Because the weather is nicer, the summer is a great opportunity to get out and about, which means you have to have outfits that are both flattering and cooler. A wardrobe is not complete without a few Summer Dresses. But before you reach for something to wear, consider these suggestions to help you select the most flattering dresses for your body type.
Hour Glass Shape
If you are shaped like an hourglass your waist will be the focal point but so will your hips and shoulders. Consider a strapless sundress with a pretty floral print. A dress with an A-line skirt that falls just above the knee is very flattering too.
If you are a fuller lady and your waistline isn’t where you want people to focus, consider dresses that highlight your top (leaving a little to the imagination) and elongate your torso. These types of dress draw the eyes up. Another flattering option is a halter dress. They aren’t fitting and they highlight your shoulders. Select the dress that falls just above the knee which will help you to achieve a flirty and comfortable look.
If you are fuller on the bottom and smaller on the top consider a swing dress. It is sleeveless so you can show off your shoulders. And it flairs out just enough so fuller hips aren’t an issue. In addition, the swing dress has different lengths (longer in the front and back and shorter on the sides) all falling above the knee.
Off the Shoulder Dress
No matter the body type, an off the shoulder dress is a must for the summer. It provides the right amount of flirty mixed with equal parts of sensual for every summer event.
The secret to achieving the most flattering look is where the eye goes. These suggestions will help you accentuate the most flattering aspects for your particular body type. Moreover, it’s important that you know that you are perfect regardless of your body type. You should feel beautiful in whatever you decide to wear. So, grab whatever dress achieves that for you and have fun.
