Strategize your style so that you emphasize your upper body and minimize your hips and thighs. So avoid styles that tend to over-emphasize hips and thighs. For example, if you wear a gathered skirt, your hips will look even bigger and make you look more out of balance.
Play up your face, bust, neckline, and shoulders, and create some waist definition by calling attention to your slimmest areas from under the bust to your waistline. Wearing a sleeve that makes the shoulders appear broader also is a good technique and will make your figure look more like an hourglass shape.
In our example pictured above, Lucy Liu does everything right. You wouldn't know from looking at her in this outfit that she has a triangle shaped figure. Her V-neckline, high heels, and monochromatic color scheme all make her look taller, and her short sleeves create the illusion of broader shoulders, balancing her hips. A slim belt emphasizes a slim waist, and the peplum grazes the top of her hips without making them look bigger.
