S Robins Styling
Summers events are coming up and if you are looking for your dresses still then Avenue 32 is a great place to find all sorts of beautiful high end pieces.
I have featured this dress before in a previous blog, this is stunning. It is a great piece for most figure types. The colour is bright and out there but it is still classy enough for Ascot, weddings and other occasions i.e.. Henley Regatta etc. It would be easily adjustable for taking up the length and also bust. This dress loves anyone with hips or no waist or a waist as it gives the illusion and accentuates one that is already there.
Both A line fitted top and aline skirt shape. These 3 dresses are subtle yet beautiful. Length covering the knee, the one on the middle is a softer fabric so goes well with a curvier shape and the one on the left stiffer so squarer shapes like this, you can mix and match as there is texture on the purple one which makes it appear softer.
These dresses are great for a smaller bust, for anyone with wider shoulder extend the neckline to make it the dress for you. Again this creates the illusion of a waist and also draws the eye to the waistline.
Bold body cons, striking colours, stunning silhouettes. This is when the underwear comes into play, these styles work but shaping needs to happen for most women to smooth the shape underneath the dress.
The dress on the right with the puff sleeve is great for ladies with a wider shoulder, the bright pink will create more emphasis on the shoulders so great if you are hippy, great for anyone with a waist, show off your shape. You can be any size to wear these just work your shape.
These three beauties give something a little bit different. The burnt orange dress is great for giving a little more shape if you haven't got much of a waist or hips, it draws the eye to your collarbone and shoulders and your legs, the ruffle down the front adds volume and the a line shape also adds volume to your hips and legs.
The black dress draws the eye to the legs, the V neckline is great for a bigger bust and wider shoulders. Adding detail to the hem of the skirt shows off gorgeous legs.
The blue dress is creating a real focus on the bottom of your legs, the neckline is better for a smaller bust and smaller shoulders, there is an element of a mermaid tail to this dress, it is elegant without the colour being too bright but will get you noticed.
A great tip for these events, if you are tall your hat can be a different colour to your dress or pick out on, but if you are smaller try and wear a hat the same colour as your dress, this will give you height and create a more elegant silhouette.
