Flaunt Your Curves
Clothes are more than just pieces of fabric. They are a way of expressing our personality and our feelings. Don't fall prey to dressing for an unflattering trend - dress for your shape...

If you are a pear shape, it basically means you carry your weight on the bottom part of your body, like your bum and thighs. This means you tend to have a smaller chest. You also have curvaceous hips. Your best parts are your tiny waist and slim arms. Because you're slimmer on top, you probably want to keep the attention focused on your upper body.
Pear shaped people look good in A-line skirts, because they skim over hips. Another tip is to wear heels -- they lengthen and slim legs.
Wedge heels also balance out thicker calves. Invest in waisted belts, because they draw attention to your already slim waist, and create more of an hourglass shape.
Wear eye-catching earrings and necklaces, to draw the attention up.
Pear-shaped girls should avoid wide-leg jeans, because these make your legs appear wider than they are. Your perfect jeans are boot-cut jeans, which you can wear with boots underneath, making your legs appear longer and slimmer.
Pear-shaped girls should not overload on short skirts, especially if you have chunkier calves. High-waisted pencil skirts are more flattering. They show off your slim waist.
Finally, avoid smock dresses. They completely hide your top half, and usually show off your legs, which may not be your most flattering. If you want to wear a floaty smock dress, wear with black leggings to make your legs appear a little slimmer.
