Elon­gate legs with an il­lu­sion dress

First For Women - - Style -

A clas­sic sheath is per­fect for a va­ri­ety of hol­i­day oc­ca­sions and never goes out of style, so we know we’ll get our money’s worth. But some styles end up mak­ing legs look shorter and stock­ier. The stun­ning so­lu­tion: a sheath with two-tone ver­ti­cal pan­els. “The neck-to-knee lin­ear pat­tern draws the eye up and down, elon­gat­ing the en­tire body, while the con­trast in col­ors op­ti­cally trims thighs down the mid­dle so they look half the size,” says celebrity stylist Ge­orge Bres­cia, au­thor of Change Your Clothes, Change Your Life.

“Plus, the com­bi­na­tion of light and dark pan­els vis­ually slen­der­izes the body and shows off fem­i­nine curves to boot.”

The re­sult? A stat­uesque sil­hou­ette— even if a night of dancing has us trad­ing our heels for bal­let flats!

FIRST pick: Tommy Hilfiger, $99
