Summer dresses are suppose to be airy, girly with a great dose of simplicity just because the season calls for plainness. Who would have guess that after the eighties and the early nineties glory days, this season’s secret desire would be a body-con!
Let me explain. Body-con these days means something entirely different to before. Back in the day, form-flaunting garments led our minds directly to sex. Lately it has come to be related with women’s empowered rather than anything else. In fact, the general trend is towards being covered up. Is not like we don’t want to show off our well-trained bodies, we just want to do it in more a discreet way. The 2017 body-cons, showcase the body without being too obviously sexy.
