Patterned Tunic top

Another style I’m fond of for disguising my pear shape is a tunic top paired with skinny jeans.  I got this one at Anthropologie and love the pattern and fabric.  There clothing is somewhat on the pricier side, but I try to find thing I truly love there and therefore can justify the price.  I once bought a pair of $80 lounge pants there which seems ridiculous, but they are my favorite pants in my closet.  I paired them with a simple white tee and a layered necklace for a summer concert.  I’m sure they’ll be one of my go-to items in hot weather.

The maxi dress

Now that summer has officially hit the Pacific Northwest, I decided to try out a style I had been seeing everywhere, the Maxi Dress.  This particular one is from Old Navy and I found it to be a great staple that I can easily dress up with different accessories.  On this particular day, I wore it to work with a cropped jean jacket from Old Navy, a wide brown belt from Anthropologie, and some bracelets I made myself.  (Which you can’t really see in the picture.)

I feel that this worked for my shape because I was able to balance my proportions with a cropped jacket on top, and accentuate my waist with the wide brown belt.  I was worried about the knit fabric hugging my hips so I ended up buying the dress a size larger than I could have and brought it in at the waist with the belt.  This way, it skims nicely off of my curvier parts and provides the shape I want.
