We all know of a friend, or two, who have been guilty of hoarding all the good stuff during the holiday sales. We’ve been raiding her closet since high school and she’s been known to be the group’s fairy fashion godmother ever since. A new year is coming up fast and most of you have their whole social calendar down pat, so why don’t we all take a look at these dresses that are definitely made for conquering the year 2018! With these select pieces, you can cover just about any occasion without running off to someone else’s closet. You can even buy one for you, and one for your fashion-forward friend!
CHLOÉ Crochet Embroidered Denim Dress
This mini shift dress in classic denim blue from See by Chloe lets others take a peek at just the right amount of silky smooth thighs under the same-colored crochet embroidered overlay. While the color captures youthfulness, the ruffled collar says you still know what you want. Wearing this dress to any casual party and even to an innocent date at the park and museum will get you enough brownie points for a much-deserved kiss. Pair this dress with some nude leather sandals and a bright pedicure, or switch to rose-colored suede pumps for a more polished but still laidback look.
SELF-PORTRAIT Lace Dress
Nothing says chic and timeless like lace. Every woman who dons a lace mini with dainty collars shows the world that while she looks innocent, she has her life figured out and still have more to excitingly look forward to. This mesh lace mini with black guipure details from Self-Portrait sends the right message whether you need to go to a party where your boss will be at or a dinner with your boyfriend’s family and friends. The amazing detail on this dress pairs well together with black flats or any classic-colored heels. You can choose to let your sleek and straight hair down or show off your swan-like neck and the exquisite floral detailing with your hair in a bun.
RED VALENTINO Bouquet Print Mini Dress
Whether it is cocktail hour or Sunday brunch with the girlfriends, nothing says you are a girl’s girl and a classy lady in this black satin mini with bouquet print from RED Valentino. The A-line skirt cinches the waist to create a perfect silhouette and the classic round neck gives a conservative look balanced by the high hem. A shiny red clutch would go well with the dress whether it is paired with flats or high heels, and a pair of diamond studs will finish the look.
Party the night away with Self-Portrait’s black one-shoulder guipure dress. With the clothing brand’s signature lace overlay and the dress’ unconventional cut, you can go as flirty or as bold as you like. Show off your collarbone and broad shoulders because this mini says you are in-charge. You can keep your neckline plain or draped with a simple pendant and chain, or go for dazzling drop earrings. Keep the look within the black and nude color scheme by wearing heels in the same color or dare to switch it up with a pop of fun color. This dress is definitely not your basic LBD.
HALSTON HERITAGE flared dress
Stiff as it may sound, any formal event can be made fun with just the right structured dress. You can’t go wrong with this flared silk dress from Halston Heritage. The demi-keyhole neckline hints at just enough skin without calling out for attention. The structured hemline flares to reveal a champagne-colored silk underneath on both sides. The whole look is cheeky while maintaining composure. Wear this to a company event, and you might just get an offer for promotion or bag that client you have been wooing!
