Seeing Red

December 15th, 2015

What image does a drop-waist dress conjure for you? Often associated with the glitz and glam of the 20s, the loose-fitting drop-waist dresses (which fall to a drape or ruffle at the hem) are a natural choice for slender shapes. However, with a few simple hints, gals with curves can also wear this trendy style.

I will admit that this is a style I have always been hesitant to wear. Then, a few years ago I hosted a charity fashion show with a Great Gatsby theme. I knew I had to wear a fun and flirty drop-waist dress. But how could I make it work with an hourglass shape? The answer: Paying attention to the details.
