Pretty dresses are a surefire way to elevate your look. Whether you’re attending an event or just want to up your day-to-day style, a pretty dress is a perfect choice.

But what is the perfect dress for you?

Let’s break down the different styles and how to choose the perfect one or two for you.

Consider Your Occasion

The first thing to consider when selecting a pretty dress is the occasion.

If you’re attending a formal event, it may be best to go with formal dresses such as a wrap dress, maxi dress, or sheath dress.

These styles are timeless and can easily be dressed up or down depending on the situation.

For more casual events, wear something less structured such as an A-line shift or an off-the-shoulder style for a fun and flirty look with cute dresses!

Think About Comfort

When shopping for pretty dresses, comfort should always be top of mind.

After all, if you don’t feel comfortable in your outfit then it’s not going to look great either!

Consider fabrics that have some give like jersey knit or cotton blends so that they won’t restrict your movements throughout the day (or night).

Also, think about colors and prints that will flatter your figure to enhance your best features.

Finally, make sure you select something in the right size so that it fits properly and looks good on you!

If you must have it even though the fit isn't perfect, a good tailor should be on your speed dial!
