Everybody Has To Do It Eventually… and sometimes often

Standard

I did it for hours yesterday. I also kept notes and took pictures. It was painful to my ego and sometimes to my waistline and butt. I still want to share it with you, because everyone has to do it. And no one likes to.

Jeans shopping.

problem areas for pear shaped women

I’m a pear. Pears tend to have problems with fat that sits on the hip(love handles/muffin top), a layer of fat over the lower abdomen(tummy pooch), and fat on the back of your thighs that sits directly under your butt(saddle bags).

My rules to follow for women with a pear shape would be these:

  • mid-rise to high-rise to reduce muffin top
  • boot cut or wide leg to de-emphasize a bigger bottom
  • minimal to no whiskering (I’ll show you why)

I tried on some that I knew would flatter(like the Madison trouser jeans) and some that I knew wouldn’t flatter(like the CK jeans) so that you could see the difference. Some I didn’t know whether or not they would flatter. That’s part of trying on jeans, though. If you don’t try, you’ll never know.

The first pair that I tried on were Lucky brand Sofia Boot cut jeans.

Do you see how the smaller leg brings attention up to the hips? It kind of makes them look bigger by comparison.

The second pair I tried were Nine West(Vintage America) mid-rise boot cut.

Do you see how the wider leg balances out a wider rear? This minimal whiskering isn’t too bad. These jeans give me a bit of a muffin top at first, but they are stretchy. Once I walked around in them for a minute they loosened up and that went away.

The third pair I tried were Lucky brand Sweet’N’Low jeans.

Do you see how the extreme whiskering and distressing can make your legs appear wider? I can see how that would be okay on a stick thin girl, but when it’s on me and it stops at the knees it makes your calves to appear to be non-existent. The eyes focus on things that are brighter. It’s not flattering. Otherwise, the fit on these would have been great. Lucky does have a Sweet’N’Low cut that doesn’t have whiskering. I’d love to try those, but I couldn’t find any.

The fourth pair was Calvin Klein, which I’ve been afraid to try on once I left size zero territory 10 years ago. These are ultimate bootcut.

Again, the shape is good, but the whiskering kind of ruins it.

Jeans became frustrating so I wandered over to pants. I love pants! I found these super cute, Madison wide leg trousers in a denim material. Is that cheating?

Do you see how the wide legs really help to minimize a larger bottom? It’s really great.

Then I went back to the Nine West because I really liked the feel of them. I found some classic rise jeans. I thought I should at least try them on.

Some tips and tricks for trying on jeans:

  • Go when your stomach isn’t full or empty. I’d say about an hour or two after you’ve eaten. That way you can get a better feel and fit. Also, I’m cranky when I’m hungry and that leads to rushed decisions.
  • Make sure you’re not in a hurry. If you have time you won’t get as flustered.
  • Really move around in the jeans. Walk around, crouch down to the floor, bend over. Do everything in the jeans that you will be doing in them after you buy them.

Bend and move around a lot when trying on jeans!

I ended up buying the Madison Trouser Jeans and the Nine West mid-rise boot cut jeans.

The leg and the comfort are what sold me on them. My thing is, I don’t have brand or label hang-ups. All I want is a pair of jeans that fit and flatter. I don’t care if they’re Ralph Lauren, DKNY or Levi’s. How they make you feel about the way you look is what is important. What bothers me is when women that don’t know how to dress themselves put on juicy couture track pants that hang around their hips just because they’re expensive. It’s not the price tag that makes you look good.

The next time I try on jeans I want to try these and these.

Happy jeans hunting! If you have any questions let me know!

For An Hourglass Friend: Comfortable Style in Earthy Tones

Standard

I have a friend that has a gorgeous, voluptuous hourglass shape. She is having a bit of trouble figuring out what her personal style is and how to better reflect on the outside the kind of person she is on the inside. (Don’t we all have that issue from time to time?)

This friend is drawn to Earthy tones, but lately she’s been liking deep purples and hot pinks. Which is fabulous, because purples and pinks can be really complimentary to earth tones… if you do it right.

I have put together a bunch of different styles for different occasions, hoping to inspire and/or help out my friend.

Here is my take on Hourglass evening wear in earth tones with pops of color. You’ll notice that all of the looks are balanced.

