Remember that the accent should be on your upper body and waistline. For example, tops with embellishments, sleeves or shoulder details are a good choice. Love brave patterns and bright colors? Go for it. In addition, if the top is in a lighter color than your pants or skirt, it will be better. Again the accent will be on your upper body and your hips will look less curvy.

Clothing details:

For instance: Plunging V-necks, Cowl necks, Bell-sleeves, Scoop neck, Voluminous sleeves, Kimono Sleeves, Bell Sleeves

All of these clothing details accentuate on your upper body and create a more proportionate silhouette.

However, stay away from cropped tops as well as loose and oversize blouses and shirts. Short tops will accentuate your curvy bottom and they will make it look even curvier. The oversize blouses and shirts will not define your waist and they will make your body look shapeless. However, fitted tops or any tops that define your waistline with a hip-length hemline will elongate your body, define your waistline and make your bottom less curvy.
