To Pioneer or not to Pioneer? It's fairly obvious why this trend is such a heavy hitter in our area. It's not hard to imagine a cute little pioneer walking through the fields wearing an easy breezy dress like this. We love our pioneer heritage in Utah! Not only that, this dress style is modest, also a Utah fave, and fits virtually every figure type. Win-win! But is it always flattering? Here are a few tips on how to make this cute trend work for your figure type.
Narrow shoulders? Avoid the drop shoulder and love on the ruffle or puff sleeve details with seam lines on the shoulder joint.
Broad shoulders? Avoid big puffy sleeves with visually weighty fabric instead focus on flowy fabrics.
Little to no waist indentation? Or are you a combination of the above? Avoid seem lines right at the waist, be sure the horizontal lines hit at your narrowest point and bring the attention to the middle with a necklace or second layer such as a vest.
These are lovely dresses for weddings and graduation season. Enjoy looking your best in them with my pro stylist picks (below).
