Drop-waist dress

So, your midsection isn’t exactly six-pack-perfect. So what? Jazz up your wardrobe this summer with the ’20s-inspired drop-waist dress that slims by elongating the torso rather than clinging to every curve.

Addison dress, Kate Spade heels, and Chanel Sunglasses available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Plaza Frontenac, 314.567.9200. Bangles available at Ivy Hill, Central West End, 314.367.7004.

The Demi-Length Skirt

Although universally flattering (with a hemline that ends at the slimmest part of the leg), a pencil skirt cut at the knee or just below is best on long and lean bods—or for the girl who loves to flaunt her sexy curves.

Robert Rodriguez skirt, Vince tank, Stuart Weitzman heels, Gucci handbag and Michele watch available at Neiman Marcus, Plaza Frontenac, 314.567.9811.

The Printed Maxi

Hourglass shapes will love the balancing power of the of-the-moment maxi. Score a strapless or v-neck style to draw eyes up, then cinch the waist to enhance its slimming effect.

Joie dress, Splendid sandals and Angela & William hat available at Cha, Ladue, 314.993.8080. Zambos & Siega necklace available at Ivy Hill, Central West End, 314.367.7004.
