The NY Times ran a feature this week on the rising popularity of vintage-inspired dresses. These types of frocks, which have sparked quite the debate, are newly made to look like old styles.
The article sheds light on a type of dress silhouette that is ridiculously flattering on women with hips and butts: the full skirt! Why? Because by gradually moving downward and away from the body, the skirt creates the illusion of a smaller waist. Plus, it won’t cling or pull on your body. If you have some semblance of a lower half, this type of dress is a truly wise choice.
LOOK FOR: a seam, belt, or sash detail that cinches the waistline, a full skirt that falls away from the body in an A-line shape and ends at or just below the knee