Hourglass Glam

 

 

These are some casual looks with Jeans…
If you’ve read the Jeans post or have bought the Body Type eBook for Hourglass you’ll note that I say the best jeans for that shape are going to be high-waist, wide leg jeans. But that doesn’t mean those are the only jeans.
Also, this friend has a huge problem tucking in her shirts. She doesn’t like it. It’s uncomfortable. I get it. I don’t like it either. So I tried to create looks that are still balanced without tucking in your tops. (And I added sweaters, because Fall is coming.)

Casual Hourglass

 

 

And here’s sort of a mishmash of other kinds of everyday work wear…
Notice the balance of shape is kept with wide-set straps, bold prints and colors.

Hourglass Work Wear

 

I hope you found this helpful! I tried not to be too stuffy, but at the same time I didn’t want to take any limitations too seriously. I didn’t want to push her too far out of her comfort zone, but I still want her to embrace her shape and mix it up a little.

Modcloth Fall Denim

Standard

modclothfalldenim

I am seriously in love with Modcloth’s Fall denim! They have at least one flattering pair of jeans for every body type. A lot of their denim is in plus sizes, too. (Images link to product page.)

Look:

These Skate Night Jeans would be great for a pear, an hourglass or an apple.

I would “pear” them with a boat neck top or a frilly blouse if you are trying to balance out wider hips.

What I love about these jeans for an apple shape is that the wide legs not only make your legs appear longer, but they also help to minimize your problem area by streamlining your entire look. Especially if you were to wear them with and empire waist cut top that was not tucked in.

And for an hourglass I would say be sure to keep it balanced with a fitted – but not too tight – top. Maybe a scoop neck tee!

_

I would recommend these Weekend Folk Festival Jeans to a boy shape or a column shape.

The pockets add depth and dimension to your hips. That will help to balance out a larger bust for column women. It will also give you something to balance out if you’re a boy shape.

For a column I would suggest a simple crew neck tee. For boy shapes, go with something that will enhance your bust like a sweetheart neckline.

Another thing about these high-waist jeans: if you have a long torso these will help to break it up and elongate your legs.

Personally, I want the Gotta Jet Set Jeans and the Dittos Flare Play Jeans.

These Gotta Jet Set Jeans will do absolutely nothing for my shape, but they’re so freakin’ cute! And they do have a high-waist. That will go a long way to breaking up my abnormally long torso. So, that’s reason enough to buy them.

These Flare Play Jeans by Ditto will actually break-up my torso, balance out my hips and elongate my legs! All great things. Plus they are fabulous! They would probably be my go-to jeans when I’m slumped in front of my closet complaining that I have absolutely nothing to wear

I am not affiliated with ModCloth in any way, I swear. I just got an email from them about Fall layering and fell in love. Go check out all of their new denim for fall.

Boys with Shoulders

Standard

I had someone comment on the troubles of finding jean looks for boy shapes with broad shoulders.

As a boy shape it is already hard to create a perfectly balanced hourglass shape. If you wear something that flares at the hips you could end up looking like a pair, but if you wear something that brings too much attention to wider shoulders you’ll look like you can’t carry your own weight.

I put some cute jeans looks together just for this specific problem.

I do not recommend boyfriend jeans for boy shapes, because they tend to create a boxy look on their own. Boyfriend jeans will not do you any favors.

Bootcut jeans are great for every body type. Bootcut jeans are great for boys specifically because they elongate the legs like elephant leg pants(also known as wide leg), but they aren’t as outdated. (But I put an outfit together with elephant leg pants, too.)

If you do have wider shoulders and no hips I would recommend a button up that is cut to flatter curves. You can tell if it’s cut right by laying it down flat. If it’s flat and it’s shaped like a box it is no good. But if you lay it flat and it has its own hourglass shape then it will be very flattering on a boy shape. (This also works for all body types) Of course, I’m always tempted to put ruched sleeves on a boy shape, but that won’t work if you have wider shoulders. A sleeveless button-up might sound like a good alternative, but it will pull more attention to your wide shoulders because of the straight shoulder lines that are typically on a button-up shirt.

I paired the elephant pants with a very simple shirt, because the wide leg jeans do most of the work for you. All you have to do is make sure you’re not pulling unneeded attention to your shoulders.

