Twisted Sister

-------

Diffusion lines can be tricky: Too close to the original and customers will wonder what they’re paying for; too left-field and shoppers will be confused; but Preen‘s nailed the formula with Preen Line. This lightweight viscose-silk knit dress has the distinctive sexy attitude of the main collection, but at a fraction of the cost. We love the peekaboo slits on the shoulders, and the draped middle panel is a body-friendly addition for those of us without abs of steel. Plus, the dusky nude color makes it perfect for a breezy spring day, or, come fall, with tights, boots, and a shearling. Click the image to shop.

Wrap Star

Although the fashion world seems to be moving in a more loose and easy direction, one look at the Fall Hervé Léger and Carlos Miele runways and it’s clear: Body-con isn’t about to disappear overnight. Since bandage dresses seem to have staying power, it makes sense to invest in a lighter-hued version for spring. This beautifully draped cream tube from Topshop is a great way to add some curve-hugging minimalism to your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Click the image to shop.

Diving Lesson

-------

We’ve already endorsed scuba chic in our What to Save For feature, and this body-con Lisa Marie Fernandez dress is exactly what we had in mind. The swimwear designer’s sexy sheath is made from her signature neoprene and features a built-in bustier for added structure. Wear it now with a strong-shouldered blazer and in the spring with sturdy wedges à la Proenza Schouler. You’ll be sure to make a splash. Click the image to shop.
