Trend Alert: Bodycon

Bodycon dresses and skirts are really popular right now. They are pretty much everywhere, in every store at all different price points.

For those of you who don't really know was body con is, I will explain!! Body con, is short for body conscious (duh!), it refers to clothing that is very tight on the body, like skintight mini skirts, dresses, and even those skinny jeans and leggings. It is inspired by Hervé Lèger's bandage dresses that we've been seeing on the runway. It's meant to show off your surves and is designed to sculpt the body, kind of like a glove...

Here are some pictures of celebrities wearing Lèger's infamous bandage dresses:
It's a trend that some people might not like because it shows EVERYTHING! But it's nice to mix it up every once in a while. Lucky for us, boyfriend shirts and loose tees are still in style!

Looks like i'll be hitting the gym extra hard this season though...
