Style Guide: Women’s Dresses

No doubt an essential in any female’s wardrobe, a women’s dress can instantly transform your look with its versatile colours, cut and fabrication. From the classic LBD, to the flirty summery style, there are a vast assortment of fashionable dress styles out there. You can find dresses in a variety of styles and colours that can help you accentuate your personal style, as well as highlight your best assets and disguise the ones you’re not so proud of. It’s all about knowing what you want and find a dress that has the details that match that.

From elegant maxi to dressy cocktail dresses, the classic LBD (little black dress) to casual tunic and sweater dresses – there is something for everyone, no matter body shape, size, personal style or age!

If you’re not much of a frock-gal but want to benefit from the chicness of wearing one, then you’ll find plenty of dress style alternatives that are more toned-down, sophisticated & professional, or even casual.

Must-have ladies dresses include:

Black Cocktail Dress:

The little black dress, also known as “The LBD” – is one of your wardrobe indispensables that can be transformed into multiple looks for various occasions.

Formal Evening Gowns:

If you’re attending a formal social function, then a gown is most likely a part of the dress code. Invest in a style that accents all your best features and stick to a classic solid colour choice in a luscious silk or chiffon.

The Red Cocktail Dress:

A sexier variation to the LBD (little black dress), a red cocktail dress can turn heads and boost your confidence instantly! Think sophisticated fabrics with appropriate necklines and hem.  If you choose a red dress with a low neckline, try a midi or maxi hem length. If you are wearing a high neck style, feel free to show off your killer legs!

A Feminine Lace Dress:

A black lace dress is sexy, seductive – and definitely a style essential all year round, but white and cream lace are gorgeous for those hot summery days, outdoor parties or festivals.

Keep accessories neutral, to let the feminine lace stand out. Try pastel jewels or nude heels for the perfect addition.

The Wrap Dress:

A wrap dress is a closet classic that flatters almost all body figures. It helps define and also create a thinner waistline.

Very office-chic friendly and a wardrobe essential if you want to wear a feminine yet sophisticated attire for work.

The Maxi Dress:

You don’t have to wear mini skirts and short dresses to look stylish. A longer hemmed dress exudes elegance and the best part? It is totally flattering! We love maxi dresses that accent the waist with a waist tie to add curves to your dress, or side splits for a sexy touch.

Flirty Summer Dress:

A flirty and feminine women;s dress is an essential for any chic girls wardrobe! Try a feminine white, or go bold with eye-popping summer colours and statement floral or botanical prints.
