5 Types of Dresses Every Woman Should Own

The best of the best

The Denim Dress

Depending on your style and shape, this could mean a shirt, pinafore or basic tee design.

The Slip Dress

Layer your slip over your favourite white t-shirt or amp up the glam à la Amber Heard in The Row – just add heels. Worried that the cut won’t work for your figure? Opt for a wrapped version that nips in at the waist and more forgiving matte fabric – Marc Jacobs, Tome and DVF have some great options.

The Shirt Dress

Take your structured shirt dress from the office to Friday drinks with statement jewels and a pair of pumps a la Olivia Palermo in Dior. 


Ladies, let this failsafe look work for you! For an of-the-moment update take your cues from Margot Robbie in Ellie Saab by embracing the cold-shoulder trend.

The Wrap Dress

Fun, flirty and flattering. This feel-good dress is made for long lunches and hot summer nights. Simply add strappy sandals like Sophia Bush in Reformation dress and Stuart Weitzman heels and you’re set.
