The right dress can also help minimise some of the changes we may have experienced in our figures in our 50s! This dress I have chosen for Day 5 of the challenge is ideal for creating a balanced silhouette for those with narrow shoulders, wider hips and thicker middles. The darker, denser pattern on the lower half of the body helps to create the illusion of slimmer hips – the shoulder pads add width to the upper half to balance, while the swirling pattern around the middle creates the illusion of a smaller waist . The three quarter length sleeves are flattering.
Because the dress is quite busy – especially with the chiffon tie, accessories should be discreet. I would wear this with red kitten heels and a black clutch bag.
Perfect dress for pear shapes wanting to create an hourglass silhouette!
This Apinage Printed Jersey Dress is available from Gray and Osbourn and costs £139
