Dressing up becomes easier than ever when you know what types of clothing work best in flattering your body shape.
From coats to crop tops, pencil skirts and breezy blouses, see which pieces will look fabulous on you.
For pear shaped bodies, the widest part of your body is your hip area. Your goal in building your wardrobe should be picking pieces that highlight your top half to balance out and elongate your figure.
Draw attention upward by showing off more skin in your shoulder or chest area. An off-shoulder dress, like the Emilio De LA Morena Paloma Off-The-Shoulder Mini Dress, with a flared skirt would be perfect – the bare shoulders take attention away from your problem area, while the flared skirt accentuates your waist while hiding your hips.
A structured jacket ala Giambattista Valli’s Crystal-Embellished Tweed Jacket with striking embellishments is another way to draw attention away from your lower body. The structured shoulders of the jacket will also make your bottom-half appear slimmer.
Ditch the pencil skirt. An A-line cut, such as the Embroidered A-Line Wool Skirt from Jupe by Jackie Pampanini will accentuate the tiniest part of your waist while its flared design conceals your hips.
As for your denims and pants, opt for a boot-cut, like those Alexander McQueen Wool Flared Pants. This particular design achieves two things: firstly,it draws attention away from your hips, and secondly, the loose hem balances out your hips, resulting in a more proportioned figure.
