Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!!!! :-) Tis the season for the Cocktail Dress! With all of the Holiday parties coming up, it's the perfect time to find that dress that makes you feel fabulous! Here is a quick and simple guide to finding the best dresses to suit your shape! (All examples shown are available at Nordstrom! )
Try finding a dress with an empire waist that hits at the narrowest part of your body, just under your bust. Apple shapes usually have incredible legs so show off those gams! Details at the Neckline help draw the attention up towards your face.
This shape is the classic model shape. It's easy to pull off a variety of looks with this body shape. Why not go dramatic and add a little bling? Wear something eye-catching. A sheath, one shoulder dress is dramatic as well as giving the appearance of curves.
This shape is the classic "pin-up girl" shape. If you have an hourglass shape, accentuate that waist! Anything the is fitted at the waist will look lovely. I love the classic 50's and early 60s style dresses on the Hourglass figure. Anything with a sweetheart or v-neck will also be lovely.
An A-Line silhouette nipped in at the waist flows lightly over the hips helping to minimize the appearance of a fuller lower half. Wearing something strapless can also help emphasize the bust and draw the attention to your striking upper half- the waist, arms, shoulders, and neck tend to be especially lovely on the pear shape.
Most of all, choose something YOU absolutely love and feel gorgeous in! No amount of style tips can take the place of confidence and feeling beautiful in your own skin! Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy Holiday! Much Love and stay safe!
