8 Cleverly Colour-Blocked Dresses
No time to hit the gym yet yearning to feel (and look) your best for that big presentation, meeting, date this weekend? Un-furrow those brows and explore your options in colour-blocked frocks that give instant trims and oomphs without breaking a sweat. With strategically placed blocks of colour, and prints—in the form of a triangle here or a panel there—these devilish little numbers cater to a myriad of body types. For boyish or athletic figures in need of a little hourglass shape, look for inserts or blocks that nip in the waist area for a more curvaceous look. For a general svelte slimming effect, opt for streamlined panels running the length of the dress, ideally in a darker hue, to focus the eye on the centre panel.
