Are you looking for ways to flatter your pear-shaped body type? Start with these fancy tops that will enhance your proportion.
Although technically winter has just started, this pandemic and on-and-off lockdown just makes me want to fast-forward the days and have spring season already. But alas! We can´s skip a season, can we?
So to combat this very lonely winter in my side of the world, I decided to focus on looking forward to the brighter seasons. Why not feature the best spring pieces for each body type?
Yesterday I took action and wrote the Best Dresses for a Muscular Build Woman. Today, this is about the fanciest tops that will flatter a pear-shaped woman.
This is going to be a series, and I`m going to really do my best to stick to it so I can take my thoughts off the current lockdown. I`m going to have fun searching for these „best pieces“ for each body type, I`m sure of that.
Now let´s get started.
If you have a pear-shaped body type, your goal is to make your shoulders appear wider to balance the width of your hips, or to make your breasts appear bigger to balance the fullness of your derrière and legs.
You`ll easily achieve that by wearing tops that are brighter in color than your skirt or trousers, or to wear tops with puff sleeves or padded shoulders.
Below are fancy tops that will help you enhance your proportion and look great in spring, even summer.
1. A Puff Sleeves Organza Top.
This knit top with sheer organza puff sleeves is very sophisticated. The sheer sleeves add width to your shoulders and arms but in a very subtle way. However, since the top is black, you can only waer it with dark colored bottom such as a pair of black jeans or dark gray skirt because as you may already know, pairing a dark top with a bright bottom will only emphasize your pear shape.
2. A V-wire Neckline Bodysuit
This ponte knit bodysuit has long puff shoulder sleeves and V-wire neckline that will surely widen up your shoulders and make your chest area appear bigger and wider. Comes with a thong back, this body suit will look so elegant with anything you´ll wear it with, except a light colored bottom – skirt, shorts or trousers – which will defeat the purpose.
3. A Dramatic Warp Top with Puff Sleeves.
Another super glamorous top, this black wrap top comes with additional drama. Also with puff sleeves, it has a plunging V-neckline and ring belted waist detail that makes things sophisticated. But then again, it´s black. So for this fancy top to flatter a pear-shaped body type, partner it with something dark.
4. A Red Puff Sleeve Sweater.
Embrace the power of red by wearing a glorious red fitted sweater with puff sleeves. This one can be worn tucked in with anything, and it also looks great with most dark colors.
5. A knit Balloon Sleeve Sweater.
Do you have that special pair of fitted blue denim jeans? Create and effortless look with this knit balloon sleeve sweater. It´s soft, drapey and skims your body so it´s unlikely to add you weight. If rust orange isn´t your color, this sweater is also available in black and beige.
6. A Puff Sleeve Ameral Green Top with Cutout.
On a warm spring day, you can opt for an emeral green top with short puff sleeves. It has a cut-out style on the back, which is really sexy, and it looks perfect whether worn tuck in or untucked. Thankfully it also looks great with black, such as a black midi skirt.
7. Puff Sleeve Bodysuit.
This white bodysuit has a pair of really dramatic puffed sleeves which is perfect for a pear shape with obvious narrow shoulders. Not all pear-shaped has narrow shoulders. But if yours are quite narrow, then you should really love this top. And because it´s white, it looks great with just about any color. Although it looks fabouls with some gray jeans.
8. A Balloon Sleeves Sweater.
Balloon sleeves are great. But if a sweater with balloon sleeves has dropped shoulders, then it can be tricky for a pear-shaped like you. However, since this baloon sleeve sweater is light in color, I gave it a „yes“. Remember though to wear it with something darker in color instead of something than matches. Of course, this advice is only for pear-shaped women!
9. A Puff Sleeves Button-Up.
Super sexy, fancy and comfy, this button-up top with puff sleeves can be worn as a transitional piece for any pear-shaped body type. You can wear it with jeans in spring or with a mini skirt in summer.
10. A Puff Sleeve Cropped Top.
This crop top with puff sleeves is surely cute for later spring to summer. But because it´s a dark animal print, don´t make the mistake of teaming it with a light washed cropped pant as seen on the model. If you take this outfit as is, the light washed jeans are going to emphasize your wide bottom half. Yo make sure to opt for a dark washed pair of jeans.
11. Knit Ruffled Sweater.
There´s nothing ruffles can do when it comes to hiding or creating a gorgeous illusion of something. Narrow shoulders? No problem. Just wear this ivory sweater with two ruffle panels that will accent your shoulders with enough feminine drama.
12. A Padded Shoulder Cropped top.
Padding on the shoulders? Check. Three quarter sleeves? Check. A square neckline? Check.
Wear it with your sexiest pair of skinny jeans for a night out. Just make sure those are dark colored jeans. you´ll look younger and leaner.
13. A Balloon Sleeve Sweater.
This balloon sleeve sweater is super fabulous. I say that with all honesty, I really love this style of sweater. However, if you´re having second thoughts on the color – Burgundy, which can potentially make your upper half thinner, there is good news! This sweater is also available in cream.
So these are the fancy tops that I believe will truly flatter a pear-shaped body type this coming spring and summer. Let me know which fancy top are you.
