You'll Be The Incredible Shrinking Woman In This Season's "Illusion" Trend
August 15, 2012
Introducing the Illusion Dress — as in, it creates the illusion that the woman who is wearing it has either a) lost 10 pounds, or b) invested in an amazing pair of Spanx. Well, the no-magician-necessary trend is back for fall, and it’s gone way beyond dresses–from frocks, to tops, even to pants, this style is sure to flatter on even the chubbiest of fat days (don’t believe us? Ask Kate Winslet). Your rapidly disappearing mid-section will remind others of a certain rail-thin Duchess (we’re not naming names).
From creating an hourglass shape to thinning your thighs, the contrast trend is here for good. We’ve rounded up a few fall favorites in the slideshow below. You’re very welcome.
