Dressing Different Body Types: Western Runway Report

Accessorize in Style | Western Runway

Hey, everyone! Welcome to Western Runway Report! We’re the team behind Western Runway magazine—Ashley Alderson and Tiffany Cooper! We’re missing our other counterpart Jessie today but she’ll be back with us on Wednesday. 

We’ve got a lot of new faces out in the crowd today, and we’re so happy to have you! In case you’re just joining us for the first time today, the purpose of this segment is to celebrate western fashion (for both men and women), guide you through some of life’s apparel challenges, and hopefully, teach you a couple of things you may not have known! At the end of each day’s segment, we’ll also have a big giveaway that you can enter—so even if western fashion isn’t your thing, that’s reason enough to keep watching! 

Today we’re going to be diving into one of the biggest fashion challenges women face, and that’s how to dress your body type! The ladies behind Accessorize in Style do a great job of offering pieces that fit all body types, so we went over, grabbed a few pieces, and we’ve got some looks we want to show you today. 

Next up we’ve got the Straight or Athletic body type. In this body type, you have very few curves, so you need to make curves. The best way to do this is by either adding volume on top, or on the bottom. If you’re going to wear a pair of trousers, those will look best with a more form-fitting top. If you’re wanting to wear a more relaxed top, then pairing those with some skinny jeans will help to create dimension and curves. That’s exactly what this outfit does for Jocelyn and her body type. 

Finally, we’ve got the Hourglass shape. In this shape, you’ve got a tiny waist and some killer curves. What you want to do is define that waist and show those off. You want anything that’s going to be a bit more form-fitting, and show that body off. Anything v-neck is great for tops and dresses. When it comes to jeans, those super popular high-waisted jeans are going to be your best friend because they accentuate your natural waist and highlight your curves. That’s exactly what this outfit does for Kelli and her body type.
