Update the way you style this classic!

When was the last time you took your bodycon dress out of your closet? Admit it, the form-fitting frock is a wardrobe staple no matter your personal style. Over the years it has been associated with Kim Kardashian, since she’s barely seen in any other dress silhouette. We can’t blame her though, if we had her curves—we’d flaunt them, too!

But if you’re wary of the bodycon’s default hubadera nature, don’t fret! There are updated ways to style it even when you’re not too keen on showing off too much skin! Here, we rounded up 10 fool-proof outfit combinations featuring different types of bodycon dresses you should totally consider for your next OOTD!

10 Fresh and Sultry Ways to Style a Bodycon Dress

1. Stay fresh in a mini dress!

For an effortlessly chic look, you can’t go wrong with a cami mini dress! It’s perfect for the warm weather especially if you opt for a light color like sage green.

2. Keep it sexy with cutouts!

The perfect date night look would be this sultry cutout dress. It shows the right amount of skin and gives you the hourglass figure of your dreams! Finish off the look with a rattan handbag if you’re heading somewhere tropical.

3. You can never go wrong with a black and white look.

If you have a black bodycon dress, which we’re sure you do, pair it with white sneakers and a matching white headband for a more polished streetwear look.

4. Mix up your look with a structured blazer and playful sneakers.

Does this count as smart casual? Dress up your look with a beige blazer and your coolest looking sneakers. Pro tip: Match your bag to your dress.

5. Experiment with prints!

Print may be a bit daunting, but every once in a while it’s good to try something new! Here, Chelsea Valencia opted for the trendy checkerboard print, while Toni Sia went for the classic tiger print. Both chose a chic coffee brown shade to tone down the zany Y2K print.

Going somewhere fancy? A neutral toned dress would be perfect with a designer clutch and strappy heels.

7.  When in doubt, wear white.

We love this low-back halter frock on Ashley Garcia. She styled it with matching rectangular-shaped sunnies and had her hair in bouncy waves with flipped out ends for that ‘60s touch!

8. Dress up a black LBD with statement boots!

ICYDK, platform boots are back and there’s a reason why everyone’s obsessed. Other than giving you that added height boost, the funky heel and toe cap silhouette really elevates a basic bodycon dress.

9. A printed midi dress will make you look dressed up in an instant!

A textured and printed midi can make you look put-together even when you’re in a pair of thong sandals! Just be sure to pick a frock in a bright bold hue or eye-catching print to truly make a statement.

10. Chunky sneakers are always a good idea.

A great way to dress down a sultry bodycon is to pair it with your favorite chunky sports sneakers. This is perfect when you want to wear your dressy frock to more casual outings.
