A stylish dress isn't obvious to find because style is not only found in the cut but also in the way the dress fits your figure. My experience is that it's really difficult to find dresses that fits both criteria i e both cut and fit. (So my basic tip about dresses is, the moment you find a dress that makes you look fabulous, you buy it!)
