Empire Waist

Discover the flattering design of an empire waist. This option boasts a high seam, with fabric falling delicately from it. That creates a sleek look, making this style a must-have for any season. There is a variety of women’s clothing and juniors clothing to sample. Consider dresses, tops, and swimsuits for a complete wardrobe.

The empire waist is a definitive style, with its flowing shapes perfect for every occasion. Choose it for women’s or juniors dresses. Simple constructions featuring fitted bodices and a-line skirts flatter. The high bust-line de-emphasizes hips and raises the appearance of the waist. This creates a slimming effect. These dresses are also sophisticated. Romantic elements (like lace, sheer overlays, or rosettes) bring texture. Rich colors impress. Playful hemlines, such as handkerchief, complete the look. Find pieces from Jessica Howard and others.

Blouses are a closet staple of every woman or junior. Those that are empire waisted, however, replace the typical tunics and tops. These options feature an elegant silhouette, with high bands that cinch along the waist. Hems draw gracefully away from the body and offer movement. Empire tops are also striking. Saturated colors and prints dominate each piece. Accents, like shoulder cut-outs or batwing sleeves, are fun. Pleats and gathers add texture. Choose items from INC International Concepts and others.

The empire look goes far beyond tops and dresses. It’s also found in swimsuits. Sturdy constructions, with high seams and lined interiors, flatters in and out of the water. Fabric falls straight from the bust-line, offering coverage. This combines with adjustable straps and  hooks for swimsuits that survive every day at the beach. These pieces are also bold, however, offering bright colors, animal prints, and ruching. Consider items from Miraclesuit and others.

The empire waist is a go-to option for women or juniors. Dresses are perfect for work or play. Tops add style to any ensemble. Swimsuits make a statement every summer. Find these and other empire pieces (such as coats, jackets, and more) today at Macy’s.
