The top: This sweater is a classic that every body type can work with, not just Rectangles body types This is just one of those knits that belongs in everyone's core closet of seasonal essentials.
The bottom: The print on the a-line tweed skirt brings something to this table when put back to the simple, cream sweater. Rectangles can work a print, a slight flare courtesy of the a-line, and everything else going on, easily back to your naturally straight lines. The volume that the sweater serves up on top balances out with everything else going on below the waist.
The rest: The fringed ankle boot, in the neutral grey, takes the look into colder temps instantly. Rectangle body types, especially those with some height, can pull off the slouchy boot hitting right at the ankle. It's just one more way to balance out proportions. The satchel is simple, also neutral, so the skirt gets to do all the talking when the fringe isn't soaking up the style spotlight. And then a slight touch of shine, courtesy of a delicate gold bracelet, pulls it all together.
The ONE thing you need to know: If the fringed ankle boot scares you, opt for a heeled, knee-high boot back to a tight, both in chocolate brown. That would be the more classic take on everything. Cover everything up with a neutral trench and you're good to go.
