These days, it seems to be the more flesh you have on show (no matter how wobbly) the more fashionable you are. The days of leaving something to the imagination are dead and gone, and everything must be on show. What if you prefer looking classy and elegant when you go out of an evening, but you still want to look feminine and show those curves? There are better ways to do it than bursting out of tight, tiny dresses.
Long sleeved dresses may bring your grandmother to mind, but they don't have to make you look or feel old. Instead, they can make you feel sensual, feminine and alluring. Nobody's saying you have to be covered from neck to toe, but a hint of curve and a whisper of lace will turn heads for the right reasons.
Try a figure hugging silky number for that dinner party. Three quarter length sleeves will draw attention to bracelets and a scoop neck will show your assets without you fearing that they'll make an unwanted appearance. If the neckline is low, make sure the hemline is too. It doesn't need to be sweeping the floor, just above or just below the knee is flattering and if you wear with long boots with killer heels, you'll be able to show those curves and keep warm too.
If your legs are great, you may not want to cover up too much, so a mini dress will make the most of fabulous pins. However, keep the neckline high as well and what about bell sleeves? Very feminine, very elegant and you won't show too much skin and will keep that sense of mystery that probably everyone else around will have given up. Try lace sleeves to heighten it even more.
For a more casual look, knitted dresses are always great and really feminine. You can find a great range of these types of dresses online at various retailers such as Matalan. Browse online and you can find some fabulous dresses at great value prices!
