Long Haul Flight Dress, ~USD 33
I’m loving the look above! What about you? The Korean long dress makes one look taller and slimmer instantly! But wait, before you rush off and start clicking on the website and putting that pretty dress into your online shopping cart, do you think you can pull it off?
In order to imitate a certain look or make it work for you, it is important to ‘dissect’ the look and understand what makes it outstanding otherwise you may end up following trends blindly (even those that are not suitable for you)!
This is why for the same dress (same colour and cutting), one lady may fab while another may look fat! If you don’t understand the elements in a trend, it may end up working against you. Having said that, what do you think is important in making the Korean long dress look attractive?

1. Pick a long dress in a single colour
This gets a little scientific. When you wear a long dress (those that hits the ankle or somewhere near, MUST cover most part of the calf) in a single colour, the vision of the eye is not broken up and hence the silhouette looks longer. When you wear a colorblock dress or even rainbow-coloured dress, the illusion is broken up and hence the tall and slim effect is gone. Also, minimize on the ruffles and exaggerating details and you’ll look tall and slim in long dresses instantly – no pills or surgery required
p.s: Pick a black piece for the extra slimming effect but accessorize to make it less boring

2. Fabulous figure is a must-have (read: no tummy)
To carry the Korean long dress style, one needs to have a fabulous figure! NOTE: Fabulous figure does not mean you have to be slim, in this case it just means no tummy. Even among plus-sized ladies, there are those with great figure and defined waistline!
If you have a slight tummy, wear a belt or tummy shaper works great. In the unfortunate case whereby you love long dress and have a not-so-easy-to-conceal tummy, opt for one with an empire cut or elastic waistband.

3. Divert the attention, neckline or waistline – pick one!
Although at one look, the eyes will see a longer silhouette but to enhance it, you have to guide it somewhere. Typically it’s either neckline or waistline. If you have a slim waist and a perfect hourglass figure, play it to your advantage. Pick a piece that’s hugging at the waist, if it’s not, send it for alteration to ensure a good fit, you’ll be amazed at the difference.
If you have beautiful neck bone, pick a piece with U or V neckline or even off-shoulder style so you can show it off. If you have a pretty face, opt for shades, wear a scarf or even necklace to draw attention to the right place.
If all else fails, just try on as many long dress styles as you can to see which suits you! When shopping online for a long dress, do look out for the presence of return policy and see if they allow you unconditional return within a reasonable period (typically 7 days, 14 days or even 30 days). Unconditional return means you can return the dress as long as you’re not satisfied, no questions asked
