When it comes to the way we dress, it’s important to pick items that make us feel good. Throughout the summer season, a collection of dresses can be a lifesaver when it comes to dressing well and comfortably. It’s the season when dresses can shine, so as you think about your summer wardrobe, consider putting together a collection of dresses that make you feel incredible. Here are some things to think about: 

Casual looks for summer outings

When you’re thinking of putting together summer outfits, think about the kinds of dresses that can look great for a number of occasions. Cute, airy summer dresses that can be paired with comfortable shoes like pointed-toe flats or sandals are a great idea for those summer outings that range from lawn concerts to picnics at the park. 

Light floral dresses and cute little rompers are great options for this summer of 2023. Dresses are perfect for feeling fresh when the weather is hot and you don’t feel like wearing too much. 

Put together date night styles

Another type of dress to include in your collection is that perfect date night dress or dresses. A little black dress is that timeless look that never goes out of style, but there are always other options, like cute red dresses with polka dots or strapless tube dresses that fit your body like a glove. 

Either way, make sure your dress makes you feel like a million dollars, because you definitely want to show up on a date looking incredible. 

Buy a couple for the office

While a lot of women like to wear slacks and blouses to the office, there’s something really powerful about a woman in a dress at work. Office wear doesn’t have to be boring. If you love to wear a great dress, shop around for some that work for your career. Consider talking to an image consultant about how you can put together dresses that work well for your work life. Midi dresses are highly popular right now for people who are looking to show up at the office in a feminine and powerful way. 

Express yourself

At the end of the day, your dresses don’t have to be the latest trend or look like what most people are wearing. The best thing you can do when putting together your dress collection is to look for dresses that help you stand out as the person that you are. 

If you decide to work with a personal stylist, you can always let them know how you like to express your style, and they can work with your preferences to put together some great looks that help you stand out. Whether you love bold looks with pizzaz and bright colors or you prefer neutral tones and solid styles, the most important thing when putting together a new wardrobe is to look for the best way to express your personality through your dresses

Think about your style and run with it

You may not love floral patterns, but you’re all about cottage-core looks. Look for those countryside looks that make you feel incredible. You may be into punk rock. Look for those punk dresses that have you showing up in the kind of self-expression that makes you feel good. 

Use fashion apps to browse ideas for your specific preferences so that you can always have something to refer to when shopping around for new looks. After all, clothes shopping can get pricey, and sometimes we end up with looks that we don’t love in our closet.
