The Most Flattering Dress Trend of the Summer

If there’s one rule to keep in mind when dressing any body type, it’s to highlight the waist. Emphasising the smallest part of your midsection creates the illusion of the desirable hourglass figure. Beyoncé-level body? Yes, please.

Lucky for us and our Queen Bey aspirations, it just so happens that one of the summer’s biggest dress trends is perfect for featuring the waist. The tie-waist dress is easy to toss on, it’s incredibly flattering, and it plays with the perennially cool style trick of tying a shirt around your the waist.
