Since a boxy top don’t highlight your slim waist, pairing it with a pleated skirt with flared silhouette will keep your looks balanced and sleek. Wearing a boxy top with a pair of skinny jeans or miniskirts may sometimes work, but it can only make you look top heavy since you don’t have a waist definition. Like fashion blogger Ella Catliff, team your embellished top with a boxy silhouette with a pleated skirt in a stiff fabric like neoprene to keep everything sleek and chic.

  1. Blazer or Jacket + Shorts

Since shorts already display your legs, keeping your top a bit conservative is a way to go. Just like how you pair tank top with jeans, top team your shorts with a jacket or blazer that will keep your overall outfit balanced and proportioned. It’s up to you whether to go for a tuxedo blazer to complement your leather shorts, or a brightly colored jacket to add some pop to your denim shorts.

  1. Oversized Top + Skinny Jeans
