Optical Illusion Dress

I would like to introduce you all to my new favorite outfit...the illusion dress! The illusion dress cleverly adds drama and sophistication all while helping to visually shed a few pounds off the waistline. How often do we plan to wear our favorite LBD to a cocktail event just because we think it will help make us look thinner? I'm guilty of this too! The illusion dress is a great LBD alternative.  You can wear it out to your next cocktail event, or pair with an oversized cardigan and flats for a casual daytime-look. It's appropriate, chic, and corporate girl approved!

What I love the most about this Karen Kane contrast dress is the pretty lace design. It helps to further deceive the eye and adds an instant hourglass shape. This dress is truly comfortable and could easily be worn from day to night. It's not too tight or revealing. You can shop the look by clicking here.

Additional perks to the illusion dress: instant leg lengthener. That's enough to make me want this dress in every color ;). The black and white paneling also carefully shrinks the center and draws attention to the lace detailing. Fitted throughout the torso, this style is instantly slenderizing!