If you’re going to wear skinny jeans at all I’d recommend a mid-rise cigarette pant, because they aren’t as tight as skinny jeans. They’ll still give you a proper balance.

I paired these cigarette pants with a deep, wide, v-neck. Normally, if you’re trying to balance out wide shoulders you wouldn’t want that neckline. However, this shirt has its own waist and balances out the wide neck with a slightly a-line flare from the waist.

Bell bottoms can make your legs look shorter, but they make your hips look wider. So if you can pair them with pointed toe shoes and a shirt that still pulls in at the waist then those two things will balance out wider shoulders.

I paired the bell bottoms with a cardigan that has contrast piping around the neck and down the front. This will do two things: it will create an hourglass shape against the bell-bottom jeans; and it will pull the attention from the neckline down to your hips – and away from your shoulders.

For the fifth look I paired high-waisted skinny jeans with a nice blouse to show you how a high-waist can break up your torso to create shape.

APPLES

Standard

photo (21)If I have previously written about a staple it will be linked to that post.

T-shirts:

T-shirts must always be fitted. Otherwise, follow the rules for casual shirts.

Casual Shirts:

You need to find a casual top that emphasizes your bust and brings as little attention as possible to your belly. (However, baggy shirts with embellishments around the bust are a no-no, because they make your bust disappear into your stomach.) You need attention to be drawn to the smallest part of your torso.

Blouses:

I recommend a very structured blouse for you. Go with something that, when laid flat, is cut like an hourglass. You can also look for blouses that are cut under the bust to bring attention up. Ruffled sleeves are also good. So is ruffling along the bust. Tunics are great for your body type, because they can easily camouflage a tummy if you follow the other rules for blouses.

Sweaters:

Cowl neck sweaters distract from your belly. If they’re big enough they can also minimize the appearance of your belly. Tunic sweaters are good as long as they are pulling in at the smallest part of your torso – right under the bust.

Blazers:

Blazers that are going to de-emphasize your belly are going to have a wide-open lapel and neck line. They need to be very structure – like your blouses.

 

Skirts and Mini Skirts:

Look for skirts with very defined waists and a flared, or ruffled, skirt. You’ll need a slightly stiff fabric that will hold the shape well. (Stiff does not mean uncomfortable.) High-waisted skirts are an option as well. They will minimize a larger tummy and lengthen the look of your legs. Be wary of pencil skirts or any skirts that are cut close to the leg. They can actually put more attention on your stomach.

Skinny Jeans:

I DON’T RECOMMEND SKINNY JEANS FOR ANY BODY TYPE.

That being said… mid-rise, flat front skinny jeans are going to be best. One great thing about skinny jeans is that they look great under tunics.

Jeans:

Apples look best in wide leg jeans. Bell bottoms make your tummy look bigger. You will also look best in a mid-rise or higher waist. To avoid the “mom jeans” look, find jeans with a flat front panel. No pleats, please!

Pants:

Wide leg, flat front, mid-rise trousers are going to work best. Anything less than something that falls straight down from your hips is going to create an ice cream cone shape.

 

Little Black Dress:

The best dress for an apple is going to be an empire waist dress, because an empire waist dress is going to pull in at the smallest part of your torso. Even better would be an empire waist dress with ruching, lace or embellishments at the bust to bring the eye up. Even better than that would be an empire waist dress that draws your eye up to the bust and pulls your eye straight down from the belly with a straight skirt – minimizing the appearance of a larger stomach.

Rompers:

Look for a color-blocked romper that has darker bottom and a brighter top. Also look for rompers with a high waist and wide legs. If you can’t find one that is color-blocked like that, it’s okay. Just stick with a high waist and wide legs. It would also help if the romper had a wide neck or ruffles over the bust to bring attention to your bust.

apple shapeSwimwear:

Finding a swimsuit for women with an apple shape is harder than it is for any other body type. BUT it’s not hopeless. There are actually a lot of swimsuits that are made especially for minimizing a bigger belly. If you’re looking for a two-piece – you can wear a two-piece – you want to find a bottom that has a built-in waist minimizer or one that minimizes the appearance of the waist with darker colors or solid colors at the waist. If you’re looking for a one-piece it’s as easy as finding a suit that gives the optical illusion of an hourglass shape with a pattern or decoration in that shape. 

