Wearing Babydoll Dresses With Elegance
Babydoll dresses have several defining characteristics, including empire waists and short hemlines. Though the name sounds cutesy and young, the babydoll style is a versatile one, and many designers have incorporated babydoll dresses into elegant collections for all ages. Changes in the neckline, sleeve length, and draping completely alter the impression a babydoll dress gives.
Empire waists flatter many figure types because they emphasize your bust and lengthen the rest of your body. Such a high waist creates the illusion that you have longer legs. A skirt that ends slightly above the knee gives you the opportunity to show off those stems in your favorite pair of shoes.
To keep a babydoll dress from looking too young, opt for one with at least three-quarter sleeves, like fashions you'll find from Luxology. Solid colors and simple prints are more ways to add elegance and professionalism to a babydoll silhouette. If you like accessories, lots of women pair belts with babydoll dresses to further accentuate the empire waist.
A new babydoll dress incarnation involves draped long sleeves with lots of fabric at the wrist. A looser fit and more fabric in the skirt, combined with the sleeves, offers a sophisticated style that still shows off your legs. You can achieve similar grace and still go sleeveless if you opt for a babydoll dress that has a high neckline, or even a turtleneck.
