The key to styling any body shape is to accentuate the assets.  For the pear,  her assets are her slim upper body and toned arms.  We need to draw the eye up in styling a pear to distract the attention away from the bulkier lower body.   

To emphasize the toned arms of a pear, it is ideal to use spaghetti straps to show off skin on a pear’s arms.  To draw the attention away from the lower body,  color must be used when picking tops for the pear.  Other ways of emphasizing the torso are use of ruching, ruffles, shine , print and other interesting details when choosing a suitable top.  Cinching the waist also puts emphasis on another asset of the pear which is her slim waist.  A pear body type is characterized by narrow shoulders, which also needs to be addressed in styling.  Useful tricks to give the illusion of broad shoulders for this body type are the use of a shrug and collar details such as a boat neck or a shallow v shaped neckline.

The wider lower body needs to be “concealed”  when styling a pear.  To achieve this, darker colors must be used in picking a suitable pair of pants or skirt for the pear.  Pants must be flat fronted and If possible have vertical lines to elongate a pear’s legs. Pants should also have a stretch to them to skim over the wide hips and thighs.  Skirts must be simple and A-line also to skim over the wide hips and thighs of the person.
