Babydoll dresses at Ana Alcazar.
used to be a female film character from
a Hollywood movie from the 1950’s that would preferably wear light airy
night gowns. The characteristic night gown shape was eventually even named
after the film character and has since been called babydoll. In the early 60’s
the term „babydoll“ merely stood for a light A-shaped chiffon or silk night
gown with matching pants. It didn’t take long, however, until the term was
adopted by the fashion world; today it is predominantly used for rather long tops
or dresses made from very light fabrics with the typical babydoll A-line.
Figure-flattering summer hit – the babydoll dress.
At Ana Alcazar you can find wonderful babydoll dresses, perfect for any figure. The
big advantage about them is that they are very figure-flattering because of
their loose cut and their very light fabrics like silk, chiffon or thin cotton.
No matter if you wear size 10, an average 14 or size 18 –
any type of figure feels just right in babydoll dresses, because there’s
nothing too tight about them and their fabrics gently float around the body. Babydoll dresses often have a romantic,
young and playful connotation but the main thing is knowing how to combine
a babydoll dress properly. With a pair of skinny jeans in hip colours like
grass green or wine red and a rough leather jacket over the dress, a playful
babydoll becomes a highly modern outfit with an incomparable laisser-faire
Babydoll dresses - Where to wear them?
suitable occasions for wearing a babydoll dress are mostly no serious business appointments or festive events like weddings
or anniversaries. In point of fact, the babydoll dress is the perfect dress for
a normal day and leisure time. It’s absolutely laid back and thus can be worn
as a beach dress as well as a casual smock dress on the city beach or on a park
meadow. But don’t confuse babydoll dresses with empire gowns with a similar
cut: the empire dress has a very high waistline and the seam or a
decorative ribbon commences right below the breast (hence creating a wonderful
décolletage and also appearing enormously figure-flattering); a babydoll dress
however, mostly has a ornamented, detached neckline, really as high as the
neck, which the light babydoll fabric is mostly attached to in A-line.
