What Women’s Clothing to Wear in 2010 If You’re an Apple Or Pear Body Shape

Although there are only four different body shapes – apple, banana, hourglass and pear – most women find it difficult to not just categorise themselves into one of the four groups, but to actually understand what clothes they should wear depending on their body shape.

Generally speaking, banana and hourglass shapes are the easiest to dress, as according to an article in the Independent newspaper (dated 21 November 2005), most designers create their clothes around a more sleek version of the traditional hourglass figure, making them somewhere between banana and glass.

Apple and pear, however, are the two body shapes that women’s clothing can be difficult to find if you don’t know what you are looking for. Essentially inversions of each other (apple being big on the top and small on the bottom and pear being small on top and big on the bottom), it is easy for women to become frustrated trying to find suitable clothes in general, never mind clothes that are at the height of fashion.

Fortunately, 2010 has a varied amount of women’s clothing styles that are particularly variable to suit all body shapes, meaning that with just a little bit of thought, you could be walking around feeling both stylish and comfortable.

A prime example of the varying women’s clothing styles that will suit both apple and pear body shapes is the blazer. Being a popular clothing item for several seasons now, blazers are still massively popular and can be worn with a range of different other items to suit either an apple or pear shape.

For a pear shape, naturally you are going to seem bottom heavy, usually having narrow shoulders, slim arms and small breasts, which can look even smaller by your often large thighs and legs in general. To even your body out, choose a blazer that has shoulder pads (both of which are fashion items in 2010) and match it with a voluptuous hair style, as mixed together they will make your upper body seem larger than it is. Remember, though, to roll up the blazer’s sleeves to show off those lovely slim arms that are a popular trait amongst pear shaped women.

If you have an apple body shape, it’s highly likely that you are going to have a fantastic set of legs. Slim, toned and long, there are several trends to take note of that will accentuate these perfectly

Should you be going to a formal evening event, for example, then choose a dress that has a high split along one leg. Displaying those legs beautifully, this type of dress will mix sophistication and sexiness perfectly.

If you’re an apple shape and you’re looking for something a little more casual, however, think about hot pants or boyfriend shorts. Both are particularly fashionable this spring and summer and are so versatile it’s highly unlikely that you won’t have anything to go with them in your wardrobe already.

Body shapes are something that can be difficult to define when you first look at your body. However, once you do understand your body shape, it will open your eyes to a whole new world when shopping and ensure you remain fashionable regardless of your shape.