BOY

Standard

T-shirts:

T-shirts must always be fitted. Otherwise, follow the rules for casual shirts.

Casual Shirts:

You either want to wear a shirt that breaks up your torso and gives you shape or wear a plain shirt and let the rest of the outfit do the work.

Blouses:

You can go with something structured, a blouse that is gathered at the waist, or even a men’s button up with a belt at the waist. Any of these things will work for you. However, if there is no waist on your blouse you’ll need to add a belt or wear something that your blouse can be tucked into. Puff sleeves and ruffles on the bust are a good idea, too.

Sweaters:

Wrap sweaters are great for boy shapes if they have a tie at the waist. Also, any plain sweater that you can add a belt to is great. I really like the mushroom type of sweater that is tight on the waist, but bellows out above the waist. Those are really cute for a boy shape.

Blazers:

You can wear a slouchy blazer if you add a skinny belt to it. There are some really cute blazers with elastic in the waist. Skinnier or shorter lapels on blazers with pockets on the hips will also do the trick. (A thicker or longer lapel will be overwhelming on your straight frame.)

 

Skirts and Mini Skirts:

I think it’s a good idea to break up your torso with a high-waisted skirt. High-waist skirts creat the look of longer legs, too. Skirts with wide waistbands are good for your shape. If you want to bring more attention to your hips, and create the illusion of curves, you can wear a low-rise skirt with a wide waistband – as long as it doesn’t give you a muffin top. Flared, bubble or cargo skirts will give you a little extra shape as well.

Skinny Jeans:

I DON’T RECOMMEND SKINNY JEANS FOR ANY BODY TYPE.

That being said… Low-rise skinny jeans are going to make your torso look twice as long and your legs look half as long. Avoid them.  If you can find high-rise skinny jeans, those would be best. If you can only find mid-rise then make sure that you are breaking up your torso and cinching in your waist.

Jeans:

High-rise jeans will break up your torso, which can help to give more curves. Bell bottom jeans create the illusion of wider hips, but be careful because they can also shorten your legs. Your best bet is going to be a mid to high-rise bootcut jean.

Pants:

I love a high-waist, darted trouser for boy shapes. An open dart on a high waist trouser will give you some shape. Make sure that whatever pants you wear are fitted to your rear. Fitted clothing can go a long way to defining curves that you don’t think you have.  You can also wear low-rise trousers(be wary of muffin top) with a skinny belt. That will help to bring attention to your hips. Just be sure to balance that out on top. Width of the leg can vary depending on rise and the top you pair it with.

 

Little Black Dress:

The best little black dress for you will be one that pulls in at the waist. If it’s cut in a way that creates some curves – whether it be a flowy skirt, a low neck line, etc. – that’s even better.

Rompers:

Look for a romper with a tie waist or an elastic waist. Your body type would look best in a 40’s style pleated romper with short sleeves and wide shorts.

boy shapeSwimwear:

If you are a boy shape (or rectangle or banana) then you have a very straight shape. Other than padding your bathing suits there are a few things you can do to give yourself some va-va-voom. My favorite two-piece for a boy shape would have a bandeua top with ruching in the center and a simple side-tie bikini bottom. You can add convertible straps to your top if you feel like you need them, but the shape of the bandeau top is going to break up your torso and draw attention to your bust – even if you don’t have much of one. Another way to add some shape is to look for a bikini with ruffles on the bust and booty. Looking for a one-piece? I got you covered, almost. Go for a one piece with cut-outs at the sides or lines that create an hourglass shape. Either one gives the illusion of a more shapely torso.

T-shirts:

T-shirts must always be fitted. Otherwise, follow the rules for casual shirts.

Casual Shirts:

You can actually wear shirts that are cut to end at your hips. However, make sure that you have a very clear waist line. Don’t wear anything with a lot of embellishment or ruffles around the bust.

Blouses:

You want something very structured without puffy sleeves or ruffles. You can wear a blouse that is long enough to sit on your hips. Make sure to emphasize your tiny waist with a belt if you’re not going to tuck it in.

Sweaters:

Any plain sweater I like for Columns. Cable knit sweaters are good as long as the knit is vertical. Belts, when they can be used, are great for showing the world that you have a small waist.

