WHY WE LOVE IT
It's the only fall trend that indulges in sexiness. These dresses also flatter and slim most figures—even when they fit close to the body—because of the well-placed seams and graphic lines. HOW TO WEAR IT
Find the sheer insets, curvy cuts, and sparkling geometric shapes that strategically glorify your body to make inches optically vanish. These clothes have little hanger appeal, so you must
try them on. Play off extremes and forget about color.
