Dress Style


6 Essential Dresses Each Women Should Have In Her Wardrobe

When you don't have the energy or desire to put effort into what you wear, reaching into your closet for a dress can solve all of your problems. You won't have to rummage through your closet for something to pair with your favourite pair of go-to jeans, and you'll still look effortlessly stylish. 

Even if you prefer pants to skirts and dresses, you should keep a few pieces in the back of your closet for those days when you really need them.

1. Maxi dress

The notion that only tall women can pull off maxi dresses is unquestionably false. Maxi dresses work on an individual basis, so don't rule yourself out if you're on the shorter side. 

I recommend that you give it a shot and find something that flatters your figure. I think maxi dresses are especially flattering on people who are heavier on the bottom half of their bodies!

2. Casual floral dresses

I'd be surprised if you don't already own a floral dress, but if you don't, go out and get one! You'll be sorry if you don't have one when it's a hot summer day or date night and you're stressed about what to wear. 

Plus, I've yet to meet someone who doesn't look good in floral. Seriously, it looks great on everyone!

3. Black party dress

And, of course, a closet isn't complete without a little black dress, right? I recommend purchasing something simple and elegant that can be worn from day to night, from a casual event to a more formal occasion. When you're in a hurry, you need something you can work with!

4. Long sleeved dress

A lot of formal and semi-formal events take place during the winter season or on extremely cold days, so you'll need something with a little more material and length in those cases. 

And, most of the time, wearing cardigans or throw-overs detracts from the overall look, which is why long-sleeved dresses are useful!

5. Work appropriate dress

If you work in an office that requires business or business casual attire, you should stock up on several work-appropriate dresses, especially during the summer when it is too hot to wear pants. Choose pieces that reach below your fingertips while not revealing too much.

6. Tee shirt dresses

Tee shirt dresses have recently made a comeback, and we couldn't be happier! They're extremely comfortable, simple to style, and, most importantly, versatile. 

You can literally pair them with sneakers, flats, sandals, or even heels, as well as other accessories, and each look will be completely unique. It's unquestionably a collectable!
