The Pleated Skirt
This is the best investment any pear shape could make. The swishy cut will hide heavy hips and the nipped-in waist will hug you at your smallest point.
TIP 1: Modern updates like sharp pleats and graphic shapes give this classic a current feel.
TIP 2: Its A-line style will play up your best assets and hide any lumps and bumps around your middle.
TIP 3: Play with colour to create a slimming effect. For instance, a skirt with a dark upper half will automatically trim the waist and hip region.
