Like I mentioned last week, blazers are everything at this time of year! It almost seemed to me as if I wrote those words and then fall magically made its way to New York City! There is an amazing chill in the air that has been making me want to channel nothing but pumpkins, apples, blazers, and boots–oh my!
So, if you have a pear body shape and are ready to do some blazer shopping to layer up this fall, read onward to make your experience way less of a hassle and more fun!
Shopping For Blazers For The Pear Body Shape
Avoid: Make sure to bypass anything that adds extra volume to the hip area–including pockets! If you can, find a blazer for your pear body shape that passes on the pockets and offers more sleek lines, unless of course the pockets are on an angle. And remember, traditional blazer cuts are too boxy for our pears!
Look for: Focus on finding a blazer that first starts with having more of a shape to it–beginning with the shoulders, as this will help balance your overall shape out. No, you don’t need to look for full on shoulder pads, but look for something that has a little bit going on in that general area. Secondly, shift eyes upwards by choosing blazers that have embellishment around the neckline and lapel area!
Silhouettes: Choose a silhouette that tapers in at the waist to show off/enhance this asset!
Fabrication: Overall, choose fabrics that aren’t bulky so as not to add to the volume of the blazer.
