The #2 item on Tim Gunn’s 10 Essential Pieces is a Day Dress:
“ The Day Dress: This is a dress that you’re probably going to wear to work. It is never intended to be a dress that you would wear to a cocktail party alternative.”
My favorite kind of Day Dress is a sheath dress, it can be worn year round and with or with out a jacket or cardi.
I love this little trendy dress with the peplum dress in one of Spring’s hottest colors. It is a great addition to your wardrobe. I found a new website Simply Be I have yet to order from them but they have some great trendy items in plus size and the prices are not bad.
This hounds-tooth dress is great for the office, can be worn spring, winter or fall. Flattering to almost all shapes, you can get it at Onestopplus.com
Loves this Calvin Kline color block dress, not only does it flatter most shapes the color blocking helps to make you look even slimmer. This dress is available at Macy’s
My other favorite Day Dress is a Wrap Dress. This Dress made iconic by Diane Von Furstenberg, is a perfect dress from a size 0 to a 30+
*Side Note: still a little upset that DVF does not do plus size but I guess I will get over that*
I prefer a true Wrap Dress as apposed to a Mock Wrap Dress, if you go down or up a size your Wrap Dress can be adjusted. If you feel that the Wrap Dress is coming down too low in the front on your cleavage, you can wear a cami under the dress, add a cami that has a little lace on the top to add a little extra to the dress.
Mock Wrap Dress from Igig flattering dress for any shape.
I love a cotton A-Line Wrap Dress, reminds me of the 50’s lol but this is a great dress I have one like this, I had had it about 10 years, and is still holding up, very flattering and forgiving. This one is from Jibri Esty site
I heart this Asymmetric wrap with the soft ruffle, I might try to make something like this. This is also from an Esty seller
I know Wrap Dresses are not the hot style right now but they are CLASSIC and will stand the test of time.
So my Curvy Divas, what Day Dresses do you already own? And what do you plan to add to your closet?
‘Til Next Time
Love Peace and All Things pretty
