Must-have dress types for occasions
By Temitope Ojo
When it comes to finding a dress to wear to work or any event, the options are endless. Certain outfits flatter certain body types, weather, and occasions, so it can be overwhelming to try and tackle the choices alone.
Here is our top pick of dress types, for any occasion.
If you’re heading out somewhere and you’re trying to impress, the pencil dress is the one for you. This is one dress that can truly transform your confidence.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Nowadays, mini dresses are far more mini and far less scandalous, and they’re a great way to capture attention. This dress is ideal for anyone who wants to put emphasis on their legs and make the world stop and turn.
The little black dress
Every woman needs a little black dress in her wardrobe because, it truly can get you through pretty much any occasion. From dinner dates to impromptu events, you’ll fall back on it time and time again.
The work dress
While you probably have multiple office-appropriate gowns in your wardrobe, it’s important to have one special dress that is extra-smart and fills you with confidence. Save it for those particularly important meetings or job interviews.
We sometimes get an invitation for a fancy affair and head into panic-mode, frantically trying to find something that will match the dress code. A ball gown or the mermaid silhouette is the perfect dress for a black-tie occasion. If you have an hourglass or pear-shaped figure, opt for the tight-fitting silhouette.
When you’re not in the mood to squeeze into your jeans, slip on a cute denim dress. They come in a wide range of styles, with long sleeves and a button-down front, or a pinafore with pockets. This casual-cool style is effortless, chic, and suitable for many occasions.
Floral midi/maxi dress
Spend the day at the beach or by the pool in a relaxing flirty, floral midi/maxi dress. The style is suited best for a more casual setting. Make the perfect lazy outfit by adding sandals and long-hanging jewelry into the mix, and everyone will wish they were as stylish and comfortable as you are.
