Five dress styles and how to wear them
With summer around the corner (honestly, it is) our heads turn to warm breezes and days out. But what to wear for the warmer weather? The simplest option is a dress. For a lot of us though – those of us who love our jeans, leggings and tops, the idea of a dress can seem a bit daunting. There are so many to choose from, where to start? Here we have compiled a list of five dresses that never go out of style, and suit every body type.
This is the most effortless of all the dresses. Perfect for work and for weekends, the shirtdress is as flattering as it is comfortable. The collared neckline adds structure to your top half, and you can choose which length you are most comfortable with. Going from the office to the restaurant? Pull in your waist with a belt and away you go.
The ruched dress.
Ruching and draping is one of fashion’s best-kept secrets for balancing out body frames. With layers and ruches in the right places, these dresses can add curves to slender bodies, and drape beautifully around fuller figures.
The tea dress
A timeless classic, the tea dress is as flattering as it is cute. With a range of sleeve lengths available, the tea dress is perfect for covering up in the sun but still looks summery. The tea dress is tailored, so choose one that nips in at your slimmest point: the A line under the bust, or at your waist.
The maxi dress
Another summer staple, the maxi suits literally everyone. Whether A line, short sleeved, or with a more classic waisted wrap, maxi dresses are a must have for all wardrobes. Patterned or just one block of colour, the maxi dress like these AX Paris maxi dresses once tried, will become your forever summer go to look for summer.
The jersey dress
Keeping it simple with the jersey dress means you can really go to town with accessories. Usually, with the most subtle A line cut, jersey dresses are no muss no fuss. A chic and simple jersey dress, sandals, your best sunglasses, a sun hat and a tote bag – it doesn’t get any simpler than that.
