Ribbons and Bows
Wear them around your waist or use them in a corset style to tighten up a looser dress. The ribbon is one of the most versatile but important details on any outfit. The bow is traditionally used to fasten, but here it's used to real decorative effect. Featuring at the front of this vintage inspired skirt, use your bow to bring a sensational new style to office or formal wear!

Whether you are looking at tattoo style prints or the larger florals, it's these dressy illustrations that will make a massive impact on your style. Large prints are said to work with taller frames while the smaller delicate prints will not swamp petite figures. The Cool Mint Floral Chiffon Tea Dress is the perfect example of a pretty summer print. Simply add a string of pearls and some lace gloves for instant vintage chic.

A very important but often over looked part of any dress. A sweetheart neckline can work well to flatter smaller builds. But even curvier figures can benefit from this very feminine style. The Jade Green Polkadot Dress has the perfect neckline to flatter. It's finished off with a neat nautical bow for added style measure.

The thinner waist has always been in vogue, however not all of us are blessed with an hourglass look. This is where faking it comes in handy. Look for pinched in waist lines and flared skirts that will give you a feel of being curvy. A delicate belt can be a great hint of a slimmer waistline, it's light too and adds an element of the chic as it finished off the Teal Green Butterfly Hepburn Dress nicely.

There's a lot to be said about sleeves and the effect they can bring to any outfit. Puffed sleeves are feminine but powerful, much like the rigid look of the 1980's shoulder pad style. Longer length sleeves can be demure and smart, while sleeveless outfits are a little more daring. There is a slight puff on the sleeves of the Madden Polkadot Red Dress, it's enough to add a sense of vintage fun to the outfit.
