Fashion is dictated by its short-lived fads and seasonal style trends. As we see, trendy looks once sported on the hottest runways disappear into the fashion black hole, and it is obvious that trends that make the fashion cut are here to stay.

A distinguished waist is one of those long-lasting fashion trends. No matter what look you are after, an exaggerated waistline will attract all sorts of attention. Believe it or not you can achieve a defined waistline without spending hours at the gym or restricting yourself to a carb-free diet. By adding a few fashionable pieces to your wardrobe you can highlight your shape and give the illusion of having that sexy hourglass figure.

First is the wrap dress. The wrap dress is a flattering piece with a sophisticated feel. You can dress up the wrap dress with a pair of stilettos and vibrant jewelry or play it down with flats and more casual accessories. The magic of the wrap dress is in its name. A piece of the dress literally wraps around the waist drawing attention to the center of your body giving the illusion of a perfect hourglass figure. The wrap dress should be a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. This piece is ideal for any occasion and usually made of light, non-constricting fabrics making the wrap dress a hybrid between comfort and style.

Next is the most common waist-defining piece there is out there. Just scan your closet and I am sure you will find a belt to tie together any outfit while highlighting the thinnest part of your body. A belt is an effortless addition to any look, which creates the vision of sexy womanly curves. Place a belt over any dress or top to enhance your shape, while attracting all eyes to your itty-bitty waistline. Experiment defining your waist by trying thick, thin, studded, printed, or solid belts to add the perfect flare to any outfit.

Peplum is the fastest-growing trend of the season, from peplum tops to peplum dresses, it’s everywhere! This elegant, feminine look is a perfect piece to emphasize your waistline. The flare of a peplum shirt or dress jets out directly at the waistline, therefore, visibly shrinking it. Peplum is not only a fashion-forward piece but one that does wonders to show off your itty-bitty waistline. Highlight your hourglass frame in style this season by sporting a peplum style shirt or dress.

Lastly the color block trend doubles as a bold fashion statement and a waist-enhancer. This fashion trends is made up of two contrasting colors, which helps in making your waist appear thinner. The colored panels on the side of the dress create a shadow-like effect that gives the illusion of an hourglass silhouette, with the waist at its center. A color block dress is a conservative, trendy piece that not only hugs your curves but also highlights your waist as your thinnest feature.
