If dresses aren’t your thing, no problem. But if you enjoy wearing dresses, adding a few more can simplify getting dressed each day. This same trick works for jumpsuits.
One Item Look
Make no mistake, separates can massively expand your wardrobe by empowering you to mix and match pieces to create a variety of outfits. However, this can leave you trying on multiple tops and bottoms each morning when you get ready. With a dress, all you must do is layer with a jacket, blazer, or sweater—and accessories. This method of getting dressed also frees up a ton of room in your closet.
In addition to what you layer on top of your dress or jumpsuit, don’t forget what you layer underneath. You’ll need to invest in more slips and shapewear, camisoles, tanks, tights, leggings, and skinny jeans. Some dresses can even have a vest or blouse layered on top or a long-sleeved top layered underneath. Your footwear will stand out more when wearing dresses so you may want a few more options. And don’t feel like you must wear heels as flats are fine.
Finally, while some dresses are designed for warmer or cooler weather, overall they are far more timeless so you can wear most dressed for years to come.
