The fabulously slinky bodycon dress is a fashion icon, and should be in every closet. Offering a flattering fit that traces curves, without strapping them in or hugging like a glove, it creates a gloriously elegant silhouette. Often created from a lighter fabric than the bandage dress, of Kim Kardashian West fame, some styles, however, use a thicker, more elasticated material.
If you’re a little on the plus side, a bodycon dress may not be your best friend, but hey, who are we to say what you should and shouldn’t wear – if you want to wear one, go right ahead, girlfriend!
Often hemmed to just above knee length, they look great with heels, and a well-tailored pea coat, or a cute little cropped cardigan for a night on the town. Over plush velvet leggings, with big boots and a leather biker jacket, a slinky bodycon gives an edgy, stand-out style, perfect for clubbing. Snuggle inside a beautifully luxurious faux fur on a colder day for a cute, huggable look, or go for bare-foot summer cool on the beach – who says bodycon is just for parties? It’s the dress that just keeps giving across any season.
