We're in the midst of wedding season, and I'm sharing some of the BEST wedding guest dress options for flattering a pear shaped body!We just got back from an epic road trip. We drove from Los Angeles up to the San Francisco Bay Area to visit my family. While we were up there, my husband snuck away for a two night getaway to attend a friend's wedding. We took naps, slept in, actually TALKED TO EACH OTHER, and got dressed up. I'm not going to lie, these days I wear more converse than heels and more shorts than fancy dresses. It felt amazing to get gussied up, and dance the night away.
The Best Wedding Guest Dress for a Pear Shaped Body
I shared my wedding guest dress over on Instagram stories, and you guys loved it (bonus, it's under $100)! So I wanted to share a few tips for buying a wedding guest dress that you will feel great in.
Draw Eyes UP: for a pear shaped body, balance is key. The reason my dress was so flattering? The colored neckline draws the eyes upward. Think necklines, ruffles, and lace accents.
Fabric: Try a more structured fabric. Thin fabric tends to make curves look bigger, whereas structured lines and fabric tend to accentuate and flatter.
Silhouette: certain cuts will ALWAYS flatter. A-line skirts are amazing on a pear shaped body, midi skirts can look great if they hit at the right length. A sweeping maxi will be stunning if it cuts IN at the waist.
A few of my favorite wedding guest dress options:
POPS OF NAVY:

Colorblocked Dress: This is the dress that I wore to our wedding date. I have to admit…..I wasn't sure about it when I saw it online. But it fits like a DREAM and that colored neckline? It's my favorite (bonus, it's only $88).
Navy Stud Earrings: These classic stud earrings can be worn everyday, and are PERFECT with the navy neckline.
Beaded Clutch: A great purse is the key to any formal look. This beaded clutch is a killer price, and can easily be used again with jeans and a simple tee for a girls' night out.
Navy Heels: Navy heels will add a subtle pop of color, and can be worn year round!
Light Blue Maxi Dress: Dreaming of looking like Cinderella on her way to the ball? This light blue maxi dress will do the trick! The waistline is super flattering, and that color is perfect for a summer wedding!
Gold Hoop Earrings:If you don't already own a pair of hoop earrings, then these are a must purchase.
Gold Glitter Heels: Something about these heels just scream Cinderella. Aren't they stunning? And they're on SALE!
