To pull off a bodycon dress, you must be optimistic about your body and not self-conscious about it. Bodycon dresses are form-fitting garments that cling to every curve of your body. As a result, you must be extremely self-assured and at ease with displaying your body and its curves. This is why many women are hesitant to wear bodycon dresses.
Bodycon outfits are a Stlylish addition to your wardrobe
There is a widespread belief that wearing a bodycon dress only emphasises one’s flaws. This is only true when the person who wears it hasn’t perfected the skill of giving the illusion of flawlessness. Bodycon outfits are a very convenient and stylish addition to your wardrobe if you know how to wear them. Because you’re already flaunting your figure with a form-fitting dress, showing skin on top of that may look tacky. Choose long-sleeved or calf-length dresses. The overall appearance should be classy.
Investing in a bodycon is one of the most common suggestions, but isn’t the whole point of this being body positive? But, if that’s good, go ahead and get a shapewear because there’s no shame in taking a little assistance to look and feel better.
Select a thick, comfortable fabric
Avoid thin, flimsy materials such as jerseys when shopping for a bodycon dress because they will not only cling to your body but will also accentuate and exaggerate problem areas. Choose a dress made of a thicker material that will not accentuate alleged problem areas. Ribbed and panelled details add fatality to the outfit and give it a tidier, more structured appearance. Thick fabric is your best bet for a flattering look!
It isn’t about exposing too much skin
If you enjoy seeing your skin, go ahead and do it. However, instead of always wearing a very provocative gown, try to keep it tasteful. Because you’re already flaunting your figure with a form-fitting dress, showing skin on top of that may look tacky. Choose long-sleeved or calf-length dresses instead. The overall appearance should be sophisticated.
Put on some heels
A bodycon dress is the definition of style, and wearing it with flats will leave a lot to the imagination. Some fashionistas consider it a heinous crime! Pair it with heels to elongate your frame and make your silhouette appear slimmer. Choose what is most comfortable for you: wedges, pumps, or even stilettos are all options. This extra height will come handy and will undoubtedly boost your confidence. Low wedges and supportive platforms are also viable options.
Include some layers
By adding layers, you can make a bodycon dress more wearable! If your form-fitting dress makes you feel self-conscious, this is a lifesaver. Because they’re so trendy right now, you can wear a loose cardigan or a flowy cape. You can also add a well-cut blazer to your ensemble for a more polished edge and to make it office-appropriate. If you want to be a little more covered up while still showing off your body, throw on a longline cardigan, blazer, or sleeveless vest. A cropped denim or leather jacket is another cover-up option that will instantly add an edge to your look while revealing your curves.
Select the colours with care
While there are numerous ways to style a bodycon dress, keep in mind that the colour you choose has a significant impact on how it looks. Choose a dark colour to boost your confidence because we all know they are more flattering. You can’t really go wrong with classic black – it’s sexy and can help hide flaws. So get yourself an LBB – little black bodycon.
If you want to try on a bodycon dress but are concerned about certain areas of your body standing out, you can get one in contrasting colours. The great thing about purchasing such a bodycon is that it will deflect attention away from areas where you are uncomfortable. Do you want to know how? For example, if you get bodycon with darker tones on the sides, it will end up making your waist appear smaller without drawing attention to bulges!
Don’t overdo it on the accessories, but do them well
The key to a successful outfit is accessorising a bodycon dress correctly. Bodycon dresses are traditionally worn as evening wear, with elegant or glamorous accessories. Combining shorter bodycon dresses with other garments or accessories to create a suitable everyday outfit without looking out of place is becoming increasingly popular.
To achieve a daring but stunning look, you should carefully select your accessories. Because many bodycon dresses have low cut, plunging necklines or end up leaving the shoulders bare, a huge, long necklace made of beads or a chain with a sizable metalwork pendant is a great option, especially for a block-coloured dress. It serves as a focal point for the outfit. Long, dangly earrings with a splash of glitter or delicate, dangly earrings are appropriate for women wearing dresses with bare shoulders and swept-back hair.
Nothing beats a lady who is at ease and confident in herself. So, go, girl!
