It's no secret that the GTT Team can talk. We've spent many a lunchtime sharing stories and have become pros at typing out a whole social media post without looking at the screen because we're so busy talking about books , whatever we're watching on Netflix right now (the current obsession is Chicago Fire btw) or recounting that super weird dream we had the night before. But if there's one thing we never get tired of talking about, it's the endless benefits of a good old LBD! This flattering style has been our go to for years now, but really can you blame us?
Tiered dresses are having a real moment right now, and we're LOVING this one from Vero Moda! The flutter sleeves of this style create a visual distance from the arm to the material of the dress for a flattering look, while the shift style of the dress skims over the tummy, mid section, and hips to draw the eye away from this area. The tiered skirt adds that little bit of volume to the bottom of the dress and the slit up the side allows for movement and breaks up the visual lines of the hem to bring a real element of interest!
More of a mini dress kinda gal? We've got you! The bodycon fit of this style hugs the curves to really help create that hourglass shape, while the shirred detailing makes for maximum comfort throughout the day as well as allowing for ease of movement. The on-trend frill hem of this style adds volume to the bottom of the legs (Inverted Triangle shaped girls, you're welcome!) and creates a distance between the legs and the material of the dress for a slimming effect on the legs. This is highlighted even further by the higher hemline that never fails to elongate your legs. Kendall Jenner who?!
As much as we love our bright colours, there's something about a black dress with a fresh tan! For this reason, we know already that there will be a space in our suitcase for this mini dress! The tie waist of this style never fails to pull in the waistline and draw the eye to this area and away from the tummy and mid section. The lightweight material would also make for total comfort on days spent laying by the pool and nursing a nasty sunburn (I'm sure it will turn into a tan eventually!)
While we mostly associate our favourite black dresses with nights out, they're just as flattering in a day dress! This ribbed style hugs the curve to help give us that envied hourglass shape. The simplicity of this style also allows you to add layers for the perfect weekend look without seeming too overpowering, you can either go for a classic denim jacket (our summer go-to) or an on trend button down for a street style inspired feel that we love!
I'm sure that by now you're all very well versed on our deep love of satin midis, after all we didn't speak of much else when this style from Ivy Lane arrived with us before Christmas! This style is effortlessly chic and, although we had major Party Season connotations attached to satin, the lightweight fabric is ideal for summer occasions too! This fabric often tends to skim over the hips in a subtle way and really follows the natural shape of the body to enhance the curves!
