Bodycon (body conscious) dresses were ubiquitous through most of 2012, but it’s time to give them a rest. The fitted silhouette was ideal for embracing voluptuous shapes and went hand-in-hand with the “Real Women Have Curves” movement. Now that reality TV stars wear it as if no other silhouettes exist, I’m excited to see other dress shapes become more prominent.

Here a few silhouettes that are just as feminine and flattering as bodycon that are worth trying this holiday season.

The Skater Dress

The whimsical shape hugs the waist and flares out at the skirt, similar to an ice-skater’s costume. It elongates the leg and helps create an hourglass silhouette.

    I never liked the platform heels; the heights were getting impractical.
    To see them on someone with big feet – Frankenstein feet!
    Taraji is looking super cute, I want that dress!
