Color blocking is one of the fastest ways to make you appear slimmer. The long strips of black in this dress help to nip in her waist and remove inches from a quick glance. The dark purple can help to conceal any bumps from the holiday food frenzy.
The different shapes made by the blocking can be flattering style for all body types. It’s hard to find a shape that flatters everyone but a simple body skimming sheath can do that. This dress would be perfect for all occasions from work to a holiday party.
I’ve noticed more and more women on the street embracing the cape trend. Depending on the pattern they can be worn to any event from formal to casual. The draped look is flattering on all body types by skimming over your curves but still showing they exist. A good contrast to the looser top is to have tighter pants. I love wearing tighter pants to show off my legs or any change to throw on leggings with high boots. Although you always have to make sure the cap or top is long enough to cover you up!
