Dresses are my second skin—I wear one practically every other day—yes, even while working from home (a stretchy tank dress has been my go-to). If you were to take a peek inside my closet, you’ll see it’s comprised of about 75% dresses—arranged by color and print (I’m a tad over-eager when it comes to organizing my frocks) so you can understand that it’s a topic I love to write about often and passionately.
Dresses are the one item in my wardrobe I choose to invest in, as they're a ready-made outfit that'll work for any occasion. So today I wanted to share 11 of the best dress styles that I believe deserve a place in everyone's closet. From versatile black and white hues to beach-ready beauties and pretty prints, if you love dresses as much as I do and are looking to update your collection then take a peek below for the essential frocks that will never let you down.
Whether it's an embroidered beauty or a crisp white cotton midi, a white dress is a wardrobe essential—perfect for the warmer season ahead.
While there are certainly plenty of cool prints out there that can make your outfit standout, floral prints remain a perennial favorite no matter what the season. They can work for casual and formal events, with sneakers or heels, and no matter what length you get a floral print dress will truly never go out of style.
I know this is broad, but every body type suits a different length, and I'm sure there's a length you personally tend to gravitate towards. Since all three lengths are so versatile there's certainly no harm in having one of each on hand for every occasion.
