  1. Wrap Dress

Universally flattering for almost any body type, the wrap dress has an easy, breezy wrap element that looks feminine and chic. You can wear it to the office, on errands, on a date, or anywhere else as long as you style them right. If you want to make a sexy statement on your street style, opt for a shorter style of wrap dresses in a chic print that you can wear with your trendy shoes. The wrap dress is perfect for those who want to control the tightness of their waistline by adjusting it throughout the day, while the wrap bodice offers a flattering balance between bottom and torso, therefore, creating an hourglass silhouette.

  1. Fit-and-Flare Dress

Feminine and figure-flattering, fit-and-flare dress cinches in at the waist before flaring into a knee-length, twirl-worthy circle skirt. Luckily this dress does all the work for you, and you don’t even have to think about styling your outfit just throw it on and go. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, just pick a bright color like neon yellow that can make a bold statement for you. This style is perfect for any occasion, whether you’re dressing it up for a Friday night date or down for brunch with your friends.

  1. Bodycon Dress

Bodycon or form-fitting dress highlights your body curves, so the key is picking the flattering length and fabric of the dress. A too-short or too-long bodycon dress will cut off the line of your leg in an unnatural spot. On the other hand, when the pencil dress hits right at your knee, the natural line between your calf and thigh is highlighted. Just pick sturdy, quality fabrics that will keep the dress in place and will smooth out your silhouette like knits and lace.

  1. Shift Dress

If you lack curves yet with a muffin top, resort to a shift dress that will smoothen out your lines. If you wish to look taller, go for a maxi length that creates a long vertical line, drawing the attention away from your flaws effortlessly while looking feminine and chic.

  1. A-line or Tent Dress

If you’re pear shaped, tent or A-line dress is perfect for you, especially if you’re a fan of free-flowing skirts. Like fashion blogger Jenny Bernheim, highlight your slim waist without wearing a belt by topping your dress with a structured sailor blazer that will create a vertical line on your mid-section. Indeed, dresses are great for making you look feminine and chic without too much effort.
