Ask Sare: Dressing a Pear Shaped Body

Hey Lovelies!  Welcome to another Ask Sare.  I am excited to be hearing more questions from you lately.  For this week's Ask Sare, a reader was curious about the best way to disguise a larger bottom on a pear shaped body.
The outfit I styled was inspired by the idea of focusing on the waist, which for a pear shaped body I find most important.  It draws the eyes to the smallest part of your body, instead of the largest.  Whether it's a high waisted skirt/pants (like these photos), a belt detailing at the waist or a fit and flare dress, these are my favourite ways to extenuate the smallest part on a pear shaped body.  Here are some other guidelines for dressing a pear shape: keep bolder patterns for the top, statement necklaces are a great way to draw the attention up from your hips and clean lines are always best for bottoms.

[Statement necklaces & ruffles near the face are a great way to draw the eye up.]

Have a fabulous weekend & keep sending me those questions!
