Hi I'm Alicia Richmond. Today I'm going to talk about the rectangle body shape. It is straight through the waist, long legs and no curves. The rectangle body shape is literally straight up and down so a straight line from the shoulder through the hips. Now with this body type we want to add a little bit of curve in. On Lauren, texture is everything. A textured layering top right here will give some length to her waist and then her legs are so long, we love to highlight that part of her body so a really nice jegging will give proportion to the leg and torso ratio. Now on Carol, we've done a maxi skirt. Maxi skirts are great on rectangle bodies because you've got that straight up and down. To give her some curve through the waist, we chose a top that had a little bit of texture to it and curved seams. Now to really play off that curved seam, the jacket has a curved seam right here to give the illusion of more curve through the waistline. So when you are a rectangle body, always think, try to add some curve through the torso and through the waist.
