Trend Alert: Bodycon Dresses
Posted by Jintao Du on
The bodycon is back, and we’re not complaining. So many different trends come and go, and this year, we’ve seen the bodycon dress creep its way back onto the stage. From slinky fabrications that hug the body perfectly to tailored linen dresses, form-fitting pieces are all the rage and we’re here to dish our favourite styles of the season.
We’ve raved about the knit trend plenty of times. From pants to crops to skirts, dresses definitely take the gold medal when it comes to the knitted realm. So comfortable and functional, bodycon knit dresses radiate a more classy ambience. Something like this sleeveless knit bodycon mini dress is so versatile. Whether you sport the dress at work with some penny loafers or to drinks with some statement orange strappy heels, its classic silhouette and neutral shade makes it a capsule collection must-have.
The slinky jersey fabrication has also been a hit this season. We’re guessing you knew that already though. All over our Insta feeds, the ruched shirt dresses have been making their appearances. Whether it’s a cocktail event, wedding or a girlfriend’s birthday, something like the slinky ruched shirt mini dress is perfect. The detailing makes it super flattering on any body shape. Style it with nude strappy heels and you have yourself a sleek outfit.
It’s all in the details. Unique elements such as tie-back details that reveal a backless moment, as well as sultry side slits that balance a more modest length, speak volumes. This sleeveless tie back knit bodycon dress is one of our favourites this season, not only for its gorgeous green pastel shade but because of those subtle details. Style it with nude heels and statement hoop earrings for a going-out look.
Can we ever get enough of halter necks? Short answer: no! Such a flattering neckline, the retro-inspired design is everywhere this season. So, for your next LBD purchase, look no further than the knit halter mini dress. In a body-hugging silhouette that flatters, it also has a tie back detail for a spicy touch. Style a mini dress with black heels and a diamante clutch for a more luxe vibe.
Another trend we’re seeing? Bold colours. It’s all about making a statement this season and quite honestly, we don’t mind having all eyes on us. This sleeveless front split bodycon mini dress does just the trick. In bright hot pink, you don’t even need to accessorise too much. Speaking for itself, the dress features a sultry side split and flattering strapless neckline. Pair with a mellow yellow pair of heels for a sweet summer look.
