luxorandfinchCheck out the latest blog post on pear shaped ladies!! Link in bio! Some tips to shop your shape are: 1. EMBRACE YOUR HIPS AND ALWAYS PLAY UP THE DIFFERENCE RATIO IN HIP TO WAIST. THIS WILL ALWAYS GIVE YOU A FEMININE LOOK. BUT AVOID ADDING EXTRA WEIGHT TO THE HIPS AND LEGS, BE WEARY OF HORIZONTAL STRIPS AND OVERSIZED PATTERNS ON THE BOTTOM HALF.
2. TO ADD BALANCE , YOU CAN ADD WEIGHT TO YOUR TOP HALF BY WEARING STRUCTURED TOPS, BLAZERS AND HEAVIER FABRICS.
3.ALWAYS ACCENTUATE THE WAIST, THIS SHAPE CAN BE LOST IN PIECES THAT AREN’T WAIST FRIENDLY, THEN YOU RUN THE RISK OF LOOKING HEAVIER THAN YOU ARE.

luxorandfinchWhy it works: This body type needs some balance, so we are using layers to create shape . The two tier dress is perfect for the broad shoulders and the double layers create weight at the hips. The leather pants underneath add texture and balance to your bottom half. Lastly the Oasis Leather with the wide draped lapel helps to narrow the shoulders and is just a great jacket. My favorite pop of color is the high lighter colored "Sac de Jour Bag", add a david yurman bracelet and this look is simple and chic. 1. David Yurman Bracelet

luxorandfinchThe ice cream cone shape (also known as the inverted triangle) is defined by having broader shoulders than hips. This is due to the bone structure of the individual possessing this body type, as a result weight gain in this body type begins in the upper body and then is distributed throughout the rest of the body. The key to this shape ( and any shape when styling) is balance. The broad shoulders in comparison to the waist give the look of a smaller waistline. To balance this shape it is best to create or add weight at the hips and bottom of body. Heavier fabrics and structure designs help to create shape and balance for this look. #invertedtriangle#bodyshape#bodytype#icecreamcone#triangle#swimmersshoulder#luxorandfinch#shopbyshape3w

lynnd86 What's it called when all your weight goes to your behind and thighs?!?!
luxorandfinchThe Issue: Large Chest
The Solution: V-Neck, Scoop Necks. Large chest can be problematic for oversized sweaters. Having a large chest can distort the shape of an oversized sweater. To avoid the distortion choose oversized sweater that have V-Neck or scoop necks to help balance your frame. Or choose a top that takes away the heaviness up top by revealing some skin.

luxorandfinchThe Issue: Broad Hips
The Solution: No waistband around the hips (unless you want to showcase the bubble butt). The slouchy sweater that does not have a waist band is best for round hips because it does not cling to the hip. Sweaters that cling the hips can lose shape in the waist and add extra weight around the hips. Avoid banded sweaters.
