Summer Dress Silhouette Style Guide

I don't know about you but I live in dresses during the summer, there's something about a breezy dress that makes me feel great -- feminine and flirty but also comfortable and cool. 

I love the versatility in the style options that us ladies have and tend to opt for a high waist and a shift dress styles mainly because of the movement they allow. 

We have created a summer dress style guide for women's dress styles to help you find your perfect style and fit.

The High Waist Dress

A high waist dress is a dress that defines the silhouette of a garment sitting higher up between under the bust and the waist. It applies to garments worn on the bottom half of the body such as trousers or skirts. It may sometimes describe the formation of the waist line on dresses though.

The Drop Waist Dress

A drop waist dress is a dress with the waist of the dress dropped lower, falling close to the top of the hips. By doing this it creates an illusion of a torso being lengthened. This style was largely worn during the 1920s.
