A Crop Top and High Rise Jeans

I’ve styled this crop top with a high-waisted skirt, but never was daring enough to do it with jeans. There is something about your stomach being out in the open, with no covering over the jeans and that freaks me out. But, I received a request to show how I would style a crop top with jeans, so I thought I would share my way of making the trend comfortable for a pearshape.

What made this outfit particularly comfortable for me was the jean choice. These high-rise BDG jeans are bar-none my favorite jeans in my closet. They have the perfect rise, stretch and make me feel thin and amazing every time I put them on. I opted for my Forever 21 crop top as it has a button down (more flattering on the neckline) and ties that hang down in front.

At the last second, I tied this striped pull-over sweater around my waist for extra coverage. You could totally omit this item if you are more bold, but I found it to give a cool, hipster vibe to the outfit as well.

Opinion: To Cut A Dress, or Not To Cut A Dress?

I need you’re opinion. I’ve had this dress since I was 16 (not joking). I bought it for my little brother’s middle school graduation and have worn it so many times I can’t even tell you. But upon putting it on yesterday the length sort of started to bother me. The flattering wrap shape and the v-neck line are still absolute favorites, but the awkward 2-inches-below-the-knee length bugged me. So, I ask you dear readers, do I get it tailored to 2 inches above the knee, or not?

Reader Styling: Tropical Vacation

One of my favorite things about writing this blog is hearing from my readers. Be it through comments, tweets or emails, I really feel like ThePearShape has created a little community and I love it more than anything. But perhaps my favorite thing to do with readers is give something back, personally. Every so often a gorgeous gal will email me asking for styling tips, ways to rework her wardrobe to make it more flattering, key pieces to invest in for one event or another that are tailored to her size, and shape. Putting together these outfits and really thinking about the key pieces that will make that girl look amazing on her day brings me such joy.

With that said, every once in a while I will be featuring an outfit I have put together for a dear reader. For this first time, it is a variation of the outfit above for my sweet reader, Hayley, who asked for some basics for her upcoming Mexican vacation with her boyfriend. I focused on pattern mixing, well fitting dresses, and classic wear-with-everything wedges to give her an outfit that would serve her well not only in Mexico, but beyond.

If you ever need help with a particular garment, outfit ideas, or questions on fit, please do not hesitate to reach out. I absolutely love to do it. I promise, I will try to get to as many as possible.

As always, thank you for reading.
