Get rid of those balloon-y numbers (left), demands Adam Yankauskas, Maggy London's design director. Instead, opt for dresses that accent the natural waist. "They're classic alluring and don't overwhelm the frame the way a trapeze silhouette does. This summer, show off curves rather than bury them under extraneous fabric."
We love this Summer Rose Chiffon Dress (right, $27.80 at Forever21.com) that cinches waists and flatters figures.
