1. Bandage Dress

Super versatile and ultra-flattering, Bandage dresses have been in fashion ever since Herve Leger introduced them many years ago. Bandage dresses have a similar silhouette to the bodycon shape, and they accentuate the bust and hips to highlight your assets. They are the cornerstones of every classy woman’s wardrobe and help achieve that stylish plus sexy look without needing a flawless figure.

2. Peplum Dress

Combine fun, fit and flare, and you have a Peplum dress! The Peplum top or dress usually has a flared strip of fabric around the waistline which can make your waist appear smaller while still hugging your hips and thighs. A simple pair of flats make a daytime look, and you can swap it out with high heels for the perfect night look. Nipped waist and longer legs? Yes, please!

3. Blazer Dress

A menswear classic with a flirtatious twist, the Blazer dress is a bold and modern look created for businesswomen. What is a Blazer dress, you ask? It is simply lengthening a double-breasted jacket and tightening it at the waist to give it an hourglass shape. You can wear a figure-hugging variation with heels to parties or underpin one with cigarette pants to create something more formal.
