Trend of the Week: Volume Control

Inspiration:

Fashion boasts inherent freedom: the ability to express a feeling or a mood; to augment one’s reality with a specific colour or a silhouette. The current crop of voluminous dresses is no exception. Multi-tiered, empire line, tunic, kaftan or baby doll, there’s a style to cater to every taste. So, whirl and twirl; enjoy that Zoom dance party or add some whimsy while working from home.

STYLE NOTES:

• EMPIRE STRIKES BACK: Apple-shaped? Choose empire lines that flow from the bust down.

• DROP IT LOW: Dial down the frills by swapping a full multi-tiered frock for a kaftan or t-shirt silhouette with a drop hem.

• SIMPLY DOES IT: Balance volume by keeping accessories to a minimum. Opt for flat sandals or bright sneakers and let the dress do the talking.

• SHOULDER IT: Column-shaped? Try a sleek silhouette with defined puff sleeves.

• THAT’S A WRAP: Reign in an augmented silhouette with a belted style. Great for hourglass or pear shapes.
