The sculpted little dress

One of the best investments you can make this season is a sculpted little dress. Also known as the structured little dress, this new trend is about making bold but impressive statements on the runway. The silhouette is all about clear lines but dramatic pieces, with draping. It also comes with ruffles, peplum waists and bold shoulders. For colours, black is basically the best way to go, but if not an option for your skintone, then choose a sculpted dress in one of this season’s bold bright colors.

Whichever you choose, the dress is feminine and classy.

1. Avoid buying a dress that is too tight..

2. Depending on your body shape, decide on what you need to accentuate, hips, waist or breasts. Avoid structured shapes around the hips if you are pear-shaped, and ruffles and embellishments on the bustline if you are well-endowed. Balance out a silhouette by keeping the detailing in the areas which you want to accentuate.

3. Add a bold necklace or some stacked bracelets or cuffs for an evening look.

4. Don’t overdo the footwear, keep it simple and strappy.
