Style approach

Play up the bottom to balance the body. We’re going for visual balance/symmetry. We're also going to create curves, especially on your lower half. Because your shape is not an extreme inverted triangle, but rather an inverted triangle/ rectangle, you can use this strategy as a guideline rather than a hard and fast rule. As long as you don't appear to widen your shoulders, you can do most anything.
