Q: I’m a mum of 2 in my late 30’s. For Mother’s Day myself and the family are going out to a lovely restaurant. I’ve always struggled with dressing for my shape, I’m a pear. I want to look good and be more in touch with ‘fashion’. Can you help?
A: It can be hard to part with cash for yourself when you have 2 children, most mums end up buying something for their kids. This is a great excuse to dress up and show that you are a very chic mum.
Being a pear means you have a smaller top than bottom half. There are a few tricks you can try to balance out your figure. A printed shirt is a great way to draw attention away from your lower half and make a real a statement. This printed shirt is perfect for this, the busy pattern creates curves in places you may be lacking.
To balance out your shapely bottom half, you could opt for a pair of wide leg trousers. The 70s trend is really big right now, so it’s time to ditch those skinny jeans. This would be music to all the pair shaped ladies out there.
To finish off your look, you should add a pair of heels. Don’t worry you don’t have to get huge heels, a small heel is just enough. Wearing them elongates your legs too. There you have a it, a smart but stylish look for your perfect Mother’s Day. Enjoy the restaurant!
