If you don’t have time to build a sophisticated outfit, you can always count on a dress to look flawless without putting too much effort into it.
Dresses are comfortable to wear, and with the right accessories, they can be worn on different types of occasions. While dresses can come in numerous shapes, colors and cuts, there are some staple pieces that every woman should own.
1. a Little Black Dress
This is a must have piece for any woman, regardless of her personal style. The little black dress is one of the most versatile pieces that you can own. If you can’t afford to own several little black dresses, we advise you to invest in one with a simple cut, which can be worn both in the evening and during the day.
2. a Black Maxi Dress
For those moments when your legs are not exactly in top shape, you can count on a black maxi dress as an alternative to the little black dress. This type of dress is also very versatile, and it can be worn on different occasions, as long as you accessorize it properly. However, be careful with the shoes that you choose, as you don’t want your ankles to show, nor do you want the dress to hang on the floor. With maxi dresses, you want the hem to gently brush the floor.
3. an Office Dress
Whether you have an important meeting, or it is just another day at the office, a work dress is essential if you want to look professional and stylish at the same time. When it comes to work dresses, we advise you to choose a below the knee length. Obviously enough, the work dress shouldn’t be revealing or tight, and it should be made of a quality fabric such as tweed. Tartan can also work, as long as you opt for dark colors like black, gray or navy.
4. a White Summer Dress
There is no better way to show off your tan than with a flowy white dress. For casual looks, opt for an A-line or a baby doll cut. If you are looking for something that stands out more, consider laser cuts or ruffles, both of which are very trendy this year. On the other hand, if you are looking for something classier, opt for a mid-length slim dress. Furthermore, always remember, that no matter the occasion, the perfect accessory for a white dress is a red lipstick.
5. a Floral Dress
No matter how hot it is outside, it doesn’t really feel like summer until you take out your floral dress. This type of dress can be worn at any time of the day or the night. It is perfect for picnics, barbeques, cocktail parties or even a simple stroll in the part. Like it goes with most dresses, it is usually the shoes that influence the overall look of a floral dress. Wear it with flats for a casual day look, and with high heels for a sexy evening look.
6. a Sequin Dresses
Sequins are seriously hot this year, and you will be seeing a lot of them in your favorite shops. While this year it is acceptable to wear sequins during the day, if you want to make a smart investment, opt for an elegant maxi sequin dress, maybe with a side slit or a deep V cleavage. Go for that Old Hollywood glam look which never seems to go out of style. Just make sure the dress is not overly revealing, as you don’t want to achieve a Jessica Rabbit kind of look.
7. a Gorgeous Red Dress
For those moments when you really want to stand out, you can always count on a red dress. Whether you choose a playful look with a short, loose red dress, or you are going for a femme fatale look with a bodycon, you can always count on red to look flawless and confident.
