Whenever we go out with family or hang out with friends, what is the first thing that us girls comment on? ‘’OMG, I LOVE WHAT YOU ARE WEARING!’’, ‘’WHERE DID YOU GET THAT DRESS FROM GIRLLL?’’. From our hair to our shoes, everything is seen, focused on and complemented by our girlfriends. Even our Instagram comments consist of remarks related to our attire by people. Thus, you should always dress well and have a variety of outfits in your wardrobe; be it from cocktail dresses online to nearby shops.

A big misconception that comes with dressing up and being clad in trendy, chic clothes is that is it very expensive. This is partially the truth and not an exaggerated fact. However, this is not always the case. If you have the correct sense of style, a good eye, the ability to mix and match, you can create a wonderful outfit. What helps more is knowing a series of about 5 dresses that are perfect for any occasion. This way, you can use one outfit in a lot of ways, and it won’t be very expensive. Like you wear the same pair of skinny jeans for a number of different occasions, you can go with dresses too. Just have the essential types of dresses. Here are the types that are perfect for any occasion.


Every girl has a princess inside of her, be it very out there or consumed in a hidden corner of you. We all have wanted to wear elaborate princes gowns embellished with sequins, a big flair, beads and pearls. All of us have imagined ourselves twirling around in those especially after watching ‘’Barbie and the 12 dancing princesses’’. 

To fulfill your dreams, you must have a floor-length gown in your wardrobe. They might not be the exact replica of your childhood princess gown, but it is its adult version. Floor-length gowns are a must-have for formal events in your wardrobe. They will help you a lot if you need to attend an elaborate ball, a party with a masquerade theme, a wedding and so on. Floor-length gowns come in a range of varieties. They don’t always have to be over the top. You can find them in plain chiffon that gives your dress a very smooth fall. You can also have one in sequins from head to toe that make your gown one of its kind. You can also find them in silk. Floor-length gowns are perfect for your long lost princess dreams.


Trust me when I say that you are not a woman of the 21st century if you don’t own a cocktail dress. You cannot survive without one. It is the most commonly sold type of dress for women out there. What defines a cocktail dress is that of a typical dress that is much shorter and finishes up the knees. It is made to be worn at evening events and functions; be it be a party at the bar or someone’s house. Cocktail dresses give you a very chic, trendy and elegant look. 

They, too, come in many different sizes and types. You can find the typical kind with a short dress in black. Then you can also find a slightly embellished one studded with lace or sequin. Your dress can have full sleeves, off shoulder or sleeveless. It may be of a figure-hugging fitting or may have a slight flair to it. the point is, you can never go wrong with cocktail dresses.


The chic-est of them all (yes, that is not a word, but nothing explains sheath dresses more perfectly). You see those magazine ladies with their hair wrapped in a bun, wearing a pair of shades and strutting around in stilettos wearing a beautiful figure-hugging dress? Yes, that is a sheath dress!

Sheath dresses are a class apart. They are fitted and a straight cut dress that hugs your waist and gives it a very slim and slender look. Sheath dresses are perfect for any and every formal function. Be it a business event or a mere social event like a tea party with your ladies, and sheath dresses are perfect for every event and occasion. Their seamless waist is perfect for every body type. It can be paired with accessories beautifully and can be worn in both; summers and winters.


Cocktail dresses, sheath dresses and floor-length gowns are towards a formal and much more serious side. To look towards a much more relaxed outfit is where summer dresses come in. In summers, most of us opt for a much more relaxed and casual look. The days are too hot and sweaty to be wearing a figure-hugging sheath dress or a floor-length gown that covers 80% of your body. You need a light and breezy dress for the scorching summer heat, but you also want it to be equally trendy and stylish. So, the best solution is to have summer dresses.

Summer dresses are  light and flowy. They are loose-fitting and made of cotton. Cotton is a breathable material that doesn’t cling to your body. It lets air through so that you can feel relaxed. Summer dresses come in a lot of different cuts and styles. They may be floor-length or knee-length. They might also have a thigh slit situation going on. Summer dresses can be equally trendy too. They might have a halter neck or be off-shoulder. Summer dresses usually come in very light colors like blue, white, yellow, light green and different prints like floral, abstract patterns, polka dots, stripes, and so on. They are perfect for pretty much every summer event. Pair it with a relaxed ponytail, bracelets, necklaces and a satchel bag. Wear wedges or sandals underneath. You can also wear gladiator sandals to give it a posh look. Wear light makeup and let your outfit shine.


All of these ideas might cost you a little bit but know that it would be a one-time investment. These outfits are very easy to find and can be worn in a lot of different styles. Change your hairstyles, your jewelry, your shoes. Switch between heels, sneakers, loafers, boots. Your makeup looks. Go out with a bold lip one day, and a light lip balm look the other: mix and match. Accessorize with belts, coats, mufflers, bags. Create a masterpiece. Make your outfit one of its kind and carry it well. Let it shine for you. All the best of luck to you.
