How to find the perfect draped dress
Draping is a new trend both on and off the runway. See how celebrities are wearing it and how you can find the perfect draped dress.
Draping is the perfect style to hide those imperfections you worry about. When wearing a draped dress, you must be careful not to look frumpy -- so follow these three tips to pull off the look in style.
get the right fit
"Fit" might sound out of place when we're talking about draping, but it's key. A dress in a size too big will look baggy, and you'll look shapeless. Be sure the dress fits you snugly in all the right places before purchasing.
Accent the right parts
A great draped dress that highlights the smallest part of your body will make you look thinner instantly. For example, a cinched waist shows off curves while the drapes do all the hiding on hips and thighs.
Arguably, the biggest plus about a draped dress is that many come in silk jersey -- which is amazing comfortable and forgiving. Silk jersey moves and stretches with you while still looking elegant.
