Sundress Styles for Every Body Type


Sundress Styles for Every Body TypeThe Louisiana heat has made its presence well known on our thermometers, as well as our wardrobe.  Sundresses are an easy way to beat the heat, and remain style savvy all the while.  No matter what body type you possess, there is a sundress waiting for you at Shabby Chic Boutique.

For the ladies needing a little help in the bust-line, simply add volume to that area.  You can achieve this by finding a dress that has ruffles or gathers at the neckline.  Also, halter straps enhance a bust, as well as patterns.  You don’t, however, want to wear necklaces because they can draw attention away from the bust-line.  For a fun way to accessorize, pile on the bangles.

Many women strive to trim their waistline in an effort to create an hourglass silhouette.  This look can be created by a fitted bodice, full skirt and a cinched waist.  To dress up your look, add a belt in a coordinating color to spotlight the middle.  Also, try a sundress with an allover pattern, because placement prints can draw attention to unwanted areas.  You can also replace a belt with a fabric sash for a more feminine look.

Floor-length dresses, or maxis as they are called in the fashion world, are a great way to hide the extra pounds we carry in the hip and thigh area.  To find a perfect fitting maxi, straps should hit high enough to give support for a larger chest, and if it has is an Empire waist, it should hit just below the bust – no lower.  Also, try a tie-neck halter to highlight the shoulder area. If you prefer to keep your shoulders and arms covered, we offer breezy shrugs in vibrant colors or the classic black and white. The great thing about maxis is that they are long enough to wear with a great pair of wedges or heels.  They are super comfy and can be found in any fashion magazine.
