Today I’m going to talk about the dress with a falling waist. For those of you who don’t yet know what it is, it’s basically a skater dress or a flared mini dress with the waist falling below your belly button. The first question you may have is that if you don’t move your waist down, you won’t look shorter.

To better show you how to style it, I’ve put together a list of really great drop waist dress outfit ideas for you. Let’s check it out.
