I am kind of bias to say that cause I looooove dresses. They are like a second skin to me. They are easy to wear, put me at ease wearing them… they are comfy, fun, feminine, stylish, flirty… And sexy. It all depends on the dress mood. They can show my curves, only suggest them or completely hide them without making me look frumpy.
They are no-brainer pieces that can be a whole look just like that. You don’t need to mix and match them with another piece.
Unless you want to add another piece or two to your look, like a cardigan or a coat (and even pants). But other than that, when you pick your dress all you have to do is to figure out which shoes to pair and in which bag to bet. Maybe pick a scarf, jewelry, sunnies or a hat to add some thing extra to your look.
The thing is, with this one piece you can go wherever you need to. Ready. Put together. At ease.
Some people might not even consider a dress because it doesn’t give much room to sport a whole different look every time you wear it since it is that one pre-set piece, a one note kind of style.
But if it is a dress that suits you, your body, the occasion you are heading to, makes you feel comfy and your best version, why do you need to vary that?
Plus, wearing a dress can be one of the elements of your TradeMark Style, that will keep you very much you for you and everyone else.
And yes, you can always pick different accessories, add different pieces or a detail to it, wear a different hairstyle to vary the look. If you want to.
In any case, and because all of that, whenever in doubt, wear a dress.
Of course, it is a good idea to have a basic dress wardrobe to suit different occasions. And even have a dress (or two) that can go from day to night and everything in between.
But you don’t have to have way too many. Just a few for day, a few for night and a few for day to night.
And make sure you have the right set of accessories like bags and shoes to take you anywhere you need to go with them.
Having said all that, of course I know there are some ladies who don’t fancy a dress. And that is totally okay. You don’t have to. This is a suggestion for those who, like me, like to wear a dress.
In another words, this post was my little ode to this piece I love and has kept me stylish even when I completely lost my passion for fashion and my mojo to dress up (or down). And yes, that is a true story. Up to this day I rely on them to keep me going. At ease. Feeling good under my two skins. Looking good and put together. Even when I dress up or down in the automatic pilot.
