Showing women how to dress for their body type is one of my personal stylist superpowers. There are three dresses that deliver for any body shape. These little black dress styles don’t just look good on the hanger, they have design details that help you get the most flattering fit. If you know you’re “shift”, you can wear these magic little black dresses now and later. If you’ve got your basic black dress arsenal covered skip to THIS POST to see the most flattering little white dresses of 2023 and how to style them.
1 | Slip Dress for Your Body Type
All slip dresses are not created equal. Here, you get what you pay for. The most flattering styles are usually cut on the bias and made of premium fabrics like satin.

The Best Slip Dress
This Vince slip dress has fit every woman I’ve ever seen it on. It’s cut on the bias so it doesn’t cling to your curves. The rumpled satin makes this slip dress the perfect choice to travel with because it doesn’t wrinkle and the subtle texture helps this typically sultry dress take on a more casual vibe.

2 | Wrap Dress for Your Body Type
This surplus-style wrap dress was on the 2022 Nsale. It’s made with the most amazing fabric blend that is cool enough to wear right now when it’s hot but will look just as good this winter with black boots and tights.
Now That’s a Wrap
Wrap-style dresses do the best job of flattering a women’s waist, no matter what size, by directing the eye at an angle across the body. Surplus or wrap styles are especially helpful if you have a body type that is boxy or straight up and down.

3 | Fit & Flare for Your Body Type
This is a broad category, but one I suggest and wear all the time. The most important thing to remember about this style, which makes it so flattering, is that it tacks or touches along your ribcage. Usually the closer to your armhole the better. This not only narrows your waist but elongates your leg line all while keeping your middle minimized.