Blazers:

Find some blazers with lapels that don’t draw a lot of attention to them. Jackets with a pulled in waist and big pockets are great. No pockets is fine, too, just make sure the waist is pulled in and the jacket either flares out from the waist or sits nicely on the hips.

 

Skirts and Mini Skirts:

Pencil skirts are great for your shape. They will put some much needed attention on your derriere. Tiered skirts, ruffled skirts, bubble skirts, cargo skirts or flared skirts are all great for adding a little shape to your booty.

Skinny Jeans:

I DON’T RECOMMEND SKINNY JEANS FOR ANY BODY TYPE.

That being said… skinny jeans do actually make your booty look bigger. However, they can also make your stomach look bigger, too. So, whatever you wear with your skinny jeans, make sure that you are cinching in your waist.

Jeans:

If you don’t have hips at all then you don’t necessarily need to worry about muffin top and can wear low-rise, mid-rise or high-rise jeans. Whiskering can make your hips to look wider, which is good for your body type. Bell bottoms can actually make your hips look wider, too. But be careful, because they can also make your legs look shorter. Straight leg jeans and bootcut jeans are great, too.

Pants:

Wear straight leg pants to draw the eye up to your booty. Mid-rise would be best, but if you want to go with high-rise it would bring some much-needed definition to your waist.

Little Black Dress:

You need a little black dress that goes over the bust without bringing much attention to it. It should pull in at the waist and go out from there. Another great LBD would be one that is fitted completely and brings some attention to your lower half with a belt around the hips or a stripe of color across the bottom of the skirt.

Rompers:

Look for rompers with wide leg shorts, ruffled shorts, or cuffed shorts to balance out your bust. You can also find a romper that has a pattern on the bottom, but a solid color on top.

ColumnSwimwear:

Whether looking for a one-piece or two-piece, wear brighter colors on the bottom. You need to draw attention to your bottom to balance out your top. What I love about picking swimwear for column shaped ladies is that you can find any sort of swimwear and add to it. Add a fun belt around the hips (or a sarong or a scarf). That tip goes a long way to balance out a bigger bust. 

HOURGLASS

Standard

photo (23)If I have previously written about a staple it will be linked to that post.

T-shirts:

T-shirts must always be fitted. Otherwise, follow the rules for casual shirts.

Casual Shirts:

If you’re going to wear a shirt with any kind of embellishment or ruffles or anything then you need to make sure that you’re balancing that out somehow on the bottom.

Blouses:

You already have an hourglass shape, so you don’t need to worry about structure or anything else. You do need to make sure your waist is in. So wear a belt or tuck in your blouse. Also, if you don’t tuck in your blouse, make sure that it’s not landing on your hips and making them appear wider.

Sweaters:

Any fitted sweater is going to look great. Be wary of where they fall on your hips to make sure that they aren’t making your hips look wider than the rest of you.

Blazers:

If you go with a wider lapel make sure your jacket sits out from the hips. If you go with a skinnier lapel make sure the blazer sits flat against your hip.

 

Skirts and Mini Skirts:

Skirts with a higher waist are great for your shape. You can go for any fit of skirt. If you wear a pencil skirt that is cut close to your legs make sure that your top is just as fitted. If you go with a flared skirt then make sure that there is slight flare to your shirt in order to keep your shape balanced.

Skinny Jeans:

I DON’T RECOMMEND SKINNY JEANS FOR ANY BODY TYPE.

That being said… mid to high-rise is going to work best. If you’re not going to tuck in your top you need to make sure that your waist is pulled in somehow, whether it be the cut of the shirt or an added belt.

Jeans:

Mid to high-rise jeans are going to be best for your curves to minimize muffin top. Straight leg, wide leg, or bootcut are all good. Just be careful with your tops and balancing your shape. If you wear straight leg pants with a really baggy or ruffly top you will end up looking top-heavy. If you wear wide legs and a tight top you’ll look pear shaped.

Pants:

I love an hourglass in slouchy, but fitted, pants. Of course, if that’s not your style I would recommend a mid-to-high rise wide or straight leg pant. If you go with a wide leg pant be sure to wear a fitted top and vice versa. You don’t want to look vamp-ish, but you don’t want to look like a potato sack either.

