Recently I noticed a new drape trend that I am find casual and stylish. Of course not all drapes are created equal. Although I find certain pieces stylish, some just look plain slouchy and slightly sloppy. I have gotten couple drape pieces last season and I love how the right drape can nip and tuck all at the right places, especially around the tummy area. ~ smile! I have a few dress that have the most beautiful drape around the abdomen area which hides my bloated stomach at the end of a big dinner!-left Vivienne Westwood --- This looks too slouchy and sloppy for me.
