Show Some Skin
This year's popular style is to go bare with shoulders and arms on
beautiful display with strapless dresses. There are strapless
dresses, with a full skirt for that Cinderella look, or cut sexily
close to the body for a more modern form. If you're thinking of a
strapless or halter, remember that they place the emphasis on the
bodice. Flattering designs that are flying off the racks this year
are often: gently weaved, beaded, or simple with demure jeweled
The ever popular A-line (also known as princess) is a long cut that
draws the eye downward, and often has a built-in train. This doesn't
mean designers have abandoned the flowing, classic ingredients of
traditional gowns - they still offer that "floating" full skirt, but
cut to flatter the body. These gowns give an hourglass shape without
sacrificing any of the full gown's romance.
Is A Mermaid Style Dress Right For You?
Mermaid style is ever popular. This silhouette is a lot of fun
because it can really show off a curvy figure. It follows the body's
curves, and then flares out at or above the knee, providing a roomy,
airy swish, depending on your fabric choice. If you wish to
de-emphasize your hips, this may not be the best style.
Style And Versatility For The Well-Toned
The sheath works best on thin, well-toned figures. If you want a
more traditional look from this contemporary shape, the addition of
a detachable train can give it the appearance of a ballgown. You
don't need to be tall but if you are petite make sure that the gown
is in proportion to your figure. Too low a waistline could make your
legs appear short.
