Party Dresses for Your Bodyshape!


I put together three different outfits styled around some cute dresses for the upcoming party season.  With Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year just around the corner, I thought this would be a useful post!  I also gave my opinion on what would be more flattering for certain body shapes.  I hope some of you find this helpful!



Dress #1: Perfect for the boyish body shape, this dress has a racer back and halter neck with lots of gathering in the front creating volume and giving the illusion of a fuller frame!  

Dress: Benetton (similar style by Dorothy Perkins here)
Footless Tights: M&S
Boots: ASOS
Clutch: Vintage (similar style by M&S here)
Earrings: Accessorize
Jacket: H&M (similar style by Oasis here)



Dress #2: Super flattering for girls with curves, hourglass or full-figures.  The structured shape and cinched in waist accentuate the natural curves of your body :) 

Dress: French Connection (similar style from Oasis here)
Blazer: Zara (similar style/price, different colour from ASOS here)
Tights: ASOS
Shoes: New Look (get them in nude here)
Clutch: Vintage (similar style in black by Fiorelli here)
Earrings: Accessorize



Dress #3: Amazing on apple-shaped girls, this dress balances out the frame by adding volume to the lower body with the pockets and tulip skirt while flattering the upper body with the v-neck.  The simple waist-line and zipper elongate the mid-section and make it appear slimmer!

Dress: Whistles
Tights: ASOS
Coat: H&M (simillar style by Vanessa Bruno in black here)
Shoes: New Look (get them in nude here)
Clutch: Vintage (similar style by New Look here)
Earrings: Accessorize


Let me know which dress is your favourite!  Hope this helps, and that you all have a great time this holiday and party season!  :) 
Stay Stylish!
xoxo

  5. I just can't decide on my favorite look, i love the dress from number two and the coat from number 3. Could you do a closet tour? because it seems you have a lot of hidden gems, you always have pieces that are absolutely stunning x x

  10. @Kristin Haha, sorry I didn't forget I just didn't have enough party dresses to go round! Will do a video for pear shapes soon.

    @Anonymous#1 I have a video called Welcome to my Wardrobe where I show everything but I didn't go into detail or show every piece :/ Sorry! I thought it would be too long! But I can do something similar again.

    @lakebreeze I still can't comment on your blog! :( Everytime I try to leave a comment the box disappears, I have no idea why!

    @Janaina Yes, I love it too :)
