My search was harder than I thought, because I had specific things in mind. For one thing, a lot of dresses end up being not modest enough for me in the cleavage area. So may have deep V-necks or wrap across the front and when you have curves like I do that means cleavage. I realize that is sexy and feminine and figure flattering but I have a personal conviction to avoid overly cleavage revealing styles, especially in church where I would certainly want to wear my dresses.
Sheath dresses are almost universally flattering and I have a number of them. I was looking for something with more of an A-line, but this one from Kohl's caught my eye. I'm head over heels for ruffles.
But seriously, I really wanted something I can really move around in, and a short sheath does not fit that bill. This one from Tommy Hilfiger looks a little more comfortable and I love the pink paisley pattern.
Can you say pink? Apparently I'm on a pink kick at the moment because this asymmetrical draped number caught my eye by Vera Wang for Kohl's. I'm not sure if I could pull it off or not, it looks pretty short, but I may head over to Kohl's and give it a shot.
The cut of dress I am really looking for is exactly this one from my very favorite retailer, Boden USA. This is called the Riviera dress and looks great for the kind of every day spring wear I'm thinking of.
So what kind of dresses do you like? Floral or solid? Short or maxi? Sheath or A-line?
