The one dress that every girl can wear…

The one dress that every girl can wear…
Is it possible?
Have you ever seen the film, The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants? Well it’s about four girls of different sizes who all can magically fit in one pair of jeans. There is more to the story line but that’s the only bit you need to know. Well after watching this film, I got thinking. Was something like this possible? Not for jeans but, instead could I find a type of dress that could be worn by everyone. Dresses are hard to find and with the Christmas season almost underway, party dresses are even more difficult to find. Yet I decided I’d do a bit of shopping, for experiment purposes only, and see if I could find a dress that would suit girls of all sizes. Here’s what I found…
1. Skater dresses suit everyone!
The style of the dress draws you in at the waist and emphasises your figure. They provide you with an hourglass shape which is great for curvy and athletic shapes who might normally struggle to get this flattering silhouette. The flowing skirt also draws attention away from the torso so if you are a curvier girl, this style is definitely one to consider.
The length can also vary so it’s great for both tall and short girls. You can get these dresses with sleeves or without so if you have a broad top, your shoulders can be covered too. This dress seemingly suits all shapes.
2. The LBD is on every dress list. Ok, this is cheating a bit. Black dresses can be found in all sizes, shapes and styles so yes, they will suit everyone. But the colour black is slimming and looks great on everyone. Little black dresses are a classic and it would be a crime not to include them on this list.
3. In terms of trends, you really can’t go wrong with monochrome. It’s a style that never goes out of fashion and each year the catwalk updates it for us. Black is, as I said previously, slimming and the trend can be vamped up or toned down. It’s a win win situation.
So the jeans might have been magic in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants but when you look at real clothes, there are still styles and cuts that suit everyone. They may comes in different sizes and not be exactly like the jeans in the film, but it is still amazing that some clothes can still suit everyone. Think Skater, LBD and Monochrome and have a look at your perfect dress.
