There is almost nothing better than being able to get up and throw on one classic piece that is easy, comfortable and always in style. The piece we are talking about is: The Dress. Dresses that you can wear casually or dress up for an evening out is something every woman should have in her arsenal. If you are ready to add a timeless dress to your wardrobe and talk about the different ways you can style it, then you have come to the right place. We have narrowed it down to our 5 favorite dress silhouettes from designers like Misa Los Angeles and Karina Grimaldi that you will be able to wear forever.
The Little White Dress
The little white dress is the summer-y update on the classic little black dress we all know and love. The lightweight cotton fabric is perfect for the heat but can easily be layered when the weather gets a little bit crisper in the Fall. We chose to style this shirt dress with a skinny belt, to enhance your figure, and a modern utilitarian cross body bag. Top off your look with a fun floral face mask, some pop color slides, and micro hoops for a fresh look you can wear any day of the week.
The Slip Dress
Sexy and free flowing, the slip dress is a sensuous stunner your wardrobe will thank you for. This gorgeous red hot slip dress from Alice + Olivia adds a vibrant pop of color and can be dressed up or down depending on your mood. We paired this silky midi dress with a leather jacket and black pumps for a fun rocker vibe. Then we added silver tiered earrings, a matching clutch and black face mask to complete the jaw dropping look. You can easily switch the pumps for a pair of chunky black boots for a more edgy, grunge vibe as well.
The Square Neckline
The square neckline delicately highlights the shoulders and décolletage giving off a feminine, look while the midi length adds a dash of modern flare. You can easily throw this dress on with some sandals and go for an easy, elegant outfit. If you want to style it out a bit, we chose to pair it with a zebra print denim jacket for a fun mix of textures and some sleek pink heels. We then finished off the look with a matching face mask, silver hoop earrings and cross body bag. The end result is a contemporary look that is both chic and easy-to-wear.
The Wrap Dress
The wrap dress is a classic silhouette that you will be able to wear on repeat for years to come. The wrap tie closure enhances your waist and is super flattering on all body types. The plunging v-neckline with ruffles is both flirty and feminine. We paired this floral mini wrap dress by Misa Los Angeles with strappy sandals and a delicate gold fan necklace. Then, added a neutral cross body bag, pink face mask and some tortoise shell sunnies. You can easily take this look out for when you are running errands or grabbing some coffee with your friends. Then, switch your sandals for some heels and voila your daytime look just turned into a night out ensemble. We do love versatility.
The A-Line Dress
The A-Line Dress is more fitted at the neck and bust area and then gradually widens towards the hem. The result is a flowing playful silhouette that can be worn any season of the year. When styling this dress, we decided to play with shape by layering it with a boxy blazer. Then, we added a pair of pink booties, matching face mask and silver figarro chain link necklace. The look is classic with a sleek modern twist.
