Belt


A rectangle would benefit from adding a belt to their look.  This helps to cinch in the waist and give attention to the waist line.  You don’t want a ton of bulk so avoid added fabric and anything else that will add bulk.

Details


Adding details to the hips and shoulders will help to balance the body.  Pocket details, buttons, or destroyed denim and anything that can bring attention to the hips.  Scalloped edges and pleats are another great way to give the illusion of of an hourglass shape.  Finally, printed shorts are another great option.

Fit


A loose fit or a a bubble style short or flared short with a tie waist are also a great option.  It gives the illusion that the hips are wider creating an hourglass body shape.  Try to avoid overly tight shorts giving yourself a little room will help give your body shape.
