Dresses are a woman’s best friend. There is always a dress for every woman, no matter what shape or size. Whether it’s getting ready for an event or some impromptu reservation, women always tend to reach out for dresses to help them put together a gorgeous outfit.
Here are a few dresses which are bound to be in every woman’s dream closet.
1. A- line dresses
A-line dress resembles the shape A and is slimmer at the top but flares out from the waist. Since this dress cinches at your waist, it gives the illusion of a narrow shoulder and a slim waist. You can make them more office appropriate by throwing on a well fitted blazer over it.
You can try shorter lengths or a little longer ones, however make sure that the hemline does not fall below your knees. These dresses balance out your overall silhouette without drawing any attention to your problem areas. Almost all figures look good in an A-line and is a must have in every woman’s closet.
2. Slip dresses
The slip dress is perhaps the most easiest dress to style. It is made of fabrics that has a natural shine like silk, organza and rayon. Let the dress be the showstopper and keep your accessories minimal. The dress by itself is slinky and sexy so let confidence be your best accessory.
Add on some flat sandals and floppy hat for an effortless look. For a more polished look, pair them with killer heels and minimal make-up and you’re sure to turn heads wherever you go.
3. The evening gown
Every woman must own one evening gown, preferably in classic colour styles with a noticeable waistline. They are usually floor length so you don’t have to rack your brains about your footwear since its most likely your shoes aren’t going to show.
The key to styling a evening gown is by pairing it with a gorgeous necklace and statement earrings as the entire focus is going to be on the upper half of your body. These gowns are sure to dazzle the crowd and make them stare at you with awe and admiration.
A LBD is a wardrobe staple every woman should own. Short for little black dress, this piece of clothing can make you look like you shed a few pounds in less than a minute. Black is a colour which has an extremely slimming effect and it can help conceal your problem areas.
Petite women can opt for a shorter hemline while taller women can go for midi ones. You can pair them with sneakers, combat boots or sexy heels. Since the entire dress is of a single colour, don’t hesitate to add some bold statement accessories.
5. Corset dresses
Corsets and bullet bras were quite a rage in the 50’s and the 60’s and they’re back in style in a slightly modern form. Corset dresses are growing in popularity mainly because they help to define your figure as well as give the illusion of a curvy body.
Dresses with underbust corsets are a great way to accentuate your waist and they also help to push up your bust for a more fuller and hourglass shape that every woman desires. These dresses are available in a variety of fabrics like cotton, leather, velvet and satin.
6. Bodycon dresses
This is every woman’s dream dress. Every woman at some point in their lives wants to own a bodycon dress. This is a figure hugging dress which is tight and usually very short and is perfect for times when you feel want to feel sexy and fierce.
Heels can help amp up your look while elongating your silhouette thus making you look slimmer. So, flaunt what you got and let your body do the talking with this dress.
A lesser known fact of these dresses is that it can be worn as a casual, daytime outfit too. Opt for neutral colours and wear them with sneakers and low-key accessories and you’re good to go!
