The Drop Waist Dress
Whether you're looking for something casual or classy the drop waist dress will always create the impression of effortless elegance and attitude. It first appeared on the fashion scene in the glamorous 1920s era, when flapper dresses were all the rage! As a rebellion against the restrictive clothing that came before it, the flapper dress embodied utter freedom with its contrasting loose-fit and daring embellished detailing.
Not only does the drop waist silhouette create the illusion of height, it also elongates the torso! Attention is naturally drawn to the neckline, so flapper girls would often make the most of this and show off lavish layers of beaded pendants and strings of pearl necklaces to emphasise the lengthy look!
