Pear-shaped princesses have curvy lower bodies, which typically include full and foxy hips. When it comes to dressing, it's all about balance. Focusing on this idea helps to make your upper and lower halves look better proportioned, which means you look even sexier. Instead of hiding in a bulky coat, accentuate your body by donning stylish coats that flatter your curves.
Besides being chic, military jackets also are flattering to a pear-shaped body. The strong and structured shoulders of a military coat balance out the width of your hips. As opposed to jackets that feature narrow shoulders, these stylish jackets won't accentuate your slender upper body, but make it look better proportioned with your fuller lower body.
You might think a trench coat doesn't offer much balance because it is the same shape throughout its length. However, trench coats typically come with belts that can help you show off your waist. Highlighting this narrower part of your body creates proportion between your shoulders and your hips, which makes them look less full. Plus you can rock a trench coat with just about any outfit and still look lovely, including slacks and skirts.
To play down your voluptuous lower half, your coat has to hit the right spot. Jackets that are too short will only accentuate your trouble spots and coats that are too long can overwhelm your frame. Instead, go with one that sits right under your hips or mid-thigh. These jackets will keep you warm and your body looking hot.
Colors and Design
Dark colors result in a sleeker silhouette. However, prints can also help you out. Sporting a coat that features a feminine floral print draws the eye to your face and creates balance with your lower half. Such embellishments as small front pockets and epaulets help your upper body look better proportioned with your lower body.
