Trapeze Dress and Tights — Speedy Spotlight

Speedy Fashion Spotlight: The loose trapeze dress and dark tight combo may seem like it only works on a rare few (the insanely thin or insanely tall), but model-esque proportions are not needed to pull this look off right…

a) Pick a structured shift dress that doesn’t cling to the body. The trick is wearing a trapeze shape that conceals your widest area, while highlighting the smallest.

 b) Go for a daring color, small print pattern or interesting texture (to take this look from middle-school-girl to high fashion). Look for fun accents like an interesting neckline, large flower or try adding a broach yourself.

 c) Choose tights that are sheer and dark in color. Whether navy, grey, brown, maroon or simple black, it’s alright to play with color while still flattering the legs in a deep shade.

d) Add subtle accessories to your structured dress and dark tights. Try close-toe heels that match (or almost match) your tights to create the illusion of extremely long, lean legs, and add some delicate earrings or stacked bracelets.

BUY IT: Try a luxe looking dress like Simply Vera Wang’s Taffeta Dress, or (for the more budgeted mothers) the affordable Mossimo Shirred Sleeveless Dress from Target (which will look extra flattering if worn with a slim, dark top underneath to elongate the arms).

ADMIRE IT: She may be long and lean, but Gwyneth Paltrow’s classic combo could flatter any momma. Keep it fun and youthful like Gwyneth with dynamic colors, texture and interesting heels.
