Styling tip: Pear Shape’s Perfect Dress

 

If you are a fellow pear shape lady, the best little black dress for you are the one with an A cut skirt. This style helps your waist look smaller and hide your lower half. To get attention to the top try a V neck cut of a bold necklace.

Stick to What Fits You!

This tip is for all my friends who love to look good but don’t have time (or sometime don’t like ) to go shopping.

If you find a dress that fits you perfectly, take it to a good tailor and have the tailor re create the dress in different colors, prints and even materials.  But make sure it is not the same dress. Change the neck line, the arms, etc but always keeping the same fit that you love.

Change of Season Outfit: Spring 2011


When the season changes from winter to spring of summer to fall it is always a bit confusing what to wear. You start the day cold but later it get a bit warmer. Here are some ideas that help me wear fabulous outfits during this time.

Denim

My favorite jeans during this time are the boyfriend style. This style is very casual but you can always dress it up a little. Most type of shoes go with this style of jeans. To keep warm in the morning you can add a light blazer or cardigan.

 

Dress

I picked a romantic flower dress because that is a HUGE trend for spring. For this one add a chunky cardigan for chill mornings or afternoon.

Pants

For this style of pants you need a bit more dressy shoes. Again for this one you can add a blazer or a light cardigan if the weather requires it.

 

Shorts

I picked a long sleeve t-shirt to make it proportional with the shorts. Added wedges because they are extremely in this spring

Chic in Shorts


If you are just over dresses for chic events, but don’t want to wear pants, a fabulous option to try is mixing a sleek tailored pair of shorts a nice top and mix it with tights and a cute pair of heels.

I first learn this trend from my good friend and fellow blogger Angela.
