In the current trend of athletic wear and pajamas for all occasions, it may seem unnecessary and even socially unacceptable to choose to move your wardrobe in a more chic and trendy direction by selecting women's boutique dresses. But the fact is that modern dresses are just as comfortable as any pajamas, and with just a few accessories and a little styling of the hair and makeup, they can take your everyday appearance to the next level. Women's boutique dresses come in dozens of styles for every occasion, and you can easily begin your collection with these styles I have selected as essential.
Trendy Dresses That Stand the Test of Time
A beautiful boutique dress is an investment, so choose something that you will want to wear for years to come, even if styles change.
Women's dresses in metallic fabrics are a power move, but will they stand the test of time? With the right accessories, the answer could be "yes." Draping, flowing cuts are accentuated by a glossy metallic finish. Choose a shade that isn't too garish or a more subtle pattern to be sure your new dress will stay in style for years to come.
Whether it's for date night with heels and jewels or for daily wear with boots and a denim jacket, the perfect metallic dress is waiting for you to find it and make it yours.
Fancy and feminine, puffed sleeves are a very current look that works with all body types and many dress styles. If you are going for a cute and casual look or something wedding appropriate, the right dress with puffed sleeves can play either way. A boutique dress with long puffed sleeves has enough coverage to look great in winter, yet it is cool and breezy enough to be worn any time of year.
Short skirts are in, but if you are uncomfortable showing too much skin (or if the weather is chilly), never fear--they also work as a tunic over leggings. Style it with sandals to a brunch in July, or with jeans and a shrug for a date night in March.
Cutouts for Artistic Effect
Sometimes a beautiful dress needs something a little edgy, like a strategically placed cutout. But what if you didn't tan your hip? Go ahead and wear it anyway, with some nude or even black shapewear underneath; you will have the same impact of negative space in the dress's outline, but not the risks of showing too much.
Women's Dresses That Are Perfect for Many Occasions
Is it possible to buy one dress that you can style for a wedding, a date night or a trip to the store? The answer is absolutely, with the right accessories. A classy dress can serve many duties for many occasions.
Choosing the right color can greatly improve the versatility of your dress. This doesn't mean you have to stick with neutrals; assess your accessories to find the shades that work best for your current wardrobe.
Maxi dresses in solid colors can be styled for a wide range of occasions by adding a sweater, and never underestimate the power of a solid black dress.
Midi Dresses For All Seasons
A beautiful midi dress can be styled for any weather. With warm fleece leggings and an amazing open coat they can be super cozy on a cold and windy day. But they also look great with sandals and shades for a beautiful, breezy summer look.
The silhouette of a woman in a midi dress is completely iconic, no matter the body type, and will never fail to make an impact.
A Maxi Dress Brings Feminine Charm
Many women are intimidated by maxi dresses, feeling as though they will never have a reason to put on such classic and formal dresses. But in reality, the graceful shape and thorough coverage of a maxi dress is perfect for almost any occasion. In the depths of winter you can pull on your comfiest leggings below the dress and no one will be the wiser; in summer the long skirt is surprisingly breezy, actually creating its own air movement for refreshing circulation when you feel sweaty.
Invest in Your Wardrobe with Boutique Clothing
In this era of fast fashion, it's easy to grab a blouse and leggings from a grocery store and call it a wardrobe choice. But the amazing clothes that you can find at a good boutique clothing store cannot be replicated elsewhere, and will continue to function with excellent durability and timeless beauty for years to come. This is an investment any woman would be wise to consider.
