From Coco Chanel's inventory masterpiece- little black dress to Marilyn Monroe's infamous moment- dresses have played a part in our history. Well, thanks to social media, some of these iconic dresses are making a comeback, but before you make an impulsive purchase, it is better to know what all is available.
Heart on your sleeves.
Sleeves are the grey area between sugar and spice where you can play unapologetically. It is a statement of your personality and, you can circle within the boundary of the theme and its decorums. Thus, it should be the first thing to look for in a dress. Depending on the occasion, you can choose long sleeves for professional commitments and respectful gatherings or sleeveless for date night or casual outings. You can also experiment with lantern sleeves or flaps and cuts to level up the game a bit.
A dress is more than just the fit.
From the dress' cut to the collar, everything should come together at the end, to give you your desired look. You can go for the classic A-line and add a turtle neck to it. A vintage cocktail dress can be made a little daring by adding a deep V-neck and, the possibilities of shuffling are limitless. A flared midi or a maxi-dress for a luncheon can be made interesting by adding some pockets to hold your phone and purse. A maxi-kimono dress can look chic with a pair of lantern sleeves.
The color of the dress.
You can be innovative and add different colored sleeves for creating a mixed look. You can also try on printed dresses and play with animal prints to hues to hand-paints. Always look for inspiration or try curating a mood board that will help you decide what you would want because the options are endless and, the choice is entirely yours.
