Dressing for your body type can be a tricky task. The key is to draw attention to your best assets while keeping eyes off the problem areas. But it isn’t as easy as it sounds, girls! Especially for the ones blessed with a pear-shaped figure. Though a lot of women may envy the curves you have, dressing for the summer can be difficult. But don’t you worry, we’re here with 10 awesome summer styling tips for girls with big thighs that’ll make your life so much simpler!
You don’t have to restrict yourself to a certain style, but tops that don’t cut off right at the widest part of your thighs should be avoided. Instead, invest in pieces that end a little below the slimmest part of your waist and just above the broadest part of your thighs. Don’t go for long tops hoping that they’ll cover your thighs, they might make you look broader!
Straight-fit and boot-cut jeans will always work in your favour. They’ll draw attention away from your thighs and make your body look balanced. With the 60s trends coming back, you shouldn’t be afraid to experiment with these styles. If you’d rather wear skinny jeans, pair them with asymmetrical tops!
Flowy fabrics will flatter your body type by giving it a feminine silhouette. These fabrics will highlight your assets, while the flair will give your body a dainty look.

Fit and flare dresses are perfect for your body type! They have the power to make your frame look petite by highlighting your narrow waist.
Shorts that are too tight might make your legs appear bigger than they are. Try shorts that are slightly loose so they make your thighs look visually slimmer. For a fail-safe look, go for high-waisted shorts!
Vertical stripes give any outfit a slimming effect. It’s because wearing vertical stripe pants or skirts make your body look visually longer and narrow down your thighs. Invest in stripe shorts, trousers in basic colours to make summer styling super easy!
Wide-leg trousers create a straight line starting from your thighs to your toes. This keeps your legs from looking bigger, in comparison to the rest of your body. They also help your legs appear longer. Palazzo pants and other wide-leg trousers are your ultimate saviours during the summer season.
Like we mentioned - accentuating your assets and hiding your problem areas is important. Just like fit and flare dresses, A-line skirts will highlight the narrowest part of your body and make your legs appear slimmer. Add a cutesy belt to give your outfit an instant boost and glam up that waist!
Steer clear of big, bold patterns and go for small prints when it comes to pants. Wearing big prints will make your frame appear bulkier than it is. When opting for something printed, always choose smaller prints in dark colours - this styling tip will also make your legs look more toned!
