One of our favorite feminine styles are empire waist dresses. They really have made a comeback in recent years and there are really so many great ways to bring empire waist dresses into your closet that it is hard to focus on just a few. The empire waist dress really is a great style for women with a bit of a bust or with women who may want to hide or minimize their waist line. Personally, I love empire waist styles as to me the empire waist feels somewhat regal and really invokes prior vintage style eras of days gone by.
One of my all time favorite empire waist dresses which is a great piece for summer is the Martha dress by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer. This dress features a gathered empire waist bustline and a simple flared waist. The dress hits just above the knee on most body types and is a great summer statement piece. I love the Greenbean color as it really does stand out and really does draw you into this dress.
Another great statement piece empire waist dress is the Modal Jersey V Neck dress by Splendid. Even in the basic black color, this dress does feature a wide v neck and a definite empire waistline which really does make this dress a classic statement piece. It is also of course a fun, flirty summer dress that looks great with a pair of funky sandals and chunky, long necklaces. This dress hits just above the knee.
The Odessa V Neck Maxi dress by designer Ella Moss is a completely different style dress that also features an empire waist. This dress in a beautiful Waterfall color short sleeves and features a twist at the center of the waist to really set this dress apart. Similarly, the Hollie Maxi dress by Ella Moss also features an empire waist, but here the neckline is accented by a lace knit around the neckline which gives this dress a sexy, flirty feminine touch around the top and still has a definite empire waistline. The maxi dresses are great styles to work with empire waists with their longer length and are a great way to incorporate current fashion trends and distinctive styles.
Empire waist dresses are not necessarily for every body type, but if you have the right figure to pull off a great empire waist dress, they really are a great way to incorporate your feminine touches into your closet. I love the fluid look of each of these dresses even if they have distinctive styles. The connection of the empire waist naturally means that they have fluid skirts and a more flowing regal look to them. In contrast to the fitted look of other dresses, the each of these empire waist dresses are a great summer style dress that really does work well with casual looks with just a pair of sandals or depending on the dress even feminine styled flip flops.
