Every woman can look amazing in a dress if the style is chosen successfully. But among the variety of models can be distinguished outfit that is able to decorate absolutely any female figure - this is a dress with a smell.


In a dress of this style, the front part is divided into two separate elements. One of them is piled on one side from the top to the second, as a result of which a V-like cut is formed at the dress.

Often ties are used to fix the dress on the figure. The length of the models is different, but they consider the classic version to be slightly below the knees. Often the model of such a dress is made in the form of a robe with a smell, but the fabrics for the dress are expensive and beautiful.

A bit of history

The appearance of dresses with the effect of smell associated with Diana von Furstenberg. The idea to create such a model of a dress came from this famous designer in 1973 after she created a top on the smell. Jersey fabric was used for sewing the first dress of the new style. The dress beautifully emphasized the feminine silhouette, did not stop to move and was easily put on. In the first two years, women bought more than five million such outfits.

In 1997, Diana decided to update the dress with the smell. New models began to sew from modern fabrics, their hem was shortened, and the collar was made narrower. The reissued dress also featured interesting prints and updated trim. Nowadays, such models are in demand among women and are found in the wardrobe of many fashionistas.

We also note that similar clothes for women appeared a little earlier. Back in the 40s, Claire McCardell offered American women loose clothing that smelled. The creation of this designer was an outfit of denim, but it was not quite a dress with a smell, as it was worn on top of more elegant clothes.

Who is suitable?

In a dress with a smell effect, any woman looks graceful and attractive. Thanks to the V-shaped neck created by the halves, you can effectively emphasize and slightly lengthen the neck.

In addition, the advantages of such dresses are:

  • Visual contraction of the shoulders.
  • Underline waistline.
  • Improved silhouette (the girl looks taller and more slender).
  • The visual increase in the bust.

With these advantages, the style can be recommended for women with curvaceous, especially if the figure resembles an inverted triangle. If a girl wants to narrow the waist, she should pick a solid outfit and add a belt of the same color with the dress.


The most common of these dresses with the smell:

  • With flared skirt.
  • With an asymmetrical hem.
  • With a pencil skirt.


These dresses belong to casual wear. In a dress with a smell of knitwear, a woman looks very attractive, because such an outfit helps in creating a beautiful silhouette.

Knitwear is draped with ease and helps to emphasize feminine curves. In addition, dresses from this fabric are well washed and do not need ironing.


Dresses with a smell effect are presented by both machine and hand knit. If you tie such a dress with knitting or crocheting, you will get a unique product to your liking. In this case, knitted patterns are summer (from thin cotton), and more dense (from wool and acrylic).

With sleeves

Sleeves in models with a smell are both long and short lengths.There are dresses that have no sleeves at all, but they consider the most attractive products with three-quarter sleeves. Such a sleeve exposes wrists a little, which adds to the image of romance and tenderness.

With drapery

In such dresses, the front part of the product, which is smelling, drapes beautifully. For the manufacture of such outfits used fabrics that can flow and fall down, forming folds and assembly. Most often, these dresses are monotonous (especially blue, red, pink), but there are also products with a print.



This length of the dress with the smell is chosen mainly for special occasions. Particularly luxurious look dresses in the floor of this style in scarlet, silver, ivory, white, burgundy and emerald color.

Summer casual ankle-length dresses are also common. Often, they are decorated with a bright print, such as a flower or cell. Many long dresses of this style are worn with a belt, which is in tint along with or contrasting colors.


The average length is found in models with the smell most often. These dresses are both modest and elegant, and bold and seductive. They can be tied with the use of a monochromatic belt, fastened with a brooch or with the help of a hidden fastener. These dresses are very diverse and may differ in the shape of the neckline, colors, fabric or the presence of sleeves.
