Lace Waist Dress
A Waisted Formula.
When it comes to the waist, proportion matters. Size doesn’t.
Consider “the rule of thirds,”which is responsible, in some ways, for the hourglass more famously denoting an attractive figure than for counting the seconds. It’s why the corset held such a torturous reign over women for centuries. Cut it down to the power of shape.
The rule of thirds is why the Eiffel tower makes you smile. Architects, artists, and designers know this.
Take this dress.
The ratio is masterfully set in action thanks to the most critical feature—the waist’s crochet-lace overlay.
It marvelously frames the 1/3 above and the 2/3 below… anchoring your critical not-so-center point and counting the seconds to your next entrance.
