What kind of garment is a dress?

A dress is one of the most popular and versatile items of women's clothing. It can be a short mini dress, a mid-length midi dress, or an ankle-length maxi dress. Dresses come in both patterned and plain colours. There are models to suit every style and occasion: from fitted styles to loose casual dress options.

Dresses are a favourite for both everyday and formal wear. The best dresses can even be adapted for both occasions just by changing accessories.

How do I find the right dress for me?

There is a wide range of women's dresses available and choosing the right one can sometimes be a challenge. There are a few things to consider when choosing the right dress.

The first is the occasion. Is it a formal occasion? A wedding? Or a more casual gathering of friends? The nature of the occasion will somewhat limit your options.

Next, consider your own style. What kind of dresses do you usually feel most comfortable in? Do you prefer a fitted or looser fitting dress? Consider both your body type and your personal taste when making your choice.

The weather and the time of year also play a part in determining your choice of dress. If it's a warm day, go for a lighter fabric such as cotton or linen. If it's cooler outside, choose a dress with long sleeves or thicker material.

Comfort is the number one consideration when shopping for a dress. Choose materials that feel good on you and don't restrict your movement too much. And remember - whatever you choose, as long as you feel confident and comfortable in your dress, you'll look great!

What kind of dress suits my body type?

It can be difficult to know what kind of dress is best for your body type, as there are so many different styles and designs available. Here are some tips on how to find the perfect dress for your body shape.

The idea behind dressing for your body type is to highlight the best parts of your body. Traditionally, body types are divided into five categories: A-shape, also known as the pear (smaller upper body and curvier hips), O-shape or apple (rounded midsection but often with leaner legs), X-shape or hourglass (lower and upper body are the same size and the waist is narrower), Y-shape (broader shoulders and narrow hips) and H-shape (fairly straight with no particular emphasis on the waist).

For the A-shape, a knee-length dress or an ankle-length dress is suitable. A mid-calf hem may undesirably accentuate the widest part of the legs. Good styles include A-line dresses or wrap dresses. A boat neckline is a flattering option. You can also try a dress with ruffles or pleats at the top. Or try pairing the dress with a short jacket to add volume to the top and take the attention away from the hips.

The typical apple body has narrow legs, slim ankles and wrists. The apple-shaped dresser often wants to add a little shape to the waist. An O-body looks beautiful in a dress that reveals the wrists or legs and gives shape to the waist, such as a wrap dress. An empire-line dress can also be a good choice.

If you have an hourglass figure, try a wrap dress that nicely accentuates the waist. Fitted dresses also work beautifully with the X-shape, and they're great for accentuating body shapes. For the Y-shape, V-necks are flattering to balance out the shoulders. For the H-body type, a belt or bell hem, for example, can add shape to the body.

As the name suggests, the dress recommendations for each body type are only recommendations. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable in your dress and find one that suits your unique style and personality.

How to combine the dress with other clothes?

A dress is the chameleon of your wardrobe and can be paired in countless ways with different outfits. What you choose to wear with a dress depends on the design and style of the dress, the nature of the occasion and of course your own taste. For example, you can try the following combinations:

You can throw on a cardigan, sweater or jacket for warmth. Shorter style jackets are the easiest to combine with a dress, but long jackets will also work, as long as you keep in mind the length of the skirt. For a more relaxed look, try pairing a denim jacket or leather jacket with a dress.

Pantyhose are of course a natural pair for the dress, but for a trendy look, try wearing straight or wide-leg trousers or casual jeans with the dress. For a party, heels or sandals are a good choice. For a more casual look, you can choose comfortable sneakers or chunky flats to go with the dress.

You can change the look of the dress from occasion to occasion by changing the accessories. Try pairing it with different scarves, jewellery or bags to boldly create different styles. Choose clothes and accessories to match the dress, either tone to tone, or play with contrasts.
