Here I picked some new modern outfits "inspiration" together with information of how to dress your body shape. I hope you find this useful!

What depicts a pear? Well, this is when you hold more weight in your lower half, and your upper body is noticeably smaller. It’s also known as the reverse triangle shape. You usually have narrow shoulders, back, and bust, but start to get curvy at the waist, hips and thighs. This is probably the most common shape in women, so you will easily be able to find separates that fit.

1- Wear appropriately sized clothing. If people within this body type wear underwear or pants that are too small, it can create a “muffin top” effect. This will make you appear chubby and ungainly. Furthermore, people with this body type often find that too-tight pants sink down their hips and become baggy around the buttocks. Make sure your pants fit properly and buy styles that rest on the middle of your hips to avoid sagging.

2- Dress to accentuate your upper body. Wearing flowing, bright colored tops will help balance the shape of your body. Patterns, frill, and layers can work well on shirts and tops for women too. For men, stick with balancing the upper body by avoiding tight neck-lines and horizontal stripes.[9] Men should also look for vertical stripes on shirts.
Women with this body type look especially good in crop-tops and high-waist shorts, a fashion trend popular with hipster girls.
Wearing black is a great option for slimming the figure.

3- Wear straight-leg pants. This is especially important for men with this body type. Avoid slim-fitting pants which will unbalance your body shape even further.[10] Wide pants can be flattering, but make sure that they aren’t so wide that they add too much bulk to your lower half.


Wear tops with a fitted waist.
Wear necklines that accentuate the shoulders and chest, such as off the shoulder, boat neck, or wide v or scoop necks.
Bright colors and bold patterns on top, with muted and darker tones on the bottom.
Wrap shirts are a great way to accentuate your small waist, while the diagonal lines draw the eyes to the chest.
Structured blazers with a darted waist and pockets at the top.
A-line skirts
Straight leg pants that fall from the waist, straight down.
Wear layers on the top half, such as scarves, jackets, kimonos, etc.


Light colored bottoms- our eye is always drawn to the lightest part first
Long loose jackets or cardigans with pockets at the waist
Wear pants with embellished pockets on the rear
Wear jeans with whiskering at the hips
Skinny Jeans
Any hem that stops right in the middle of your hips. Either above or below is good, just not right at it.

  1. Very nice tips and I really love these looks !


  2. Great tips and I love the outfits you put together. Though I have the opposite body type, I think I could still wing some of the looks you put up here. Take care

    1. I am sure these outfits would look nice on other body shapes too. I just wanted to highlight that pear body should never wear tight things in the lower body part such as slim jeans. Thank you for sharing your thoughts :-)

  3. Love this article! I also have a pear shape and love wearing the styles you featured in your post!



  4. I love the first picture, especially the trousers. The way the fit is so flattering and nice!

    1. Thank you, I will be visiting your blog soon too.

  5. I saw this article on Pinterest when researching around the type of dresses that flatter my pear body shape. As a young woman living with a poor body image I found this article so ignorant and out dated... You replied to a comment saying 'pear shapes' should never wear 'tight things [bottoms]' such as skinny jeans - suggesting girls with weight on their bottom halves should never draw attention to or embrace their curves. You also wrote as a 'don't' that light coloured bottoms shouldn't be worn by pear shaped figures - as to not draw attention to the lower body. Having a pear shaped body is not shameful. Possessing weight on your legs and hips is not shameful. How contradictory that you should write a blog on flattering the shape of a woman's body but simultaneously insult it. Blogs about fashion in the twenty first century shouldn't be telling girls what they CAN'T wear but teach women how to dress in order to make themselves feel good and confident (I imagine that this was your intention when creating this article but it appears you think every woman should aspire to be thin).

    2. @Anonymous YES. As a fashion stylist myself, it's about accentuating what you have and loving your body, not covering what you hate. Pear-shaped girls can most definitely rock fitted bottoms--and should! A pencil skirt/fitted pants and loose blouse is incredibly flattering to a pear-shaped body. Don't think you have to disguise your shape, ladies. You're a women--flaunt it!

  6. nice tips! even tho pear might be the most common shape, i find that no pears are used as models or in photo shoots....
