Hey guys, I hope you’re well! I’m a little delayed with publishing this post because of how hectic the week has been.
This post is sponsored by oncenout.com; Africa’s first online consignment marketplace that allows fashionistas to sell, buy and donate the fashion items they once loved, anonymously.
So functional, so versatile! An LWD (little white dress) is a must-have item this season. When i received this curve hugging, tight fitting body-con dress from oncenout.com the first thought that came to mind was “alternative bridal shower dress”. Its sassy and sweet, especially with it’s form fitting nature and back cut detail; which is definitely a great option for a wedding rehearsal or a bridal shower.
The most important rule to wearing anything is to be comfortable and happy in it. Most women are intimidated by body con dresses, especially those who do not have a defined waist and hourglass body shape. They worry about showcasing their body in such a curve revealing form because truth be told; your body is not hidden.
The body con dress, which comes from a contraction of the phrase body conscious, shouldn’t leave you feeling self-conscious about your body, it should rather be a bold statement of self-esteem and body confidence. Wearing a body con dress takes courage and confidence. It is a show of self love and body acceptance.
If you feel pretty in it and you feel good, that will radiate through and make your outfit look even more appealing. It’s more about how you feel about yourself and less about the outfit
When it comes to accessories keep it minimal, your dress is making a bold statement, so your accessories can be kept simple. And the accessories must always go with the dress. Don’t go for anything too absurd, the accessory is just there to subtly enhance the dress, not to overpower it.
With this outfit I chose to let the dress be in the spotlight, with nothing much to take attention away from it except the bracelet. For a clean theme/ look I added my blue louboutins and bag from desire shoes and more. So to get it right every time, keep it simple.
And remember, it takes a confident woman to successfully rock this look.
Have you braved the body-con trend yet? If so, how did you wear it? If you haven’t tried it yet, have I inspired you enough to go get your own? Let everyone know what you think — leave a comment!
Thanks for reading, please come again
Have a blessed day!
