Every woman needs a few staples in her wardrobe. When it comes to dresses, there is always a time and a place for such a garment. Whether you have a job interview, a holiday party, or a formal occasion to attend, the perfect dress will elevate your mood, boost your confidence, and flatter your figure. Here are 6 dresses you need and may want to add to your clothing
Little Black Dress
The LBD is the classic attire for the modern woman. Black naturally looks good on every body type, and when you find the dress that is the right length for your figure, you’ll look unstoppable. Wear an LBD to formal gatherings, social events, or charity fundraisers. Add sass with a colorful pair of shoes, statement jewelry, or an accessory.
You need to make a great first impression, so choose something that emphasizes your best assets (waist, shoulders, legs, etc.) Take into consideration your skin tone, height, and body type. You don’t need to splash out on the dress, but choosing something classic and high-quality will be worth it in the long run.
Now here is a garment that you can have lots of fun with. Be it a community event, school-sponsored occasion, or a work-related social event, choose a dress that is low-key yet fashionable. Here you can play with a variety of hem and necklines, but still keep things fairly conservative. You may opt for a little black dress or spring into color with something brighter. Accessories will really bring this piece to life.
When you are speaking with potential future employers, you need to look your best. Choose something that takes things up a notch from your usual attire. Remember to keep this garment conservative and more on the formal side. Don’t go above the knee for your hem length, and if the dress is sleeveless, be sure to pair it with a cardigan or blazer. Toned-down colors or a neutral palette will work best in a business setting. And watch those necklines! Cleavage is a big office no-no.
Light, sweet, and girly, the white dress is ideal for beachy vacations and summertime. Dressed up or down, you can wear it with sandals, flats, boots, or heels.
This is where you can really experiment! The party dress is what you will wear to cocktail parties, girls’ night out, and any other fun and festive occasion. Feel free to play with different dress styles (maxi, mini, and everything in between.) Do you want to be sweet and sassy, flashy and flirty, or sexy and sleek? There are so many possibilities, but always remember that less is more. Be classy, not trashy!
