Dressing for the 4 Body Types: Pear


Lena Horne

Famous Pears: Lena Horne.

What Works: Wide-Leg Pants; a dark pair slims the thighs while creating a longer and lean silhouette. Tailored Jacket; A structured jacket defines the shoulders and upper body, which will even out the lower body’s proportions.  Boatneck Top; the wide, straight neckline broadens the shoulders to balance out the lower body. A-line skirt; look for a sturdy fabric, like a wool-blend. Bell and kimono sleeves. A great push-up bra!

What Doesn’t Work:
Shapeless, oversize sweaters; skinny jeans or pants; and skirts in a flimsy, curve-hugging fabric, like silk.

Best era for vintage dresses: 1960s. Trapeze dresses highlights the legs!
