The key rule to dress your body shape is to wear clothes that define your waist so that your cut the attention near your waist giving an illusion of defined waist. Wear more curve enhancing inner-wear. Avoid wearing stiff material clothes show off shoulder and back more than cleavage.
1)Necklines- wear scoop neckline, sweetheart neck, v necks usually anything that elongates your frame. If you wear anything too deep play it off with interesting camisole to give definition to your look.
2)Top- wear tops that nip at your waist or add belt near your waist. Lucky you, you can wear any kind of top. Any detailed top is your savior also you can add belt and enhance its looks more. Add accessories to your top to bring attention more to upper half. Avoid slouchy tops as the bulk up and make you look shapeless.
3)Dress- same rule goes for dress, wear dress with empire waist dress, off shoulders/ strapless dress, nipped bodycon dress, deep v neck dress, boat neck dress. Try drop waist dress as you are the body type who can pull it off like no other.
4)Pants- any kind of pants/jeans suit you slim or wide legged jeans. The slimmer the better as it looks curvy as it hugs your figure. You can also wear pleated or baggy bottom with fitted top. If you have slim waist wear any kind and length of shorts to show it off.

7)Jackets- wear ones with nipped waist or added belt jackets. You can also wear A-line jackets. Try any kind but try and avoid short jacket that end above you waist.
8)Accessories- belt is your friend .Just make sure it isn’t much embellished. If you have long waist then divide it with heavy belt. Bulk up on accessories as you can’t have enough. Wear statement neck-piece or earring (don’t wear both at once). The rule is one statement piece at a time. Avoid waist length bags instead go for handbag or sling bags.
Shoes- Wear statement shoes to give illusion of curves. Try tennis shoes, loafers, moccasins and boots with straps, flat sandals, ballerinas you have many options.
The main tip I would give you is avoid anything boxy (right from clothes-shoes). Also no two rectangular shaped female are same so keep experimenting and see what suits you the best as this is a generalization of the research.
