With all the fall clothes hitting the stores in Soho this week, I have found myself thinking about fashion. Stay tuned as I am going to have a few posts about what to wear.
Boyish or Athletic Figure?
This dress is from the Reem Acra 2008 Fall Collection that I found on Brides.com. It would be a perfect fit for the athletic or boyish figure. The rouching along the sides will trim the waist and accentuate the bum. Beads on the bust will flatter a flat chest. The deep V neck leaves a perfect place to wear a necklace with a pendant (though I prefer the bare clavicle look) and the straps insure that you won’t be hiking up your strapless dress while dancing. In my book this is a win, win, win, WIN situation!
Another option that would also flatter this shape: Intermix, $495. Pretty good price for a wedding gown. Perfect answer for a semi casual celebration. These are actual flat stones that are sewn onto the dress as a design element. I have noticed a recent trend of natural elements like wood, shell, and natural beads/stones in fashion. This is one example. Perhaps it could be worn as the Rehearsal Dinner Dress, you are the Bride after all!
