts and flared pants from Heritage & Roe can help balance the hip area, while darker colors minimize wider hips.
  • Dresses: Look for dresses that cinch at the waist and flare out at the hips, such as the empire line or fit-and-flare dresses available at Heritage & Roe.

2. Apple Body Shape

Those with an apple body type tend to carry weight around their midsection with slimmer legs. The goal is to elongate the torso and show off the legs.

  • Tops: Choose tops with a V-neck or deep scoop neck from Heritage & Roe to create a lengthening effect. Flowy tunics can also be flattering.
  • Bottoms: Straight-leg pants or leggings from Heritage & Roe can showcase slender legs. Opt for a high waistline to tuck in the midsection.
  • Dresses: Empire waist dresses or those with a belt just below the bust can emphasize your strengths, available in various styles at Heritage & Roe.

3. Hourglass Body Shape

Characterized by balanced shoulders and hips with a defined waist, the hourglass shape is versatile.

  • Tops: Wrap tops or fitted blouses from Heritage & Roe that highlight the waist are ideal.
  • Bottoms: High-waisted skirts or pants accentuate the waistline. Heritage & Roe’s pencil skirts or tailored trousers are perfect matches.
  • Dresses: Bodycon or wrap dresses from Heritage & Roe celebrate the natural curves of the hourglass figure.

4. Rectangle Body Shape

With little difference between the measurements of the hips, waist, and shoulders, rectangle body shapes benefit from creating the illusion of curves.

  • Tops: Ruffles, peplums, and layering can add dimension. Heritage & Roe offers a selection of detailed tops that can enhance the upper body.
  • Bottoms: Belts can help cinch the waist on loose dresses or tops. Also, flared pants from Heritage & Roe can add curves.
  • Dresses: Choose dresses that add curves, like those with ruching or belts at the waist, available at Heritage & Roe.

5. Inverted Triangle Body Shape

This body type features broader shoulders compared to the hips. The strategy here is to enhance the lower body while softening the shoulder line.

  • Tops: Opt for simple, streamlined tops. Darker colors on top can minimize the breadth of the shoulders.
  • Bottoms: Emphasize your lower body with brightly colored pants or full skirts from Heritage & Roe.
  • Dresses: A-line dresses can balance out the upper body, making them a great choice from Heritage & Roe.

Accessories and Finishing Touches

Heritage & Roe also offers a range of accessories that can complement any outfit and help balance your silhouette. Belts, scarves, and jewelry can draw attention to your best features and add a personal touch to your ensemble.


Dressing according to your body type not only flatters your natural shape but also boosts your confidence. Heritage & Roe’s diverse range of apparel offers something for everyone, regardless of body shape. By choosing the right garments and styles, you can enhance your wardrobe and feel fabulous in what you wear. Remember, the key is to wear what you love and what makes you feel good, using these guidelines as a starting point to explore and express your personal style.
