You know those items you think look terrible on yourself? Culottes, chunky turtlenecks, cropped flares all quickly come to mind. But for me, this has always been drop-waist dresses. They usually overwhelm my petite frame making me resemble a stump. I've tried them on consistently over the years hoping I would find one that worked, and finally I did. I purchased this dress right before our trip to New York, and I have already worn it a handful of times. The drop-waist hits a few inches below my hips making it an exaggerated style and more flattering. The long sleeves and ruffled bottom also give this dress a ladylike style which I played up with ballet flats. If you're looking for a drop-waist dress and have never been able to find one that flattered your silhouette give this one a try. You won't be disappointed.
