I have a pretty prominently pear shaped figure. And while I’ve come to embrace and love it over the years, I’ve also accepted the fact that dressing for my shape means that certain styles just won’t work for me. One such example is the body hugging jersey dress: I’ve long admired the effortless ease they provide, but couldn’t really wear them well because of my proportionately wider hips. I recently came across this lovely t-shirt dress and, while I figured it probably wouldn’t look good on me, decided to try it on anyway — and was pleasantly surprised by how much of a difference a small detail makes.The front wrap and slightly looser fitted top of this dress definitely proved my prior thinking wrong and, coupled with an oversized cape, has become a go-to summer look.
