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.

Maternity Babydoll Dresses

Empire waists are a major component of maternity wear, which means lots of maternity dresses that end above the knee qualify as babydoll dresses. Instead of trying to alter your jeans, pair a babydoll maternity dress with your most comfortable pair of leggings. You'll have lots of room to move around in comfortable fabrics that don't constrict.

Juniors Love Babydoll Dresses

Spaghetti straps and cap sleeves add youth to the babydoll silhouette, which makes it a popular dress type in the juniors' section. Fun prints, lace details, bodice buttons, and stripes add energy to this style and make it appealing to teens. Opt for cotton when buying babydoll dresses for juniors, because they'll wear easier and hold up in the wash.
