About the Expert
Hi I'm Rose Tran and I'm a fashion stylist. You can be tall, short, heavy, and skinny and still be pear-shaped. What this means is that the widest part of your body starts at your waist and continues downward. The key to dressing for this body type is to accentuate your shoulders for a proportionate look. When choosing the right skirt to wear keep in mind you don't want to wear anything poofy or flowy. That will only make your hips appear larger. I've dressed Kathleen in a form fitting skirt along with a print blouse with details on the neck and arms. This brings the attention to her top half which is exactly what we need. The purpose of this is to draw attention away from the hip area to create a proportionate upper half. The form fit and length of the skirt is perfect to keep her hips and legs looking lean rather then large. You can tie your hair up to show off the blouse and grab your favorite purse to finish off this outfit.
