If you are looking for a dress that is comfortable, breathable, and effortless for the season. Then a smocked dress is the item for you! Smock dresses are body-hugging but retain their shape and are typically made with a looser-style skirt, so they are flattering for us pear-shaped gals. I love tops and dresses that hug my chest area. Because I have a smaller chest, when you have a more snug fit, it helps to enhance the curves you already have. Smocked busts enable movement and stretch–no matter your bust size. One of my favourite outfits from last summer was this matching top and skirt set. The smocked top fit perfectly and was really flattering. The loose fit of the skirt really complimented the top and made the outfit look easy and effortless.
The best feature to accentuate on any woman is her waste. The fact that most smocked dresses flare at the waist means that they are able to flatter almost every body type! Huge score! I love finding cute pieces that will work for so many woman with different body types. You can wear your smocked dresses with flats and a cardigan in the spring time and slip on your cute sandals and straw hat when you’re heading to the pool this summer. You can even wear your smocked dress for formal occasions with some heels or for a casual park outing with white sneakers.
