Bodycon Silhouette at Cushnie et Ochs, Herve Leger, and Yigal Azrouel.
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!
