Now that the weather is finally giving us endless sun and warmer temperatures its time to start shopping for staple summer dresses. After wearing boots and stockings all winter being able to go bare legged in a summer dress is the best reward for warm weather. I fell in love with my vintage striped dress for many reasons; not only is it versatile and can be worn for work or play but the print is also very forgiving and highlights my shape perfectly. How?Let me explain…
When we go shopping we often look for something visually appealing or anything that’s “in style” but we neglect to look for clothes that look best on our body. Whether you know it or not, certain prints, shapes and fabrics can be universally flattering to your figure. My vintage striped dress has vertical stripes which automatically elongate my figure & the belt (that came with the dress) is strategically placed at the smallest point of my waist giving me an automatic hourglass shape. This dress is instantly slimming & sorry to say I bought it at a vintage store so I have no link for you to buy the exact one. But, I have gathered 5 dresses online that will instantly slim you & visually take away those last few winter pounds we are all working to get off. Read all about them below.
This dress is named a Contour dress for a reason. The black panels on the side contour your figure by color play to create a perfect hourglass. Using a bright blue as the main color is perfect because the hour glass shape pops out and the black panels fade into the background.
I love this dress because it's another great way to wear stripes. There's a misconception in fashion that stripes make you look bigger, but that;s not always true. Where the stripes are and what direction they go is the real trick to pulling off stripes. With this dress the striped pattern at the top creates a slimming effect and the stripes at the bottom create balance and perfect proportions.
I like this dress because it looks like a normal red dress, that is until you find out what's underneath. This dress has built in shape wear in the lining which is genius not only because it saves you the step of putting on spanx before getting dressed but it also is practically invisible.

Another strategically striped dress for a flattering fit. The asymmetrical stripes in this dress create an optical illusion that's slimming to the eye. With a drop waist that hits the smallest part of your figure, it's not only unique but also gives a perfect slimming effect.
