Embrace your silhouette this year and choose clothing that enhances your every curve. First, determine which shape you are, peruse our dress selections, then get to shopping your best dress fashion. Get ready to sizzle in style this year with dresses that bring out the best in you.
Athletic figures are basically square shaped with minimal definition. Enhance the curves you do have with a ruched or wrap dress. A cinched mid-section is also ideal for giving the illusion of a more feminine waistline. From Carolina Herrera to Michael Kors, get in on Spring’s latest bold floral trend with Hale Bob’s fuchsia floral jacquard tank dress, perfect for the athletic figure. Another flattering option we love is the purple vintage jersey mock wrap dress also from Hale Bob. To play up your curves, streamline your look with a simple gold watch from Betsey Johnson and matching gold strappy heels from Guess. Add a gold clutch by Sarah Jessica Parker and you are ready to rock this Spring in style.
Sizzle up your nightlife with a bright ruched fitted dress to play up the slight curves of your silhouette. We love Hale Bob’s short sleeved ruched dress paired with Steve Madden ankle strap heels and a Hale Bob black stretch Bolero jacket for chillier evenings. Embrace your fit althetic shape this Season and look for form-fitting dress styles to enhance your sleek shape.
Show off your curves with an adjustable belted dress to highlight just how tiny your waist is. Look for dresses with belts or fitted waistlines to enhance and flatter your figure. We love Hale Bob’s silk jersey shirt dress with adjustable tie belt to suit your every curve. Accessorize with a bold Marc Jacobs black handbag, suitable for all Seasons, and Miu Miu embellished black sunglasses for a glam Spring style.
We also love Hale Bob’s blue silk chiffon shirt dress, belted at the waist to flatter the hourglass silhouette. For chillier Spring days, pair with a light sweater or white silk jacket from Hale Bob. Be proud of your body this Season, and look for dress shapes to flatter and enhance your natural curves.
Apples usually have thin legs and tend to carry most of their weight around the mid-section. Look for swing or empire waist dresses to flow over your waistline and draw attention to your lower body. We love Hale Bob’s ivory jeweled silk tunic dress paired with Spring’s hottest gladiator sandal from Free People and Topshop’s fringe handbag. Dress up the look with black and gold strappy heels from Michael Kors and a Tory Burch black clutch and you are ready to dine in style.
Flatter your “Apple” shape and go “Boho Chic” this Spring with a Hale Bob black and white Cabana silk cotton shirt dress paired with Free People’s black ankle booties and a floppy hat from Urban Outfitters. Embrace your shape and look for dresses that emphasize your toned legs, drawing attention away from the mid-section for a perfectly styled YOU this Season.
Triangles are defined by a small upper body and wider hips and thighs. Look for “fit-and-flare” dresses to enhance your thin bust and waistline, and hide your thicker lower body. Get a similar look as pictured above with Hale Bob’s blue sleeveless silk jersey tank dress paired with ankle strap heels from Kate Spade and Diane Von Furstenberg’s newest oversized ready-to-go black tote. If you want, you can further emphasize your small mid-section with a black leather studded belt from Versace.
For a classic LBD style, we love Hale Bob’s black color block flare dress, perfect for any occasion. Pair with Lucky Brand flat sandals and a chic Ralph Lauren sunhat for a day at the beach or casual days out. Dress up your look and dance the night away with embellished heels from River Island and jewelry from Betsey Johnson.
Directly opposite of the triangle figure is the inverted triangle shape, defined by a broad upper body and smaller lower body. Minimize your broad shoulders and emphasize your smaller waist and hipline with “A-line” dresses that flare out slightly. Channel your inner princess with a Kate Middleton inspired outfit by pairing Hale Bob’s embroidered jacquard knit A-line dress with classic Jimmy Choo black pumps and a simple yet sleek black satin clutch by White House Black Market.
We also love Hale Bob’s chic black color block A-line dress paired with Sam Edelman ankle strap heels and gold bangles for a sizzling night on the town. Or go “athleisure” with your favorite Adidas sneakers, a Tory Burch tote, and Kate Spade sunhat for simple Summer styling.
