Ahh what a fantastic key look 'whimsy' is. Everything about it has a very vintage feel, and I just love the volume/prom dress trend inside of this key look. Cup detailed bust, tight waist, and voluptuous, full skirts scream 1950s.
To add even more volume to the likes of the Anthropologie dresses, wear a contrasting coloured petticoat. It will not only add volume, but a lovely effect, particularly with a black & white dress. If you are going to wear a petticoat, try not to go too bright and overpowering or it will just distract completely from the dress itself. Petticoats can take a dress from day-to-night.
Softer, silkier volume dresses are fantastic for dinner dates or the ballet. Puffier, 50s feel dresses are more suitable for proms and those very special events. Make the most of volume during SS10, and choose it for your special occasions.
