Shorts For Your Shape - Rectangle

It's one of the most important things to know if you want to have a versatile wardrobe that actually makes you feel beautiful. I hear you asking in great anticipation, "What is that wardrobe saving information? I must know!" Answer: KNOW YOUR BODY SHAPE! 

When shopping, you must be aware of the style/shape of trends and apparel in general. Just because a store sells it, doesn't mean that it was meant specifically for you. It's one thing to admire a trend and it's another to purchase pieces of the trend that do not flatter your body. I know you won't believe this, but I have been guilty of it myself (insert gasp). 

With the abundance of shorts available this summer, it's only appropriate that you know which short is best for your shape. If you are a sister of the Rectangle Sorority, the pleated short above is perfect for you as they will add curves to your waist and hips...something many of us strive for. (Psst...and currently on sale at J.Crew...something else we strive for...Eeekkkk!) I'm a rectangle. Wanna know if you are? Rectangle ladies are fairly straight up and down, yet don't always have the boyish chest to match - whether God-given or Doc-given. 

P.S. If you are not a fellow Rectangle Sister or for some reason are self-conscience about your hips, you may want to stay away from pleated shorts, pants and skirts since the pleats will add fullness to your curves.
