how to dress a pear shaped body {the skinny jean}

top: tjmaxx (option, option, option), skinnies: nordstrom (simple gray jean), earrings: elisabethspace, flats: tjmaxx c/o jack rogers (similar color), watch: no longer being sold (similar, similar--mens version)
When dressing a pear shaped body it's not ideal to wear skinny jeans.  Why? Because they hug your curves and make everything more noticeable.  If you can't get away from skinny jeans, and there is nothing wrong with that, make them work for you.  Customize your outfit so everyone looks everywhere BUT at the bottom! 

For my pear shaped body my hips are really what stick out the most.  Once I turned 21 they just popped right out, I have no idea where they came from!  Kinda weird, but I'm trying my best to make it work for me. So when trying to disguise my hips I like to wear patterned tunics where the bottom touchs right where my hips are.  With lots of pattern on the top the eye tends to focus there instead at my hips. 

When pairing jewelry with a patterned top it's important to not go too far overboard.  You have a patterned top so subtle jewelry is the better option.  You'll notice I didn't wear a necklace and my earrings are a bit smaller then last week's earrings.
