Day 5, The Apple

Today is Day 5 of my Body shape, today is the day of The Apple!

The Apple – Carries weight around the tummy area, has amazing legs and great arms

The aim for myself is to draw the eye away from the tummy area and highlight the more flattering areas.

Great tops and tunic styles for the apple are those that skim over the tummy ( try the blouson or peplum shaped garment ) also the empire line that gathers under the bust draws the eye away from the tummy showing a lovely set of boobs!
This lovely tunic is from Style  a great website for plus size ladies. This great tunic is perfect for the Apple shape as it is an empire line style which fits over the bust and floats over the tummy line.

This great Empire line top, again from perfect for the Apple shape, team it with a pair of skinny jeans to look amazing

This is an amazing shaped dress for the Apple shape, perfect from Phase 8. It sits perfectly on the bust then drops to create a lovely line to the knees.
Fenwright Manson also carry dresses of this style.

As the arms are more often than not slim sleeveless and short sleeves are great, other sleeve styles would be the angel sleeve and the blouson.
I am loving this top from Karen Millen at House of Fraser, this draped jersey vest creates movement and illusion around the tummy around the tummy area which is just what you need. As it is a vest top it also highlights your great arms and shoulders.

This is another great style for the Apple shape, it is known as the Blouson style, this specific one from H&M has pretty feminine sleeves drawing the eye to the arms and has a fixed band at the bottom of the garment. By having the fixed band at the bottom it creates movement above, therefore, disguising the tummy.
I love the top!

For the bottom half anything that is flat fronted will be brilliant for the apple as it carries no bulk and will therefore, flatten the tummy line. A line skirts are excellent together with side fastening trousers.

These lovely flat fronted, high waisted,wide leg trousers from Ralf Lauren at House of Fraser are amazing and will make yo look stunning with a flat tummy. Team it with a top like the vest above or a great blouson style shirt.

Colours need to be kept darker around the tummy area to minimise
I hope some of these hints are tips are useful....tomorrow Accessories!
