What are long dresses?
A long dress can be the wardrobe essential you never knew you needed, but it can be one of the hardest working items in your outfit!
From mid-length to floor skimming maxi dresses, long dresses are here to stay and they’re a style that every woman should embrace. Whether it’s off-duty casual style, a formal event or a summer beach look, a long dress will quickly become a staple piece that you reach for time and time again.
Who should wear long dresses?
Long dresses are not off limits to anybody, any shape or any figure - so don’t be put off or worried about wearing them. Every woman should have at least one long dress in their wardrobe, and they should love wearing them!
Petite women might think a long dress will drown them, but there are still styles that suit and choosing a midi dress might be an easy way to try out the look.
A long style doesn’t have to mean losing your shape, choose a bodycon long dress or a bardot style design to flatter your figure. Or pick a wrap long dress to show off curves, highlight a smaller waist and project more of an hourglass shaped silhouette.
When should I wear long dresses?
Long dresses are a year-round wardrobe essential, and one that you can wear season through season.
You can also make long dress styles work for your workwear wardrobe too. Styled with a blazer or a cropped waistcoat, a long dress can have a different edge that’s perfect for big meetings, easy office style or after work drinks at 5pm.
How should I wear long dresses? What pairs well with long dresses?
Like any dress in your wardrobe, a long dress is all about how you style it! Dressing it up or dressing it down, your long dress can give you so many
different outfits depending on how you accessorise it. Pair yours with bold jewellery and a bright handbag for a colourful style or choose simple and understated gold and silver jewellery for a laidback look.
You can make your long dress work for an easy casual style if you pair it with a leather jacket or a denim jacket, and it makes for an easy chilled look that works with sandals and trainers. Or you can reverse it and wear your long dress with strappy heels, statement earrings and glam makeup for the perfect going out look that will make you feel your best.
