Fabrics : Soft and drapey/flowy fabrics would soften your frame and look elegant. You can use stiff and textured fabrics for your tops to break your column-like silhouette.

Accessories : To create some curves, you can use round toe shoes. Ballerina flats, clogs and other flat shoes, also sneakers, tennis shoes, medium heels and ankle boots with embellishments are good alternatives.

Choose handbags that naturally sit on your waist area. Satchel bags, hobo bags are good options. Avoid long strapped bags such as cross body bags that rest below your hips. 

You can use scarves with fold up and knot styles. Dark colour, slim, belts with no embellishments are also recommended in order to create illusion of a waist line if you would like to do so. 

Medium length, fine or chunky necklaces, big earrings and hair accessories would draw attention to upward. You can choose fine necklaces such as several long strands or beads as well.
