Contrast Colour Block Dresses

Dresses with black lines and contrasting colours at the waist produce a shapely figure and work well for all sizes. Colour block dresses create shape on a slim body and are flattering on a curvy body too. Petite dresses with panels or vertical lines can also give the appearance of height on a smaller frame. Buying plus size outfits with dark panels and cut-outs at the side make the contour of the body appear much slimmer. A splash of colour also has a part to play in the art of illusion and can enhance the silhouette in the most flattering of ways.

New styles include black and white contrast dresses, multicoloured stripes, bodycon pencil dresses and print colour block dresses. Online brands and high street stores such as Karen Millen, Boden, Phase Eight, Asos, Damsel in a Dress, Coast, L.K. Bennett, Chesca, Ted Baker and Gina Bacconi boast a vibrant collection of colourblock designs.

Slimming Figure Shaping Dresses

Visual trickery dressing is not just for the red carpet and celebrities. The new fashion frenzy can be seen in the new season dress collection at department stores such as John Lewis and House of Fraser. So add your own drama to your wardrobe with a bodycon slim fit bandage dress to showcase your curves. Here you will find figure-hugging dresses combined with a modern block pattern perfect for effortless day & evening dressing.

Panelled Bodycon Dresses

The secret behind creating an instantly slimmer silhouette is a clever design. New colour block dresses are embracing the shaper-dress trend that accentuates the figure. Savvy celebs know how to dress to impress and panelled bodycon are real show stoppers. Reiss dresses are both figure flattering and on trend especially their latest bandage styles.

Catwalk inspired geometric prints are a winner too and work well with colour block pieces. Update your wardrobe and take your pick from the latest graphic stripes, cube and chevron prints and team with bold splashes of colour.

Colour Block Tops and Jackets

Jackets, cardigans, blouses and tops can play their part too in the world of illusion. Styles include colour blocking, darts and gathers for shaping, seam detail that nip in at the waist and monochrome prints. Wear over black trousers or pencil slim skirt for an elegant tailored 1940‘s look. Smart two-piece outfits look good for work or play.
