What’s the best style of party dress for hourglass figures?
A common issue that petite girls have is of course looking too short and wider than they actually are. You want your occasions dresses to work for you and help you to look taller and slimmer.
Wouldn’t it just be great if it were possible to get some advice on how to look great if you’re petite? The team here at OuterInner.com are coming to your rescue! Here are some tips that can help petites to look great:
There is nothing wrong with mini-skirts, but they actually aren’t great for shorter girls. They’re good at showing off legs, but if you’re petite the hem will be falling right across the thickest part of your thigh which makes you…look shorter. Don’t believe me? Check out this pic. See what I mean?

Whether you want something flirty or formal, OuterInner.com can help, so let’s get into it with some suggestions:
If you’re on a date and looking to impress that guy over a glass of wine or two, then flirty cocktail dresses are definitely the way forward.
Red, pink and white or ivory are great color choices for this occasion. You may also want to show a little flesh (not so much as to not still be classy though), so strapless, short dresses are very much a target.
I think that this Sweetheart Sleeveless Short Satin Cocktail Dress is a fab choice. The ivory color is so sweet and the silk-like satin is a light and shimmery fabric that shows off your shape without looking trashy. It’s also a really cute backless dress which looks simply divine!
This dress is usually US$79, but it’s actually on sale at just US$23.70!! (Style Code: 07579)
On the other hand, you can go for the classic LBD which are certainly great occasions dresses for a flirty date. This Sleeveless Short Black Beading Little Black Dress is a nice one with its delicate ruffles and the halter neckline also shows you off without going too far! This is an A-line dress which is perfect for most shapes and is just US$74.00, so if you don’t have an LBD yet then give this one a try! (Style Code: 01388)
If you’re going out for a classy dinner then you’ll want occasions dresses that are a little more formal than a cocktail dress. Why not get dressed up and really blow him away with your sexy and classy look? After all, it isn’t often that we get to dress like a real lady in these fast-paced days where we have work, kids and a million other things to worry about.
Definitely consider some red-carpet glamour for this occasion. It’ll be worth the effort, believe us!

We think that you just can’t argue with a Red Babydoll set like this one, which is so elegant and hides just enough to drive your guy wild with anticipation! This is a steal at only US$19.99! (Style Code: 07163)

Christmas is coming and winter is well and truly upon us (in the Northern hemisphere) and temperatures are dropping! OuterInner.com has put together a list of 10 warm and fashionable clothing tips which will help keep you warm and looking good in winter, so read on if your winter wardrobe is chillier than a snowman’s pocket and uglier than the grinch:
Wearing layers is great for staying warm as the layers trap some warm air between them and insulate you from the cold. Consider wearing a vest under your t-shirt and then an overcoat of some kind. The good news is that you can also wear your favorite summer clothes for longer if you’re layering!
If you want to get a look that’s a bit different then try some patterned tights, perhaps a herringbone or fishnet, as these look a little unusual and can give you a unique look.
Natural materials like cotton and wool are great for winter clothes as they are both warm and light. There are some fabulous kinds of wool available these days too such as angora or alpaca wool! These more modern wools are soft, light and not at all itchy, so try a nice sweater or scarf made of them this winter!
A typical angora sweater…mmm, toasty.
You can be too warm though, as if you get too warm you’ll start sweating. If it’s really cold out then this sweat will cause you to get cold as any moisture on your body will cool quickly (which is its whole point).
Make sure that you’re wearing some layers next time you’re on a monster shopping trip so that if all the walking makes you start to sweat you can open or remove a layer and cool down just a little!
Sounds crazy? Well, you’ll feel like you’re wearing pants, but will have the nice profile of tights that goes so well with skirts and long sweater skirts. Try it!
So are you ready for winter? Which clothes do you consider to be the ideal warm and fashionable clothing in winter? Do you have any tips that you always follow every winter that you can share? Let us know by leaving a comment below please!
Not all 90s fashions are still popular today! Does anyone remember the crimped hair, coloured sunglasses and blonde highlights? How about Vanilla Ice? Luckily sheath dresses are still hanging in there, and are one of the better-looking fashions of the time! Remember Jennifer Aniston’s many sheath dresses in ‘Friends?’ Exactly!
First lets look at what the sheath dress is, who made them famous and then if they’ll work for you:
The classic sheath dress is essentially a big, rectangular piece of fabric folded over and sewn along one edge, producing a sheath or tube shape. They are actually one of the oldest styles of dresses, being common thousands of years before Christ in Ancient Egypt.
They’ve remained popular until the present day, but became particularly chic in the 90s. Star of ‘Friends,’ Jennifer Aniston, was and still is a big fan of sheath dresses. Here she is in 1996 with the other girls from ‘Friends’ wearing a sheath dress:
It can be hard to find a dress that suits every shape, but sheath dresses are pretty versatile and they are really great for girls with an hourglass figure (but they usually look good in most styles), but also thankfully for pear-shapes. Since the majority of women are pears then sheath dresses are a good addition to your wardrobe! So let’s head back in time to the 90s!
Since they’re pretty figure-hugging, sheath dresses will show off an hourglass shape’s curves brilliantly, but they’re also good for pears as, although your hips are wider, as long as you balance your upper half you’ll also look lovely. Bigger busts won’t need to worry about creating that balance, but if you’ve got a smaller bust then you can wear a shrug or choose a two color dress which has a lighter, more eye-catching color.
Let’s take a look at some of the different kinds of sheath dresses that we offer:
Do you like these sheath dresses? If not remember that there’s a whole range of great value sheath dresses available in hundreds of different colours!
So what do you think of sheath dresses? Are they a 90s fashion that you’re glad to welcome back? Are you already a big fan of them? Let us know in the comments below!
As homecoming approaches let’s tackle a thorny issue that many girls are facing; the horror of turning up at the party wearing the same homecoming dresses as someone else!
Although not normally associated with homecoming, legendary German physicist Albert Einstein once stated:
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
This led me to think that for years many girls have been literally insane when it comes to choosing their homecoming dresses, as they’re going for the same style that they always wear! No wonder they find that they’ve got on the same dress as someone else!
The search for a unique dress is a yearly pilgrimage for girls attending their homecoming parties as they, panic rising, search the local boutiques and malls trying to find that dress that will make them stand out in front of their friends, dates and peers, but is also in the style that they find comfortable.
So we learn from Einstein not to be crazy and to do something different!
People are creatures of habit and just as people will always read the same newspaper, drink the same coffee and wear the same brands; many women will often always wear the same style of dresses, as they are comfortable with them.
This is very convenient, but actually it’s not going to help you find a unique homecoming dress, and so to guarantee you’ll make a splash this homecoming you need to try something different and perhaps a little new!
If you’re usually a bit of a wall-flower then choose bright colours!
Lover of long dresses? Go short!
More common styles of homecoming dresses, like strapless dresses, are pretty commonplace, therefore you could try something a little different like a one-shoulder dress.
In order to get a unique dress then you need to do more than just look for a dress that’s just gorgeous. You should also be brave and change from your usual style as well, because this will also shock your friends and peers into thinking, “She looks so fantastic and different!”
So this homecoming why not try something different. By doing this you can not only be sure that you’re sane, but you’ll also be more likely to find a unique homecoming dress that delights and impresses your friends!
What are you going to be wearing this homecoming? We’d love to hear your ideas below, so please leave us a comment!
