It wasn't sequins or any ornately embellished dress that caught our attention, but when Jennifer Lawrence stepped out in NYC last night, we couldn't help but take note of her simple, yet sexy tank dress. The Altuzarra dress Miss Lawrence chose for her appearance on David Letterman was styled up with a few key accessories, making it a perfect how-to in dressing up any other little dress with the same tank dress silhouette and body-con fit.
- The key is choosing a tank dress that flatters your shape. Balance out your bottom half with a scoop neck, or flaunt your toned lower half in a shorter hemline. In any case, any added shape-wear underneath your dress will help to sculpt and slim your frame if you choose.
- While a tank dress isn't exactly typical event wear, Jennifer elevates hers — and defines her waist — with a sleek leather belt in a complimentary color.
- Lastly, do as Jennifer does and go for leg-elongating platforms, heels, or wedges. Forgoing the flats with help dress you up, and give you a longer line from head-to-toe, making you appear taller and thinner.
