Basics for a Pear Shapely Wardrobe

Every one has a fantasy wardrobe composed of a myriad of items that only occasionally get to see the light of day or catch a glimmer of moonlight. But when it comes down it, chances are that we wear or favorite pieces time and time again and that makes up the core of our wardrobes.

To get the most out of their figures and wardrobes, Pear Shapely gals need to have four basic elements on which the rest of their outfits are hinged. It doesn’t matter what color or price point you choose to build the underpinnings of your day-to-day wear as long as the garments fit beautifully and are constructed well.

The four key basic elements for a Pear Shapely wardrobe include:

Bootleg Bottoms: My two favorites are the Editors Pants with cotton from Express and the Shelby Jeans from Lucky Brand Dungarees. Ultimately the cut of the pants will balance out your hips because of the leg widens below the knee and the bottom will have a slight flair

Horizontal Neckline Tops: There are thousands of patterns and styles to choose from but the key is if you are wearing a flared pant, your top should be a bit more fitted or structured to ultimately highlight your whittled middle. One great example is the Windsor Scoop Neck Top on Anthropology ($98):

Windsor Scoop Neck Top: Anthropology

The neckline will balance out the top, the puckered gatherings in the middle will show off your curves and highlight your smaller waist and the fabric on the length of the top will flatter your hips. Either put a layering t underneath or a cropped cardigan on top and your curves will rock!

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:

Priorities Black Cotton Blazer: Bluefly

A-line, circle or flared skirts: No Pear Shapely Wardrobe would be complete without this essential item. The frock needs to fit well on top and open up on the bottom to make the most of your shape. Anthropologie has their online skirt section set up by cut so you can pick out your favorite but the one that caught my eye was this beauty in a retro inspired print by Leifsdottir’s:


Of course the work of Hurricane by Jane will go with any and all of the fashions listed above, so why not go and check out for yourself!
