Look sensational at your weekend BBQ, pool party or wherever you're jet-setting to this summer.

Tevolio halter chiffon dress in Mint

Best for… a bigger bottom half
Since I'm this shape, I know a few tricks to cover up my bum and lose a few inches from my thighs. An interesting neckline—like this strappy halter style—will draw all of the attention away from a Triangle’s fuller bottom half and towards your gorgeous face. Loving this refreshing mint shade—the ‘it’ color of the season. And lighter colors will always make you look more youthful.

Maeve Caldrea dress in Red

Best for… busty gals
A fit-to-flare dress is the perfect shape for you, my darling. Why? It instantly brings balance to a top-heavy figure, such as an Inverted Triangle. Look for a dress with wider straps to conceal a supportive bra and a slight scoop or V-neck to show a sensible amount of cleavage. Ditch the boring black—smaller scaled, all-over prints are surprisingly more slimming than a solid shade for your shape.

Mason stripe dress

Best if you’re… straight up and down.
With no need to look more slender, Rulers should seek out strategic color-blocking and horizontal stripes to create some seriously sexy curves. This nautical-inspired dress screams a Hamptons weekend getaway. Just slip it on and pair with some sandals and sunglasses.

Wildfox Grunge Rose Print dress

Best to… tone a tummy
Solid shades and color-blocking on a Circle shape can highlight problem areas, while a watercolor-washed floral print gives the illusion of an all-over hot bod, including a toned tummy. What muffin top? This dress is cinched at the waist (not too tight) and gently floats away from your body, covering any imperfections. Perfect to pair with wedges and a floppy sun hat.

Rachel Pally Felix maxi dress

Best sundress to… show off your curves
A solid shade is always super slimming. By not breaking up the body, solids showcase your fabulous Hourglass figure. I love a great maxi dress for the weekend—pair it with sandals or sky-high wedges to look longer and leaner.
