The summer dress often becomes the one item in our closets that gets the most mileage. It brings us from afternoon outings to evening soirées, and maybe — in some cases — all the way back to work again the next morning.
So, we don't mean to apply the pressure, but finding the right one matters, Which is why we put together a simple guide to selecting the frock shape that best fits your frame. Ahead, meet your sartorial match that'll complement you so well, you'll spend the season together in love.
Short Legs — If you're hoping to fake legs for days, the trick is to pick up the hem. A short shift dress that doesn't cling to your frame will help hide the line of your hips — and therefore, make your legs look inches longer.
Busty — Vertical prints are golden for minimizing a fuller bust. However, a lady like shape will also cinch your midsection so that the dress will fit perfectly over all your proportions — not just the largest one. Also, be mindful of your straps: Pick a dress that allows for you to still wear your most supportive bras.
Hourglass — Peekaboo cutouts can be tricky, but not so much for you, hourglass. Accent your little middle with these side slits, which will show off all your natural curves. In case you're cautious of being a little too risqué, go for a maxi length that's sexy but not overly so.
Petite & Compact — Because of your smaller stature, you may have to be cautious of embellishments and fabric details that swallow you up. So, skip the frills and pick a dress with a serious eye-catching print instead. This linear tropical option with a short hem will also help create an elongated line on your petite frame.
The Pear — To best flatter your derrière, opt for flared skirts with a bit of movement, instead of too-tight body-cons. You'll feel comfortable and balance the overall proportions of your frame. Plus, this fitted halter will also instantly draw eyes up, instead of soley focusing on you-know-where.
