THE STRAIGHT BODY
- Your bust and shoulders are about the same width as your hip-line
- You have little or no waist definition
- You have a smaller bust size and legs
- Your waist measures 1”-8” smaller than the bust
Athletic and toned, this body type has the luxury of always looking in shape. With no feature out of balance, this body type is relatively easy to style as rather than hiding a feature you are looking to create one.
Give your body the illusion of curves with Ridhi Mehra’s black net anarkali with gold detailing. Strategically placed, this embroidery snakes around the body to enhance the waist on even the straightest of bodies. Wear it with your hair loose and flowing, a maang tikka and some statement earrings to play up the femininity of the look.
Alternatively, if you prefer a less traditional look then try this gold and ivory dhoti kurta by Anamika Khanna. The contrast work on the kurta jacket, the gold sequin work on the bodice and the cream applique leaves on the bottom, meets at the waistline and gives the impression of a narrow waist. This look is perfect for a Diwali party or cocktail. Wear it with your hair up, a pair of statement earrings and a pop of red lipstick.
Stay tuned as we tackle the Pear shape next week…
