How To: Dress to flatter a pear shape

Dress to flatter a pear shape

Being pear shaped means your body is smaller on top and bigger around the hips. While this can seem like a difficult body type to dress, a few tips can make a pear-shaped woman look amazing. For example, start with a bright top that calls attention to your bust. Add more volume on top with layers, such as a leather jacket. Add another brightly colored scarf to draw the eye towards your face. You've created a tough chic look very quickly!

Always make sure to emphasize your top using color, patterns or ruffles. Downplay your bottom half; clean black tailoring works well. Coats can also be great on pear shapes; oversized collars and cinched waists look amazing. Finish off with a great bag. Most importantly, have fun and wear what you love!
