"Pear" figures are defined by a small upper torso and the majority of weight swelling around the hips.
Ruffles, cowl necks, and boat necks are bold cuts that balance out a tiny shoulder frame.
Full skirts, A-lines, and wide leg pants in darker colors minimize the hips. Save the color for accentuating that tiny upper torso.
Jackets that fall short just above the waistline are also slimming.
