5 dresses literally every woman should own


Trends come and go, but there are some classic pieces like dresses that never go out of style. Dresses are not only timeless pieces of clothing, they are even more a statement of femininity. Now and forever dresses are a staple in our wardrobe – either you are going to a party, shopping or to work, a dress will always work for you. No matter where the winds of fashion change take us, here are 5  dress styles that we 3 can’t get by without.

There are so many incredible dresses out there and to be honest we all have much more than 5 dresses in our wardrobes. But let’s face it, we really don’t need fifteen different dresses. Instead, we could (we don’t have to) minimize our choice to only 5 classics. So let’s try it. Here, we break down the five types of  dresses every shopper should try to get their hands on:

1. A Black Dress

A mini, midi or long black dress – the choice is yours. No matter  which one you decide to wear, the black dress will always be your life saver. Why? Because when wearing a black dress, you are dressed for every occasion without fuss or quibble. Once Karl Lagerfeld said:

“One is never overdressed or underdressed with a little black dress.”

And we know that he’s right. This dress is extremely versatile and you can wear it everywhere and to every occassion.

How to Wear Black Dresses ?

Like I said before, you can pretty much do whatever you want with a black dress, it only depends on where you want to wear it.

A Day in the Office

If you’re wearing your dress to the office, keep it simple—layer on a blazer and wear black pumps Attention: The heel should not be to high.

To a Party

Ensure all eyes are on you with a pair of crazy sandals when you wear a black dress to a party. For added drama go all in on the accessories.

Casual Sunday

It is allowed to wear a black dress in a casual way. In this case opt for sneakers, a cool jacket and add a twist with some sunnies.

2. A Floral Dress

Floral dresses are the epitome of beauty and romanticism. From office-ready shirt dresses to evening slips and  midis, the varieties are almost as endless as our love for them. Whether it is summer or winter, a floral dress is the one you can wear over and over with different layers and accessories for unique looks!

3. A Wrap Dress

You should know there’s one dress that you should put in your closet soon: the wrap dress – the iconic piece created by Diane Von Furstenberg. The history of the wrap dress dates back to 1973 when she designed the first one, which instantly became a part of high fashion clothing. The reason why you immediately need one is simple: A wrap dress gives you a natural hourglass look by lifting the line of your silhouette cleverly.

For a casual vibe, wear the dress with a pair of sneakers or dress it up with heeled sandals for a warm summer night. In winter opt for some sock boots. Whether you decide to wear it, with a pair of sporty shoes or heels, this dress will take you from day to night.

4. A White Dress

In my humble opinion, the white dress is the most important dress in every wardrobe when the weather begins to be warmer. To be precise, the white dress is actually the synonym for summer.

The white dress can be feminine and flowing or chic with straight cuts. With the right accessories the  white dress can be transformed into whatever you need it to be.

Wear it with a straw hat to achieve the maritime look, with a jeans jacket when it gets colder in the evening or add some embellished or bright sandals to the outfit when you dress  for a cocktail party.
