The tiny waist

by Amanda Bedgood

Whittle the middle with easy pieces

Play up the hourglass figure this summer with pieces that you can throw and go that happen to accentuate the waist. Simple lines and neutral colors are a great backdrop for killer accessories and bold shoes.

Sky Blue Clothing has a striped navy dress that has figure-flattering design and (thanks to the spacing of the horizontal stripes) a slimming look head to toe.

Maven Womenswear has a sweet little blue dress that is summer's answer to the classic wrap dress shape. Wearable with everything from flats to demure heels.

The season's must have piece - the jumpsuit - can be found at Jewelie's in a shape that accentuates the waist and truly goes from day to night with heels and sparkling bold statement earrings.
