Trapeze Dress

Also known as a tent or sack, this is a dress that’s shaped like a trapezoid with the cut jutting out and away from the body. “Depending on the degree of jut, the effect can be subtly architectural or thoroughly over-the-top,” says the Washington Post.
To qualify as a trapeze dress the cut must be above the knee and have no waistline, with the skirt taking on an A-line shape. To carry off this style you need to be more of an average frame than petite. To balance out the full skirt make sure the shoulders are a good fit and a banded neckline can add definition.
