Dresses: They’re awesome! here’s why……
I’m kinda a frock girl, it helps that I worked for the Frock Queen of Queensland for years! (Read more about her here!). My body-shape is also conducive to dresses (hides the bum and thighs, generally shows off the waist – gold!) so they are always a go-to look for me!
So I’m sure you can imagine my delight when it got hot enough over here in NZ to actually WEAR SOME this summer!! And since I am now full into summer dress-wearing mode, I wanted to share with YOU, my lovely readers, why I love them so much!
1. Dresses make it easy to get dressed in the morning!
I HATE trying to match pants (or skirts) and tops! I’m not so good at it (probs shouldn’t admit that as a personal stylist, but hey! We’re all friends here). It takes that little bit more brain power in the morning (something I’m often short of at that time of day) to try and match things together so throw on a dress instead!
All you need to do then is add some fun accessories!
2. Dresses are actually quite versatile!
I’m a MASSIVE fan of having versatile pieces in your wardrobe and dresses are a great base piece to start almost any look. Take this pretty floral dress from Portmans, I’ve styled it just on its own for a summer party by adding a colourful wedge and a bright cuff, but as the weather gets a little cooler, I’ve added a blazer, some tights and ankle boots and voila! An outfit appropriate for work (for most people)
This great little frock from Witchery takes me through from Summer to Winter! It works with light or dark accessories because of the print which adds to the versatility too!
3. Dresses are amazing on curves!
I love dresses because they are often the best thing for showing off my shape! Whether they are waisted (or fitted through the waist) or nice and cute and short, dresses show off my best assets so I always feel good in a frock! (I’m not a fan of mentioning the negative things, but I love shift dresses because they also hide my tummy, which is probs my least favourite body part! eek!!)
Show off killer curves with a fitted frock! There is a dress type out there for every body shape! Remember, it’s all about showing off your good bits!)
So now you’ve seen some of my best dresses (and why I love them!) here are some dresses that I think you guys will love too!
