I worked with a gorgeous pear-shaped client last week, who wears two to three sizes bigger on the bottom than on top. We put lots of fun outfits together, and the one I’m describing here was one of my favourites. Wearing a dress over pants was initially out of my client’s comfort zone, but she gave it a whirl and loved it. She can wear this combination on casual Fridays, when she’s out and about, hosting a get-together at home, or going to dinner at night. 

We combined KUT’s Kurvy Ankle Skinny Jeans with Zara’s Tulip Dress and Paul Green’s Margo Cross Strap Flat. We popped a black camisole under the dress because it’s a little low. I suggested a little lace peaking out from under the V-neck for an alluring and pretty effect. We finished off the outfit with a wrap that picks up the orange in the tulips of the dress to wear as a topper for when it’s cooler at night. A metallic clutch adds a pop of sparkle. 

The jeans are an excellent fit for curvy hips, bottom and thighs. The swingy silhouette of the dress is fun and flattering over a curvy bottom half. No clinging, whiskering, or need for shapewear. The strappy ballet flats add a feminine and refined touch, and work well on wider feet. The wrap adds a soft vibe. My client looked beautiful and was very comfortable.
