Style Tip: Keep it monochromatic cool like Jessica Simpson. Be careful not to go overboard with one color, and break up the monotony with a slight variation of the hue you’re rocking. More specifically, tie in the camel color in this belt with camel colored tall boots. Add even more dimension (and an added layer of warmth!) to this look with a long sleeve brown tee-shirt.

Fashion Dresses

Shopping for fashion dresses is something that many self-conscious women dread, so for these women, it helps to know what kinds of dresses complement the different body types. Keeping this in mind, retailers who purchase stock from wholesalers will probably want to buy a large variety of styles unless if they specialize in clothing for a specific body type, such as plus size or petites.

Eliminating problem spots

Many women have a specific “problem spot” that they feel is the least flattering part of their figure. Whether this is the waist, hips, or legs, these spots can be played down. For example, a thick waist can be hidden under an empire waist dress, and someone who feels self-conscious about her legs can cover up with a maxi dress.

Another common problem is height. Usually, short women want to look taller and vice versa, and dresses can go a long way in helping a woman create the illusion of a desired height. For example, a petite woman can look taller by buying form-fitting dresses in darker colors. This provides not only a slimming effect but an elongating effect as well. Dressing in any one color will enhance height, so tall women who don’t want to play up that feature might lean toward dresses with a variety of color.

A problem that often plagues both tall and petite women alike is an undefined waistline. For women who don’t want to draw attention to the waist, a good way to deflect attention from there is to play up a more favorable feature. For example, a slender neck can be complemented by a necklace, or long legs can be shown off in a dress that stops a few inches above the knees.

Basic Fashion Dress Types

The A-line dress is a classic style that will last in someone’s wardrobe for years to come. It is form-fitting at the top and flares out gradually going downward, so it is a good choice for defining the waistline and hiding wider hips.

Like the A-line dress, the maxi dress is tighter at the top and loose flowing at the bottom, but the difference is that it runs all the way down to the ankles. It is an informal style, so it can be worn many times instead of sitting in a closet until the next special occasion. It is feminine, flattering, and for those who feel self-conscious about their bodies, it provides great coverage.

The empire waist is also a good choice for women who want to hide a wider waistline. On this style, the waistline is set anywhere between the bust and the natural waistline. Because of this, it also helps in accentuating the bust.

The sheath dress fits tightly throughout the body, which makes it popular among women with slender figures. For women who want to accentuate curves, though, a good way to do so in a sheath dress is to play it up with accents like ruching or bold prints.

The above styles are just a few examples of the many different kinds of fashion dresses on the market. Height, weight, and overall shape need to be taken into consideration, as each cut of dress has a different effect. Many women who feel self-conscious have a difficult time determining what their strong spots are, so the key to choosing fashion dresses is knowing which ones will play up a woman’s best features. OpenStock Apparel is a wholesaler that carries fashion dresses to flatter figures of all types, from petites to plus sizes.
