When it comes to personal style the apple shape often worries the most due to the fact the lack of a defined waist appears to constrain choice. And to some extent this is true but if you think logically you have two options either to create a waist or emphasis your other assets. Most of us always choose to accentuate our assets.
It doesn't really matter what you choose to do but how do you do it? If you feel you are top heavy with a large bust and no waist then dresses that divert attention away might appeal. A tunic style dress is the default option but do look for styles and details that are simple but have a sense of detail and proportion that doesn't scream 'tunic' - like this one from Beauty & the Boutique.
Then the other option is to create a waist and a peplum top or dress is a surprising current fashion asset for doing this. The key to making this shape shifter work is to get the proportions correct. Make sure the peplum is positioned where your natural waist is. The ideal is to get the peplum to disguise your stomach and create volume to the side giving the appearance of a waist and hips.
