If you are bored of the loose dresses then try styling a bodycon dress to see how it instantly transforms the look from boring to uber glam. And if you dress up according to your body shape then you can start playing with different patterns and style.

Bodycon dress or bandage dress contours the body really well. If you have a great figure, then bodycon dress can be a great way to flaunt them because they are basically designed to show-off your curves. It typically has three lengths: upper thigh, mid thigh or knee. Body con dresses are usually made of a Lycra and polyester blend, to give them enough elasticity to hug the figure smoothly. The form-fitting nature of the bodycon emphasizes the silhouette and lends itself most successfully to slim and curvaceous women. I wouldn’t recommend this type of dresses to ladies on the heavy side as they tend to accentuate the problem areas which doesn’t look that forgiving. But with the help of other shape wear in the market, you can still rock these dresses.

For the outfit, I wore a blue bodycon dress that I got from a local boutique here in Chennai. It has these beautiful cut-out detailings on the neck, which makes the dress even more interesting. It is a midi bodycon dress so if you have long legs these might highlight them further. You can accessorize your outfit according to your preference, but here I kept my jewelry a little understated except for the earrings. I opted for this gray-black statement earrings for that glam look and kept other ornaments minimal with a simple stone studded ring and a silver watch with white crystals embedded on top. For the shoes, I opted for a pair of gray-black T-strap heels to keep the theme going.

And coming to the makeup, I went for a flawless base with healthy flushed cheeks, a light smoked out eyes, winged eyeliner and loads of mascara and kohl on the waterline. For lips, I wore my favorite red lipstick Russian Red from MAC which added that oomph to the whole look.
