Shopping tip 101 Shopping tip One of the best ways to stay focused while shopping is to take a picture with you out of one of your favorite magazines. If you take an image with you, not only will it help you and a sales staff to pull together the look you want, but it will also help you stay focused on what you came to the store for in the first place as well as save money.
Source your magazines-meaning pull out the information that inspires you, put it in a binder and recycle the rest. I started doing this when I was in college and it has been a lot of fun. It also saves time and space.

I love womens shoes. I have no idea why I love them as much as I do. It is a true obsession.

All the girls in my family seemed to be afflicted with it, thought some have it more then others.

I thought for the longest it was some weird little oddity that only my family had.

Summer Fashion Tips for Bottom Heavy (pear shape) Body Types

bottom heavy giles

Summer clothes for bottom heavy body types are to accentuate the top half while minimizing the bottom half. Let’s start on the bottom since that is the part of your body you're most sensitive about. Those of us who are bottom heavy have a tendency to want to cover our derrière and thighs with loose or downright baggy clothes.

Summer Clothes Tip #1

Although you might feel more comfortable, because you believe you look smaller or at least have minimized the girth of your rear, the opposite is usually the effect. Choose pants with a flat panel front, no pleats at all. The pant legs should almost hit the ground to give the illusion of length and help offset the size of your bottom.

Summer Clothes Tip #2

Pant legs should also have some width to them. So flares to palazzo pants are the choices. Never wear tapered pants unless you want to accent your bottom half, also keep your pants loose enough for comfort but not baggy.

If your lucky enough to have a fairly flat tummy them by all means choose pants that are low waisted because it really gives the illusion your bottom is smaller than it is. If you have a tummy as well though choose a higher waist pant to pull the tummy in gently.

Summer Clothes Tip #3

I know it’s the big thing to wear low waisted pants. They fill the racks in the stores and are all over the net on the “what not to wear” kind of websites, but the problem is….. When a woman who has a tummy wears low waisted pants their tummy simply spills over the tops of the pants and it feels awful and looks really bad. This unsightly bulge is almost impossible to hide. Sure it may make your backside look better but it does absolutely nothing for your front.

So unless you’re going to talk to people while facing away from them or wear super loose shirts, sweaters and jackets, choose pants that come up to your natural waistline and comfortably pull in your tummy. At the same time if your tummy is an issue choose tops that end at the top your hip bone or there abouts. Also choose pants and skirts that are darker in color then you’re wearing on top. Do not tuck in.

Summer Clothes Tip #4

Any top style with an interesting neckline will work; form fitting or loose in bold patterns or not, whatever your thing is. Simply choose tops that look like an hourglass (larger at the top and bottom with a smaller waistline).  These tops will naturally accommodate your derrière without a lot of fuss.

Shirts and blouses are great because they have the ability for lots of detail i.e. interesting collars, pockets over the breast and an interesting placket designs to bring the eye up towards your face and away for your backside. Bottom heavy body types can get away with bolder patterned tops in bolder colors.

One last note on tops: finding slim styled tunics or shorter dresses paired with comfortable pants make for an interesting and body-flattering look. Eileen fisher comes to mind when I think of this style. Dresses for bottom heavy body types are empire waist, wrap dress, trapeze and bustier style dresses with fuller skirts.
