Five dress styles that will always be in fashion
Are you looking for a timeless wardrobe that can be dressed up or down, layered and stand out in a crowd? If so, make sure you have at least one of each of these key gorgeous dresses.
Great whether you are a skinny minny or a curvy chick, the skater dress skims your upper body and floats over problem thighs. It can be dressed up with a sparkly belt and killer heels for a cute party frock or worn in the office with flats for a fun take on business chic.
Little black dress
The must-have in any girl’s wardrobe, the little black dress – or dresses if you love them as much as we do here – has had an interesting history and is a versatile dress that comes in many cuts and fabrics. From tie-waisted side-buttoned beauties to sheer sultry senorita styles, the little black dress is the ultimate in glam, particularly if teamed with a pair of sky-high heels and a ruby red pout.
Surprisingly flattering for a dress so figure-hugging, the bodycon dress is one of those magical outfits that can look sophisticated if worn in a muted shade. If you are going for va-va-voom, pick an off-the-shoulder look to give you a beautiful, feminine silhouette.
You will be serving up different looks all year round with a maxi dress. Are you a girly-girl? Throw on a ditsy floral maxi dress with strappy sandals and a cute floppy hat and let your sweet personality shine in the sun. If you like your maxi with a little more edge, team it with chunky boots, a slouchy cardigan and some statement jewellery.
For a show-stopping look, go for sleeves, a huge thigh split and a beautiful floral print from a fashion brand such as axparis.com/collections/maxi-dresses. Team it with some skyscraper nudes for super-long legs.
The perfect dress to take you from work to drinks, the shirt dress is so great at adapting to your individual needs. We love them in stripes, patterns or even just plain. Add a pair of pumps if your workplace is a little more formal; otherwise, a pair of ankle boots and skinny jeans are is ideal if you work somewhere casual.
