See ya later, Spanx. Thanks to the fashion genius that is Stella McCartney (and a ton of appearances by red carpet regular Kate Winslet), everyone and their mother is obsessed with the British designer’s “miracle dress,” which made its runway debut last year for Fall 2011 and also comes with polka dots. Unlike Spanx, this dress comfortably creates the illusion of a curvy figure rather than sucking everything in (i.e. Spanx) and feeling constricted.
Since then, other designers and fast fashion houses have taken note of this stylish magic trick and added black panels to not only dresses, but tops, skirts, and pants too. So instead of trying out that new juice cleanse for that upcoming wedding reception, why not have a look at our slideshow for an instant (and easy) svelte look.
