Need a dress? Here are 3 styles of spring and summer dresses for women over 40 that are guaranteed to work for you.
The Sheath Dress
A sheath dress is class all the way. It’s a long, lean body skimming dress that encases your body, enhances your curves or creates them where there are none. This elegant style is typically sleeveless with strong waist definition and a back slit or pleats. It is unfussy and is a fabulous choice for work or anytime you are going to an important event and aren’t sure what to wear.
The Shift Dress
A shift dress is the kind of dress every woman wants in her closet because it is easy and comfortable. It’s sort of like wearing a long top. It hangs loose from the shoulders (sometimes has darts) and falls straight down to above the knee with no waist definition.
Shift dresses can be sleeveless, have short or long sleeves and usually have a high scoop or boatneck neckline. Since they are loose, they give off a casual, relaxed vibe and are excellent for covering up problem areas.
The Fit and Flare Dress
The fit and flare is one of the most popular silhouettes this spring and it’s no wonder. It has a fitted top with a very defined waist and a flared skirt. It can help balance a larger bust, define a waist and add curves. This style is very feminine and pretty.
