Here’s an assortment of both casual and dressy frocks, some of which were recently winners on my clients. It’s great to see more sleeved dresses in stores. Some of the styles are available in petite and plus, so do check for those sizes too.
- Vince Camuto Stripe Asymmetrical Hem Maxi Dress: Bold, comfy, modern and arty. The asymmetrical hemline adds lots of interest. Good in motion.
- Cynthia Steffe 'Maya' Tie Waist Fit & Flare Shirtdress: Excellent on an hourglass or pear shape. The border on the hem is unique and adds a flirty touch. It's quite flared and not a streamlined shirt dress.
- ASTR Knotted Body-Con Dress: Sleek, fashionable and forgiving on the hip and thigh area because it does not cling. Alluring coverage.
- T Tahari Floral Print Scuba Sheath Dress (Regular & Petite): Fab scuba fabric in a brilliant Retro pattern. Stretches over curves without clinging to the contours of your body. The petite version is very short.
- Karen Kane Ruched Faux Wrap Dress: Elegant, work-appropriate, and well suited to a curvy body. Runs big.
- Rebecca Taylor 'Leopard Fever' Silk Wrap Dress: A little '70s inspiration in a soft knitted high-low style. Great on a larger bust and strong shoulder line. Beautiful on curvier body types. Ample length for tall gals. Breezy.
- Taylor Dresses Floral V-Neck Fit & Flare Dress: A little low in front, so best if you can fill out the bust area. Good on a curvy hourglass or pear shape.
- Kate Spade New York 'demi' scallop shift dress: Fabulous on petite apples and inverted triangles. It's short. Might run a little tight under the arms.
- Diane von Furstenberg 'New Jean 2' Print Silk Jersey Wrap Dress: A magnificent pattern. Fresh, bold and graphic. Good on a curvy hourglass or inverted triangle with a shorter neck and larger bust. Works surprisingly well on petites.
- FELICITY & COCO High/Low Hem Jersey Tank Dress (Nordstrom Exclusive): A very casual and breezy Summer dress available in many colours. Machine washable. Read the gushing reviews.
- Maggy London Print Scuba Midi Dress (Regular & Petite): A sleek sheath that works well on a tall rectangular figure.
- Rebecca Taylor 'Leo Fever' Print Silk Shirtdress: A lightweight shirt dress that looks as fab over white skinnies. Nice '70s touch with the drawstring.
- Ellen Tracy Print Faux Wrap Jersey Dress: Comfy and traditionally flattering on either an hourglass or rectangular body type.
- T Tahari Floral Print Matte Jersey Shift Dress (Plus Size): A fairly tailored dress in a jersey fabric that does not cling. Good length, good on pear shape body types, and best on a smaller bust.
- Nic + Zoe Floral Print Faux Wrap Dress: A casual fit-and-flare frock that's best suited to a curvy figure. Good on a pear shape. Unusual pattern.
