4 Cocktail Dresses that make you look thinner and don't hurt your wallet! | FASHION OVER 40



That's right! I got today 4 cocktail dresses that make you look thinner and don't hurt your wallet- cause they are freaking affordable! πŸ™†


1.  Three Quarter Sleeve Lace Panel High Waist Dress

The trick to make you look thinner is not only the high waist- the A-line of the dress smoothly hides wider hips, the lace detail on the bust draws attention to your upper body and the satin band-belt creates a thin waist!

Wallet friendly too for under $30! (Update: dress sold out, this one is similar- but cost a little more πŸ™ˆ)

2. Cap Sleeve Color Block High Waist Dress

The black overskirt creates dimension and hides wide hips elegantly, while the white pleated skirt peeks out. The little attached belt with lace detail draws attention to the waist and makes it appear smaller!

Of course wallet friendly too for around $30!

3. Black Lace Sequined Party Dress

Black always makes you look thinner and is so forgiving! The smart off-the shoulder cocktail dress draws attention to your shoulders- not the hips! The sequins create elegance and make this dress special and timeless!

Price depends on your size- ranging from $13-$40!

4. Sequin Embellished Slit Sleeve Asymmetric Hem Dress

The asymmetric dress distracts and draws attention to the legs down (not the hips) plus the slit in the sleeves creates another distraction to the arms! Very comfortable too, so you don't have to skip that buffet! ;-)

The dress is under $30 and won't break your bank!
