Sundresses That Work For Any Body Type, Just Shop Your Shape (PHOTOS)

Sundresses have always been a summer staple, one that every body type can slip on with ease and look just right for any occasion, day or night. While this is perhaps the most versatile and accessible type of hot weather wear, it's good to know which cuts and lengths work best for your figure.

If you're petite like Nicole Richie and Isla Fisher, try a bodice-hugging, flared skirt that falls a little above the knee for a look that'll give you subtle curves. For voluptuous figures like America Ferrera and Amber Riley, a bright sundress with capped or longer sleeves and a round neckline will slim the silhouette while still accentuating all of the best assets. And the sporty or broad-shouldered girls like Hilary Swank and Claire Danes? Wearing a maxi sundress with feminine touches will lengthen your legs and create a streamlined effect for your overall look.

Sundresses are pieces that every girl should own this season. Click through the gallery below to see how different celebrities have worn the look and shop the right style for you.
