Style School: Which Waist Will Help You Dress For Success?

April 2, 2008 by SheFindsErin
shefinds |

Welcome back, fashion-philes. Have you been keeping up with your research? Last week's class had us pondering the definition of Dupioni, and surely once you spotted the lovely lemon yellow wrap dress from Calypso Christiane Celle as the Dupioni dress, you snapped one up in every color.

By definition, Dupioni silk is a nubby silk made from yarn that is uneven or varied in width. The raised horizontal "slubs" shouldn't be confused with flubs — in nature, this phenomenon is due to two silkworms sewing one cocoon together, a rarity that creates beautifully unique material that is light enough for spring fashions yet durable enough for upholstery or drapery.

For this week's quiz, we'll continue on with dresses, but we'll shift our focus from fabrics to styles. How about a multiple choice? Match each dress above with its appropriate style below.

A. Empire Waist
B. Shift
C. Drop Waist

Bonus points will be given if you can correctly identify which fit flatters which body type. Stumped? Check back next week for this week's quiz answers and for your next fashionable assignment. And remember, the SheFinds professors keep office hours. Ask your most burning fashion questions in the comment section below; we'd be glad to help you in your quest for style knowledge!
