It is couture season in the fashion world and everyone is going for the dramatics. Designers are creating one-of-a kind fashions that incorporate volume. Whether through grande skirts, over-the-top blouses or dramatic dresses, the spring 2015 couture season is taking volume to new widths. What may appear first as a difficult trend is actually attainable when you properly fit it to your body shape. Short girls, tall girls and those in-between, rejoice! Everyone can go for the drama with volume.

Tall

Height works great with a dramatic silhouette; your body is long enough to rock as much volume as you want. Go for some theatrics with a voluminous caftan; if you are going to make a statement, make a loud one. Take it a step further and wear a loose frock. This will take you style from cool girl to avante-garde muse.

A square body can be tricky when dressing with volume. Try a voluminous dress or shirtdress with a chic belt. The cinched-in look will give you balance, and make your well-earned muscles look stunning. The belted look will give an hourglass effect, and is perfect for those looking to create some sexy curves.

 

Short

Almost every short girl has sworn off volume. Believing that it will make you look even shorter, volume can actually work if it is proportioned well. A great trick is a short, high-low skirt. This will still give you length while still providing pouf. Look for skirts that hit above the knee. Although midi and maxi skirts can look flattering on a short gal, they can be very tricky.

 

Large Bust

Go for bold with a fabulous floor length skirt. This style is incredible chic, and can go from day to night with a quick blouse change. A long full skirt balances a large bust, so feel free to invest in a button-up blouse and maxi skirt combo. This lets you show off some cleavage without it looking too uncovered.
