Dresses are a statement of femininity, and one of the best things about wearing a dress is that it’s one simple piece and you’re done.

Whether you are going to a wedding, a cocktail party with your best friends or just shopping, here’s a guide to some of the dresses you should include in your wardrobe when buying dresses online.
Little Black Dress
Every woman needs something in her wardrobe that is timeless and ageless, and nothing beats the little black dress. A little black dress is appropriate for many occasions. Embodying sophistication, simplicity and versatility, the little black dress is sure to save you from those critical unplanned situations. Dressed up with elegant heels and down with functional flats, along with coordinating accessories, you'll definitely find many uses for this ultimate must-have.
Floral dresses are appropriate for a number of situations. Not only are floral dresses suitable for formal occasions such as work or weddings, they can also be worn during the weekend or to a party. Perfect for warm days, a floral dress can be accessorised perfectly with a hat when it’s sunny outside. For your hair, choose to either leave your hair down or create a fancy side braid hairstyle to channel those boho princess vibes in the hot summer.
A midi dress is any type of dress that ends above the ankles but falls below the knees, otherwise known as the mid-calf. The joy in wearing a midi dress is undoubtedly in its versatility. There are various patterns and styles to choose from to fit your body shape, and endless ways to wear a midi dress. Look for midi dresses with side slits and interesting necklines as this will elongate your frame, giving a balanced look.
Maxi dresses aren’t just one of the most flattering and forgiving dresses, they’re also surprisingly wearable for many occasions too. Pair them with wedges in the summer, or for a comfy look with sandals and a denim jacket. The most loveable qualities of a maxi dress include its extreme level of comfort and its ability to stun for both daytime and evening events. Regardless of what your body shape is, there is sure to be a style suited for you.
Summer dresses are staples that can be wheeled out time and time again. These dresses fit comfortably enough that you'll be kept happy in them from dawn 'til dusk, and bring you from day to night with a switch of footwear. They are also perfect for days when you’re rushing but want to still look effortlessly put together. Dress it down with chunky platform flip-flops, or elevate the look with strappy heels and a top handle bag. Go with a material like cotton or linen, and you’ll be kept cool and sweat-stain-free all day.
