Welcome to the ’50s

The silhouette is all Dior’s New Look fit and flare, with nipped waists and full skirts. Wear it mid-thigh for a more daring look, or to the knee for a more romantic feel.

welcome to the 50sStylist tip: If you are an A or pear-shape, this style’s great “because it focuses on the upper half, the smaller part of the body,” says Soldera.

A little less Mad Men, a lot more babydoll, and altogether pretty, the beaded bodice and bow of this aqua dress draws the eye up and is great for camouflaging bigger hips. Available at Cavery, $149, Erin Mills Town Centre.
