Often, we dress to conceal a feature that we’re not so crazy about. Your thighs. Your hips. Your tummy. Today, we’re here to challenge that idea: instead, why not choose a style that highlights your favorite body part? Maybe it’s your toned back or shapely legs. No matter which dress you choose, the point is we’re celebrating what you love, not hiding what you don’t. Scroll below for the party dresses we chose, depending on what you’re showin’ off for your next formal event.
TBH, your arms are one of the easiest parts to show off, especially in the warmer months. So what spoke to us about this long evening dress? Aside from its smokin’ hot hue, the extra strap on the shoulders draws the eye right to where the arms meet the shoulders, making for a super flattering cut. Tip: when posing for pics, place your hands on hips to accentuate the muscles in your arms even more.
