Worried if it’ll look good?
If you think that a pencil dress won’t suit your figure, we are here to change that perception. It is one dress that looks great on any kind of figure, plump or slim.
It is a myth that pencil dress is not meant for plump and curvy women. All you have to keep in mind is the fabric; choose the fabric wisely if you are little plump than others. Too thin fabric sticks to your figure and enhances unwanted curves. Wear darker colours like black, brown, navy blue and dark green. Pair it with heels.
If you are slim with little curves then fret not, you too can wear a pencil dress. Choose thick structured fabric that won’t look loose on your figure. Wearing dark colours can make you look too slim hence go for bright and neutral shades like pink, beige, coral, peach, etc. Wear stilettos or pumps to add some height.
