Some of our most popular styles include:
That's a good question. You may have heard the term used a lot, and you may already have an idea in your head about what it is, but do you really want to know the truth? It's quite simple, really. Although the original style of A-Line dresses from the 1950s are not quite the same as what is popular today, you can still see the outline of the capital letter "A" in the clothing you see here. It's really not much more complicated than that, and that's a good thing as far as we're concerned.
The purpose of this style is to create a more flattering, slimming look as it is fitted at the hips and then flares out the further down you go toward the hem. So, you may often hear it called an A-Line silhouette dress for this reason. There aren't a lot of rules to follow here other than the general shape. This style of dress can have pockets, or not. It could have a belt, or not. It could be one solid color, or not. It could have sleeves, or not. You get the idea.
