Favourite Wardrobe Essentials: DressesFriday, November 28, 2014
Whether you’re searching for the perfect wedding guest attire, a new outfit for a birthday bash or a sophisticated number for a works event, dresses are a must.
Instead of spending hours trying to find a top to match a particular skirt or a shirt to match your favourite skinny jeans, a dress is a much easier option.
Bright is better
Those intent on being the belle of the ball will do well to invest in a few brighter options. However, if you prefer a more subtle look then adding colour to an otherwise simple outfit can be easily achieved with the addition of jewellery.
The slip dress
If you prefer a more minimalistic style then you’ll be pleased to learn than monochrome hues are big for 2014. Both black and white slip dresses have been seen adorning the frames of many models on his season’s runways. However, unlike the average slip dress, these particular ensembles boast a chic edge in the shape of metallic accents and sheer panels.
Such elegantly effortless styles are the perfect option for those wishing to invest in a new cocktail dress but when teamed with flats and a jacket can also be worn throughout the day.
The peekaboo dress
From sheer panels to modest cut-outs, the all-new peekaboo dress comes in the form of an off-the-shoulder number – a good option for those who wish to show a little skin in a flattering light.
A simple shiny shift
The simple shift has been revamped for 2014 and now boasts a glossy finish, fringe embellishments and metallic ruffles. When worn with killer heels and statement jewels, this style is the perfect option for a night on the town.
The fuss-free shirt dress
We’re all familiar with the statement white shirt but those with serious fashion-know will also be familiar with the white shirt dress. Instead of tucking your shirt into your jeans, invest in a longer style and wear with a modern wide belt and angular heels. With hair slicked back, this is an ideal option for the office and one that is versatile enough to wear to after work drinks.
