The Dramatic body type is defined by Sharp Yang and is the overall combination of a strong, sharp physicality, a cool reserve, and charismatic power. A slight deviation from the following characteristics is always possible and should not be worried over as long as it does not upset the overall Sharp Yang balance.

The Dramatic Kibbe body type is characterised by long and lean lines, which gives an elongated, masculine, and powerful appearance. Your clothing lines should focus on recreating this length and sharpness.
Look for clean, long vertical lines, along with some tailoring to provide sharpness. Long and straight trousers, dresses, and coats are great. Keep your silhouette simple, straight, and clear, with very little detail and little to no colour blocking to highlight your long vertical line. Monochromatic colour schemes work best on you.
The overall shape of your clothing should be sharp and geometric - triangles, rectangles, and anything sculpted, sleek, and elongated with crisp edges.
Opt for thick and heavy fabrics that are stiff and hold their shape well.
