Sometimes a trend comes along that’s as comfortable as it is stylish, and the elastic-waist dress is a case in point. Not only is it a flattering option for any shape – these elastic-waist dresses create a soft, feminine silhouette – they’re also a staple for work, weekend and warm-weather getaways. Heading somewhere hot? Try a floral-embroidered linen dress by Vilshenko for effortless holiday style. Need something for the evening? Alessandra Rich, Awake and Saloni for after-dark options.
