Holding it Together

Of all the hot trends this season, one of my favorites is the bustier style top! Not only do they add a dressy touch to an outfit, they are also great in helping to create a long, lean silhouette. Much like a corset, the bustier top helps to hold everything in, creating the illusion of a tiny waist. Adding a feminine touch, the bustier style has also transitioned over to dresses. Looking for a more daytime casual dress? Be on the hunt for a bustier style dress with the signature fitted top and fuller skirt to add a flirty and easy breezy feel to the outfit. For a more evening look, choose a body-con dress with a fitted silhouette throughout.
