For a classic LBD style, we love Hale Bob’s black color block flare dress, perfect for any occasion. Pair with Lucky Brand flat sandals and a chic Ralph Lauren sunhat for a day at the beach or casual days out. Dress up your look and dance the night away with embellished heels from River Island and jewelry from Betsey Johnson.

INVERTED TRIANGLE

Directly opposite of the triangle figure is the inverted triangle shape, defined by a broad upper body and smaller lower body. Minimize your broad shoulders and emphasize your smaller waist and hipline with “A-line” dresses that flare out slightly. Channel your inner princess with a Kate Middleton inspired outfit by pairing Hale Bob’s embroidered jacquard knit A-line dress with classic Jimmy Choo black pumps and a simple yet sleek black satin clutch by White House Black Market.

We also love Hale Bob’s chic black color block A-line dress paired with Sam Edelman ankle strap heels and gold bangles for a sizzling night on the town. Or go “athleisure” with your favorite Adidas sneakers, a Tory Burch tote, and Kate Spade sunhat for simple Summer styling.
