    Red skirt

    You don't want a tight skirt that hugs your hips and thighs, so shop for an A-line skirt or a slightly flared pencil skirt in red -- one of the hottest colors of the season. These skirts are cute -- and they also hide figure flaws.

    Style tips

      To balance out a pear-shaped body, partner your skirts with blouses and sweaters that draw the eye upward and away from hips and thighs. Look for tops with unique necklines and interesting sleeves. Wearing large, dangling earrings is another way you can take the focus away from the bottom half of your body.
