Illusion dresses from Warehouse

The right clothing can work wonders in making the most of your body's best bits, and nothing works better to create killer curves than an illusion dress. With panelled sections down the sides, these midi styles will streamline the silhouette, creating curves where needed (and concealing them when required) and giving the illusion of a taller, sleeker you.

Of course there's only so much a dress can do, so don't expect miracles from a bit of fabric, but if you like styles that flatter and shape, you can't go far wrong with any of these dresses. The strapwork black and grey one also has the added bonus of drawing attention to the waist and bust, drawing the eye in and up.

The dresses are (L-R): Jacquard panel midi dress £50, Animal ponte midi dress £50 and black multi panel dress £75.
