Types of Dresses Every Woman Should Own

By August 21, 2020January 15th, 20212 Comments

Even women who prefer wearing pants on an everyday basis will agree that having a couple of dresses in their wardrobe is an absolute necessity. This is because dresses have a way of bringing out your feminine and flirty side. Moreover, for some occasions, parents would not be as appropriate as dresses would be. And because there are so many dresses that come in so many styles and designs, choosing the perfect one for you can be quite a challenging task. With that in mind, I have put together 7 superb types of dresses that every woman should absolutely own.

Little black dress

You’ve probably heard it a thousand times but the fact still remains – the little black dress is a must-have in every woman’s wardrobe. Because it is both classic and timeless, this dress can get you through pretty much occasion.

Because it comes in so many styles, it can be worn to work, dinner dates and impromptu events. In fact, when in doubt on what to wear, the little black dress should be what you choose. All you have to do is choose what works best for your body type.

Maxi dress

What would be summer or sunny day without maxi dresses? This dress is almost perfect for all occasions when the sun is out and shining. It can be worn to the beach, for a picnic and even to church! It’s even perfect for when you finally meet your partner’s parents.

Shirt dress

The shirt dress was first introduced by Coco Chanel who transformed an ordinary men’s shirt into an elegant piece of women’s clothing. This type of dress can be worn both as a day outfit or in the evening. Moreover, you can dress it up for the office or wear it with skinny jeans.

An A-line dress

The A-line dress is a simple loose-fitting dress that is narrower at the top and then flares gently toward the hemline. Such dresses are best to bring out your feminine silhouette and streamline your body. If you have a narrow lower body, this dress is perfect for you because it gives the illusion of a proportional body.

A floor-length evening gown

You might rarely pull a floor-length evening gown out, but you’ll want to own one for special occasions. You can wear such a dress to any formal event, like a wedding, celebration, or official reception starting after 7 p.m.

The flirty floral dress

This is another must have dress for every woman especially when the sun is out sshining. Find one that flatters your frame or shows off your best assets and wear it with flats or heels.

Denim dress

A denim dress is one of those classic wardrobe staples that never seems to go out of style. And there’s a good reason for that. It’s one of the most versatile pieces that you can have in your closet because it comes in a variety of styles that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

    Hi Catherine, I absolutely love your style.

    Can you please tell me if you don’t mind the size of the Karen miller black dress you are wearing in this post? I want to buy it but I want to know if the sizing runs true or smaller.

    Thank you so much.
