Cornets are a typical tom boy shape with broad shoulders, small breasts, not much waist and slim hips and long slim legs. However, tom boy or not, this is not to say they aren’t also feminine and glamorous. This is the shape fashion designers love with those large shoulders literally acting as a coat hanger to drape their designs from on the catwalk.
Whilst the ultra waif shape (and size) of the catwalk is not how most Cornets look, it is still quite a pronounced body shape that needs to be dressed in a way that doesn’t emphasise the shoulders or upper arms as this leads to further exaggerating the inverted cone style of the body shape. Clothes that are fitted help bring the illusion of a waist which helps balance the shoulders and heels help those long slim legs draw the eye down instead of up to the shoulders.
Keep away from:
Anything shapeless that will just hang from your shoulders.
Tops that are bulky around the shoulders.
Three quarter sleeves.
Take a look at:
Wrapped knitwear and tops that nip the waist.
Flared and fluted skirts.
This body shape’s ideal look is simple, just minimize the shoulders and maximize the waist and legs to balance out your shape but don’t forget that Cornets are the stuff of fashion designers’ dreams and can be extremely sexy and feminine.
