We have big plans for the summer, and they include stepping out in show-stopping looks on the regular. After being cooped up for so long, our stylish selves deserve time in the spotlight! We’re on the hunt for new dresses to wear, and we’re specifically looking for flattering pieces that are slimming and make Us feel supremely confident.
If you’re on a similar mission, get pumped — we broke down our top picks into three slimming categories: Ruched dresses, flare dresses and wrap dresses. Each of these styles offer different benefits, so whether you want something that’s more skintight or are in the market for a flowy, boho feel, there’s bound to be a frock that’s perfect for you!
