Best Blazers for Pear Shaped Lasses

Hello fellow curvy girls! Sorry I’ve been off the beaten pear path for the past couple of days, but since I am a responsible, law abiding citizen who answered the call of serving my country in the form of jury duty, it is legally my number one responsibility. Thankfully the LA municipal has free wireless internet and I have a laptop, so you cannot keep a good, Pear Shapely woman down for too long (unless that is exactly what she wants).

Anyway, around LA county and the entire country, the air is chilling and fall fashion is plentiful. Layers are the key to surviving cooler nights, staying fashion savvy and adorable blazers are just the thing wear.  Pear Shapely ladies need to be extremely careful in the blazer selection process to avoid fashion mayhem.

Regardless of the color, fabric and price point of your blazer there are several fitting that Pear Shapely ladies need to pay attention too:

  • Avoid boxy shapes-look for a blazer with a more feminine cut that cuts in at the waist to accentuate your best feature, your curves
  • Shoulder structure-after the linebacker look went out in the 80’s, the words “shoulder pads” were never uttered with the same intent however, a slight hint of padding will help balance your upper torso with your hips
  • Length-almost any length blazer can work as long as the other two features are part of the garment

For example, consider this Free People plaid blazer on Bluefly.com ($89):

Although there are no shoulder pads in the construction, the ruffle detail combined with the plaid will help balance out your top compared with your bottom and the single button closure will provide the appropriate waist detail.

Depending on your office for work you can pair the garment dark denim jeans and a simple solid top of your choice. If you work in a more creative environment a straight black skirt just above the knee combined with solid black tights and engineer boots would provide an awesome twist.

To top it all off , a bit of bling from Hurricane by Jane L.L.C. Since the jacket makes a bold enough statement on it’s own the simplicity of the Circle Choker ($42) in sterling silver would do the trick and you can feel free to pair it with the stud earrings of your choice:

    […] Structured Blazer: As long as the piece is not boxy, hits the hipbones and draws the attention of the viewing eye upwards, you will be in excellent shape. If you are only going to buy one blazer this year and do not have a basic black one in your wardrobe then this one from Priorities priced at under $58 will fill the void: […]
