Benefits of wearing an a-line dress
I’m a big fan of the a-line dress. Many silhouettes can look good for the right body types. The a-line skirt or dress is versatile and can be flattering.
Create the appearance of a waist
The right dress can be gathered at the waist, making a shape for those who don’t naturally have a defined waistline. A more casual day allows for one to tuck a top into a flared skirt. This technique emphasises the shape more than an untucked top. However, I naturally have quiet a waist and prefer a loose flowing top that hides my middle.
Dresses that hide a tummy
Particular women feel the desire to hide a natural permanent belly or a baby bump. Either way, pieces that flare from the waist can hide lumps and bumps more than a straighter silhouette.
A more feminine look
A-line dresses and skirts can provide a feminine appearance. Longer hemlines will be reminiscent of 50s styles. A mini skirt or dress can feel more modern.
Many work outfits involve pencil skirts and shift dresses. A more flared version can be suitable for the office, if worn in a plain neutral colour and minimal details.
Wear it your way
These were some ways in which I select outfits for my body type. We’re all different.
