what to wear for an Hourglass Shape

The hourglass shape is the most coveted body type but knowing what to wear to flatter this body type is key to having fun with fashion.

Out of all the body shapes, hourglass body shapes really do have it all. They’re well-proportioned, have killer curves in all the right places and a distinct waist. I mean, what more could you ask for?

With this body shape, your best feature is a naturally cinched-in waist. Therefore, when doing your shopping, always go for clothes that accentuate your waist.

In this article, I will show you what to wear when you have an hourglass body shape.


Wrap tops are the perfect tops to highlight your waist. They help accentuate the waist by defining and outlining how small your waist is, while at the same time defining your hips.

Keyhole tops offer a subtle sexy detail to show off your full bust without being too revealing.

V-necked tops draw the eyes towards a defined midsection while at the same time showing off your cleavage.

Tops that end just below your hip line will make you look instantly taller (and slimmer!).


Pencil, flared and short skater skirts all look great on your curves.

High waisted pencil skirts should be your best friend. This is because they cling to the body and accentuate the waist perfectly.


Hourglass-shaped women look best in form form-fitting dresses that nip in at the waist.

That’s why they should choose wrap and fit-and-flare dresses.


High waisted pants are perfect for hourglass shaped women. Just like the high waisted skirts, these pants accentuate your waist and flatter your curves and bottoms.

Skinny jeans are also perfect for this shape because they show off your natural curves, from your waist, hips, bottoms and legs.

Pants that also come with belts are a great addition for your wardrobe because they also cinch the waist which is your greatest asset.

Coats and jackets

When choosing coats and jackets, always go for those that don’t add bulk to your frame.

Belted, cropped and long line jackets are perfect for this body shape.

Belted coats and jackets accentuate your waist while cropped jackets that land above your hips accentuate your bottom half.