  

Little Black Dress:

If you want to show off your curves I would pick a LBD that resembles a 50’s wiggle dress – like a sheath dress. If you would like to tame your curves then find a dress that sits on your curves without pulling in at the waist.

Rompers:

You need a romper that is going to keep your shape balanced. If you wear a romper with wide legs, make sure that is also has wide-set straps or a wide neckline to balance out the legs. If you wear a romper with a spaghetti strapped top you can go a little lighter on the shorts, too. If you don’t want to accentuate your curves go without a cinched waist. If you really want to accentuate your curves you can add a belt.

hourglass shapeSwimwear:

The only thing that you need to worry about if you’re an hourglass shape is keeping your balance. If you’re going for a two-piece be sure to cover as much, or as little, on top as you do on the bottom. If you wear a pattern on top balance that out with a pattern on the bottom. When looking for a one-piece try to find something that pulls in at your waist and, again, covers as much on top as it does on the bottom. If you cover more on top and less on bottom you’ll end up looking like a pear and vice versa if you cover more on the bottom and less on top. 

PEAR

Standard

If I have previously written a post about a staple then it will be linked to that post.

T-shirts:

T-shirts must always be fitted. Otherwise, follow the rules for casual shirts.

Casual Shirts:

You need to find shirts that have a boat neck, flowing sleeves or anything that is going to pull attention up to your bust. Make sure that it can be tucked in or that it is cropped to your waist. Anything longer than that is going to put attention on your hips.

Blouses:

Look for blouses with ruffles on the bust, cap sleeves, a wider neck opening or anything like that. Patterns and stripes are also good. Make sure you get a blouse that can be tucked in.

Sweaters:

Cowl neck sweaters, wide sleeve sweaters, boleros, and sweaters with ruffles on top are all good ideas. Try for lighter weight sweaters that can be tucked in to pants or jeans or sweaters that aren’t going to rest too low on your hips.

Blazers:

A great thing for a pear would be a blazer that has a contrasting lapel to really bring the attention up to your bust. You can also go with a jacket that has puffy or squared shoulders. Cropped blazers are perfect for your body type as well.

Skirts and Mini Skirts:

Any skirts that hug your legs are bad. It will make your butt look bigger.  You want a skirt that falls straight from your hips or has a slight flare to it. I suggest a skirt that has a waist that hits at your natural waist to prevent muffin top.

Skinny Jeans:

I DON’T RECOMMEND SKINNY JEANS FOR ANY BODY TYPE.

That being said… If you must wear skinny jeans do not wear low-rise skinny jeans. Do not let your shirts fall to your hips. You want at least a mid-rise. I recommend high-rise, but that’s even harder to find. Tuck in your shirts or wear cropped shirts. If you’re wearing skinny jeans and the bottom of your skirt is sitting across your hips that will make your hips look extra wide.

Jeans:

Mid-rise, wide leg or bootcut jeans look best when trying to minimize a bigger booty. Dark wash is best. Whiskering is a big NO-NO. Bell-bottom jeans can make your butt look extra wide.

Pants:

Wide leg pants not only minimize your hips, but also elongate your legs. They are going to be your best bet. As with jeans go with a mid to high-rise pant. Watch the size of the waistband. Some wider waistbands can make the hips appear larger.


Little Black Dress:

The greatest LBDs for pear shapes are going to be dresses that have wide-set straps, a boatneck, flowy sleeves, or a wide, low scoopneck. Make sure the skirt is straight down from the hips or has a slight flow away from your body.

Rompers:

Wear a romper that puts very little emphasis on your bottom half. You can go with a romper that has a wide neckline, a ruched bust or sleeves, or ruffles on the bust. Another thing you can do is find a romper that is a little baggy on top so that it hangs over the waist – as long as the waist is cinched in.

pear shapeSwimwear:

If you’re a pear shape then your biggest problems are your butt, hips and thighs. Whether you’re looking for a one-piece or a two-piece you want to accentuate your bust and minimize your bottom half. There are more than a few easy ways to do this. You can wear a suit that has brighter colors on top and darker colors on bottom. You can find swimwear with patterns on the top and a solid color bottom. You can also slip into a swimsuit that has a few ruffles on top and a very plain bottom. Any mixture of the three will work well, too.
