Few women know their way around a little black dress like Adele. The songstress has ‘em in every shape and silhouette, some with swiss dots, others with lacy trim…the list goes on and on. But this Burberry number is one that Monahan cites as especially flattering: “It’s a combination of the detail at the neck—great for pulling focus to her stunning face—and the straight skirt. A skirt that flows down like this will always be more slimming than a fuller style.”
CURVY STYLE TIP: LBDs don’t have to be boring. Keep your eye out for styles with a bold, unusual focal point and a slimming silhouette.
