Dressing for your figure doesn’t have to be complicated. When picking the perfect top for a longer torso, it’s all about proper proportions and perfect pairings.
Read on for Stylist, Brittany’s, top-picks for a long torso.
Tees That Hit At the Hipbone
When you reach for a simple tee, look for one that hits right at your hip bone. A V-neck draws the eye up (in the right ways). Don’t shy away from details like stripes and prints—they all help to break up your longer torso.
Look Lean in Long Tunics
Embrace your shape with a tunic—it makes a long torso look even leaner and longer! Go for a tunic that falls 2-3 inches below your hips. Avoid tops that cinch at the waist and go for a slim-fitting tunic with boho embroidery at the neckline.
Stylist Tip: The key to balancing out a long torso is to add length to your legs. Keep in mind empire waist dresses and high-waisted bottoms will do wonders for your body shape.
Tuck Tops Into Higher Waists
If you fell in love with a blouse that’s too short, grab a pair of high-rise skinnies or a high-waisted skirt. High-waisted bottoms break up your longer torso and gives the illusion of mile-long legs.
