Have you been avoiding tight dresses? If you feel like you can’t wear a bodycon dress because your waist isn’t defined enough, Giedre is here to show you how to wear a tight dress and make it flattering for your body shape. Check out these clever and effective ways to style a tight dress and define your waist.
Accentuate Your Waist With These Effective Ways to Style a Tight Dress
Add a sash belt
The first thing Giedre does is add a long necklace to her look. She knows that this helps to elongate the upper part of her body.
To get a better waist definition, Giedre adds this gorgeous sash belt to her dress. This helps to create a more accentuated waist. Wearing a belt with a bit of flair definitely creates a slimmer waist effect. It is clear that this style tip is a super effective way to help define the waist and allow you to rock a bodycon dress. Giedre paired this look with boots which totally complete this stunning outfit.
This strategically placed scarf is the perfect way to help divide your midsection.
Giedre cleverly uses accessories to draw the eye away from her midsection. Wearing a scarf or a hat is the perfect way to take this styling tip on board.
Add a longline gilet
If you still don’t feel 100% comfortable, Giedre suggests wearing a longline gilet over your dress. This is a great way to add to your outfit when you feel like something is missing. This extra layer is another style opportunity to draw attention away from your belly.
Add an oversized blazer
Another fabulous styling tip is adding an oversized blazer to your outfit. Giedre shows us that when her shoulders look a little bigger, her waist appears smaller and more defined. A longer blazer definitely makes the hips and bottom half of the body look smaller as well.
Cinching in her waist gives Giedre a totally put together outfit. She adds a pop of color with her bag to take this look to the next level.
Use asymmetric lines
In this look, Giedre uses asymmetric lines that cause the eye to travel diagonally, creating a flattering effect. She, once again, cinches in her waist with a belt to create her desired waist definition. By tying her hair up and wearing glasses that frame her face, Giedre succeeds in drawing attention to the upper part of her body.
Layer with a shirt dress
There are so many ways to style a shirt dress and this is one of Giedre’s favorites! Wearing a shirt dress over a tight dress is super effective! The long vertical lines created by side panels and, of course, accessorizing with a long necklace is so flattering to Giedre’s body proportions.
Add a cropped cardigan
Giedre’s next styling tip is just amazing! Adding a cropped cardigan over a tight dress adds additional volume making the lower part of the body appear smaller than it is. You can see that Giedre’s embellished headband creates a focal point around her face, drawing the eye upward.
All of these looks are just amazing! Which styling tip are you going to try first? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
