Shop Till You Drop For Drop-Waist Dresses: It's The New Silhouette You Need To Try
August 6, 2012
Ever since I saw Alicia of Cheetah Is The New Black rocking this black DVF drop-waist dress on her blog, I’ve been obsessing over the drop-waist trend. At first, I had assumed that this loose-fitting trend which highlights a less than flattering part of your body could only be worn by models and leggy 6 foot somethings, however, I figured if tiny Alicia could pull it off, so could I. The trick to wearing this style without having it resemble a burlap sack?
1. Always wear heels. Otherwise, the drop waist will make your legs look stumpy.
2. Don’t over-layer. As big a fan as I am of layering, this dress will look bulky if paired with anything but a light, cropped jacket.
3. Put a bib on it. A short, chunky statement necklace is your best bet for accessories.
Now that you know how to wear it–what are you waiting for?
