The top: The contrast in pattern on the shoulders is going to bring the eye right to the top of your body. This works in your favor Rectangle body types, because you'll be creating proportionate embellishments with the boyfriend jean on bottom. A little balanced emphasis on top and bottom will help round out your naturally straight silhouette. Speaking of bottom...
The bottom: The boyfriend jean is a trend that not all body types can pull off. So, Rectangle body types, rejoice, you can cover this one easily. The added volume on the jeans, combined with the distressed details, are carried seamlessly by your versatile frame. If you're more petite when it comes to height, make sure you keep the heel going strong. Our styling suggestion is to fold the hem of jeans up to create cuffs, just a few inches tall. If you cuff it off, you're going to really want that heel in there to extend the vertical eye-line.
The rest: The addition of a statement necklace with a little color takes this look from basic to interesting. As a Rectangle body type, can carry the additional 'oomph' at your neckline, so go for it. An easy black bag works as well, staying in-line with the relaxed, yet pulled-together, feel.
