Fall Fashion Favorites Under $100: Shop Your Shape with a Stylish Skater Dress
There’s a familiar chill in the air and everyone in the office is suddenly craving a Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte. You know what that means – it’s time to kiss summer goodbye and embrace fall 2014!
Just because you have to pack away your shorts and tanks for another year, that doesn’t mean you need to hide your gorgeous body under a baggy sweatshirt! Au contraire. At ShopYourShape, we’ve got stacks of fab fall fashion ideas to flatter every figure.
Not sure what your body shape is? No problem. Just check out our super simple Body Shape Calculator.
Today, we’re going to show you how to expand your fall wardrobe with one of this year’s trendiest and easiest to wear styles, the skater dress. Some of your favorite celebrities have been spotted wearing this trend already this fall! No matter which of our eight body shapes you fit into, rest assured, you can rock this piece.
Skater dresses sport flattering cinched waistlines and flared skirts to create the illusion of an enviable hourglass figure. So, if you love the way A-Line dresses fit your form but want something a little shorter and bang on trend, a skater dress might just be your new best friend.
Fall 2014 fashion is all about sultry mauves and bold burgundies and the American Rag Ponte Knit Skater Dress (Macy’s – $49.50) in zinfandel is a gorgeous example of these hot hues in action. This skater dress’s slim seams hug the body in all the right places to accentuate every tantalizing curve, while three quarter sleeves work to flatter fuller arms. Not only is the cosy knit fabric a runway favorite this season, but the added warmth will keep you cozy all through winter.
Once you’ve shopped your skater dress, make sure your legs look irresistibly smooth with a pair of pantyhose. For daywear, try a natural beige colour, but if you’re headed out for drinks after dark, add a hint of sensuality to your ensemble with opaque black tights. Ladies with a fuller lower half (pears, spoons, ovals and diamonds) can effortlessly slim down the hips and tummy area with Hanes Women’s Shaping Control Top Hosiery (Target – $8.00).
Boots are back and bigger than ever this fall. These Faux Suede Lace Up Booties (Forever 21 – $32.80) are a perfect companion to your new knitted skater dress. The lace up detailing offers a touch of old world class to balance out your sharp look, while sturdy three and a half inch heels comfortably elongate the legs.
Don’t forget to accessorise. This ponte-knit skater dress’s scooped neckline is just begging for a statement necklace. Emphasize your décolletage with this Western Redux Faux Stone Necklace (Forever 21 – $10.80). The stunning combination of black and gold is perfect for celebrating fall.
Et voila! A hot new outfit for fall for under $100. Knitted skater dresses are going to be huge this season, so show your friends how fashion-forward you are by embracing the trend today.
Happy shopping, ladies. And remember, always Shop Your Shape, not your size.
