Pleated Skirt with Stretch Waist
When you have an hourglass body shape, you want to accentuate your waist with something light weight, especially in the summer.
I love these light summer pleated skirt that has a stretch band around the waist area. It is super comfortable and not clingy way to accentuate your waist without having to add anything heavy.
In the cooler months, I might wear a belt with a skirt like this, but in summer you do not want to anything that will make you sweat more.
You can also wear these pleated skirts to work with a tank top and light weight linen blazer.

Skin Tone Shoes
When choosing shoes in the summer time, I like to match them to my skin tone. These shoes are super comfortable comfortable and I have been wearing them nonstop lately.
Also, I have a pair of like Tory Burch sandals that I wear a lot that match my skin tone.
When you have a curvy hourglass frame, wearing a monocrome look can slim you out. This look works because it is in the same color family even with a printed bottom.
The shorts have a tie at the waist that brings the eye into the waist area.
You can also throw on this beautiful green blazer even though it doesn’t match exactly it’s very similar and it looks really good together.
This blazer is linen and ideal for summer time. You want to find things that are breathable fabrics for summertime, like cotton, linen, and viscose fabric. The shorts are a linen blend and then the top is a cotton stretch both extremely breathable.
I’m taking a tip from the pear shape because I’m a little bit more bottom heavy at the moment. The ruffle top add wideness to my shoulders, balancing out my bottom half and making my waist look a little bit smaller.
By adding some interest to the shoulders with ruffles this will help make your waist look little bit smaller and create a more dramatic hourglass figure.
I recently sewed this top to look similar to the Nap Top from Hill House Home. I love that it is tight on the top and then it flares out at the stomach area. Check out my inspiration here.
I made it so that the tightness on top ends right at my waist helping to bring the eye into the smallest part of me.
The straps are wider enough so that you can cover your bra straps.
Cut Outs at Waist
The cut outs on this romper hit right at the waist and then flares out so that you’re bringing the eye into the waist.
I really love this romper because the cut outs are not crazy. The just show a pop of skin right there at the waist. It’s nice because when it’s hot in summer you’re getting a little bit of extra breeze.
Here is another super cute cut out dress that I got on Amazon. I really love this one. It’s great for spring and summer time since it is cotton and has some cut outs at the waist.
