The holidays are fast approaching! Let’s jump right in.
This One-Shoulder Peplum Dress is all about giving shape… and attitude. It cinches in at the waist with a leather belt and white peplum flares out at the hip. It will give you a more hourglass shape. The pencil skirt keeps it classic and chic for a New Year’s party.

I love this Presidio Poise Dress for an hourglass. You have very defined curves so you can wear this dress without worrying about your breasts disappearing into your stomach. It’s a perfect cut with a flattering waist and cap sleeves. It would be easy to dress up for NYE with the right shoes. You could even replace the belt for a pop of shine or color.

A flared skirt or a line across the hips is completely necessary for a Column. This Jersey & Taffeta Dress will compliment your shape perfectly. All the attention is pulled straight down to the flared skirt with darling rosettes. It’s a fabulously effortless dress that you will look wonderful in!

This stunning Mixed-Media Dress has all the right details to compliment your shape. The pretty neckline and shirred bust of this dress will do great things to separate your bust from your tummy. The black horizontal ruching across the stomach will minimize any bulge. The velvet scroll flocking on the flared skirt will really balance you out.

The straight line of the skirt of this Beaded Sheath Dress minimizes the hips while the squared shoulders balance them out. There isn’t much else to say about this elegant dress.

Stay away from flared skirts, unless it’s at the knee and you have a top that accentuates the bust or shoulders to balance out the flare.
I hope this makes New Year’s Dress shopping easier for you. I’ll be posting coats to match your dresses later in the week. Have a great Thanksgiving!
