The Bodycon Dress :
The famous “Bodycon dress” has been a first love for many. It has been quite popular from the 50’s among those who want to look chic, sexy and elegant. As the word suggests, Bodycon has been derived from the word – “Body Conscious”. It has long been a part of classic dressing and is a statement in itself.
It is a perfect accessory for the body. I feel if you can adorn a bodycon dress with grace, you can carry any outfit like it is your second skin. They are designed to perfectly fit a woman’s figure and never fails to look flattering.
My summer closet has many fitted colourful dresses. But the one’s I have added recently are the more casual one’s, like the one I am wearing. A fitted dress does more talking than most styles. They ooze simplicity out of your personality.
I love the cotton lycra dresses as they are soft and close to comfort during summer season. These dresses look good in many fabrics like velvet, silk, lace, polyester, etc. Bodycons make an unforgettable impact.
Mid – Thigh stretch dresses have been trendy and a go to dress for a night out. Designer Herve Leger invented the “Bandage Dress” in 1989 that swarmed the world of fashion. It was on the runways making everyone drool. It was originally known as “the bender” as it moulds the body perfectly. These dresses are unquestionably sexy and timeless.
There is some sense of confidence this dress oozes as it wraps you completely, flaunting your curves with elegance. Today one has many options to choose from high end brands to the high street one’s, offering multiple choices in fabrics and cuts. I love wearing the bodycon dresses but this summer I decided to add some longer ones as there vibe is more Vintage.
Fitted dresses have been in vogue from the 1950’s. I have aways found that a good fitted dress makes anyone beam like a Diva. The more informal fitted dress like mine is loved by the liberated generation as it is casual and trendy. The black dress with the “Love stripe” on both sides makes is a perky casual outfit. It clearly defies the old boring conservative styles.
Remember the famous peace – T shirts? They always make a statement and reflects a state of mind of the one wearing it. Love is a powerful emotion and I simply love flaunting the message on my dress. It makes me happy and empowered. These dresses are fun and can be worn to an informal get together with absolute flair.
I like hanging around in the long fitted dresses as they allow you the freedom of movement with style. Of course, the more you enjoy a dress, it shows in your body language and that is the advantage of dressing in a long bodycon dress.
Sneakers have come back with a big bang and today they are also being worn with formals and informal outfits. Sneakers are not only comfortable but are the new cool. They look perfect when teamed with dresses and suits.
I am wearing a stripy bodycon dress with sneakers and they make me look sporty and strong. Today strong is the new sexy and I love to see that fashion is going back to basics. In the 70’s and 80’s people wore sneakers with just everything and there you go, it is back again with so much glamour devoted to it. Sneakers are the millennials stilletos. They give a relaxed and strong vibe. It just looks a non complex choice.
I find the combination of sneakers & bodycon dress a powerful one. It has a no fuss vibe. It is one of my favourite look this summer. I love to accessorise it with a simple belt as it accentuates the waist, making you look absolutely stunning. A belt always adds more body to your style.
So this summer grab your flattering bodycon and flaunt those curves with much ease.
