This Fall there’s a new shape to fashion: The Hourglass. Dresses this season are taking a step back in time to the prim fit that used to rule the world. No longer just a vintage style from the 40s and 50s, The Hourglass Dress is hitting the mainstream.
The Hourglass Dress accentuates the bust and hips. This fashion is known as the woman’s best friend, allowing you to show off your natural curves. While there are stick thin models walking the runways, the real trend is feeling confident and comfortable in whatever shape you’re in.
The 50’s fit gets an update this Fall with new modern prints and accessories. Even if you don’t have an hourglass figure, like most of us, you can still pull off the Hourglass Dress. Wear a blazer, jacket, or cardigan with your dress to give it a more modern feel, and add on a belt to your outfit for a cinched waist look. Thick or thin belts worn at the waist will give you the hourglass look.
The best thing about the Hourglass Dress is that it can be worn in the workplace, and out on the town. The style can be dressed up or down, depending on where you’re heading. Wear this dress with high heels and a small clutch purse if you’re going out at night, or with a pair of cute flats and a cardigan during the day. This is one fashion must have for Fall 2012.
In Amazon's recent newsletter they highlighted the Hourglass Dress as the biggest trend for this Fall. With new prints and details, this classic fit dress has become a modern staple. This style with a cinched or empire waist is going to be all the rage for any formal event, so make sure you find the perfect dress for your event!
