“There is something about a dress. No other garment carries such a weight of fantasy.” Those are the opening words of the book Fabulous Frocks by Sarah Gristwood & Jane Eastoe, words that all of us here at StyleCracker swear by. Wearing a dress can instantly make us feel pretty and feminine. Some dress styles, like an LBD, are closet staples for every girl.
StyleCracker lists down five styles of dresses that are absolute must-haves this season and we tell you how to wear them for different looks.
Full Skirt Dresses – Fit and Flare is a style that never goes out of trend. Ideal for women with skinny, boyish figures because full skirts create the illusion of curves where there are none. Also, they are feminine and flirty, which is an added advantage. Wear with a denim shirt or vest to add an element of edge to an otherwise girly look.
Maxi Dresses – These easy-breezy dresses are perfect for hot, sticky summer days. Maxi dresses can be worn in several ways. Wear with a blazer for a formal look, wear as is for a romantic boho look and put on a flannel or denim shirt over it if you want to go casual.
Bodycon Dresses – Bodycon dresses are specially designed for the sole purpose of showing off the wearer’s toned curves. Be it a party or a concert, this body-hugging style is ideal for a night about town.
Shirt Dresses – Shirt dresses are all the rage right now and every woman should have one in her closet. This 40s revival style can be carried off well by all body types.
Slip Dresses – This trend is typical of the 90s and will be hanging in every fashionista’s closet this season. Slip dresses are so effortlessly chic that celebrities and fashion bloggers are sporting them left, right and centre. Wear one with a lace trim for added charm and throw on a crisp blazer to complete the look.
