Hi.

I'm Kristin! A short & curvy girl seeking clothes that fit. Originally from the South, I'm now taking on NYC! My blog is dedicated to providing style and fit guides for petite-pear shaped women.

THE PETITE PEAR'S GUIDE TO SHORTS: HIGH-WAISTED DENIM SHORTS

 

Style Cliff Notes

T-shirt – Adidas Originals

Shorts – American Apparel

Purse – Topshop

Shoes – Converse

Sunglasses – Aldo

 

American Apparel High-Waisted  Denim Shorts – Size 29

 What I love…

  • High-waisted – Over the last year I have been hooked on high-waisted bottoms because they are so flattering. Why am I such a fan? Because they define my waist, which is the smallest part of my body as a pear-shaped woman. By defining my waist, these shorts highlight my curvaceous hips which I love!
  • Acid Wash – I never thought I would be into acid wash shorts, but I love these because they're a fun way to mix up the basics in my wardrobe.
  • Tried & true – I actually posted about these same shorts a year ago and I still love them. As I mentioned in an earlier post during my series on finding shorts for pear-shaped bodies, I like to buy styles I can see myself wearing more than one season. Since I personally find it hard to find clothes that fit well, I tend to keep the ones that do in my closet for a while :)

Adidas Originals T-Shirt - Size S

 What I loved…

  • Very comfortable - I loved the fit of this tee! It was not too tight or not too loose.
  • Styling advice - I chose to tuck my t-shirt into the skirt so it would show off my waist, which is the narrowest part of my body. Another reason I tucked in my T-shirt is because I didn’t want it to hang down really far and cover up most of my mini skirt since I have a short torso.
