Boyish: Go Seriously Girly
Kristen Stewart defied her tomboyish figure—and style—in a dress that is girly to the max. The ornate bow of the asymmetrical lace frock gave the illusion of a strong shoulder and the cummerbund-like belt created curves on her straight and narrow frame.
Embellish a Little Or a Lot
Take note from Emma Stone and keep the details the same color as the fabric to avoid festive overload. Look for a frock with a 3-D effect to stand out in the crowd of accoutrements.
Fuller Figured: Try Anything-but-Shy Silhouettes
Reaching for a sack dress might be a natural reflex, but a loose shape will only add pounds. Enhance your figure in a form-shaping sheath dress or a forgiving wrap dress. And black is not your only choice hue this season: Embrace navy, gunmetal gray, and Bordeaux—all of which are rich and slimming. Reward your newfound bravery with a bold accessory a la Christina Hendricks.
White Feels Right
Take a cue from model Chanel Iman in Dolce & Gabbana and dress yourself in head-to-toe white this season. This includes, but is not limited to, a delicate white shift dress, white diamonds, white spiked pumps and white lingerie pretty enough to let peek through.
