Striped Trapeze Dress

March 14, 2016

I generally shy away from anything A line, also called a trapeze or swing dress.  I know people say its a flattering cut and "hides" what every you want hidden, but I have never been a fan of the trapeze style.  I think it stems from the stigma of maternity outfits and styles when I was pregnant many moons ago.  Styles for pregnancies now sure have changes.  I spotted this striped dress on my last trip through Target and decided to give it a try.  Don't ask me why other than I think the stripes grabbed me and I was sucked in!!  I actually loved it and want to go back and pick up a few of the solid dresses too.  That's not to say that all A line cuts, or a trapeze dress are created equal.  I know the length of the dress plays an important part in the flare of the dress.  

Style Tip: Opt for a small horizontal stripe to compliment your figure.  If the stripes are wide a vertical  direction will be equally flattering. 

I am on the hunt for a pink dress now.  Not a soft pale pink and not a neon, more like a hot pink.  I will let you know if I have any luck finding one. What is something you are looking to add to your wardrobe this spring?
