Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Bodycon Silhouette

Style tip?  Fashion’s continuing obsession with skinny jeans is just the first step towards a bodycon (aka body conscious) silhouette.  Bodycon dresses were huge for Fall 2009, and they’re continuing to ride the trend wave in 2010.  This bodycon silhouette is epitomized in Herve Leger’s skintight dresses, pictured middle.  But you don’t have to go for that sheer, skintight look - which, frankly, is hard to pull off if you’re not shaped like a model.  We prefer dresses with knotted, ruched, or draped detailing (as at Cushnie et Ochs), as they’re a bit more forgiving.

What do you think?  How would you wear the bodycon silhouette?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    I don’t have a perfect “model” body, but I do love the bodycon silhouette as a counterpoint to the “oversized” trend. I like to balance the two– wear a bodycon dress with an oversized knit vest, or wear a bodycon top with some voluminous shorts.

    Love this trend. I love the look of the Yigal Azrouel dress, dresses that look like separates…even though they are hard to pull off with a long torso!

    I think that adjusted models are much better than tight. Nearby the body, which values the shapes, without pressing the curves. Something like to suggest, rather than display.
