Dress Silhouette Guide

Ever find yourself browsing for dresses with no idea where to start? From colors and patterns to different fabrics, there are endless ways to customize your look. Finding the silhouette you want is an easy first step to creating a look you love. If you’re not sure how to describe what you’re looking for, or need a refresher on basic silhouettes, you’ve come to the right place. Read on for our guide to classic and contemporary dress silhouettes so you can shop smart and in style. Mermaid This alluring and elegant style is perfect for those who want to accentuate their curves. With a fitted, elongated bodice and flared skirt, it creates a dramatic hourglass shape with some serious va-va-voom reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour. Fit-and-Flare For a more high-contrast and retro-inspired look, try a fit-and-flare silhouette. This style follows its namesake, with a fitted upper bodice and a sharply angled flare into a full skirt. Give this style a contemporary update with modern details like embellishments or sheer paneling, or keep the classic and flirty ‘50s feel with a sweetheart neckline. A-Line This ultra-flattering cut is favorite for all styles and all body types because of its graceful skirt and fitted bodice. A-line skirts gradually flare into a soft A-shape while the bodice highlights your narrowest point. Sheath If you love a sleek, contemporary look, sheath dresses might be your new favorite silhouette. This clean and simple cut follows the natural shape of your body, and can be either fitted close to skin or hang off the body for an airier, ‘60s mod-inspired feel. The straight lines of this silhouette are lengthening and ultra-flattering, especially when paired with a high heel. High-Low High-low dresses offer a more contemporary silhouette and are the perfect way to get the best of both mini and maxi dress styles. The skirt of this silhouette has an asymmetrical hemline, with the front being short and the back having a longer length. High-low styles can range from a drastic and dramatic length difference to only a slight and subtle contrast for a bit of visual interest, thus making this silhouette a highly customizable option for any look or occasion. Bodycon Derived from “body conscious,” this style is form-fitting and traces all of your curves for a look that’s sexy and sleek. Dresses in this style are often made of a tight, stretchy material, and can sometimes be conflated with bandage dresses, which are made of horizontal bands of material pieced together for an even more next-to-skin fit. With such a tight fit, you’re most likely to find these dresses in shorter hemline lengths from mini to midi. This style is revealing and dramatic, perfect for those looking to make a bold statement. Which silhouette is your favorite? From sultry mermaid dresses to sleek sheaths, there’s no wrong answer. Pick a style that flaunts your favorite assets or try out a look that fits your unique personal taste – or just mix it up depending on your mood that day! Life’s too short to only wear one silhouette, and as long as you feel confident in a style you love, you’ll rock it with ease.

Top 5 Festival Hairstyles 

Festival season is in full-swing, which means it’s time for some amazing shows, celebrity sightings, and our favorite – festival fashion. But the perfect festival outfit is nothing without a complementary hairstyle. Get creative with your look and flaunt one of this year’s trending styles for a festival getup no one will forget. We’ve rounded up our favorite hair looks so that you can find some inspiration for this year’s circuit. Try one or rock them all – no matter what, you’ll be rocking an on-trend and Instagram-ready look that’s versatile enough to go from the dancefloor to the campground in style. Braids Braids are a bohemian staple, but there are endless ways to style them. Prefer to keep your hair down? Weave a few asymmetrical mini braids into tousled hair for a look that’s eclectic and effortless, à la Grace Elizabeth’s Tommy Hilfiger look. For a stronger statement, ditch the flower crown and opt for classic Swedish crown braids. This romantic updo will help you stay cool in the summer heat while keeping your look flawlessly styled for days on end – perfect for camping out at multi-day events. Been there, done that with most braided styles? Take it up a notch with a unique placement, like Kate Bosworth’s center-part braid from Coachella. A nontraditional plait functions as a unique accessory – and will definitely garner a ton of compliments RG @bridgetbragerhair braided center part ? A post shared by Kate Bosworth (@katebosworth) on Apr 12, 2015 at 10:58am PDT Pigtails Combine the ease of a ponytail with a playful, quirky look by styling your hair in high pigtails. This versatile style is easy to make your own, whether you add a colorful accent with ‘80s-style scrunchies or go for a sleek, modern update like Cardi B’s Coachella look. Blunt & Bright Take your look from daytime to Day-Glo with neon wigs in blunt, cropped styles. A razor-sharp cut takes a bright hue from bold to unforgettable, and this style has been popping up everywhere from Instagram to Fashion Week. Plus, a wig means no need to style your hair – just put it on and hit the festival grounds. Whether you’re loving Gigi Hadid’s bob-with-bangs look from Jeremy Scott’s NYFW show or Kylie Jenner’s highlighter-yellow, lived-in crop, this style is a daring take on hair color that’s totally on-trend. Pastels On the other side of the hair dye spectrum are soft, ethereal pastels. This look can be an easy first foray into colorful hair – add a few scattered strands of soft, delicate color for a dreamy, boho-inspired style like Sophie Turner, or take it to a bolder level with all-over color. Not sure if you want to keep this fairytale look beyond festival season? Use temporary hair dye to get the unicorn hair you’re dreaming of without any long-term commitment. Space Buns As the quirky cousin to pigtails, space buns add a zany, nostalgic feel to your festival look, but with a twist of retro-futurism that definitely makes a statement. Whether you go for a laid-back half-up, half-down look or a clean, sleek finish, this trend is ultra-flattering and not going anywhere. Not sure how to accessorize? Top your look off with metallic eyeshadow and a choker for a perfect finishing touch.
