Jeans and a white t-shirt is one of the most timeless outfits of all time. It can be worn as is for a casual look, or dressed up and transformed into something more fancy. It’s simple, functional, and versatile. I think it’s safe to say we all have worn it or will wear it at some time or another, so it’s worth knowing how to get it just right for your body type.

Knowing your lines can help you buy better the first time so you don’t accumulate clothes and accessories that you don’t use. This post is a buying guide for jeans and a white t shirt for each of the five main Kibbe body types, with respect to their lines and essence.

You can Find Your Kibbe Type by taking the test here.

 

Note: This is not an analysis of the women wearing the clothes, just the styles of the clothes they are wearing. So, for example, I believe that Alessandra Ambrosio is a Flamboyant Natural, but the outfit she’s wearing leans Dramatic, so I’ve used her image in the Dramatic category.

Okay, let’s begin:

 

Dramatic

The Dramatic Kibbe body type is characterized by long, lean lines, and sharp edges. This gives an elongated, masculine (yang-dominant), and powerful appearance.

Similarly, Dramatic clothing lines are long and sharp and fabrics are stiff, creating an altogether sleek, sculpted, and elongated look. The Dramatic essence is powerful.

What makes these outfits Dramatic is the long, sharp lines and overall sleek and narrow silhouettes. The deep V, tight fit, and long sleeves of Alessandra Ambrosio‘s shirt (left), the long vertical line of Miranda Kerr’s jeans and narrow fit of her top (middle), and the sleek, almost monochromatic line of Gwyneth Paltrow’s acid wash jeans, white t-shirt, and white blazer combination all create Dramatic displays.

Natural

The Natural body type is defined by soft yang and is the overall combination of a slightly broad and angular structure, with a defined musculature. Natural clothing lines are long but wide, and with blunt edges (not sharp).

The Natural silhouette is relaxed, straight, and unconstructed. The fabrics are textured and heavy. The Natural essence is free, easy-going, and fresh.

Classic

The Kibbe Classic body type is defined by a perfect (blended) balance between yin and yang and the overall look created is tailored, smooth, and symmetrical with even edges- not a hair out of place.

Classic clothing lines are soft, straight lines or smoothly curved lines. The fabrics are high-quality, timeless, and traditional. The Classic essence is timeless, reserved, sophisticated, and polished.

What makes these outfits Classic is the clean lines, the traditional silhouettes, and the simple yet polished detailing. The blazer in Kate Middleton’s ensemble (right) creates a further sense of polish and perfectly elevates an otherwise casual look with a traditional piece that is perfect for Classics.

Romantic

The Romantic Kibbe body type is defined by lush yin and characterized by roundness and curves. The overall shape of their clothing should be round and soft and should emphasize their full hourglass figure.

Fabrics are luxurious and details are feminine (ruffles, lace, rouching). The Romantic essence is magnetic, sensual, and luxurious.

Gamine

The Gamine body type is defined by an even yet seemingly random combination of yin and yang opposites. This creates an overall very youthful and energetic appearance.

Gamine clothing lines are short and sharp and are always striving for a staccato effect. Silhouettes should be fitted and compact. Graphic elements and color usage that adds to their fun vibe are ideal. The Gamine essence is energetic, youthful, and mischievous.

What makes these outfits Gamine is the fun and excessive detailing, the boxy and cropped fits, particularly in the case of Tessa Thompson‘s outfit (left), and the boyish, graphic style of the third look (right).

Conclusion

This guide is to help sharpen your eye for what you need to look for when buying a classic jeans and t-shirt outfit by asking some simple questions. Are you better suited to smooth or textured fabric? Longer lengths or cropped styles? Slim silhouettes or loose fits? Loud or understated details? Clean or distressed finishes?

The answers to these questions are different for each of the Kibbe body types, and knowing them for yourself will help you buy better each time, and avoid the styles that don’t work for your lines and essence (i.e. the items you buy that sit at the back of your closet).
