A reader asked me via email:
Your “Celebrity Fashion” section is cool but, which Celebrity has a Pear Shape body like mine? Please help. Thanks in advance and I hope that you keep this site available forever.
Beyoncé works those hips to the max, and don’t we love her for it? For performing and A-list events she chooses attention-seeking dresses in stretch fabrics, the shorter the better. Corseted dresses and tops by Versace help give her lift where she needs it, while dress-down days see her in tight-ass jeans with a fitted top. If you want to draw attention away from your bottom half, do as Beyoncé does and focus details higher up. She’s known for blinging chandelier earrings, but necklaces, scarves and interesting necklines will have the same effect.
If you have a pear shaped body, girl, you are in luck. Bums and hips are the new erogenous zones, so dress accordingly. Slim pencil skirts are more flattering than full prom skirts, especially with killer-heeled boots or shoes. To boost your bust try corseted tops and tailored jackets, or a plunge-front bra under an unbuttoned shirt. Halterneck dresses with an A-line skirt look great for weddings and evening events, but go easy on high-shine fabrics, which bounce light off curves.
Six must-buys for pear shapes:
* Bootleg jeans, but make sure they don’t gape at the waist
* Push-up bra to balance your top half
* Dark-coloured skirt – wear it with everything
* Wrap dress – the perfect solution for different-sized tops and bottoms
* Stripe sweater for adding inches to your top half to balance broad hips
* Pinstripe suit for a slimline effect
