Fit and Flare Dresses Highlight Your Waist
Fit and flare dresses are perfect for highlighting the natural hourglass waistline since they nip in between bust and hips. For a look that wows, pair a fit and flare dress with a moto jacket and ankle-strap kitten heels. Finish this ladylike look with a layered multi-strand pearl necklace and an envelope clutch.
Wrap Dresses Cinch Your Middle
Wrap dresses look good on every body shape and are especially stunning on hourglass frames because they offer a flattering v-neckline, cinch the waistline and flow over the hips with an A-line skirt. You’ll be looking chic from coffee to cocktails by layering on a fitted blazer, metallic statement earrings and lace-up heels.
A Fitted Sheath Hugs Your Curves
If there were ever a dress made just for your figure, it would be a fitted sheath dress. This style hugs your curves perfectly, and the midi length adds height to your frame by creating an elongated silhouette. Try a charcoal dress with a scoop neck, nude block heels, and a pair of statement earrings for a jaw-dropping ensemble even the Kardashians would envy.
A Belted Shirt Dress Adds Comfort
Looking for something a bit more relaxed? Reach for a menswear-inspired shirt dress. This structured style will glide over your curves without drowning you in fabric. Go for a piece with a belted waist–a must-add accessory for defining your waist in this straighter silhouette–and toss on your go-to booties for an effortless weekend-ready look.
