Fresh off the runway, this season's modern silhouettes range from flattering drop-waist dresses to sexy midriff baring separates. Best of all, these adventurous shapes-favored by stars like Jessica Biel and Zoe Saldana-are extremely easy to wear. 02 of 17 Drop-waist Charley Gallay/Getty Images for LACMA, MCMULLAN CO/SIPA, Steve Granitz/Getty Images No need to wait for the Great Gatsby remake to bring the '20s back—the Jazz Age comes roaring into spring with fresh flapper styles. Monochromatic palettes and streamlined designs keep these chic shifts from feeling like costumes and reinvent the relaxed shape for the 21st century. 03 of 17 Theory Courtesy Cotton, nylon and acrylic blend shift, $375; theory.com for stores. 04 of 17 Rebecca Taylor Courtesy Silk dress, $495; rebeccataylor.com. 05 of 17 Joe Fresh Courtesy Polyester and spandex shift, $69; joefresh.com for stores. 06 of 17 Midriff Baring Dave M.

Think again. Rather than accentuate flaws, peplums cinch your waist and create hourglass curves. Team the flattering cut with a neutral hue and this one's an ultra-wearable trend for day or night. 15 of 17 Zara Courtesy Frilled skirt, $89.90; zara.com. 16 of 17 Tibi Courtesy Cotton top, $495; net-a-porter.com. 17 of 17 Antipodium Courtesy Linen shirtdress, $230; barneys.com.
