How I Wear Body Con


I am seeing body con dresses a lot lately. I love the look but would say I am more body self conscious than conscious at times. I got this dress several years ago and wear it for special occasions with my husband. It is a nice knit fabric and is ruched around the waist. 

I am not always ready to wear this dress as is, so I have come up with lots of ways to be completely comfortable when wearing it. I usually take a scarf and wear it different ways for different moods. I may wear it around my shoulders letting it hang down for more full body coverage or I may wrap it around my neck for more chest coverage. It's also fun to wrap the scarf around my waist so it can cover my stomach and hips. See the versatility and fun in this dress?

Other things I think about when purchasing or wearing a body con dress are that I prefer a black dress or a dark solid color. I also like it to have a good weight fabric. I always want to wear shoes that are comfortable so I am not flailing around as I walk. I like my jewelry to accent not steal the show and I prefer a clutch rather than a larger bag. All this seems to compliment my look which is simple and easy.
