The majority of women are considered pear-shaped. Pear-shaped figures are heavier in the hips, rear end and thighs in comparison to their upper body. Check out these outerwear trends that are suited for pear-shaped women.
This fall, look for stylish coats and other pieces that will balance out your curvy bottom half.
Lucky for you, faux fur is hot for fall. Get into the fur trend with a coat with a fabulous faux-fur collar. This will draw the focus upward and away from your hips. Fur-trimmed vests are also a chic choice this season.
Another popular trend for fall is dolman sleeves. If you don’t need a heavy coat, look for a warm cardigan sweater with dolman sleeves instead. Voluminous sleeves will help balance out your body shape.
Styles to avoid
Wide lapels look better than slim ones (which make your top half look even narrower). Avoid funnel-neck coats and sweaters with slouchy shoulders. Don’t be afraid to experiment with capes and ponchos this season — they’re very trendy and can work well with your figure.
