This is the second in a series of articles where we make fashion suggestions for different body types based on using optical illusion garments. Our first article was about the apple shaped woman. In this article we want to talk about the clothing choices that work for the pear shaped woman. This woman generally has hips that are wider than her shoulders.

Our list is meant as a guideline. The take away for the pear shaped woman is to emphasize the slimmer areas of her body and move the eye away from the hips.

To balance your body shape, you want to create proportionality. Tops that broaden your shoulders with a horizontal line, boat necks, or colored yokes are good choices. Emphasize your positive attributes by wearing shaped tops and sweaters in bright colors and prints that attract the eye upward away from the hips. Remember, shaped is not tight. Tight tops will make your hip area look larger. Tops are best when they fall below the waist. Tops with dark panels at the sides are something to look for.  

A-line skirts are perfect for your shape as well as low rise trousers with straight or boot cut legs. Skinny jeans and tapered legs will emphasize your hips. Stay away from side pockets and side zippers.
