Drop waist dresses: A Timeless Trend Reimagined

A silhouette straight out of the speakeasies, the drop-waist dress is having a major moment in 2024. Defined by a waistline that sits lower on the hips rather than the natural waist, this style creates a lengthening effect, flattering many body types. 

The cycle of a trend

The drop-waist dress first gained popularity in the 1920s, a time known for its liberation and experimentation in fashion. Defined by a waistline that dips below the natural waist, often to the hips, these dresses created a long and lean silhouette that mirrored the spirit of the era.

Fast forward to 2024, and the drop-waist dress returns with a contemporary update. Spearheaded by the likes of Maison Margiela, Schiaparelli, Khaite, drop-waist dresses have had a huge presence during fashion weeks around the world from New York to Paris for Spring/Summer 2024. Designers are having fun experimenting with details like puff sleeves, bold prints, and contrasting textures, offering a variety of options to suit different tastes.

The drop waist dress has continuously evolved, adapting to modern sensibilities. This adaptability allows the dress to seamlessly transition from a casual brunch to a glamorous evening soiree. It remains a non-conformist dream—a timeless classic that continues to stand out in an ever-changing wardrobe of the world.

Our picks and styling ideas

Whether you're a vintage enthusiast or simply drawn to timeless elegance, the drop-waist dress is a must-have for your summer wardrobe.

If you’re also taken by the timelessness of this trend and looking for some additions to your wardrobe, here are our picks along with ideas to style them.

Mystery and extravagance

Rania dress with its asymmetrical necklace brings the eye to the woman's graceful neck and sun kissed shoulders. A symphony of contrasts ensues: black on top with gold silk cascades along the skirt, crafting a touch of playfulness entwined with elegance.

We recommend an outfit that evokes summer extravagance, perfect for those who seek  a bold statement. The scarf hat with its flowing fabric adds a bohemian flair and creates a captivating visual interest against the dress. The playful jug bag, crafted in black raffia, makes a beautiful artisanal highlight. Finally, a delicate black rose charm as a choker and statement golden hoop earrings adds a touch of romantic femininity. 


Minimalist white

Crafted from lightweight bamboo cotton in a soft white hue and a drop waist, L'amant dress captures the romance with its subtle details. The waist can be tightened to highlight the silhouette with its own band or a skinny belt.

Channel breezy summer vibes with this effortlessly chic ensemble. Top the L’amant dress off with a classic boater hat from raffia, with the string adding a playful touch. For a touch of natural elegance, put on a pair of round raffia earrings that complement the woven texture of the hat. Finally, elevate the look with a pair of heeled sandals.


Strapless romance

Maia silk dress brings sophistication with a hint of wild charm. The skirt flares gently from the fitted bodice, skimming your curves with a flattering silhouette. This dress is perfect for turning heads at a summer soirée, striking the perfect balance between sophistication and a touch of untamed allure.

We love this ensemble for its feminine beauty with a touch of natural, artisanal charm. The wide downturn brim raffia hat adds a touch of mystery and elegance, framing your face beautifully. The white rose choker elevates the look with a touch of romantic femininity, in a beautiful harmony with the bag made from silk and raffia.
