Quick Fashion Tips For Pear Body Types

Below are Quick Tips for Pear Body Types. The objective of dressing your body type is to create the illusion of an hourglass figure. No matter what your weight is, balancing your body creates the most pleasing effect.

Create Balance with Color

Wear light or bright colors on your upper body and stick to dark colors for your lower body. Always buy dark wash jeans and stay away from whiskering (faded vertical lines) at the hips.

Clothing Shapes for Pear Body Types

The key to dressing a pear body type is to draw attention to your upper body while deemphasizing your lower body to create a balanced appearance. Your neck and shoulders are two of your best assets. Strapless dresses and tops look good on you, however, to create a more curvaceous effect add volume to your upper body by mixing and matching suggested separates.

Dresses for Pear Body Types

Choose dresses with a-line skirts, fitted waists and cuts or embellishments that draw attention and add volume (or the illusion of volume) to your bust and shoulders. Wrap dresses with a full/flirty shoulder (flutter sleeves, princess cut) and a-line skirt are particularly flattering.

Tops for Pear Body Types

Choose tops with wide necklines and embellishments that draw attention and add volume (or the illusion of volume) to your bust and shoulders while emphasizing a waistline. When selecting jackets, choose ones with a structured shoulder and nipped-in waist. Jackets and tops that come to the hip-bone are the most flattering on your body type.

Bottoms for Pear Body Types

Look for a-line skirts or skirts that skim your body. Choose pants with simple pockets or no pockets at all. Stick with straight-leg jeans that fall straight down from the widest part of your hip. Avoid jeans with whiskering at the hips. Never wear pants with a tapered leg and go with a mid-rise waist.
