Throughout a girl’s lifetime fashion will bounce back and forth from one end of the spectrum to the other. It is important to remember that trends will come and go but basics are forever. You can rest assure your trusty white tee and go-to ballet flats will always have a place in your closet. Today on the blog, I’m going to talk about one of my all-time-favorite basics: the bodycon dress. You can wear the bodycon dress day or night, rain or shine. Why? Because it is SO easy to layer! However, different heights and body types will embrace this silhouette differently. I have put together a few pointers to help guide you when shopping for the perfect bodycon.
Rule 1: Go dark. Bodycon is literally short for “body conscious”. This style is tight and figure hugging, so be sure you are going for a dark, flattering color that doesn’t show it all!
Rule #2 : Wear the right shoe. I like to follow the universal rule of “the higher the hem, the lower the heel”. I tend to go with a chunky boot or mule.
Rule #3 : Don’t be afraid to layer. Whether it be a necklace or a tailored jacket, never be afraid to add a little more excitement to your outfit. I paired mine with a fun colored flannel tied around my waist.
Hopefully these tips helped inspire you to invest in some great bodycon pieces! If you need a little extra help, I have attached some links to my favorite styles below. Enjoy!
