Vacation Question #101

Hey, Style Diva!

I just wanted to ask you something. I am going on vacation with my boyfriend in 3-4 days from today (yess!) :D and every time I think about what to wear, I draw a blank. I am tall, slim, with a good, boyish figure and long, black color is kinda fair..but i dunno what to wear.

Please advise .. thank you sooo much...N (from India)

Hello N (from India),

As soon as I got your email I had an idea on what to recommend. The one item that you MUST have before you go on vacation is a cotton empire waist dress. In essence, it will balance your figure out by cinching you at the upper torso (the smallest part of your body) and the rest will be flowing away from the body. The best part of the cotton empire waist is that you can dress it up or down with your accessories. Wear the dress with metallic flats for the day and for the night time wear the dress with peep toe wedges or platform heels, and don't forget to pack a clutch, it will come in handy.

I also thought out a second outfit that is on the funky-creative side. I have included my utmost favorite capri jeans (I bought these and adore them) and I like wearing them with any drapey top.

FYI....I know this green dress is not empire waist but I couldn't help it. I love this dress and color is superb.

Hope this helps and don't forget to take pictures...take care and have fun on your vacation.

Anonymous-Yes, a medium sized chect women would definitely be able to wear these dresses. All you will need is a cami underneath.
