The 50’s were the best decade for pear fashion. Here’s why:

  1. Exaggerated necklines — criss-cross detail, scoop-neck, boat-neck, you name it.
  2. A-line and tulip skirts.
  3. Fitted waists.

This Fall and forward could be the time of the pears.

Modcloth’s sneak peak item – the “Cool It Skirt”

So I hesitated to feature this piece because like Anthropologie, ModCloth has some truly amazing stuff but consequently, you’re paying for the quality.

But this skirt was too good to pass up.

This is a sneak peak — it’s not even available yet, but you can sign up for a notification letting you know when it’s available. Because it’s guaranteed that baby’s going to sell out in hours, if not minutes.

It’s nearly 90$, but uh, you can add it to your “It was on sale!” list or your Christmas wish-list.

Why this skirt is too good of an opportunity for pear girls to pass up:

  1. It follows all of the standard “rules” a pear is to follow if they want to flatter their body type. There’s the waistline, which hugs the smallest part of the waist.
  2. Simple A-line flow
  3. It’s one block of a darker color; pair this with a simple white T and some accessories, you’ve got the perfect outfit. The combinations are endless.

Dooo it, you know you want to.

Forever 21’s Striped V-Neck Sweater

 

This bold sweater follows 2 rules that is touted on every pear fashion blog.

1) Bright, bold colors and patterns on top to bring the eye up and away from your problem areas

2) A scooped, boat, or in this case v-neckline to create visual interest where many pears are lacking (the bust area)

Lastly, the hem falls below mid-hip, which isn’t the best for pear-shaped ladies, but you can position them hem it’s not stretched down, and it sits right across that imaginary line. This will also make the material less clingy, as tops that cling to our small waists will only bring attention to the difference in width between that and our hips.
