This weekend I went shopping with a client who was a pear shape. What exactly is a pear shape?
Pear Shape: When you carry your weight in thighs or hips, your shoulders are narrower than your hips, and you wear a larger size on your bottom half than your top half.
This can be a challenging shape to dress but below are some tips!
*Wear darker colors on the bottom, and avoid patterns on the bottom
*Create visual interest on the top. Wear layers on the top, color, and patterns
*Always try to accentuate your waist, wrap dresses are great for this figure
*Avoid pencil skirts
*Boot cut jeans are a great cut for a pear shaped person
*Empire waists are the best type of dress for this shape
My client found a Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress that really flattered her and it had a pattern on it that created interest. Hugo Boss also was cut well for her. She had some luck at Banana Republic with a suit and blazer and Anne Taylor.
