(NC) — Every woman needs that quintessential little black dress (LBD) that fits her impeccably and can come to her rescue in a pinch. Exude style and feel comfortable at whatever holiday soirée you have planned by simply narrowing in on the ideal dress for your shape. With a packed holiday season approaching, use these tips to help you choose a flawless LBD before the closet crunch is here.
Apple-shaped? Choose a drop-waist: If you’re heavier in the middle and above the waist, then you’re apple-shaped. Get glam with a Jessica Bodré dress with tie waist. Its drop-waist moves attention downwards to draw the eye away from your top.
Pear-shaped? Try a v-neck with empire waist: Choose a v-neck and empire waist to draw attention upwards and create a balanced silhouette. The v-neck will elongate your upper body and the flare will move the eye away from your midsection.
Hourglass figure? Pick a shift dress: You’re an hourglass shape if your bust and hips are well-balanced with a defined waist. A shift dress is simple but embodies a timeless understated glam. Fitted and fabulous, a collared dress will hug your curves in all the right places and the detailed neckline adds a touch of playfulness.
