o A-Line skirts or dresses that fall around or below the knee area draw attention away from the hips.
o Straight leg or a slight boot cut trouser leg works best on pear shaped figures. Stay away from hi-waist pants.
o Avoid pants that narrow at the bottom. In fact, avoid pieces that make you look wider at the bottom.
o Avoid light colored pants or skirts. In addition, stay away from heavy patterns, loud prints or details such as large pockets around the hips.
o V-necks, open collars or turtle necks brings the attention upwards to the face. Remember, the more flattering the neck line is, the more likely it is to draw the eye upwards.
o Stay away from very tight or baggy shirts and tops. Instead opt for fitted [ but not skin tight] shirts and tops or button front tops. Choose bold and bright colors on the top and keep your lower half simple.
o A wrap dress is an ideal addition to your wardrobe, as it drapes the body in such a way that the lower portion is camouflaged, while your best curves are highlighted.
o Avoid jackets that are too long as they can make your bottom half appear bigger.
o Use accessories to enhance your shape and look. Focus on accessorizing the upper portion of your body, instead of heavy belts and embellishments on the lower half.
o Accessories such as scarves, chunky necklaces and chandelier earrings can make you appear flirty and fun. However, do not load yourself with too many bulky pieces. The key is to maintain a balance.
