Pear Body Shape

Build Your Ideal Capsule Wardrobe

In this instalment of the Your Body Shape Series I’ll be talking about the Pear body shape.  To find out if you’re a pear body shape check out the Body Shape Guide.

A Pear Body Shape Capsule Wardrobe Should Include:

A high necked shirt because it will broaden your top half.  Choose styles that have ruffles, patters, cap sleeves and embellishments.

A graphic or patterned top which will create emphasis on the top half.

A cropped cardigan with embellishment or some sort of detail on the shoulders to once again broaden your shoulders to balance your hips.

A strapless dress with a full skirt because it will draw attention to your shoulders and bust and the full skirt will flatter your hips and thighs.

An A-line skirt because the cut is very flattering to those of us with curvy hips and thighs.  Pick a dark colour or pattern.

Wide leg slacks in a dark colour with a flat front.  This style will help to elongate your leg creating an illusion of slimmer thighs.

A structured jacket with ruffles or a similar type of detail on the front – this will draw attention upwards and add bulk to your delicate top half.

 A belted trench coat with shoulder pads and a fit and flare shape.

Solid heels.  Avoid stilettos as they will make your legs and hips seem wider whereas a chunky heel will add balance.
