Casual dresses should be a staple of every woman's wardrobe. With so many styles and designs, you are sure to find ones that perfectly suit your shape and look very flattering. One of the great things about casual dresses is the fact that they can be styled in so many different ways with accessories, so one dress can go from the office to happy hour to out for a nice meal in the evening. If you're planning on shopping for casual dresses in the near future, use the following tips:
Look Polished in a Sheath Dress
A linen sheath dress is the perfect thing to wear during the week. The classic lines of a sheath dress create a very polished look and sheath dresses look great in solid colors or small prints. Top a sheath dress with a cardigan or blazer during the work day; in the evening take off your jacket, and add a belt and some high heels for a festive look appropriate for almost any occasion.
Relax in Knit Dress
A flowing knit dress is ideal when you want to look nice but also want to feel comfortable. Knit dresses that are wrap-style or A-line tend to be universally flattering to almost all figures. One thing to remember when buying a knit dress is to choose one that skims over your body instead of clinging to it-- knit dresses tend to look better when they are not too tight. Knit dresses look great in solid colors, just make sure to buy a dress with a color that compliments your skin tone.
Break Out the Sundresses in the Summer
When the temperature rises, sundresses become the perfect uniform for the summer. Each season sundresses can usually be found in fun patterns so consider buying a few bright floral print dresses or one with a bold geometric design. One of the great things about sundresses is that they can be as casual or as polished as you want them to be. Depending on your hair style, makeup, shoes and accessories, you can wear a sundress to the pool one day and wear the same dress the following week to go out on a date.
For comfort and style, maxi dresses are an excellent choice. Like knit dresses, it is important to choose maxi dresses that are fitted but not tight. If you feel like a maxi dress does not give you enough shape, consider adding a belt to give definition to your waist.
