THE SIMPLE WHITE TEE
The tee I’ll be styling today is a simple one from Old Navy that’s been hanging in my closet for a couple of years now. It features a loose swingy silhouette, and a feminine rounded neckline, though for my pear shape I typically prefer a v-neck. Take note of how I accessorize the neckline to draw the eye away from my hips and thighs (one of my preferred ways of styling a pear shape – you can read more tips about pear shapes HERE)
THE BOOTCUT JEANS
I’m styling Democracy Itty Bitty bootcut jeans in this post, because again, bootcuts are my preferred jean of choice for pear shapes, though I am open to trying all kinds of new styles of denim too…I mean…you never know what will work until you try it, right? I do think bootcut jeans are a bit dressier too and work well for this post. They look great with a bit of a heel or a pointed toe pump too. The long lean look will give you legs for days…and after all…who doesn’t want that? (More tips for styling pants can be found HERE)
STYLING A PLAIN WHITE TEE WITH A BLAZER
This first outfit formula features a gray blazer, which makes this look perfect for casual Fridays at the office, or lunch with friends. I added my favorite Converse sneakers to give the outfit a more casual vibe. To dress up the neckline I just added a pearl statement necklace I’ve had for years, drawing the eye up and away from the hips.
STYLING A PLAIN WHITE TEE WITH A CARGO JACKET
The second outfit features an adorable pink anorak style cargo jacket. I got this pink jacket from Stitch Fix a few years ago, and bring it out each spring. It’s the perfect weight for our wacky spring weather, and the pink hue is spot-on perfect for spring! I dressed the outfit down with neutral booties and simple jewelry.

STYLING A PLAIN WHITE TEE WITH A CARDIGAN
If you’ve followed me for a while, then you know that cardigans are totally my thing. You can’t beat the simple outfit formula of top, jeans, sweater done. I throw cardigans on over my graphic tees, dressy blouses, and even dresses. There’s just something about them that makes an outfit feel finished to me. If you’re pear-shaped like me, look for styles either drape softly and hit you in all the right places. I added a fun, lightweight scarf to the look, along with blue slip-on sneakers. With the scarf, no necklace is necessary, so I just added simple earrings to the mix.
