Look for: A shift dress with some detailing, whether it’s pleating, darts, a pattern, or a low neckline, to add curves and definition to the figure.

Avoid: Plain styles that are too stiff or loose—or you’ll look as if you’re wearing a paper bag.

To buy: Missoni for Target acrylic-nylon dress, $55, target.com (available September 13).
